Stillhouse Hollow Falls

State Natural Area

Stillhouse Hollow Falls is a 75-foot high waterfall in the center of a 90.35 acre-tract, located in Maury County, near Mt. Pleasant and near the juncture where the counties of Lewis, Lawrence, Giles and Maury meet. Stillhouse Hollow is located on an unnamed tributary stream of Big Bigby Creek, one of two primary streams that feed the Duck River. The short, one-mile hike leading to the falls is rich with wildflowers in the spring: a perfect day-trip to view Yellow Trout Lily, Spring Beauty, Cut-Leaf Toothworth and many more.

Our Conservation Story
The Swan Conservation Trust approched TennGreen for assistance in protecting this waterfall and its surrounding lands to protect the "Maury State Forest" from fragementation and development. With the leadership and generousity of many, notably Elizabeth Queener, TennGreen was able to purchase the land through our Emergency Land Fund and fundraise to refill those coffers. TennGreen then transfered the land to the TDEC's State Natural Areas division.
