Trout LilyBy river: Some additional information This section of the river (at average water flow or less) is easy paddling with only one section of white water, Angel Falls. Angel Falls is located approximately 1.5 miles down stream from Leatherwood Ford. While I don't consider Angel Falls to be a water falls it is definitely an area to be portaged (carry your equipment and boat around) by all but experts who have scouted it first.

Directions to Cane Hollow:
From I-40 Knoxville/Nashville take exit #286 (Burgess Falls Rd/Willow Ave) near Cookeville and go South. approximately 20 miles to Livingstone Tennessee. Once in Livingstone turn left at the 3rd red light next to McDonalds. Follow this by pass to the first red-light and turn left again.
