Located approximately 35 miles, just under an hours drive from Cozy Cabins & Cottages, on the Falling Water River between Sparta and Cookeville Tennessee. Burgess Falls State Park is just 10 miles north of Sparta by following Highway 111, exit at Old Kentucky Road and follow the state signs.
Burgess Falls State Park & Natural Area is a wonderland of beauty with its sheer bluffs, waterfalls, narrow ridges, rolling water and abundant mixed forest.
A scenic riverside trail will lead you along several Cascades across a 80?-120? width of the limestone benches in the Falling Water River. Following the path you will enjoy views of the 47? Little Falls, the 70? Middle Falls and on to a point overlooking the beauty and splendor of nature that has come to be known as Burgess Falls, a 130? waterfall located in a large gorge on the Falling Water River. A view of Burgess Falls is easily reached by a 3/4 mile trail to the overlook and for the young at heart you can climb down into the gorge to view the falls from the pool below.
