Located on the Cumberland Plateau along the Blackburn Fork River, near Cookeville, Tennessee, Cummins Falls stands 75-feet tall, representing the eighth largest waterfall (by volume of water) in the state.
Because it’s so popular, the state park has instituted an inexpensive online permitting system, required in advance for all visitors interested in hiking the gorge. The trail to the waterfall is 1.5 miles, and hikers can expect to get wet because, at points, the riverbed is the trail – roughly knee deep.
The area is prone to flash flooding, so children twelve & under must be accompanied by an adult, as well as wear a life jacket while at the falls or swimming. In case of emergency, signs are posted which indicate safe levels during a flood, and there is an evacuation route.
There’s a waterfall overlook (no permit required). Ample parking. Restrooms available. Water shoes recommended. Dogs allowed. Bring your camera to capture an abundance of scenic beauty!

Just about every angle of this waterfall was conducive for photography, including this view of stepped-layers of rock at the base. I’d wanted to visit this spot for several months, and I’m now certainly glad to have done so! You can see more in my gallery at Pixels.

With an early start, I was the first person to arrive at Cummins Falls, and enjoyed the tranquil setting for over an hour. Though the volume of water flowing over the 75′ waterfall was less than full, it was a pleasant visit which I can recommend to anyone in the area! Visit my gallery to see more.
It was a quiet morning as I hiked in a gorge along the Blackburn Fork River. My destination was just over a mile ahead – Cummins Falls. A winding riverbed introduced turn after turn, with brief views around each bend. Finally, as I walked underneath a rock outcropping, I was there. See more in my gallery.
