Where is Nashville?

Frozen in time are Upper Nashville Lewis River Falls from the highest viewpoint.

Follow Nashville River Trail 31 N near the edge of the bluff and stay to the right, along the river with more views of the waterfall. Other paths join from the campground on the left near another outhouse as you ascend the hill gently E of the campground and parallel closer to FR-90 for a bit.

Then head downhill past huge Douglas firs and cross one creek and a small bridge to a larger footbridge with a thin little waterfall just below it at 1 mi from the campground. Ignore other trails coming down from FR-90 and from Middle Falls TH for now. Copper Creek Falls (26-ft plunge) is on the Middle Falls loop, a possible variation on the return to add almost a mile mostly for exercise. You may also be rerouted toward Middle Falls TH on the up and down loop back to Trail 31 in case of slides lower on Copper Creek.

For an interesting waterfall excursion with very little effort, try Curly Creek Falls from milepost 20V off FR-90 onto FR-9039 for exactly 1 mi W to signed parking on the left. Walk left of the vault toilet, turning right at the immediate fork 100 ft to the log pole fenced viewing area of the splendid 86ft falls in two drops. Then continue briefly to another viewing area and, bonus, this one for the narrower Miller Creek Falls plunging 66 ft into a pool (less than 5 mi and 20 minutes round-trip; flat, wide path).
