Burgess Falls State Park
AMAZING Waterfall!! Worth the trip up the lake to view; you can usually drive very close to it and then walk the rest. Advise taking water shoes if you have them. Don't forget your camera!!
An area named Window Cliffs is also nearby. it is a day use park and has a wonderful 2.7 mile hike with 18 creek crossings. Note: This park is subject to close when flooding.
The entrance to Burgess Falls State Park is located just off Tennessee State Route 135 roughly halfway between Cookeville and Sparta - less than an hours drive from Piney Creek Cabins. The park is open year-round, but is closed on days of high precipitation due to the Falling Water River's volatility.
