Hiked this trail on 9/13/18, it was a good trail, not difficult, well marked and had some cool rock formations. We had the place to ourselves, we didn't see a single other person the whole day.

Love this hike but not a,easy hike ticks steps and climbing was great ..

Honestly the many things that you see along the way are just as impressive as the falls itself! Sadly there was a lot of trash on the trail but otherwise it was amazing!

Great day out with just the wife. :) moderate hike. Hot day. Great overlook. A bit crowded at final fall today though. No complaints.

Fantastic hike. The roar of the large Cumberland waterfall in the front end of the hike is awesome. The second half - lots of stairs - is also very interesting. Lots of large rocks, boulders and outcroppings. Swimming hole and falls as the grand finale!

make sure you take the second trail head down the road. the first will result in a 10 mile hike. we accidentally made the mistake when we went for the first time and didn't bring enough supplies.

Absolutely beautiful trail. Incredible rock formations, beautiful wild flowers, gorgeous falls. It's well marked and maintained. It took us just under four hours, and that's including an hour and a half at the falls. The shade is great too! Take a stick because we went through at least 30 spider webs!

fun hike! last time I was there we saw a massive black bear on the road

beautiful short stroll to a lovely view up and down the river. Be aware, it can get incredibly muddy very quickly.

The falls are well worth the walk. It is to be noted however that the trailhead from Cumberland Falls is marked incorrectly because this is a 10.25 mile in/out instead of a 7 mile in/out.

Awesome sights to see fun trail to hike, definitely recommend going after a good rainy day though so the waters still up falls weren't that big when we went

This is probably my most favorite place to swim. Such a beautiful and majestic waterfall. It wasn't overly crowded either!

Me and my wife took this trail with our 14 week old puppy and she loved it. It wasn’t too difficult but I could see where it would be after a heavy rain.

If you follow this map, you hit Princess Falls about halfway through. If you continue to follow it, it ends at Lick Creek Falls. You actually get three waterfalls on this trail counting the small Julia Lynn Falls.

This was my first hike before having this app. A bit tough for a beginner. But I can’t wait to do it again. Absolutely beautiful from start to finish

Perfect hike for myself and my 6 year old, we loved it! We did the whole loop and it was challenging enough without being too strenuous on him. My son was able to swim in the water near the falls which made the hike extra rewarding. Any other time of year it would be too cold though, we came in August.

For old people it’s a little difficult but we loved it!

This trail was so much fun! It was a little challenging, but overall it was great! It also had some amazing views along the way

Very cool trail and scenery. We only walked to arch-did not do whole loop.

Stayed many nights along the river here with friends. Cascades are neat and trail intersects with the Sheltowee trace 100 along the way at the cascades. Some of the inclines along the way are little tougher than a moderate rating I thought.

Hiked with group of friends and all our kids. Great day hike with a nice waterfall at the end of loop. Would like to go back in winter and see the ice and snow on falls.

We love to go on this hike every year and it never gets old. Many camping spots along the way to Vanhook falls with a couple smaller waterfalls to see as well. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good hike.

Great day hike trail with plenty of good overlooks into Cumberland Falls and the river. Kid friendly and beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail loop. We stop in here at least once a year.

Hiked here from Cumberland Falls. Such a beautiful hike with a chance to take a dip and cool off at the falls. Definately needed the rest to finish off the 10.5 miles.

The trail itself is what received the five star rating. It is well maintained and can be completed by almost anyone. The last part of the trail recording (after Bunches Creek) actually appears to be a jeep trail. The next time I venture on this trail it will probably be as a trail run. As far as Devil's Rock, I am not sure if I saw it or not.

Beautiful view and gorgeous waterfalls. Just wanted to get out and see what kind of trails Kentucky has before I head home. I would recommend this trail to anyone and everyone that wants to see some gorgeous scenery.
