Savage Falls

Located in the South Cumberland State Park of Tennessee, near Palmer, Savage Creek flows over cascades and down the picturesque 30-foot Savage Falls.

Welcome To The Savage Gulf State Natural Area

With nearly 16,000-acres on the western edge of the Cumberland Plateau, park visitors can discover over 50 miles of wilderness trails. The hike to Savage Falls, however, is only 3.6 miles out and back along well kept trails of mostly hard packed soil. There are some rocks, and a substantial amount of roots – hikers should expect sore feet the next day! Also, there are two suspension bridges over waterways, each with a two-person limit. Follow the white blaze markers.

There is a Ranger Station with clean restrooms, running water, recycling and trash bins. Several benches are also located near an information bulletin board, and a secured voluntary donations box is available for contributions. Lastly, there is a sign-in clipboard for hikers to log in/out times.

The trail follows the flow of Savage Creek, so hikers will first encounter a broad set of cascades above the falls. Next, a view from the top of the falls can be enjoyed while standing on a large, flat rock. Lastly, a wooden stairway leads to a plunge pool at the base of Savage Falls, where many rocks can serve as seating for hikers to enjoy the view and a rest. There is also a second waterfall tucked away behind several large boulders, only slightly downstream. In order to get a good view, you’ll need to climb down a short hillside and traverse across several slippery rocks – if you can manage to do so carefully, the view is worth it!

Laurel Falls At Savage Gulf

Location: in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area of the South Cumberland State Park, near Coalmont, Tennessee.

Laurel Falls stands 25-feet tall and is a short hike along a trail which begins behind the Stone Door Ranger Station…

This is a scenic hike suitable for all ages, with a small observation platform and easy access to the top of the falls. I couldn’t find an obvious path to the base of the falls, however, and there aren’t any safety rails – so, children and pets should be monitored closely.

Parking is close with handicap spaces available. There is a restroom and information billboard, also. If interested in a somewhat longer hike, you might consider an adjoining trailhead to The Stone Door.
