  • Rocky Gorge

    Rocky Gorge

    Featuring Cummins Falls, this landscape photograph is somewhat deceiving (based on scale). What I mean is that the waterfall is actually 75-feet tall, and the plunge pool at the base extends forward a similar distance. Also, the larger slabs of rock strewn about are typically 10-feet wide.

    If you’d like to fill an empty space on a wall in your home or office, I encourage you to visit my galleries at Pixels and ArtPal to find the perfect accent piece!

  • Cummins Falls

    Standing 75-feet tall and carrying the eighth largest volume of water in the state of Tennessee, this waterfall at the Cummins Falls State Park is a picturesque travel destination located in Cookeville.

    Inexpensive permits are required to enter the gorge, where a 2.4 mile out and back trail along the Blackburn Fork River offers scenic landscape views. There are two river crossings, so hikers should expect to get wet. Alternatively, visitors may opt to enjoy an elevated view of the falls from an observation platform, without fee.

    Prone to flash flooding, 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 also an evacuation route.

    Despite seasonally low water levels and very cold water, yesterday, the area is nevertheless beautiful and certainly worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. Facilities include restrooms and a gift shop, and dogs are welcome.
