East Tennessee

Saturday, May 6 | Fall Creek Falls State Park

MammothMarch is back!

We are thrilled to have secured Fall Creek Falls State Park for our second East Tennessee edition. Hike 20 miles in 8 hours and conquer one of Tennessee’s largest State Parks.

Our single-circuit hiking loop attracts nature-lovers and adventure-seekers likewise and offers everything the Park has to offer – from cascades, gorges, streams, and lush stands of hardwood timber to the actual Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern US.

Mastering our challenge, you will be exhausted, but proud and happy... as well as part of our amazing community of outdoor enthusiasts, hikers and MammothMarch addicts!
