hiking

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.

hiking

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.

fishing

Didn't catch any fish so decided to hike. The hike was nice but the trash was gross. I always carry a bag to carry out trash, this was the most I've ever had to pick up. Mostly at the beginning. Obviously a hangout for slobby people.

Love this trail. It's got some terrific terrain and under the arch is a great point to rest. One of my favorite RRG trails.

on Cumberland Falls Number T...

This trail is more of a moderate plus. There are lots of elevation changes 742 ft to 1381 feet. Lots of up the hill and down the hill. Very rocky and slippery when wet. Hiking poles are a necessity when hiking in wet conditions. You need to be in good shape to do this trail. Do the trail counter clockwise. The first half of the trail is all woods and not much scenery. the second part parallels the river and comes up from down river of the falls. Bring plenty of water!

The small foot bridges are in disrepair and rotting. The trail is very difficult to follow in places.
