There was a very short hike to the Falls overlook, which is partially obstructed by trees. Then, we went on to the suspension bridge, and over and down to the creek above the Falls. Apparently it is near impossible to actually hike to the base of the Falls, so just enjoy the hike, and what can be seen! We really... More

One of the easier waterfalls at Fall Creek State park in Tennessee to access. The beauty of nature in unspoiled and natural surroundings.

[--] The crazy Tennessee Christmas time weather (warm and sunny) sent me outdoors. Growing up I saw the signs, but never stopped. This natural area is located on Hwy 68 between Crossville and Spring City, TN., respectively. If you are looking for an easy hike (about a mile) to not one but TWO falls I recommend Piney Falls. Please be... More
