Hidden beyond the city life in Nashville lies lots of magical nature in the trees. Now that the seasons are finally shifting, it's time to hop back into discovering the hikes and waterfalls scattered through the South. This hidden waterfall near Tennessee is so tropical that you may find yourself feeling like you're on a trip to Hawaii.
Falling Water Falls is in Pelsor, Arkansas near the Boston Mountains and Arkansas Ozarks. The waterfall can be found exactly 2.3 miles into the Falling Water Scenic Drive.
The fresh creek water, which pours into Falling Water Gorge and past massive mossy boulders, is crystal clear with hues of icy blue and green.
It is not super common to come across these vibrant waters in the contingent U.S., especially in the South. This lagoon-esque pool is what some may compare to swimming holes in Oahu, Hawaii.
You can achieve the entire look and feel of a waterfall adventure thousands of miles away without leaving your own backyard.
Another plus is that you don't have to endure a lengthy, strenuous hike to reach your destination.
The sight of the dreamy water may lead you to believe you've got to really sweat it out to bear the fruits, but it's a quick hike that's considerate good for all skill levels.
For those who actually know of this secret spot, the area is popular for outdoor, water-filled adventure.
Plus the drive is only four hours from Memphis, Tennessee so its the perfect roadtrip too.
Some visitors jump off the cliff or rope swing into the water, but it's advised that you partake in such activities at your own risk, as they could be dangerous.
The falls are fully accessible to the public and furry friends are allowed. Take note that the parking area near the trails is small (three vehicles max), so be prepared to possibly park somewhere nearby and walk.*
