Come On, Cummins Falls!

Only about 1.5 hours outside of Nashville - Cummins Falls is the perfect day trip!


390 Cummins Falls Lane

Cookeville, TN 38501

WARNING: You'll need to purchase a Gorge access permit before you go.

They make you watch a 5 minute training video as hiking down to the falls is pretty treacherous. It's about 1.5 miles to HIKE to the base of the falls.

Recommended Packing List:

  • Water shoes or old tennis shoes - I'm serious, I watched people do this in flip flops and they were having the worst time. The rocks are sharp and slippery!

  • Water Bottle

  • Snacks

  • Towel (maybe leave in the car)

  • Sunscreen

  • Bug Spray would've been amazing

They don't allow coolers or alcohol.

Have fun and share you pics!
