Fall Creek Falls State Park

Sunday, December 13, 2015
Over the weekend on mid summer of 2015, my husband and I planned a short get-away to see Fall Creek Falls after hearing so many people talk about how amazing it is. I was intrigued by the designation that Fall Creek Falls is the highest free-falling waterfall east of the Mississippi River, and we were not disappointed. Another one of Tennessee's hidden treasures. My first time experience to Fall Creek Falls  I was amazed and breathless. The park is like oasis. The trail to Fall Creek Falls from the Nature Center includes a couple overlooks, and the Cane Creek Cascades was the most impressive. Fall Creek Fall is also pretty impressive, but the volume of water was a little low that day. But it was still gorgeous!

Maybe you remember "The Jungle Book" filmed in 1994.  If so the waterfall scenes were filmed at Fall Creek Falls State Park.

Fall Creek Falls is located between Spencer and Pikeville, TN on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau, this park is famed for its many waterfalls, including its namesake cascade with the single tallest free-fall East of the Mississippi. Some are easy to view such as the Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades. Others are more difficult to reach, such as the base of Fall Creek Falls down a steep and curvy path. 

To view more photos of  Falls located on this State park go to Cane Creek Cascades.

The waterfalls and nestled mountains are a dose of nature for the soul.



This park has lots of camp grounds(I'm not sure of the cost), tons of swimming holes, a few waterfalls and miles of hiking trails.
