Kathleen L. on dupont lodge trail 4 and 6
4 is a nice easy trail. The steps might be a problem for some making it slightly moderate. The attached map does not include trail 4, only trail 6 so be aware.
Trail 6 is a fairly quick walk to the falls. Again, steps may be a problem for some.
We saw several deer on trail 4 at dusk. They must be very use to people. We were able to get some pretty close video.
Absolutely beautiful trail! We had a group of 4 adults, a 9mo old in a backpack carrier, and a dog. The trail definitely has some inclines and was not a "walk in the park", but was definitely worth the effort! We went early on a Sunday and were the only ones on the trail, but passed quite a few people on our way back.
Rebekah C. on Cumberland Falls Number Two Trail
This trail is more of a moderate plus. There are lots of elevation changes 742 ft to 1381 feet. Lots of up the hill and down the hill. Very rocky and slippery when wet. Hiking poles are a necessity when hiking in wet conditions. You need to be in good shape to do this trail. Do the trail counter clockwise. The first half of the trail is all woods and not much scenery. the second part parallels the river and comes up from down river of the falls. Bring plenty of water!
Leshay H. on Dog Slaughter Falls Trail
This hike is absolutely gorgeous! It took me forever to get my son and nephew out of the water once we found the falls, but they spent as much time playing in the creek on the hike. The entire trail is gorgeous, but use caution for steep dropoffs in some places, particularly if you take children. Probably one of my favorite short and ready hikes of all time (we took the short trail).
