awesome trail.... can't wait to try it on the first snow.

a very nice hike and was pretty. pretty easy too

a very nice hike pretty and very easy

Our first Kentucky hike. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk back to the falls. Agree with all the reviews that it's fairly steep and rocky. We were glad we had our trekking poles. The label of moderate is accurate. I really do wish I'd taken a trash bag; unbelievable the amount of trash that people throw --Shameful!!!
Well marked and easy to find.

Up the trail and to the falls is great. Once to the top you may wonder why
it’s called a looped trail. I talked to a local (I’m from Indianapolis)
and she said that the trail does continue but hasn’t been maintained in
years. She added that if I continue on to stick to the creekbed. Most of
the way I walked in the creekbed. However, at one point my leg got stuck
in sand with water up to my knee. I thought my shoe might get sucked off
pulling out my leg. Most of the way the creekbed is easily passable. At
times ground is easily passable. Only several times was it difficult to
pass either way and I’m not someone that avoids a challenge.

Eventually you’ll pass underneath the railroad tracks that you initially
crossed to get to the Falls. It’s at that point that I suggest you
continue your walk on dry land. It doesn’t mean go back up to the train
tracks (which would be difficult), just get out of the water. Not long
after you’ll come to a road that, if you take a right, will take you back
to the parking lot.

Take some mosquito repellant with you if you continue on past the falls.

It is in and back, no loop that I could find. Wear good shoes as the rocky footing is tricky at times. The water was low, but still beautiful. Would definitely do this hike again..and maybe next time pick up those damn cig butts some left on the trail. Will bring trash bag next time. Felt safe to do this hike alone with my dog, only saw one other person on the path.

The scenery was beautiful n would love to hike it again but w/o my Yorkie-poo..the trail was too much for her little body.

This was a very interesting was a very interesting trial. The path was an important route for the transportation of troops and supplies during the Civil War. There are short pants into each creek bed to allow for photography and exploration of the bridges. It is very well maintained, and while it is not challenging, this Trail is something everyone in the area should explore.

The view didn't change much. The waterfall was beautiful. Was able to set up a hammock and relax. Quick & easy (:

It's was a good experience that's close to home. I always hiked farther out about 2 hours this is a cool place.

Very rocky and lots of uphill action but the waterfall at the end is worth the journey! I wouldn't bring my dog but she is spoiled and kinda old ;-) oh! And the view from the railroad track is absolutely spectacular!!

Nice gentle uphill walk with 3 one hundred and fifty year old bridges. My imagination ran wild thinking of the travelers from long ago. My only complaint would be that this trail had the most aggressive bugs buzzing me the entire time !

A pleasure! Keeps you on your toes with rocky terrain. Hiked it after a hard rain and the falls where sweet.

A true pleasure!

uphill n mostly rocky n fall wasn't hardly going. but i enjoyed the nature walk. seen deer, frogs, etc..
