Foster Falls - as seen from above

Foster Falls - as seen from above.

This is Foster Falls as seen from the observation deck, which is only a few hundred feet from the parking lot. Foster Falls is located on Highway 41 between Tracy City and Jasper in Marion County.

Foster Falls is under the oversight of Tennessee State Parks as a part of the South Cumberland State Park. Little Gizzard Creek plunges about 60 feet into Robinson Cove below where it is surrounded by 120-foot sandstone cliffs. This view is one of the easiest accessible waterfall views in the state from this deck and there is a trail that allows you to reach the bottom near a swimming area and another trail that provides additional ridgetop vistas. This area also provided for one of the best rock climbing routes in the state.
