“Nice”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Nice visit and fall. New park in TN. Short trail to overlook to see falls. There is a longer trail to the bottom which we did not have time to do. Very nice floral in bloom. 20 miles from interstate. TN does not give mileage to parks.

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Initially saw Cummins Falls on an ad for one of the nations best swimming holes. It was all that and more. The 1.5 mile trek down the Downstream Trail to the base of the falls (and back) was one of the toughest hikes I've ever done - you need to be in good shape for this one! But the payoff was well worth it! The falls were breathtaking and the swim was refreshing and worth the effort. Cummins Falls is a must see!

“Great hikes and an amazing swimming hole”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The naturally formed swimming hole here has been rated in the US top 10! It's a hike to get to it (unless you are adventurous and climb down the bluff). Nice state park.

“New park is on its way to greatness”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a brand new park so there is some bare ground and other things you would expect with a place under construction but it is clearly going to be another shining star in the amazing State of Tennessee park system. Incredible falls!
