Cummins Falls State Park is home to Cummins Fall and gorge. Our visit was in September 2020. It was a short stop as we chose to only walk to the overlook which was an easy short trail. The fall is spectacular and cascades down 75ft.
We ran into several groups who intended to hike the gorge. The 3 mile trail to the base is strenuous and requires a permit. It involves climbing rocks and crossing slippery surfaces and/or wading through water. That did not seem to be a deterrent as we saw quite a few folks frolicking in the water at the base of the waterfall. It did look like great fun. May be next trip. Visit the park’s web site prior to your trip to register if this is your intent.
