These cascades are found at Twin Falls – part of the Rock Island State Park – on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. I happen to think that an empty wall in your home or office may be well-served via the acquisition & placement of a framed print featuring this lovely photograph. Just a thought. Visit my gallery for more.
Flowing into a meandering Caney Fork River below, water from Twin Falls originates from the Collins River, which, subsequent to be dammed, seeps through steep limestone embankments. The result is a series of beautiful waterfalls and cascades along the cliffs. When visiting, you’ll also be able to see several additional small waterfalls tucked away behind foliage along the rock face.
Whether you enjoy the scenery of Twin Falls from your car in the parking lot, or prefer an easy walk along a trail parallel to the river, beauty abounds at this popular tourist destination. Also, there is trail access to the expansive Caney Fork Gorge, featuring more waterfalls and scenic, layered rock walls. More on that another time…
If you enjoy waterfalls, you’ll be pleased with your purchase from my gallery at Fine Art America. My photography is available on several print types, including: framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, wood, acrylic and tapestries.

Everyone has experienced turbulent situations where it isn’t necessarily easy to maintain composure, to remain calm. That’s not the case here, though: these stacked stones retain balance, despite chaos all around.
Photographs taken at Twin Falls in Rock Island State Park, Tennessee.
I was hiking along rocks near the water at Twin Falls, in Tennessee, when I spotted this Egret in the distance. Or, perhaps I should say – it spotted me!
These birds, like the Heron, are good fliers, but not so quick to become airborne. As such, they pay close attention to their surroundings, monitoring closely for any incursions within their space which might necessitate flight.
Not wanting to create a disturbance by walking too close, I turned to ascend a 50′ stairway leading away to the parking area. At the top, I saw that the Egret continued to assess my albeit diminished proximity. Even after walking a short distance, and then returning, I remained under the watchful eye of the Egret!
Note: these photographs were taken using a zoom lens, at a distance farther than it appears.
I recently had the opportunity to revisit Twin Falls, at Rock Island State Park in Tennessee, as my previous outing – which also included both Burgess Falls State Park and Rock Island State Park – had exhausted me beyond my capacity to fully appreciate the 80′ waterfalls.
The water source of Twin Falls is the Collins River, which, after merging with the Caney Fork River, is dammed. As a result, the river expanded with greater pressure, subsequently causing water to seep through limestone embankments; hence, the waterfalls emerge through the cliff, rather than over the edge.
Here are some photographs I took –
Following recent rains, the volume of water flowing was significant. If you’re able, I’d recommend hiking down along the rocks in front of Twin Falls to sit and enjoy the scenery. Despite wind and spray generated by falling water, and though the sound may be loud, the views are stunning!
Enjoy this scenery in your home of office year-round by selecting a print from my online shop at Pixels! Choose the following print types: framed, canvas, art, metal, wood or acrylic.
Getting to Twin Falls from the parking area at Caney Fork Gorge is a four mile drive, still within the Rock Island State Park of Tennessee. These falls are not natural – rather, a byproduct of damming the Caney Fork River, and a power house. Interestingly, the water found its way through the limestone; hence, these 80′ waterfalls pour out of the gorge walls, rather than over the edge some 40′ higher.

Rock Island State Park is a 883-acre park located on the headwaters of Center Hill Lake at the confluence of the Caney Fork, Collins and Rocky Rivers – in Tennessee. The rugged beauty of the park includes the Caney Fork Gorge below Great Falls Dam. Scenic overlooks – see header image – provide some of the most beautiful views along the Eastern Highland Rim.
While the park contains several different areas of interest, this was my second park-visit in one day – see Burgess Falls State Park. As such, most of my photography originates primarily from within the Caney Fork Gorge.
