Another one of MiddleTennessee's most beautiful locations. This state park has all the amenities...picnic areas, boating, swimming areas, views, large rock outcroppings and cliffs and hiking trails. In my personal opinion it's one of the most gorgeous places in TN.

One of the most gorgeous waterfalls in the state, Burgess has easy access via a short trail from the parking lot. There are two trails, actually. One follows along the river with super views and the other is more of a short cut back to the parking lot. ...not as pretty but quicker after the hike along the river. The fall itself is wide and there is a stairway leading down the side of the falls for better viewing and photo ops.
