Rushing water roars over Great Falls on the Caney Fork River at Rock Island State Park in Tennessee, another park that we visited on our Tennessee Waterfalls trip. The horseshoe-shaped Great Falls was a fascinating sight, as the rushing water appeared to be quite turbulent, creating a loud roar as it fell. The falls were so wide that I could not fit them into one photo, so here is another view:

Looking out over the waterfall down below at Cummins Falls State Park in Tennessee during our Tennessee Waterfalls trip. It is difficult to judge the height of these waterfalls, but this one is 75 feet tall, which to me is a pretty good size, because, as I have mentioned before, we don’t have waterfalls of any size near where we live. You can at times access the base of the falls.

Water rushes over the tallest waterfall at Burgess Falls State Park in Tennessee, as seen during our Tennessee Waterfalls trip. Burgess Falls was the first of four Tennessee State Parks that we visited on our Waterfalls trip, and it was worth the visit. We walked along the trail that runs alongside the appropriately-named Falling Water River. Could there be a better name for a river with waterfalls? I can’t think of one.

Water cascades over the falls of Fall Creek Falls past trees and large rock formations at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee.1 Fall Creek Falls is a waterfall at the center of Fall Creek Falls State Park, which also features other waterfalls as well. The main waterfall (the namesake falls that you can see in the photo above), is 256 feet tall, making it the largest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.
