I loved the falls but your are going to hike to the base of the falls I would be very hesitant to take small children very steep and rocky you also have to wade the creek/stream

We were staying in Blue Ridge, Ga for a weekend of zip lining and whitewater rafting in Ducktown, TN. I came across the trip advisor 10 beauiful swimming pools and Cummins State Park was about 3hours away and decided to check it out after reading several of the reviews. It was amazing. I also visited Raven Falls, Dukes Creek Falls... More

My wife and I enjoyed a day together at the falls. This is truly a gem. A great place for the family, however, caution, one can become injured walking across the slick rocks. Enjoyed the waterfalls greatly!

We visited on a Summer Thursday. The park opened at 8am, we arrived at 8:30 (we were the first ones in the parking lot) and hiked down the marked shortcut trail. We were a bit hesitant from a past review of a shortcut path because she mentioned that you needed to be nimble like a goat and that it was... More

The hike takes 20-25 minutes but it is worth it. This place is something from a tropical island. Just watch out for the slick rocks once you get there.

This place is beautiful and a hidden gem. They have 2 park rangers that are walking around and helping with directions. Tip: Don't bring a ice chest or cooler. Not allowed. I had a shoulder strap cooler and that was okay. Don't even think about bringing beer or any alcohol of any kind. The hike down was okay. The hike... More

Some stair would be really nice! The hike there is awesome! The falls is even more awesome. I would go here twice a week if I could

My wife and I made the trip over there for the afternoon and had a great time. Water is awesome and refreshing. Make sure to wear good shoes that you can get wet. Bring food and have a picnic!

Like other reviewers, I saw this on the top 14 worldwide natural pools. The place is naturally beautiful. The hike to the river was steep, but very worth the trip. The trail was fairly well maintained. Once you get to the river, however, is where the real challenge lies. You must trek the nearly half mile river bed through a... More

This is a beautiful piece of nature that is worth the extra effort to get to. Wear old shoes (or something designed to walk through the water) and your swimwear because the water is awesome! Nice and cold when you jump in, cooling you from the sweaty trek, but almost like bath water when you're under the falls. The view... More
