Great place to take your k-9 to exert so energy. plan on giving him or her a bath when you get home if you go on a wet day. Beautiful hike and a little challenging at some spots. Definitely will return.

Beautiful hike along the river, lots of rock/cave formations along the way, falls are picturesque with a lot of places to sit and eat, and I imagine in the summer it would be a great swimming hole. A note about getting there, if you go using the directions from this site it will take you right to the unmarked parking area, walk about 200 feet away from the road on the well worn trail and you will see a bridge with a sign after it indicating the direction of the trail head.

Very nice easy hike.

I would rate this trail on the difficult end of moderate. There are quite a few steps with a decent amount of rapid elevation change, as well as some bolder hopping at the last bit. Lot of fun though, beautiful waterfall and you get an AMAZING view of Cumberland falls as well!

Great trail with nice views of the green river. Great for elevation gains.

Easy hike with the kids. Beautiful 65 degree January day. Deep puddles with frog eggs and newts. Ticks still out though.
