50 acres on Hassell Creek (LONG Creek Frontage)
[49.7 acres per latest survey]

The property is located at the end of Capps Ridge Road, Lyles, TN (Dead End Public Road)

Everyone wants CREEK property!  Well it is rare to find property on Hassell Creek.  And this parcel has two HUGE waterfalls & two smaller ones!  The family has referred to the main waterfall as the (40' waterfall) for generations. I did not actually measure it's total height, but I stood there taking photos recently and it is quite an awesome sight! If you are just curious, viewing the waterfall is EASY! When you drive as far as you can drive on Capps Ridge Road (currently washed out for a few feet), walk straight ahead and you cannot miss the sound and beauty of the scenic waterfalls (2).  (By the way, you will have just viewed the smaller set of waterfalls.)  That's right...there is a LARGER waterfall just a few hundred feet away from this pair of waterfalls!

To view the larger waterfalls, continue walking the Capps Ridge Road to an open gate (about 200' beyond the first waterfall to the left).  This open gate is shown as a cemetery on the survey.  There are no longer graves in this cemetery.  Walk into this area and listen for the waterfall.  The falls are straight ahead about 200'.  Trust me - it is well worth the short hike to see this sight!

At one point in history, there existed a Saw Mill, a Grist Mill and a Leather Shop located just below these falls near Hassell Creek.  This was a very active business center 100 years ago.  As you walk around the creeks, branches, and springs, you might notice some old barrel hoops and rings and remnants of other "business activities"... definitely ideal settings for those famous moonshine stills.

There is a fairly level area just east of the larger waterfall, below the cemetery location.  Just imagine your private getaway cabin within site and sound of that amazing waterfall.

The survey is posted for those wishing to visit and hike the property.  View and download the survey under the Documents tab.

The photos posted under the Gallery tab were taken on Monday, Sept. 27th.  The larger pair of waterfalls were viewed and photographed on Monday, Oct. 4th.
