Back To Lost Creek Falls

Recently, I returned to one of my favorite spots – the Lost Creek State Natural Area. It’s one of those places with which the presence of water correlates strongly with both season and rainfall. As such, it’s often dry and visitors might do well to research conditions in advance, prior to visiting. This was my 3rd visit – see more from last time.

Located on the Cumberland Plateau near Sparta, Tennessee, the 50-foot tall Lost Creek Falls (N35 50.442, W85 21.660) sits atop a massive network of caverns. It’s water source flows from a cave (see below) on the mountain, and, after splashing down into the plunge pool, water from the falls vanishes underground.

If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery at Fine Art America to select the print type which best suits your interests.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Tiffany 🙂 It’s really a nice place, and quite close to the parking area. Water comes out of caves in the mountain, over the falls, then vanishes back into an underground river – pretty cool. Walt Disney did some filming here, in 1994 for “The Jungle Book” (at the waterfall, and the large cave opening), too…a bit of trivia.
