Burgess Falls State Park, Tennessee


A few photos from an early-Spring 2017 day trip to Burgess Falls State Park, about an hour from Nashville, Tennessee. One of my favorite thing about living in Nashville for two years was the state park system. Tennessee has 56 state parks filled with gorgeous nature, waterfalls, caves, cliffs, and other amazing natural and man made features (some ancient). I went to Burgess Falls a few time while living in Nashville. As you walk along the trail through the woods, you can stop at three waterfalls of increasing size. It’s a wonderful day trip from Nashville, and if you go I highly recommend stopping at the Cafe Between the Parks (8272 Burgess Falls Rd, Baxter, TN 38544), a cozy family-run shop and lunch place between Burgess Falls and Cummins Falls (the latter is an amazing place to go swimming in the summer, FYI). burgessfalls2burgessfalls7
