The Sinks is accessed off of Little River Rd, 11.8 miles west of the Sugarlands Visitor Center on Little River Rd. Look for a left turn into the small parking area. The viewing areas are right off of the parking lot. If you don't want to stop, you can drive slowly over the bridge and look down. The Sinks is more of big cascade than a waterfall, so if the area is crowded, don't be too disappointed if you don't get to stop.
Meigs Falls is on a tributary of the Little River and is generally viewed from a parking area along Little River Rd (TN 73). From the Sugarlands visitor center, drive 12.9 miles west on Little River Rd and pull off along the stone wall on the left. You would have passed The Sinks about a mile back. The Little River runs parallel to the road at this point and unfortunately the waterfall is up the tributary on the other side of the river. The river runs swiftly in normal flow, so it isn't safe to cross for a closer look. The maps don't show a trail going to the waterfall, but I saw a guy up near the falls on one visit. Not sure how he got over there...
