Yahoo Falls Trail is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Whitley City, KY that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
I believe this to be one of the most beautiful places I have been in Kentucky. The falls and atmosphere was quite breathtaking. The trails and the signs are in need of updates, parking is also limited, but well worth a great day in the woods
Beautiful easy trail with a variety of sceneries
Love this trail and mostly the falls. We pass the steps and take the longer trail. Much easier and scenic. Go in spring or after good rains for the best flow. Stays pretty shaded so not had to get pictures even if you are a little late getting there.
The falls is not as impressive as some others in the area, but the trail goes behind the falls and you can view it from the top and the bottom. That made a cool hike. We also went out to the arch, which was cool but not outstanding. My kids were not impressed and felt like the hike to the arch was not worth it... I would do it again. It wasn't that far and you see all that there is to see on the trail
Google map use is accurate to site. Good parking with restrooms at trailhead. Suggest going immediately during/after good rain. Loop trail around waterfall. Suggest taking metal staircase on left near trail head down to path. See some neat rock formations then great view of waterfall and cavarn behind. Can walk down to creekbed and stand near fall. Take path thru cavarn behind fall then up. Side trail to be left above fall leads to Yahoo Natural Arch .08 miles out. Gorgeous hike in woods. Return from Arch on trail to falls and parking. Enjoyed this hike and the very high waterfall.
Nice shady hike on a hot, steamy day. Took dog and cooled off in the water at the falls.
Nice little trail. We turned it into an overnight trip by doing the loop. Falls had a nice amount of water in it.
Nice trail and falls when there is water flow.
Pretty nice, we went in early spring. Would love to come back when the trees have some more color. I highly recommend driving ten minutes to Blue Heron Overlook. You will not regret it; most beautiful view in KY!
Beautiful hike, well marked trails and plenty to see..
Waterfall is nice
Highest in state.
Really nice trail. The falls and arch are great. We took the kids and had a great day and meet some great hikers along the trail. Happy hiking!
We have been twice. Once to the bottom with our 8 year old son and another time around the top with our two dogs. The trip to the bottom of the falls requires going down fairly steep metal steps, so not recommended with dogs. The trail along the top of the falls, and on to the arch, has great views and moderate terrain due to the downed trees that I had to coax my dogs to jump over (which they seemed to enjoy.)
Beautiful, short and easy hike! Pictures don't do it justice.
