Burgess Falls State Park
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.
