Window Cliffs

Located on 275-acres only 18 miles south of Cookeville, Tennessee, Window Cliffs is a popular hiking destination…and for good reason!

Designated as a state natural area in 2014, a 5.3 mile out and back trail crosses water on nine occasions, with provision of fixed coated-cables to assist hiker stability while in the water. Hikers should expect to get wet when visiting (it’s impossible not too), traversing creeks with depths up to waist deep. The first creek is the broadest, spanning an estimated 60-feet across.

Proper hiking shoes are essential, and hikers can expect to remove his/her shoes on occasion during the visit, displacing pebbles. In addition, a walking stick or trekking poles are highly recommended.

There are several points of interest along the hike, including creeks, gorge walls, vistas, forests, dried rocky riverbeds, a 20-foot tall waterfall, scenic overlook of Window Cliffs, and where the trail concludes, at the top of Window Cliffs. I plan to return again in autumn to complete the hike, as I unfortunately sustained a minor injury along the way.
