Beautiful falls !!

Drive to this quaint part of Tennessee, then park your car and a 2 minute walk and you are on top of the falls. It's simply a beautiful spot and worth the visit !!

Two minute walk from the parking lot. Walk over to the creek above the falls. Then walk down to it. Beautiful spot four seasons a year. Falls are viewable from several spots near the top or walk down to the bottom for a different vantage. Not long but steep( obviously). Hwy 70 is twisty-turny, the old Nashville - Knoxville route....

It is very easy to see the top of the falls from a short path from the road. Getting to the lower part can be tricky and slippery after recent rains. The trail is almost 100% rocks. Good hiking shoes and poles come in handy for the trip down. Parking is limited so try to go in off peak times.... More

We went because we heard from my parents who live in Crossville this was a good short hike to take with two young kids. What a great place for a short hike and a gorgeous waterfall. I would highly recommend going and stopping if you are in the area

This is one of my favorite places for a quick hike, sometimes there is barely a trickle of water landing on the rocks below, other times after heavy rains there is a large pool and multiple falls and cascades in the area. It is a beautiful place to explore no mater the amount of water.

Wear hiking shoes this is 100% rock climbing. The trail starts off the highway and descends straight down the boulders. The waterfall is a 110 vertical drop. This is so worth the hike. Try to time it at high Noon because of the way the sun casts over the hole you will get you best pictures if the sun is... More

We were on our way back from Gatlinburg, heading back home to Nashville. We had some time to kill and by chance were literally driving by this place when I searched for falls on the interstate. We back tracked and little and found it. The parking lot here is small, like 6 cars maybe, but you can also park across... More

My husband and I stopped here on our drive from Nashville to Knoxville. Some of the other reviews made it sound easy to see the waterfall. We found the parking area just fine and walked the path to the top of the falls. From there you could just see a small stream go over the edge. It was a bit... More

The original location was listed incorrectly but we found it. If you are driving to fast you will pass it. Just a small parking lot and would recommend parking so you face the street to make pulling out easier in case someone parks next to you. There are two main paths. The one that goes into the woods and a... More

Beautiful waterfall but very strenuous hike down the Boulder covered path. I am sure that it being July 31st and 90+ degrees made it seem that much harder. It is well worth the trip.
