we love this trail. have done it several times.
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.
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.
Beautiful views of Cumberland Falls and Eagle Falls is beautiful. The hike back is straight up hill and a little tough. To get to Eagle Falls you have to climb over quite a few rocks.
Great hike! Lots of stairs but worth the views. Loved hiking the perimeter of the cliff face and rock hopping the Goliath boulders near Eagle Falls.
Beautiful day for a hike. Great views of Cumberland Falls. Quite strenuous at the end when trail becomes a boulder field. Heed the parking lot warning about valuables not to be left in car. Our car was vandalized. Much damage to car but little of value was stolen. Arrgh.
This trail was awesome! Its just challenging enough to leave me winded in spots with a 20lb pack on my back. awesome views of the Cumberland Falls!
Love this trail. Beautiful views of Cumberland falls from the other side. Way less people at the overlooks. There is a tree across the trail at one point almost to the falls that makes the trail tricky to follow and a little more difficult. There is a little pool at the bottom of the falls that we splashed around in for a little while!
Parking at trailhead. Well marked trail. At first goes high above Cumberland River for wonderful view of Cumberland Falls. Then past nice rock formations along trail. Steep trail down to river and Eagle Falls. Go early to avoid crowds.
Great hike. Take water shoes and play under the falls when you go.
Wonderful hike. Well marked trail. Lots and lots of steps. My Fitbit calculated an equivalent to 54 flights. Lots of people to and from. Go earlier to really be able to enjoy the scenic view you are hiking toward.
Wonderful hike. Take the loop to really get the best of this hike.
Beautiful hike, well marked trail.
This trail is moderately difficult. Lots of stairs. Hiked it during Spring Break with my 6 and 8 year old girls. It can be crowded at times. We brought a picnic lunch and ate overlooking the Falls. Lucked out and were the only people back there for about 45 minutes. Satisfying hike.
