Rainbow Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee is named after the rainbow often visible amid the waterfall. The fog from the 80-foot waterfall creates a natural prism, which refracts light and makes the rainbow effect.

Rainbow Falls was created by the erosion of the rocks in the area, which made a steep drop in the stream bed. The waterfall has been present for thousands of years, and it continues to shape the landscape around it through erosion.

Regarding cultural folklore and traditions, Rainbow Falls has been a popular destination for hikers and visitors to the park for many years. The waterfall was historically used as a landmark for travellers and loggers in the area, and it has been the subject of many stories and legends over the years. According to some accounts, the waterfall was believed to be the home of a mythical creature called a "water dog," which was said to be a guardian of the falls. Today, the waterfall is a popular destination for hikers, photographers, and nature enthusiasts who enjoy the beauty of the waterfall and the surrounding forest.
