One of the easier waterfalls at Fall Creek State park in Tennessee to access. The beauty of nature in unspoiled and natural surroundings.

You have to be careful climbing down the cable to get to the base of the upper falls but it is a magnificent plunge fall and made the muddy cool winter day a thrilling experience. The lower falls is smaller but has a nice angle...More
