South Cumberland is one of the newer Tennessee State Parks. Almost all of our park lies atop the Cumberland Plateau and, unlike most state parks, ours is made up of ten different areas located in four different counties. The Visitor Center is located between Monteagle and Tracy City on Highway 41. From here the various components of our park are managed. Visitors can also obtain information and directions from the visitor center.

Stunning views of the rolling hills of the area, beautiful lush green in late spring. Pretty easy trail, suitable for all ages. Just be aware with small children near the cliffs as it is all natural beauty so no guardrails or such.

This is a gorgeous waterfall, and sits in a beautiful rock amphitheater shaped area. Crossing a bridge just adds to the charm of this waterfall.

Love it! Just a little steep, but I made it around the the whole thing!

Breathtaking view/overlook in a couple different spots within 2 minute walk from the parking lot. Great for kids or handicap. Even seen two horses w/ riders on the overlook deck observing the sights.

A short, flat, and easy hike with some fantastic views at the end. Good for kids or people who aren't accustomed to more rigorous hiking, though the trail can be extended to 9+ miles if you're up for more of a challenge. Ample parking, well-marked trails, maps available, and easy to find using the GPS location in the AllTrails app.

it isn't a loop. We hiked way past the other red lines, but no loop. it is a beautiful rocky trail, even past the waterfall.

This place is only accessible on the weekends. When it says " year round" above it makes it sound like it's always open. It is not! The directions in the link are also wrong as stated by someone else. We missed this one cause we came on a Tuesday. Thanks All Trails!
