Ozone Falls State Natural Area

Ozone Falls is a breathtaking 110-foot waterfall on the Cumberland Plateau near the village of Ozone in Cumberland County. The gorge of the falls features beautiful stands of hemlock, yellow birch, basswood, and magnolia trees. Recognized for many years as a scenic landmark along U.S. Highway 70, a portion of the original Memphis-to-Bristol Highway, the site was designated a fourteen-acre state natural area in the early 1970s and expanded significantly by twenty-eight acres in 1996. Plans for new hiking trails, recreational facilities, and an additional route to the rear of the falls now are under development.
