Upper Piney Falls

Located on the Cumberland Plateau adjacent to Grandview, Tennessee, Upper Piney Falls is a scenic waterfall standing 80-feet tall. It’s a relatively short hike on well-maintained trails, and dogs (leashed) are welcomed. Parking is limited. No restrooms.

Following the trail, hikers will encounter a split leading to the right (Upper Piney Falls) or left (Lower Piney Falls). Both routes do provide access to the base of Upper Piney Falls, where visitors can enjoy walking behind the waterfall, or cool off in the plunge pool.

The trail to the left is longer, though the trail to the right entails a steep mountain descent (using an installed support cable for balance), as well as crossing Little Piney Creek. This is easy with lower water levels, though not advisable when the creek is high.
