A few tips if you are visiting:
There are a few creek crossings. Bring water shoes or plan on getting your feet wet! It’s really not that bad!
It’s helpful to have a walking stick – you will be going up some steep areas!
Creeks, waterfalls and super high bluffs. It’s worth the hike all the way to the bluffs!
It helps to view the map at the entrance on the large board. You will see the lay of the park. When you get to the creek at the bottom, continue straight. This will lead you to the waterfall as well as the bluffs.
This is close to Burgess Falls, but the two are not connected. This is also close to Cookeville Boat Dock.
It’s easy to spend the day here! It’s a little over 5 mile hike with plenty of places to sit and take a break!
It’s an odd entrance with large silos and barns – you may feel like you are on private property. Drive until you see the large sign and parking lot!
This place is breathtaking. Visit anytime, but may we suggest fall when the leaves change! It’s a panoramic view! These photos were taken October 21, 2020. The leaves tend mid-October through early November. Anytime during those weeks are ideal!
