A small park with a good hiking trail that follows a fast moving creek. The first falls we witnessed was great but the larger falls was unbelievable. This is a must see if you are in this area!

Burgess Falls is a beautiful place. The park provides a hiking trail, playground facility, picnic tables and of course nature's beauty. If you're looking for a great day outside, pack your lunch and head to Burgess Falls. You will enjoy it.

We hiked these falls after visiting Burgess Falls. This hike was pretty easy even though the signs indicated it could be strenuous. The first portion from the parking lot past the middle falls is quite easy. Everything I read said there are 3 sets of falls but to me there are really 4 sets. The first 2 are close to... More

You can either walk along a semi-rough trail that goes along the river, seeing Lower and Middle Falls or you can take a quicker, gravel/paved path through the forest to see the main Burgess Falls. The Falls themselves are beautiful and very tall. You can't tell from the pictures but they are huge. There are steps leading down to the... More

If you like to hike, walk, enjoy beautiful scenery and oh the falls! My favorite time to go is Spring. Fall Colors are amazing. Great destination for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Great Park and Waterfalls. We visited Burgiss Falls 1st thing that morning before the crowds. I wish the water was deeper but that is determined by the rainfall. ;-) I spent some time exploring the various levels of the Falls which was fun but very precarious. The water splashing on your body is the greatest feeling. Bring a snack, drink,... More

The drive from the highway is very scenic and enjoyable especially if you are from the suburbs and city. There are two paths to the big fall. The first is gravel with an incline. The other is more scenic as you will go through the trees around the river and see 2 smaller falls. It was on our way from... More

It is a beautiful collection of waterfalls. The site is hidden and a wonderful treasure to see while traveling through East Tennessee.
