This torrent is the centerpiece of a newer Tennessee state park. Cummins Falls occurs where brawling Blackburn Fork—a state scenic river—drops into an impressive canyon. A short walk takes you to a vista of the falls, but adventurous hikers can descend to the stream then work their way to the base of the multitiered, high-volume fall. Summertime trail trekkers will be rewarded with a dip in the huge rock-walled swimming hole.
