The falls are considered to be the most impressive and scenic waterfall in East Tennessee. The Bald River is short and powerful, flowing through a steep densely wooded valley and replenished by the area's rains. At the falls, the waters plummet over huge grey rocks, into a round pool at the base, popular for swimming. As the seasons change so does Bald River Falls, each season brings out different characteristics of the falls.

The Bald River Falls Trail can be reached above the Falls, and follows the Bald River through deciduous forest and over numerous embankments and cascades along the river. It is 5.6 miles to its end on FS126, and is rated as a moderate hike. The Bald River and 3721 acres of its watershed are part of the Bald River Gorge Wilderness, designated as a wilderness area by the US Forest Service.
