Located near Cookeville, Tennessee, the Cummins Falls State Park features a 75-foot tall waterfall that carries the eighth largest volume of water in the state, annually. Visitors will get their feet wet hiking to visit this picturesque sight, and it’s definitely worth the trek.
You can enjoy my photography in a print on your wall at home or in the office, when you select the perfect accent piece from the following galleries:
Visitors of the Smoky Mountains can reach Chimney Tops – a mountain that the Cherokee Indians called Duniskwalguni, meaning ‘forked antlers’ – after a two mile hike along a steep trail. It’s a beautiful view, and one that you can enjoy everyday on prints available in my gallery at Fine Art America. I hope you’ll visit and find something you like, either for yourself or to give as a gift. Thanks!

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.

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.

Just across the street from the parking lot at Look Rock is the Look Rock Tower Trail. It’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail through the forest, though the grade is steep. At the end, you’ll encounter a very tall concrete structure…
On top, the observation area provides visitors with a 360-degree panoramic view, including the Smoky Mountains to the east and the Cumberland Plateau to the west. The spiral staircase is locked and off limits, with equipment for monitoring air quality and communications.
Though both the elevation and proximity to taller mountains are less than that of Clingmans Dome, the views are really wonderful and the area is much more peaceful…in fact, the only other people I saw were a couple leaving as I arrived.
Located along the old section of the Foothills Parkway, near Townsend, Tennessee, approximately 11 miles from US-321, visitors can enjoy expansive views of the Smoky Mountains from both Look Rock, as well as Look Rock Tower.
