The natural area is named for its most significant feature, Stillhouse Hollow Falls, which can be seen by walking approximately 2/3 of a mile along the Stillhouse Hollow Falls trail. The trail crosses an unnamed tributary that forms small scenic cascades before plunging approximately 75 feet. Stillhouse Hollow Falls is a 90-acre state natural area located approximately 21 miles southwest of Columbia and three miles northeast of Summertown off Hwy US 43. The natural area is on the Western Highland Rim in the Duck River watershed. The geology of this region creates scenic natural features such as seeps, flat shale-bottom streams, and waterfalls, both small and large, which help shape the regions dissected topography.

This is a very nice short hike to the falls.The return is pretty steep though. The falls are nice and there is plenty of run for playing in the water. There is a small picnic table at the top of the falls. Also, under "facilities" it mentions that there is a bathroom, but that is not the case.

Did this last Memorial Day with our four kids. The youngest walker was three and she was able to do it on her own. We had one kid in a backpack. The trail was pretty and the falls were great.

Enjoyed the short hike. As a beginner hiker this was perfect exercise w a little cardio, but beautiful at the falls.

This is a great waterfall trail. Its a short hike down to the falls but, steep in a few areas, so wear good shoes. You'll venture over a couple of river crossings, see lots of interesting plantlife along the way and walk past remnants of an old house, only the chimney stands. My son and puppy could spend hours skipping rocks at the base of the falls. Bring a picnic, shoes for the water and your camera!

The Falls are amazing... The BF and I went on a mid to late Friday afternoon and it was almost empty. The hike is super easy if you like to hike, but overall a moderate with slight hills.. The trails are kept up so nice and the bridges are new. I would say is be careful when going into the old building that has fallen down. I got a nail in my shoe from stepping on something.

First time to hike this trail. Carried our 6 year old grandson and had a blast. Falls were beautiful after all the rain. Made some great photos
and even better memories.

Well worth the short hike. The Falls are gorgeous. Make sure you pay attention and look for the sign on the side of the road or you will easily miss it. One of the prettiest Falls I've been too. And I have hiked several in east TN.

Beautiful scenery and waterfalls.
The trail is well maintained. I love the fact that they put in so many bridges, walkways and stairs with grippers on them so they're not slippery. I also love the fact that you can go to the top of the falls and look down and then go all the way down to the bottom of the falls. It's really not a hard hike just the hills get you coming back out.

A great little hike. A cool afternoon but wonderful to see the ice and the waterfall. This trail has been improved over the last few years. It is very well marked and two bridges providing easy access to the fall.

Took our pup on a mid afternoon Saturday hike and despite a little bit of traffic on the trail, we had a great time! Everything was easily accessible and our pup was able to go everywhere we went, including the trail that led behind the waterfall. We would definitely recommend it for anyone who is local to the area!

Great hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. The trail is just off the highway. Nice parking area. I've been on this trail a few times. It is well maintained and is a good way to spend a few hours in the woods. If you are near the area of southern TN or northern AL it is recommend to check this trail out.

Falls are a must see. Can be accessed to view from both top and bottom. Can climb behind falls for classic waterfall experience. Neat old structure off trail on the way to base of falls. Paths are well blazed and trafficked but technical enough with roots and rocks to keep interesting. Natural path 95% of time. Plenty of elevation for great cardio. There is a high point/lookout at the end of an offshoot from the "Ridge Loop" trail. This lookout would be awesome once foliage is gone (blocked the view a little). Did the Ridge Loop trail both ways (twice) for variety of inclines. Definitely worth the trip if you are anywhere near the area.

Great little trail for a quick hike to a beautiful water fall!

Great hike! You can make this hike quite a bit longer by going straight over the bridge, instead of turning right. This leads to an ok overlook, and it's less traveled.
