The hike down to the base of the falls is pretty steep- but it's worth it! Plus swimming is a great way to take a break and you can dry off on the hike back up.

I suggest going to the Cascade Falls for a swim, they have tons of little jumps and a slide or two (rock slide that is)... it's just upstream and an easy hike from the nature center/parking lot (with stairs and only one tricky part towards the bottom) you can also hike to the top of Falls Creek Falls from the Cascades.

Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of Tennessee’s largest and most visited state parks. Located just two hours from Nashville in Spencer, Tennessee, the namesake waterfall here is one of the most impressive in the state.

At 256 feet, Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States.

The waterfall is perfect for a family adventure, because it can be seen from the base and the top — with a variety of short or long hike choices, so you can choose what works best for your crew. The trail to the top of Fall Creek Falls is a moderate hike, that’s roughly 2.4 miles.

You’ll also find a nature center here that the kids will love, as well as plenty of parking. Located just behind the nature center is the Cane Creek Cascades. Although not a plunging waterfall, it is still impressive and easy to visit.

We think Fall Creek Falls is one of the best waterfalls in Tennessee to visit!
