Getting There

An 883-acre State Park with great views and a unique location on the confluence of the Collins and Caney Fork rivers. The park grounds include a lush forest, a sandy beach, and an imposing limestone gorge. Lots of waterfalls and overlooks throughout! https://tnstateparks.com/parks/rock-island Pretty easy out and back trail with plenty of views. Be careful with kids or people not used to balancing. The trail can get narrow in spots. Rock hopping on the river can be very fun but gets pretty dangerous. There is more to this trail and other trails not shown on the map link included. Warning! Always use caution in the gorge. Water may rise rapidly. Monitor your surroundings. Leave the gorge immediately if water begins to rise or you hear warning sirens. Watch for slick rocks & swift currents. Do NOT jump into water of unknown depths. Swimming or wading is not allowed in all areas from TVAs powerhouse downstream all the way down to the main beach boat ramp including by the powerhouse, Twin Falls and Blue Hole due to hidden and deadly currents.

HOURS OF OPERATION Park Hours: 7 a.m. 10 p.m. CT Office Hours: 8 a.m. 4 p.m. CT

Great hike. Some of the trail was flat and easy. Other parts were a little more difficult. Really pretty. Several falls in one place.

It was nice. You can see the waterfall immediately and you walk the rest just down a river. Lots of branches and rocks but that’s the point. Waterfall was pretty.

Easy trail, short, with beautiful scenery. Several falls along the way. Calm, small trails off the main trail to see more if you want!

Falls are amazing, but you don’t need the hike to see them. Hike down stream covered in poison ivy. Would be good if you’re looking to fish.

Waterfalls are seen .5 miles but loop is nice. Uphill starts mainly after falls.

Short, fairly easy hike with a couple hills and one ladder. The terrain is not level for most of the trail. Beautiful views! Watch kids and dogs that may get close to the edge.

Relatively easy, verrryy rock and parts are wet so be prepared with appropriate footwear. Falls were awesome. Went during winter and it he icicles were amazing! Saw a river otter running down the trail with a fish in it's mouth.

Pretty easy walk. A bit trecherous if you decide to get near base of falls on the rocks. Interesting, not sure if falls are natural or the results of the dam. Nice outing.
