The falls are beautiful. Be sure to wear good walking/climbing shoes. It is slippery going over the rocks to get down to the falls. It is a peacefully unexpected oasis in the middle of Manchester.

A super short walk with my 7 & 10 year old. The waterfall is beautiful and my kids enjoyed playing in the water. I can’t wait to go back.

You can almost drive right up to this waterfall. Easy access - great waterfall year round. You park across from the church and the landowners are nice enough to provide a trail down to the falls.

Rutledge Falls is very beautiful. I attend the church across the street which is amazing itself. The waterfall is something you don't see everyday especially in the small town it is in. It goes way back on the trails, and is very pretty. The rocks...More

What a wonderful reprise from the heat. My husband and I came to the falls after the Moon Pie Fest in Bell Buckle. You can feel a 10-15 degree drop just scaling down the rocks to the stream! Loved it!

The falls are actually on private land but the owners allow people to visit (there are signs posted saying this). Therefore, there are no set hours but it would be dangerous to visit the falls in the dark as the main trail... More

I didn't see anyone fishing the Saturday afternoon we were there. They do have a huge lake close to the Air Force base there. All water activities were there.
