this trail is overly easy. a 5 year old girl scout troop could enjoy doing this. so if you complain about this trail or its condition, just know there's a girl scout somewhere laughing at you. if you want nicely groomed/paved trails, go to a city park and enjoy being a Nancy.

Great hike. improvements are continuing to be made.

Wow! The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of people. The hike back out was pretty steep, but well work the trip.

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.

This is a short hike with a great, refreshing reward at the end. Beautiful! We will hike this one again.

Nice hike with nice falls. We added busby falls to the loop just to play in the water more

Love Percy warner parks

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

Great hike if living in the Nashville area. I enjoy it because it's easily accessible after a day at the office and can get some good incline along with miles without it being too far outside the city. I recommend bringing hiking poles. There are some steep areas and the poles make it nice. I hiked it during dusk and you see all sorts of wildlife at that time.

We came with our four kids, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8. We decided to go counterclockwise which I think was the right move. We already got the payoff of seeing the falls before we had to climb up the stairs, so we had no choice. :) We had the youngest boy in an Ergo, but the older girls all handled the trail—and the stairs—just fine. The trail was clearly-marked, but it did help to have downloaded the map from AllTrails just to be sure we were on the right path.

The falls were incredible, some of the best we’ve seen around. We really loved that the pools are wade-able, and you don’t have to decide you want to go swimming in the cold to get close. Combine that with a really wide, really beautiful cascading waterfall, this one is near the top of our list.

It was a nice change of scenery just outside of Nashville. Lots of trail runners. The terrain is fairly rocky with occasional smooth dirt coverage. Fairly maintained trail with good shade. I found this to be a pretty strenuous hike, took 2.5 hours to complete loop taking a water break every couple miles. 6.2 miles total in and out.

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

Very enjoyable with such varied terrain. Lots of trail traffic but everyone was very nice and enjoying the morning temperatures. Hats off to those running the trail.

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 trail!

Beautiful scenery! Lots of people.

Great hike to many people.

Originally headed to Blue Hole when we started our hike in the park but headed toward all the falls to the right after going down the stairs & we saw the beautiful different falls here--and the hundred people enjoying the swimming hole (which all but my daughter forget our suits)...will definitely go back again for the cliff jumping!! kids & dogs were out there but for little kids--be careful because there is a lot of climbing on rocks & WEAR COMFY WATER SHOES because you will get your feet wet! You will not be disappointed!!

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

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!

We parked at Baker Bluff, checked out the overlook and got on the trail to Jackson Falls. It was a good little hike (15 - 20 minutes maybe), but the waterfall was more of a trickle than a beautiful cascade. It’s probably really awesome in the Spring and anytime when there’s been a day or two of rain.

It wasn’t too crowded when we were there. There were some families with young kids and dogs and they all seemed to be having a great time splashing around.

Pretty easy hike. We took our 3 boys: 5, 6 years and a 5 month old in a baby carrier. The down slope wasn’t bad as long as you take it slow. We will definitely be back!

Definitely my favorite trail in Nashville. The PW Trail is complex enough to get the heart pumping at times, but easy enough so any can do it. I love the scenery and stepping out of the chaos of the city and into the beautiful, plush greenery at PW. Highly recommend this trail to anyone who loves a little challenge and workout!

Hike in was easy until you start dropping down to the falls, it had rained day before so it was a little slick in spots, had to watch where you were stepping for sure. The rain had made the falls run really full, it was beautiful! Hike out was super easy!
