"On this trail you’ll wind down into Fall Creek Gorge and stand at the base of the 256-foot-high Fall Creek Falls, the tallest waterfall in the eastern United States."
--Russ Manning, 40 Hikes In Tennessee's South Cumberland (The Mountaineers Books).
"Take a hike to the namesake cataract of Tennessee’s most popular state park. Truly a gem of the Volunteer State, Fall Creek Falls, the plateau’s highest tumbler, drops 256 feet over a stone precipice into a rock-rimmed catch basin.First, enjoy an allaccess view with lots of others, then take the Base of Falls Trail through a geological wonderland of cliffs, boulder gardens and rock formations en route to a bottom-up perspective of this cataract. In wetter times, you will also view 250-foot Coon Creek Falls, which drops into the same pool."
