Waterfall · Nature / Park
Ozone Falls is a waterfall located in Cumberland County, Tennessee in the Ozone Falls State Natural Area and Cumberland Trail State Park. Ozone Falls is situated along Fall Creek, which drains a short section of the Cumberland Plateau between the Crab Orchard Mountains to the west and Walden Ridge to the east. The creek flows down from its source high in the Crab Orchard Mountains for a mile or so before steadying briefly as it enters the community of Ozone. Fall Creek enters the state natural area just after it passes under U.S. Route 70, which runs perpendicular to it. The creek spills over Ozone Falls a few hundred meters south of US-70. The trailhead is located along US-70.

  • Ozone Falls is a great place to picnic and go for a romantic day. I've been there many times with my guy. There's an upper and a lower and across the street is a cool railroad truss you can climb. We....  more »
  • Do not listen to your GPS if it tries to tell you to turn up a dead end road that's on an incline. The parking is actually. 25 miles's why not to take that road. 1.5 lanes, dead end and....  more »
  • Ozone Falls is a lovely area to spend a few hours clambering over rocks and enjoying the spray coming from the waterfall. There's a small parking area on the left side of the road with more parking on the right side. The top of the falls is a short, easy walk from the road. You can wade in the small stream, but know the water is chilly. The path to the bottom of the falls is steep, with lots of large rocks and tree roots. Wear sturdy shoes. There's a cool breeze coming from the waterfall that makes the climb pleasant. The cliffs around the waterfall are eroded away so that you can walk behind it. It would be easy to spend a few hours exploring and climbing over rocks. Know that there are no facilities here. PLEASE carry your trash back out. This is a beautiful spot that doesn't need any human enhancement. 😁
  • Brilliant. Swimming hole is big, round and deep. Waterfall is tall and majestic. The surrounding rock, waterfall, and swimming hole come together to form a beautiful, picturesque scene. Just off the side of the ride. Hike down is quick and steep. Not too crowded.
