The scenic beauty of this wooded park is dominated by the Great Falls of the Caney Fork River - an imposing limestone gorge (called a gulf in southern culture). It provides scenic overlooks, waterfalls and deep pools for fishing, rock-hopping and exploring. Located at the confluence of the Collins and Caney Fork Rivers, this 883-acre park has a natural sand beach on Center Hill Resevoir. Historic features of the park include a 19th century textile mill and one of Tennessee's early hydroelectric plants

This is a great trail, but it is not easy. Very fun, just beware if you have little kids or others in your group that this should not be rated as easy.

I don't know why this is classed as easy, except it's short and they have placed stairs and and cables to assist in the climb at the top half. The same caves that create the great falls, also create falls along the entire length of the bluff, and several portions of the trail a flooded. Jewel Weed is everywhere, and that attracts hummingbirds, so we saw several dozen, plus a Peregrine Falcon and Osprey and several song birds. Recommend a camera, bird book, and water shoes for this short hike.

Super disappointing hike. The falls are at the trailhead, and it's such a short hike with nothing to really look at. The trees are really young as well so it's just a super big disappointment.

Twin Falls is a beautiful waterfall, and you can rock hop right to the river where the base is (or kayak, etc to the actual base of the falls). We didn't particularly follow any one trail here, mostly rock hopped and climbed around the area to the upper falls (also incredibly beautiful). Lots of spiders enjoying these rocks as well so wear appropriate footwear and use caution.

Nice vantage points to see the falls . Beautiful place for a picnic on the boulders .
