Dress:

Definitely bring your swim suits.  it's a bit of a hike to the falls so make sure you have good walking shoes that you don't mind getting wet.  (they will get wet)

Plan:

we'll do the short hike to the falls and try and swim. bring your bathing suit.

Drink/Food:

Make sure you bring lots of water.  it'll be hot.  And a lunch would be great too.  just make sure it's easy to carry.

If you arrive later:

there's two ways to get to the falls.  the safer way if to take the trail to down river and hike up the river to the falls.

    Is the park/hike pet friendly?

      I've seen lots of dogs on the last couple times I've went... But I wouldn't recommend it if your pet is old or not as fond of the water. I'm actually probably going to be bringing a puppy myself, so you'll have someone else to take the long route with haha!

      I wouldn't recommend it.

    • Steven

      Water shoes are best if you have them

      I wore Crocs the last two times, and it worked out pretty well.

    Sorry, I have to work the microchip clinic at the Nashville Humane Association on the 17th. If you aren't going to the event and have a pet, come get it microchipped for $25. It's one of the best decisions a pet owner can make
