Water follows gravity under a wooden bridge, over small ledges and across a striated rock-surface. I shot this photograph along a small stream at Falls Creek Falls State Park. Prints and other items are available in my galleries at Pixels and/or Fine Art America. Enjoy!
I hope you’ll find a print for your home or office!
Hiking through a forest near Spencer, Tennessee, I came upon this scenic waterway named Paw Paw Creek. Prints and more available.
Cane Creek Cascades is located in the Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Spencer, Tennessee. It was raining on-and-off during my visit in the early morning hours, and this image represents a stack of 20 individual photographs shot in close succession. It’s available on a variety of fine quality prints & more – visit my gallery at Pixels.

Located in Tennessee within the Fall Creek Falls State Park, Piney Falls stands 95 feet tall and offers scenic views from an overlook near the parking area. Unfortunately, there are no unobstructed views from the canyon rim. Also, the suspension bridge near the falls is currently closed for repairs. However, there is a difficult trail to the base of the gorge which provides a better view. During winter months, hikers should be weary of slippery ice near the falls.

Following several days of rain, I had the opportunity to return to the Fall Creek Falls State Park, located in Spencer, Tennessee, which features the state’s tallest waterfall at 256-feet. In contrast to rather dry conditions observed during an earlier visit, the water was substantial – thunderous!

Upon arrival at the Betty Dunn Nature Center (10821 Park Road, Spencer, TN), guests can enjoy two designated areas overlooking Cane Creek Gorge. Here are pictures of Cane Creek Falls (left, 85-feet), and another waterfall. One overlook provides easy access for handicapped visitors, also.
Note: current park renovations include the suspension bridge across Cane Creek – closed until further notice. As such, visitors will need to drive four miles to the parking area at Fall Creek Falls. From there, hiking trails are open – all the way back to Cane Creek. The following pictures highlight the bridge status in June 2019 and January 2020:

Part Three – Fall Creek Falls
This is my third & final post highlighting Tennessee’s Fall Creek Falls State Park. I’d recommend this park for anyone interested in hiking and/or photography. Consider planning your visit following a period of rain, so that waterfalls will be robust.
Having enjoyed both Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades, I was ready to continue my journey. Across Cane Creek, I found the trail rough at times, though could soon hear the sound of falling water emanating from the next gorge ahead.
At an impressive 256-feet, Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. Here are photographs as I approached the falls & gorge:
Here’s a view of Fall Creek Falls, as seen from the designated observation platform:
It’s difficult to convey the true sense of enormity of this gorge and waterfall, so I’ve included the following photographs of people at the base of the falls. The red arrow shows a woman with a backpack, then a closer view moments later via zoom lens:
Before beginning my descent into the gorge, I took a few more photographs from the observation platform:
The walk down to the base of the falls was the most difficult stretch of trail I’d encountered at this park, with plenty of opportunities to trip or twist an ankle. Be careful! Here are a few examples, and also a couple waterfall photographs:
I’ll no doubt be adding more random photographs from my hike at Fall Creek Falls State Park to my gallery at Pixels, over time. In the meantime, stop by for a visit to see some great prints suitable for your home or office!
Enjoy the great outdoors!

Though I wish that Cane Creek had had more water during my visit to the Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Tennessee, the shallow waterline allowed me an opportunity to traverse into areas which I would otherwise not have been able to explore. With one last look towards the top edge of Cane Creek Falls, I turned to proceed onward.
Facing upstream, now, I enjoyed views which included stacked layers of sandstone outcroppings and high walls, as well as stepping stones scattered across the creek:
Turning the corner, I could see Cane Creek Cascades in the distance, as well as a person walking along the cable suspension-bridge, crossing the creek:
Here are some more photographs of Cane Creek Cascades –
After a pleasant stay, the time had come to continue my adventure hiking Fall Creek Falls State Park. The trail was across the creek, so I walked along the cable suspension-bridge …
