If you ever find yourself in Overton County, Tennessee, or in nearby Cookeville, Tennessee, plan to take a day and see some of Tennessee’s best waterfalls while there. This small beauty near the larger Waterloo Falls is easy to miss.
Starting from the same parking lot as Waterloo Falls, head east on the dirt road, which follows Spring Creek. During the spring and summer this area fills with butterflies, hummingbirds, and many other beautiful creatures. Closer to the upper falls the water crashes audibly in the distance. While this waterfall is only 5 feet in height, its beauty and the backdrop make it all worthwhile. Wade in the water to cool off or sit back and have a picnic and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Make sure to see the lower Waterloo Falls on the way out.
A big swimming area awaits at the base of the falls.
