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

A nice, short, trail along a beautiful river! The falls are breath taking. The trail starts with twin falls and there are other falls along the trail.

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.

Nice little hike, but the eye candy is top notch. If you’re looking for miles, this ain’t it but if you’re good with a smaller hike with lots to see, do not pass this one up. We will do this one again next time we’re in the area.

Super easy trail and such a pretty waterfall. The waterfall is clearly the main attraction but I had lots of fun exploring along the River bank on my own.

Beautiful not difficult I would recommend boots just because there’s some low creek crossings. Sitting on a rock and meditating is a great way to heal the soul. Highly recommend

This is always a great classic trail. Starts with a bang. View Twin Falls for most of your walk down the trail. Go all the way to the end and take in the view as the sun bounces off the water and the bluff rises above you. Heavily trafficked, well marked, super easy for all skill levels. If you go rock hopping down to get a closer look, don’t get caught in the gorge when the sirens go off. It means water is being released from the dam and the water will rise quickly.

Trail is a little rocky, but not strenuous at all. Beautiful views. The kayakers playing in the rapids was a bonus!
