My boyfriend, Christian, and I visited Cummins Falls for the first time ever the other day and we had the absolute most perfect day! We drove up to Cummins Falls (Located in Cookeville) from Lebanon, which is a little over an hour away, and we had such a great time. We packed a lunch and had a picnic when we got there, then we hiked to the top of the water fall where we sat on the rocks and let our feet soak in the cool, rushing water. It felt so amazing to have our feet in the water on such a hot day.
Christian and I spent our time at the top on the water fall, but if you go to the bottom, there is a swimming hole and you can enjoy sitting under the water fall and swim around under the hot Tennessee sun.
I do not recommend trying to swim here if you are not a strong swimmer. There have been many injuries and even a few deaths here, so it is important to be smart and know your limitations. Be smart and be safe!
After just one visit here, I have fallen madly in love with this park and plan to return soon! I think everyone should put “visit Cummins Falls” on their bucket list because it is amazing.
I hope you enjoy the park! Be safe and God Bless!!
