Beautiful and pretty easy. Not much up and down. Even prettier if you continue past the falls to where the creek meets the river.

decent, but wish I had visited after more rain and falls were heavier.

Not a bad hike for me (I ran Yamacraw the day before), difficult for others. Some good elevation changes with some stairs too. Getting to Eagle falls is worth it. It pools clear green below the tall falls before entering the Cumberland river.

one of the most beautiful I've hiked

Great views

The falls are absolutely beautiful!

Hiked the trail today after 2+ “ of rain yesterday! The falls were fantastic!! We stayed probably 45 minutes taking pics and just enjoying the fall!! Great easy hike to go. Loved it!!

Very nice trail ! View was awesome !

Nice trail, beautiful view!

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

Part of the trail is out so you have to walk on the street for a bit. Most of the trail is well maintained. Only thing that makes it moderate is a couple hills. Beautiful view of the falls at the end of the tral. Well worth the 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.

I was slightly disappointed in the trail. That could be because I am not entirely sure what qualifies as a 'moderate' trail in difficulty. The trail was rocky, meaning small to medium rocks everywhere making it rough to walk. Part of the trail is closed so there is no loop. You get to the falls and must turn around.

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.

Nice trail. Great views.

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

Went early this October morning. Saw lots of deer and pretty views. Good hike.

Nice lookout. Some graffiti on the trail, which is disappointing.

Great trail that everyone in Kentucky should go to

I wouldn't call this one easy. More of a moderate-strenuous. Lots of ups and downs, very rocky and cliffy. It was very wet due to very large amount of rain Saturday, but that helped to have running falls and cascades. I enjoyed it very much.. I seen deer 50ft away from me, watched a hawk try for a fish and lots of mushrooms and creepy crawlies. Only down fall, foliage blocks the best views of waterfalls, so spring or winter to see the best.

This was a great trail. The uphill slope was a great workout and the falls at the end were beautiful. I think it is worth mentioning the mileage is slightly off as part of the trail is closed off and you must follow a trail detour down the road a ways.

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.

There are two trail heads, we started at the furthest point out on the gravel road 198. This is about 4 miles one way. There was recent heavy rain so conditions were wet. The trail is not currently well maintained, as there were several fallen trees and the last section before the second trail head is grown over. However, it was all passable and an interesting hike. The falls was awesome with the rain. I would consider moderate due in part to distance and condition.
