In support of Governor Lee’s Executive Order 23, we have made the difficult decision to close Tennessee State Parks. This closure is effective April 4, 2020 and running through April 14, 2020 Visit our Keeping Visitors Healthy page for more info.
Gorge Water Levels Ongoing Alert: Changing water levels in the gorge can result in the sudden closure of the trail access to the base of the waterfall. Rain can drastically impact the volume of water coming over Cummins Falls, making the path through the gorge dangerous for visitors. We encourage everyone to check the weather forecast in the days leading up to a visit to the park. Even if it isn't raining at the park, rain upstream can cause water levels to rise in a matter of minutes. Please remain aware of your surroundings during your visit and exit the base of the falls if you notice the water volume increasing.
In the interest of public health, Tennessee State Parks are cancelling all park-hosted events from March 16 to April 15, 2020. Parks remain open to visitors at this time. For more information about event cancellations and our efforts to protect visitors and staff, please visit our Keeping Visitors Healthy page.
