The 110-foot falls is easily accessed just off of Interstate 40 and was featured in the 1994 live-action version of The Jungle Book.

By Kelly Thomas
Located in a 43-acre natural area in Cumberland County, Ozone Falls plunges 110 feet into a blue rock-strewn pool. A rock house "amphitheater" can be seen behind the falls that was created by wind, water, freeze/thaw and erosion. Due to its breathtaking beauty and quick access, Ozone Falls was selected for filming scenes for the 1994 movie, "The Jungle Book."

Upon arrival at the falls, you'll start at the bluff overlooking the drop into the pool and follow a rugged 0.75-mile one-way trail that descends into the gorge and passes a small rock house dubbed "Gamblers Den." The trail then follows Fall Creek to the confluence with Renfro Creek, and hikers must then backtrack to return to the trailhead. Interesting fact—it is believed that the falls got the name due to the "stimulating quality of the air" created by the mist generated by the long plunge into the water.
