Located on the Cumberland Plateau along the Blackburn Fork River, near Cookeville, Tennessee, Cummins Falls stands 75-feet tall, representing the eighth largest waterfall (by volume of water) in the state.
Because it’s so popular, the state park has instituted an inexpensive online permitting system, required in advance for all visitors interested in hiking the gorge. The trail to the waterfall is 1.5 miles, and hikers can expect to get wet because, at points, the riverbed is the trail – roughly knee deep.
The area is prone to flash flooding, so children twelve & under must be accompanied by an adult, as well as wear a life jacket while at the falls or swimming. In case of emergency, signs are posted which indicate safe levels during a flood, and there is an evacuation route.
There’s a waterfall overlook (no permit required). Ample parking. Restrooms available. Water shoes recommended. Dogs allowed. Bring your camera to capture an abundance of scenic beauty!
