My husband and I decided to take a drive and we ended up at South Cumberland State Park where we discovered a two(ish) mile loop that had three waterfalls to view along the trail. Coming from our beautiful home state of Oregon where waterfalls are...More

This is a short trail loop which goes to Blue Hole, a nice swimming hole, which is to your right off the trail. Greeter Falls is up from Blue Hole and to the right on the trail. If you follow the trail past Greeter Falls...More

Going to start this out with a cautionary note. Please wear good solid hiking boots; trails can be quite muddy and slippery. There are no rails, if you fall - it’s a long way down. I wouldn’t recommend this for people with small children or...More

This is one of the most picturesque waterfalls I've been to. Very short hike but it is a pretty steep climb and it can be very slippery when wet or muddy. I was amazed at the people taking very small children on this hike and...More

We went there in when it was raining at the beginning of July. This is a very tough and at times dangerous path to take to both the upper and lower falls, I wouldn’t try this without the right hiking boots on regardless if it’s...More

The hike to the bottom of the falls is a little bit strenuous for most under 6 and over 55. When you get there it is worth it. Try to go off peak time/day. It was a bit crowded.

A great hidden falls! My wife and I went on Memorial Day weekend about an hour before sundown and we were the only ones there. It's about 40 feet tall with a swimming hole to boot. It has a spiral staircase on the way down...More

Absolutely beautiful! I will say getting down to the falls was really a challenge! It's a short hike, but not an easy one. The descent even involves a spiral staircase on the side of the mountain at one point. I will say that I have...More

I am a waterfall chaser, I've been waiting to see this waterfall for a while. The hike down was very nice, but when we got to waterfall it looked like someone was pouring cups of water off the cliff, so disappointing. I'm sure this is...More
