Description

Runners can enjoy viewing this series of sink holes into which the streams and creeks disappear, giving rise to the name, Sinking Waters. A boardwalk through the marsh provides views of several sink holes. The trail is part of the Tennessee State Park system. I've lived in the area for 30+ years, and never knew this spot existed. My eight children (aged 14 to 6 months) all commented about how much they enjoyed this little trail - especially the boardwalk and sink holes.

Short Walk: By the most direct route from Cedar Branch Road, it is 0.7 miles from the parking lot to the boardwalk.
