  • My best friends soul mate waterfall is here! I live the trails and the flowers in the spring. Find your park!
  • As a geologist, this is a great place to observe the Geology of middle Tennessee and to look for fossils. I found some nice crinoid specimens on the point bars at the end of the stream from Machine Falls. I didn't take anything due to the abundance of these fossils throughout this part of Tennessee, but still it's nice to show others in the park. The hiking is quite pleasant either by yourself or with a group. Hiking to the falls can take about 15-20 min
  • Stunning! If you haven't been here you need to visit. It's worth getting a little wet and filling a bit of your adventure cup.
  • Easily my favorite waterfall hike. It's challenging enough to give you some perspective of how unfit you are but the hike itself is not overly long.
  • Awesome place for a good hike and pretty scenery. I definitely recommend viewing Machine Falls from the base - it is incredibly gorgeous.
