One of Tennessee’s newest additions to the state park system, Cummins Falls is a long-time favorite destination for the locals. This 75-foot high waterfall may not be the tallest in the state (stay tuned for that), but it is stunning nonetheless. Its wide, multi-tiered falls can be explored by those willing to do some climbing, and there is nothing like jumping into the cool, refreshing water at the base.

While the actual falls are exciting and a fantastic relief on those hot, southern days, the hike in is an adventure in itself as well. One hike is about a mile one way, and the other is about a mile and a half. Both trails are steep and you will get your feet wet on the way. But that’s all a part of the adventure!

Note: A Gorge Access permit is required to visit the base of the waterfall, so plan ahead: use this calendar on the Tennessee State Parks website to book a permit.
