PLEASE PLEASE pick up after yourselves if you bring food & drink. This is one of the finest gems nature has ever given middle Tennessee. The family has been gracious enough to allow us to continue public use of their private property so let's keep it clean so our future generations can marvel & enjoy her beauty. I grew up in Tullahoma & this was the highlight of my childhood. PLEASE be careful climbing down on the rocks. Take your time. I highly recommend you bring some closed toe river shoes & a change of clothes in the car. I actually wade in with my Justin boots to protect my feet. The water is spring fed so it's COLD. Bring a towel or two especially for the little ones. Enjoy & savor nature's beauty. It's one of a kind & I'd give anything to have something like this where I live now. Took it for granted. ENJOY ENJOY !!!!!!!!!

Easy walk! Parked at the church and walked maybe .25 before getting a perfect view of the waterfalls! Stopped there because the hike down to the actual base of the waterfall looked like a little much for my uncoordinated big dog. Gorgeous view! Easy 10 minute experience!

This place is a hidden gem. It is extremely difficult to get in and out of the falls, but it is worth it! We swam in the falls and strongly encourage water shoes. The rocks got slippery!

A beautiful hidden jewel. We went during the week and had the place was ours alone. You do have to be careful of your footing, especially if you have children (keep those hands held). The view was amazing, we enjoyed it so much. Limited parking near the road close to the church and portapotties are available near the parking lot. We thoroughly enjoyed it, just watch your step.

These falls are easily accessible for a view above them. The hike is very short. I would be cautious about attempting a descent to the bottom. It is certainly worth a stop. The property owners are very gracious to allow the public to enjoy the beauty of the falls and their property.

Have been 3 times. It is gorgeous HOWEVER you have got to be in EXCELLENT shape and VERY cautious to make the descent and ascent safely - very steep, slippery & requires extreme care. I do NOT agree that this is an "easy-access" area because once you are there you face daunting descent.
Yes Yes. THANK you to owners for allowing others access.
I have watched with alarm as teenagers attempt to scale the large lower falls. Not sure how many accidents have happened but one fall looks like it could be deadly since area at foot of falls is rocky.
Safest is to stay at the top and watch through trees as the large falls fall:-)

Short easy hike, absolutely stunning waterfalls. Totally worth a drive. Private property, but had parking at street and portapotties at the church parking across the road.

These very special and delightful falls are on private property and accessible due to the kindness of the property owners. Thank you to them for making this very special place available to the general public...and at no cost. The hike to the falls is short and not difficult as long as you are steady on your feet. It is well worth the small bit of effort as the falls are truly special. Grand and glorious to see and listen to. Note the fall tributaries on either side of the grand falls.

Easy walk to enjoy this lovely fall. It is on private property, so please mind the rules to view. Nice place to sit and enjoy the peacefulness of the fall

Only about 10 minilute walk to the falls through private property. (Appreciate the owners sharing it with everyone). Great picnic spot and be sure to hike to the top of the falls to see another cascade. We included a trip here with a hike to Machine Falls. Easy to do in one afternoon or morning. About 1 hour 20 minutes out of Nashville. Dog and kid friendly.
