Hike Less Than A Mile To This Spectacular Waterfall Swimming Hole In Tennessee
Tennessee in the summer can get hot. We mean, your ice cream melts before you eat it, you’re sweating the moment you walk out of the house, and your car seats are fire hot. The humidity is just par for the course here in the Volunteer State and locals have found out some pretty neat ways to stay cool. One of them is swimming beneath the roaring rush of Cummins Falls, a famed waterfall located in Cookeville. The pool of clear, beautiful water comes at a price, though: you have to hike to get to it. Learn more about it below, and pack snacks! This is one view that you’ll want to enjoy as long as possible.
