Several trails, mainly easy, that lead to waterfalls and creeks. Interesting variety of forests, and perfect spots for kids to play in the water. I highly recommend exploring this gem of a place.

In the Tullahoma area, this is a nice easy hike, with some beautiful waterfalls. Easy to do in just a couple hours.
