No matter the time of year, you need to get outside and explore all that Tennessee has to offer. Finding a place to start could be the most difficult part, but we've found one spot that has all you could ever want and more. This trail in Tennessee is super short, has a waterfall and crystal clear water you'll want to jump right into. 

Foster Falls is located about 30 minutes outside of Chattanooga and is a favorite of the locals that reside around the area. The best part about this hike is that it's only a 0.6-mile round trip. This is one of the easiest waterfalls to get to and one of the most beautiful ones; you don't even have to break a sweat.

Advanced and beginner hikers alike can enjoy this trail because the payoff is incredible. You'll get an up-close view of the ginormous waterfall and even cross a swinging bridge while you're there. It might not be a long adventure, but it sure will be one to remember. 

Instead of walking through mud and an unpaved forest, you'll be hiking across a wooden boardwalk until you make it to the falls. This makes the hike even better than it already is because you don't even have to worry about getting your shoes dirty. 

You'll eventually reach an observation deck that will give you a first look at the massive falls before you even get to it. You might think this view is spectacular, but just wait until you descend into the valley. 

The most difficult part of this entire trail will probably be climbing down and back up the rock stairs that lead you to the valley and bottom of Foster Falls.

You'll cross Fiery Gizzard Creek by stumbling across the suspension bridge that hangs over it. You'll be mesmerized by the 80-foot waterfall that plunges into a huge pool of water. 

Once you make it to the bottom of the falls, you'll be able to hop in and cool down. This is a pretty popular spot in the summer, so make sure you get there early so you'll be one of the first ones in.
