Located on the Falling Water River in Tennessee, Burgess Falls State Park is noted for its natural beauty and four waterfalls that cascade down from over 250 feet in elevation. A moderately strenuous 1.5-mile (round trip) trail along the edge of the gorge provides hikers with ample viewing opportunities, though, during my visit, one of the observation platforms was closed for repairs, as was a stairway leading to the base of Lower Falls. That said, it was nevertheless a very nice hike filled with compelling landscape scenery – highly recommended! And, a drinking fountain and restrooms are available, as is a convenient filling station for water bottles.
