Spring Creek Scenic River

Spring Creek is located along the Upper Cumberland Plateau near Cookeville. Like Blackburn Fork River it is a tributary of the Roaring River with no public canoe/kayak access points. Spring Creek Gorge and Waterloo Falls are the most significant geological features of the scenic river. Visitors can hike a ½ mile unimproved trail into the gorge from a pull off on Hwy 136 to view the cascading waterfall.
