Spectacular waterfall- one of my favorite Tennessee waterfalls!
love this trail. the waterfalls are gorgeous
It was nice
I live in waterfall paradise in Oregon & Washington but Burgess Falls are as spectacular as the ones we have at home. The hike is easy and provides great views and wonderful for photography. I have posted some photos from last year (Nov 2015) when the rains were falling hard and the water is running high and added more from last week (Nov 2016) during the drought and both versions are beautiful. The Park Rangers also had some corn snakes for everyone to get up close & personal with and they were colorful creatures as well. I will come back next year and praying the area gets the much needed rain to put out the local fires and add more H20 to the river.
Nice views of the waterfall
Great views of the waterfall
Good, quick trail. Doesn't take long. Nice views of river and falls along the whole trail.
Do it !
Loved this trail. One of my favorites and the waterfall is spectacular. Sat beside it and enjoyed it for a long time before going back. Can't wait to hike this one again. So worth the trip.
