The south end of the Cumberland Plateau has some of the wildest, roughest country in Tennessee. Sheer bluffs border deep gulfs—what natives call gorges. In these gorges flow wild streams strewn with rock gardens hosting a variety of vegetation. Intermingled within this is a human history of logging and mining that has given way to the nonextractive use of nature: ecotourism.

We stopped to hike this area on our way to Missouri, we spent half the day and we had a great time. It was myself (carrying 2 year old son on back) my wife and 9 year old daughter. First we hiked up the trail to the top of the falls, which was very easy hike to an amazing view of the falls from above. We then hiked down the very well maintained path, which was very steep but we never felt like it was too much. When we got to the bottom we crossed over the river on a suspension bridge and walked to the base of the falls and took some amazing pictures! We then followed the trail away from the falls along the river to were there was climbers and watched some of them ascend the vertical wall. This is an amazing area and we will return again soon!
