Did this one after the North and South Old Mac loop. Lots of people and kids playing in the creeks; wide, fairly flat trail. It's worth the time if you're at Frozen Head.

The falls are absolutely beautiful!

Came into falls from princess falls side wish the trail was marked a little better but was pretty easy
Beautiful Falls

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

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!!

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.

Even on a cold and rainy day it was still worth it.

very nice hike, folks at the gift shop were very knowledgeable and helpful.

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.

Nice little trail, great for the pup. Not really moderate, more like an easy moderate.

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.

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.

Worth the time

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

Hike is beautiful with big open trails, beauty all along the path. The finale is the waterfall at the end with the luxury of a comfortable bench on a platform to enjoy the view.

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

Great trail that everyone in Kentucky should go to

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 trail. The trailhead is not marked very well and is across the road from the parking lot next to a residence. Very boring for the first mile or so. Lots of spider webs so use a stick to knock them down. Abt a mile in it gets much prettier and lush. Gorgeous rock formations. Slick in spots. Good for kids just keep an eye on them. The falls were beautiful with a lil sandy beachy area. Talk falls that land in a rock pile so you can’t get under them really. Not really enough water underneath to wade in but I guess sometimes it would be a good I swimming hole to splash in with a sandy bottom. Headed out is mostly uphill. We did not see a single person on our hike on a beautiful Sunday in October so I’d say this trail is not frequented much.

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.

Loved this place, just went today definitely a good hike and picture taking place. Seen one snake other then that no problems other then saying wow a hundred times lol....
