Great for a short hike with an awesome attraction in the middle- creation falls. I take my friends when they visit, pretty much anyone can do this trail. Love it.

camping

Went with a friend for a single night trip. The trail is pretty easy/moderate, mostly flat except for the decent to the river. Was a little disappointed that you cannot really access the river, was hoping to do some swimming. Entire hike to the campsite and back we had to wield a large stick in front of us to clear spider webs across the path, I've never seen so many on one trail before! Also, TICKS. After returning back to our car, we found dozens and dozens of seed ticks between the two of us. I would recommend waiting until late fall to do this trail, or get some really good repellent! Campsite does have a nice flat area for up to two tents and fire pit with a few large tree trunks to sit on.

Absolutely beautiful

hiking

Start at the trailhead across from the cemetery and follow the yellow trees! I would definitely recommend this one. Trails are nice, nothing too crazy steep. Nicely shaded. If you follow the loop and come out to break at the lodge lot, go down the stairs and you'll find the most beautiful view that leads right back to the trail loop. (Right along the water) We did about 4 miles in 2 hours. Watch for spiderwebs!

Nice loop trail that starts right next to the Carter Caves visitors center. There is a part where it gets really steep right after you pass the sign to return to the visitors center, but it's worth it. I did this by myself with my chocolate lab and we had a good time!

hiking

beautiful views from the top. I'd love to go down inside, but without climber's gear or balls of steel, I can't figure out how! there's a Grandview of the whole arch from the back trail in the last camp site before approaching the arch.

I took my dog on this trail this morning and it was very pretty. Fern bridge was beautiful. Carter Caves has a lot of parking and the employees at the welcome center were very friendly.

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.
