Unnamed Falls #2, Burgess Falls SP, Tennessee

A smaller waterfall in Burgess Falls State Park, December 2009

In Burgess Falls State Park, there are a number of smaller waterfalls to be found. They are all waterfalls that flow into the Falling Water River. The second of these unnamed falls is one of the more beautiful ones. It’s actually taller than one might expect, and it may actually continue on underneath the trail. I’m guessing the waterfall is likely to be flowing only in times of higher rainfall. I could imagine it drying up when there isn’t as much rain. I visited the falls in late December, though I don’t know if there was much rain before that.


  1. From I-40 near Cookeville, take the exit for TN-135 and head south on TN-135.
  2. Follow TN-135 for a ways, until you see the sign indicating the turn for Burgess Falls. From there, its a short distance to the parking lot for the falls.
  3. The signs make the hike very simple to follow.

Accessibility: 9/10 (easy)
Height: 30′
Length of Hike: 1.6 miles round-trip (to see all falls)
