Been hiking at Short Springs for years now, and it is a jewel of a place. There are 4 loop trails in all, and a person can get in a good 5+ mile hike doing all of them, and it will give you a good workout. Each loop has something special to offer, and if you go you'll sell yourself short if you don't check them out. Machine Falls is a knockout, and there are several other smaller fall along Bobo Creek. A couple of uphill pulls that you will feel, but nothing overly strenuous. Well worth a trip to Tullahoma.....I HIGHLY recommend.
Enjoy this pretty often. Close to where I live.
One of my frequently visited trails. Great for trail running and paths clearly marked.
Excellent waterfall. Great views. Nothing negative to say.
I would rate this as easy. Good one to take your kids on. My 4 year old son and 4 month old pup did just fine doing the loop. Overall great short hike marked very well. Would definitely recommend and absolutely will be back.
Short, fairly easy (some man-made and natural step descents might test your balance) loop trail to a very rewarding view of a beautiful waterfall. The last 100 yards are either on a narrow ledge or in the creek. Getting the best photos requires wading in calf-deep water. Pack boots/waders.
Awesome trail - one of my favorites :)
Did this with a 4 month old and 6 yr old. Great hike! Right before the falls is the only part that is tough. Worth your time.
