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.

The hike was very easy so it's great for kids. The waterfall was beautiful and it was not crowded. I would definitely go again.

Great for families. We've been several times in the summers and the kids can wade at the bottom of the falls. Steep decent to the falls and of course you have to go back up.

Great hike for the family. Trails are clearly marked and easy to manage.

Note: no bathroom facilities. However if you go about a mile past the trail entrance, there's a Sonic and awesome Shell station. It serves meat and three and veggies as well as the regular stuff. I think it's at the intersection of 20 and 43
It's definitely challenging for beginners that are asthmatic and overweight. But it sure can be done. It's so worth it. The falls are full right now. Bring water shoes as there's plenty of opportunities to wade.

Fairly short and kinda steep descent to the falls (the walk back up is what makes this a 'moderate' trail). Decent path with a few boardwalks and stairs in the tricky spots. Nice reward. Pretty waterfall. Not a gusher, but a pleasant setting. For photographers: You face east when standing in front of the falls. Morning sun is okay, but late afternoons are better.

Good short hike. Downhill all way to falls, with moderate difficulty returning up hill. Trails marked well. Good for family.

Parts of this trail are a bit hard, but most is fairly easy. Lots of ups and downs. The main falls trail may only be a mile, but there's a ridge loop trail that will add another two ish miles. My Fitbit said 2.8 miles from today. Wishing people would keep their dogs on a leash or leave their mean ones at home.
