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.

Well worth this hike! Love that the last 1/4 mile is unfinished...adds to the adventure! Will definitely head back this fall as I could make out other smaller "falls" on bluffs to the trail left.

Really enjoyed our hike. We went to the bottom of the falls (left out of parking lot) and descended to the bottom of the falls. Beautiful. Followed the climbers loop to the second access. This section was rocky and climbed eventually to top of the ridge. Chatted up the climbers and listened to the creek. Looped back on top on the main trail back to the falls. About 2 hours. Going the other direction would have had us descending the climbers loop which would have been more difficult but we could have swam near the falls. Great day loop.

The hike down to the falls takes a maximum of like 20 mins. It's a pretty steep one but well worth it. the water stays cold even in the heart of summer.

beautiful waterfall. we walked on the very rocky lower trail to loop to the easier upper trail

The trail is under construction, but appears to be nearly finished. Caught the waterfall the day after a heavy rain. One of the best waterfalls that I have seen.

Hiked down to the falls then to Small Wild camp ground. Camped then back out the next morning. Beautiful views nice weather. Would be great day hike.
