Independence Day, A.M- the Secret is Out

Cummins Falls I love you!!! We (myself and my intrepid friends Liz and Rick) made the trek about hour and a half east of Nashville on the 4th of July morning for a little Waterfalling.

Cummins Falls is on private property, and is kind of a hidden gem! As is it not a state park, there are no signs or trail markers of any kind. Actually finding our way to the swimming hole at the bottom was half the fun!

Doesn't this look like a blast? It is! What a gorgeous spot to spend a sunny summer day. The water is cold, but not ice cold- perfect for swimming. There are several rocks to jump off, parts of the cascades you can climb behind, and stairstepped ledges at the base of the falls that you can walk or sit on. The ledges are slippery so be careful if you go, and I highly recommend that you do!
