We have done a lot of the trails around Cumberland Falls, this particular route is a little confusing. It switches trail numbers a lot. It is beautiful and enjoyed going up to the fire tower, hadn't been there in many years. We didn't go to Dog Slaughter because the lack of rain means Dog Slaughter Falls wouldn't have had any water falling. Cumberland Falls is always beautiful and one of my all time favorite spots.

biggest water fall I've ever seen. breathtaking! trail can be slick so wear good boots

It was an incredible view! Actually saw three waterfalls on this trail! Trail head sign rated trail as strenuous, also has trail at 2.5 miles and no pets allowed. There are some very narrow pathways which is probably the reason bringing a dog isn't such a great idea. Lots of steps but the views are exquisite!!! Can't wait to go again!

Very nice trail to some beautiful falls. Have been there a few times. Have never seen the moon bow.

LOVED IT!!! Growing up in Colorado this reminds me of some of the hiking out there. Great views and challenging terrains. I hiked it with the baby on my back an 8, 5, & 3 year olds and they all hiked there and back only carrying the 3 year old back up the stairway. I will come back here to hike this beautiful area again!!!

Easy hike with a great view!

Its worth continuing just five more minutes west past the falls to reach the Cumberland River.

Gorgeous overlooks, beautiful views from the rocks, and difficult enough to get a workout in. This is a very well maintained trail, and well worth the climbs. I will do it again if back in the area.

Beautiful trail with amazing views, but VERY dangerous for small children or anyone who may not be in the greatest health. There is significant danger due to the trail being along the cliff-line. Our last visit was during winter when the water and Eagle Falls was frozen. The trail was covered in ice and VERY slick. Many times we nearly died, but totally worth it. The area just prior to the falls requires much climbing over rocks and tree debris. Best to go in the winter if snakes are a fear. Were there better protection from falling I'd rate as 5 stars. Also less rated due to lack of parking. Sometimes there is no spot for hours and if you park beyond the minimalistic parking area you are ticketed.

we love this trail. have done it several times.

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.

Incredible waterfall!!

Nice trail!
Just one thing that annoys the sh@# out of me. Visitors need to clean up after themselves. C'mon people #LNT.

Trial was great. We went during the week and only saw 4 other hikers on trail. Stay on the marked trails because some of the side trails can be overgrown.

impressive views of cumberland falls and the gorge. trail is steep in places and LOTS of steps. just be prepared. we traversed the trail with 3 kids ages 6, 5, and 1 (in a backpack carrier). overall good day.

Really beautiful trail. Can be fairly heavy on traffic as well as in the swimming hole.
