Return To Burgess Falls

On the Falling Water River, Burgess Falls State Park is centrally located between Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee, with four scenic waterfalls cascading down over 250-feet.

An easy hike, the trail is only 1.5 miles out and back, and there’s an observation platform for viewing Lower Falls. Ample parking, restrooms, drinking fountain & convenient filling station for water bottles are available. It’s a popular tourist attraction, and free, thus visitors are advised to arrive early.

There’s also another parking area upstream, located next to an old dam. Though in a state of disrepair with no trespassing signs posted, it’s nevertheless possible to stay clear and enjoy remote views.

Burgess Falls State Park

Located on the Falling Water River in Tennessee, Burgess Falls State Park is noted for its natural beauty and four waterfalls that cascade down from over 250 feet in elevation. A moderately strenuous 1.5-mile (round trip) trail along the edge of the gorge provides hikers with ample viewing opportunities, though, during my visit, one of the observation platforms was closed for repairs, as was a stairway leading to the base of Lower Falls. That said, it was nevertheless a very nice hike filled with compelling landscape scenery – highly recommended! And, a drinking fountain and restrooms are available, as is a convenient filling station for water bottles.
