Burgess Falls State Natural Area, located in Middle Tennessee, lies on the eastern edge of Tennessee's Highland Rim adjacent to the Cumberland Plateau and is noted for its natural beauty. Sheer bluffs, narrow ridges, rolling water and abundant mixed forest, characterize this area. The Falling Water River drops approximately 250 feet, providing numerous waterfalls, breathtaking scenery and overlooks. The park is home to over 300 species trees and plants and an abundance of wildlife. Park visitors can visit the large Native Butterfly Garden located adjacent to the upper parking lot.

Maybe the best of the Plateau waterfalls. Great overlooks and a moderate trail to the base of the falls. Awesome photo opportunities. Crazy packed on weekends (overflow parking lot fills fast)

Spectacular waterfall- one of my favorite Tennessee waterfalls!

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.
