I didn’t mind the gravel road. It follows a ridge line through the woods and was very pleasant. We combined this hike with Star Arch which made a 6.25 mile hike. It was easy walking with staircases for the few steep sections. Some views of Courthouse Rock and nice views from the arch.

great hiking trail! i want to go back and do the super loop which this is part of.

Gorgeous views from the top.

Easy hike for all ages; great views!

Took our Cub Scout den yesterday. Had a great time. Fall colors were perfect !

Does anyone know if there are any accessible trails for a Wheelchair?

Our go to short hike. Metal grated stairs at end get the heart rate up just in time to collapse in the car if you haven't been keeping up with your cardio but also scare our dogs so will not be bringing them along in the future. A nice hike any season you choose. Found Sunday evenings in particular to be our favorite time to hike here. Few to no other hikers even during tourist season.

great place for a day hike and a picnic.

Loved it! It is a very beautiful place!

Beautiful in the early spring. Note there are multiple starting points for this trail. The longest is around 10 miles

Beautiful views. Great hike.

Beautiful falls, easy hiking, trail with heavy foliage. Quite and tranquil. We didn’t see anyone on the trail, it’s well marked with the white markers with in about 50 feet’s of each other. The little wooden bridge is a cute touch, Cumberland isn’t to far but not accessible from this trail, we ended up driving to that location since we were able to hike there. But the trail is beautiful one I would recommend to an avid hiker or beginners.

very beautiful Trail Falls is awesome at the end Trail is a little rough. as we went down last time we seen some Bear Prints in the mud on the trail.

Fun trail! It has some really cool features: small caves, an arch and a waterfall. I’m going back in a couple of weeks to explore some of the off-shoot trails and see the fall colors.

Fun. I personally like the eagle's nest trail.

Great to be so close to Lexington yet so removed. Almost every one says Hi on the trail. We have dogs I understand both the danger of the cliffs and protection of the woodland creatures.

Amazing views of the gorge from the Sky Bridge and surrounding trail! An easy loop for me and my dog - although I did have to carry him up the few metal steps. :) I would do this hike again and bring others!

great trail with rewarding views. connect it with auxier ridge trail to get a much longer and more rewarding hike

Trail has been chewed up by horses in some areas and several spider webs (in late summer) indicate how little this trail is used. Good for an overnighter.

Very easy small hike! Beautiful flora & fauna! Views are amazing and just a fun place to visit! Highly recommend!

As a Kentuckian, Natural Bridge is obviously a hallmark too us! Love natural bridge!

Good trail... lots of litter though :-/

I took Rock Garden to the north and then looked back around to connect up with the natural bridge, finishing by taking the Balanced Rock trail to the south. Surprisingly very little foot traffic on Rock Garden, take Balanced Rock down from the Natural Bridge if you want to avoid going up the stairs.

The best view!! I am Terrified of heights but the bridge is wide enough that I felt safe, even with my dogs by my side. Warning to anyone with dogs- the stairs are open iron grids and my dogs did NOT enjoy it on their paws. Other than that, no complaints! There was an amazing breeze on top of the bridge.

Great trail that everyone in Kentucky should go to

Such a gorgeous trail! You can skip the loop and go straight to the falls without doing the whole loop. Took 4 kids and the water under the Falls was perfect for swimming. Deep and refreshing on a 86 degree October day! The area around the falls was fun to relax and explore. We scaled the giant rocks and explored by the river. Tricky getting back up but worth it. A fairly easy trail but lots of steps. Uneven footing and steep drop offs so maybe not great with little children. Gorgeous view of Cumberland falls.

Beautiful hike. There is some high Cliffs and it is a pretty steep drop when you get to the top of the falls. There are a lot of kids on the trails and I brought mine but there were a few instances it made me a little nervous with them.
