Check Out Breathtaking Waterfalls
Burgess Falls State Natural Area, Sparta
The park’s three rumbling, tumbling waterfalls about 12 miles south of Cookeville are among the most scenic (and accessible) in Tennessee.
Don’t miss: The Native Butterfly Garden, near the park’s upper parking lot. Filled with native wildflowers used to attract nearly 30 species of butterflies, the garden is an ideal spot for resting up before heading home.
