Ozone Falls Waterfall Engagement Photos

With more than 500 waterfalls in the state of Tennessee, we are surrounded by some of nature’s most beautiful creations! One area of the state we don’t travel to very often is middle Tennessee. We spend lots of time in the Great Smoky Mountains to the east, by rarely do we drive west to the Cumberland Plateau.

A few weeks ago, we decided to visit 3 middle Tennessee waterfalls in 1 day – Ozone Falls, Lost Creek Falls & Cave, and Rock Island State Park. Little did we know that we were in for an epic display of water, rock, and caves!

Today, we’re sharing with you the beautiful Ozone Falls waterfall. Plunging more than 110 feet, this waterfall is located in Rockwood, Tennessee, just off Interstate 40 near Crossville. The 0.3-mile trail begins on the side of the road and quickly descends to the falls. Carefully climbing down to the base was a technical achievement, and climbing back up was more like climbing up a ladder, hands and feet all working together! Laura and Jesse were pros at climbing and easily made it down to the waterfall in minutes! Every step was worth it, though. When we arrived at the base, the cool mist floated around us and we could have explored the rocks and amphitheater style waterfall for hours!

Ozone Falls

Ozone Falls is a 43-acre natural area in Cumberland County and is one of Tennessee’s most heavily-visited state natural areas because of its close proximity to Interstate 40. Ozone Falls plunges 110 feet into a pool below, and then disappears and re-emerges downstream as Fall Creek. The stream contains many huge boulders, some the size of small houses. Legend has it that the area was named “Ozone” because of the “stimulating quality of the air” created by the mist that is generated after the long plunge of water.
