Cumberland Falls

Scenic Overlook


Prints available. Known as the “Niagara of The South”, Cumberland Falls stands 60-feet tall by 125-feet wide, and creates a thunderous echo throughout the gorge, as it accommodates the Cumberland River. This particular shot was taken from an elevated trail across the river, when I was hiking to Eagle Falls.

Return To Benton Falls

Located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, inside the Cherokee National Forest, the Chilhowee Recreation Area is home to Benton Falls.

Driving 7 miles up the mountain along Oswald Road, several scenic overlooks provide excellent morning views –

It’s $3 parking for a day pass, where visitors can enjoy bicycling, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking and water activities. And, there are picnic tables, drinking water and toilets available. Dogs allowed.

From the trailhead, hikers can enjoy views of the scenic 7-acre Lake McCamy, including a quiet beach and clean water for swimming.

Continuing to Benton Falls, it’s a 3 mile out and back hike along a heavily trafficked trail of mostly hard-pack sand, with some rocks.
