Burgess Falls - Main Waterfall

This is the main waterfalls at Burgess Falls State Natural Area. The Falling Water River falls about 130' where the water reaches Center Hill Lake.

This first picture is taken from the overlook deck. The overlook can either be reached by a river side trail, or by walking down a gravel access road. Children should be closely supervised at all times because of natural cliff faces.

The base of the falls can be reached by a steep trail and decent down a steel stair system. This should not be attempted by children under about 12 years old. Even then ONLY under close adult supervision. Numerous accidents have happened on the slippery rocks and stairs.
This next picture give you a little better perspective of the waterfalls height. The portion of waterfalls visible in the background below, is of course the furthest left part of the falls seen above.
