“Nice beautiful scenic walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nice beautiful scenic walk, but secluded at times. I enjoy walking the trail with family to be safe.

“Tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I actually live near this area and it is very beautiful. If you hike just a little while you can see Machine Gun Falls. The waterfall is awesome and you can even swim in the creek if you like. Very nice for outdoor lovers.

“Prettier Falls than in Great Smoky Mountains National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Sublime Machine Gun Falls!!! What an incredible treasure right here in Tullahoma! The short hike is very nice, very peaceful with few other hikers, a bit tricky as you get closer to the falls, but the view is worth every effort! Love to pack a lunch and picnic by the falls! It is so beautiful that we were even disappointed when we saw the Laurel and Grotto falls in the Smokies: small falls and crowded trails. Now we know that there is no need to travel all the way there when the best falls are just around the corner!

“Wish we could go again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We went with our two daughters 4 and 6 and hiked the Busby Falls trail. It was beautiful and had some great photo opportunities along with some wading/swimming spots. For adult experienced hikers there are some spots to get close to the bigger falls and the Machine Gun falls trail has the best waterfalls but we were told that the hike would be too much for the kids. Definitely make the trip if your within an hour, you will.be glad you did!

“A great place to spend the afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Wonderful network of trails to several waterfalls - the largest and most impressive being Machine Falls. Fantastic in early spring when the wildflowers are in bloom.
