very pretty. slippery rocks of course so make sure your shoes have tread on them before going. the trail winds from the land into the water to the rocks to get to the waterfall.

I’ve never been disappointed with my time on this trail. It can get busy and parking is difficult @ times. Don’t let it scare you; be patient - it’s worth the wait!

Was a nice hike to the falls, recommend going in to the right at entrance so you end at the falls. Took climbers access 2 and ended with 2.5 miles total

I’ve been coming here since I was a kid 28 years now this is the nicest park there is. Always a ton of wildlife out I’m glad they have the rules they have there it keeps things nice. Parking is difficult if you go on the weekends but besides that no complaints.

This trail has strict rules. No running very little view of the lake the first half. So many people was just very disappointed. The park was nice just limited. Won’t go back

gorgeous view and fun water hole to play in

Great place!! Short hike down stream then follow the river bed to the falls. Ton of people.

It has a whimsical winding staircase going down to the falls. Great waterfalls. The base can be seen from the top and bottom. At the top, a boulder can be climbed to see another mini waterfall. i want to go back. it was fun.

Love the beautiful fall and hike!!

This trail was awesome. Short and sweet, has cool rock formations and a cool little history behind the lake. This honestly felt like moderate difficulty to me, though. The trails aren’t super well marked but it’s still not that difficult to get around.

Great trails and mostly shaded which is great in TN heat! Plan ahead - no bathrooms.

Fun little hike and easy to do with smaller children. Hike to the base of the waterfall is short and the swimming hole is a lot of fun. We did the loop on the way out and was moderate in a couple of spots and was maybe 1.5 miles or so. We had 4 kids (13, 13, 10 & 10), and they did just fine. Fun little rock formations to play on.

The trail is well marked, the park itself is well kept. My dog was terrified of the staircase going down so I carried him. Haha. But once we were at the bottom we enjoyed swimming and the peaceful atmosphere.

Had a great time this past Sunday with the family. Kinda short but fun.

Beautiful falls and fairly easy and maintained trails.

Great scenery. Lots of rocks, some loose. They aren’t kidding when they say wear water hiking shoes. You have to go through water to get to the falls. The falls are beautiful! And worth the hike. But be careful. Expect to get wet. The swimming hole is perfect. Water temp very refreshing. Went on. Friday afternoon. Very very crowded but didn’t really slow us down.

Nice trail. Great scenery along the water the whole way. But very short and no access to the water. Wow went on a Friday early afternoon so not too crowded.

Beautiful scenery! Lots of people.

Very strenuous but extremely beautiful. Wear waterproof hiking boots or good sandals because my feet got soaked

Great hike to many people.

My husband and I took our kids (10 & 6) on this loop. We loved it! The only problem was that we missed the memo that we were supposed to turn on climber’s access #1 to make the turn back, and instead added an extra mile to our loop by turning onto climber’s access #2. Be ready for rocky, climby fun with some gorgeous sights!

great elevation. it is winding. it is narrow so can't walk side by side with a friend. saw some frogs. leads to a circle of wooden benches.

good hike for a hot day very crowded watch the slick rocks saw a few people go down in the creek and one at the falls and one being taken out on a stretcher only 4 * because so crowded

kinda hiking but more like climbing down to the falls. it was fun. beautiful. hard climb down. turquoise water.

Cummins Falls is a beautiful place. Unfortunately way too crowded now that it is a state park. People do not wear proper footwear, carry too much stuff and leave trash and things behind.Just did it a couple of weeks ago with two of my kids, but the trail is tough going back up, so don't wear yourself out at the Falls. Be respectful, be careful on the water crossing, carry out all of your stuff and Enjoy!

Very easy hike. You just have to climb some stairs. The falls are spectacular.

I did this trail on July 7th. the falls, all three, were the best part of this moderate trail. Greeters Falls was getting busy when I was there but the water was so refreshing. I blazed my own trail for the third falls by hiking up the rocky river bed past the fork.
it was more strenuous and had a better view of the gorge.
The trail went out to the rim and had some panoramic views. If you stay on it, it will hook up with a couple other Savage Gulf trails.
Though this wasn't a particularly hard trail, it just kept giving more spectacular features. I made it into a 5.5 miles and 1150 feet elevation hike. Now that's a good workout.
