a lot of construction going on a few places you can't get to.. drove 2 hours so I was kinda upset I couldn't do everything! A bit of ice.. but over all a wonderful experience and will definitely be back.

One of our absolute favorites! I’ve hiked it with my kids since they were in hiking backpacks! It can be a little intimidating with kids if your kids aren’t well exposed to diverse trails but we have a “serious” talk before each hike explaining that hikes are fun but not a playground. We must respect the environment and watch each step because it can be dangerous if we don’t give our full attention to what we are doing.

Commercial Cave tour. Wouldn’t call it a tourist trap and the waterfall is not fake.

great waterfall right off the road

Can be tourist trap, but worth going to see! I wouldn’t go if you’re claustrophobic

The look outs near the top of the waterfall were closed because of structural damage but you can still get to the top. Best views are from the observation decks. Really short and easy hike. Don’t let the “strenuous trail” signs fool you. ;)

Cummins Falls is an amazing hike, with water crossings and an incredible waterfall at the end. Since it has been turned into a state park, it is VERY crowded on weekends! I would recommend a very early start if you’re going on a weekend, or try and do it through the week. In the winter, it’s much more difficult to get to the falls, but it can be done. A Cookeville/ Gainesboro treasure for sure!

Awesome hike! Did the hike to the base of the falls. It’s been raining the last few days so it was super muddy and slick but worth it. The way the rocks are makes it hard to get good footing - so I’d rate this more strenuous than moderate. Also hiked back up and did Cane Creek Falls over the suspension bridge. My husband , I and pup enjoyed the day exploring nature ! Check out Cane Creek Overlook if you’re looking for a good spot to stop and eat lunch.

We stopped in our way out of town. With all the recent rain, the trails were muddy but the water was running fast and it was SPECTACULAR! It was a moderate hike, need to watch younger children and your step. Highly recommended.

Great short walk with a river overlook just off the loop. Dog loved it too

Absolutely lives up to the hype. Great for kids and my dog. Two for one special of stunning falls at the bottom and the top and a suspension bridge for fun thrown in. Very cool hike.

Great spot off the road. Came after some big rains in the area, so the falls were flowing big time.

With recent rain, the waterfalls were incredible!! I’ve been here many times before, but have never seen them like this. Hoping they’ll eventually repair the broken overlooks, but still amazing views and a great short hike.

Great place! Highly recommend visiting. Probably best to go during the week or early on the weekends. There are places to swim all along the river all the way to the falls. As they do on the website I would recommend good shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. There is a loop but the trail closest to the falls is more treacherous. Also if you need a waterproof phone case or anything else there is a gift shop at the entrance of the park.

One of the loveliest places I've ever been. Easy walk with some stairs and tall trees. The waterfalls are breathtaking. Seen it twice and will be back again!

Even if you're not a hiker, this would be the one to do if you visit the park, super short hike for amazing views and wildlife

Beautiful! Wear a good pair of hiking boots or shoes to get to the bottom and back as it’s slippery. Sadly no pictures documenting my sister falling on her a**, but this occurred and was the result of poor footwear ;)

Alternatively, the hike to the top is very short and flat.

Nice peaceful hike. Not a whole lot of views after the falls at the start, but pretty nonetheless.

Absolutely gorgeous if you go all the way to the falls

on Bluff Trail

Not very scenic and walk through a bunch of power lines, weaving back and forth through them. Only one spot you can see anything at the bluff. Wouldn’t recommend during the summer because the mosquitos were horrible

This trail is great for seclusion and beautiful! Trail is strenuous as far as climbing the rocks to top of hill. We did lose the trail at the top and were unable to finish. Was difficult to follow due to all the leaves on the ground. We'll certainly return and if anyone has any pointers I'll gladly accept on navigating past the huge hill!

The path down is a little sketchy. Watch your footing. You have to walk along the river to get to the waterfall and you will have to cross twice. We didn’t bring water shoes or towels so we didn’t make it to the falls. Super pretty from above though. Not a hard hike.

This was a fun trail and worth the drive from Fall Creek Falls cabin area. Parking at Trailhead. You may need to pull into the parking area before you see the sign. Rocks make the trail slow going at times. We took our dogs with no issue, but broke the rules and had them off leash for the rocky areas with an elevation change. Will do this trail again!

The overlooking area is an easy hike with a little uphill and downhill. But if you will take the downstream to see the falls closer you have to be prepared as you will cross the river. But the hike is not bad, its just muddy and slippery on the side of the river. Overall it is an excellent hike and the price of the view is breathtaking.
