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

Really enjoyed the hike to the falls. The trail is gorgeous, and the "obstacles" walking in and around rocks and tree roots made it interesting. Definitely not difficult, since we saw many people with young children during the hike. Took our two Chihuahuas along and they had no problem with the terrain. The falls at the end made the hike well worth it.

We did this today and the views and hike were great. Only downfall was the ticks!! We sprayed boots, pants and socks and just pulled 20 baby size ticks off of the wife.

It is a beautiful place. You can see the falls with a much shorter hike though. (I have done both hikes.) If you go to the main entrance for Yahoo Falls there is a small parking lot and bathrooms. From this point it is only about 1/2 mile to the falls. You can cross over at the top of the falls (just don't take the path that says it goes to the arch) and take a trail down to the bottom of the falls. Very pretty area. There are steps going up if you cross over at the base of the falls...they are real "thigh-burners"...or go back up the path you came down. Makes for a nice, cooler, shorter, kid friendly, hike.

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.

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.

This trail is very well maintained and the scenery is breathtaking. I think this trail is a little harder than what I consider easy but not really what I would consider moderate. The top is totally worth anyone’s time and effort.

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

Hiked this trail back in June for my birthday. I took the metal steps down to where you can pick up the trail to hike along the creek or go on out to the Falls. I took the creek, it seemed less traveled and it gets tight and wet in spots. I actually got off the trail once for a bit but got back on with no problem(yes, a bit of an adrenaline rush). Went up to the Falls and cooled off, went on out to Yahoo Arch and out some of the old road Negro Creek Loop and then back but stayed on the trail that takes you across the top of the Falls. (This is part of a back country trail that hooks into the Sheltowee Trace Trail. You can also stay at Alum Ford Campground as well as the backcountry)

Loved the water fall. Was so much fun!!

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.

Nice day trek with plenty of water along the way for our dog. Very neat bridge with a nice creek to stop and take some pictures at before making the hike back. Remember its almost uphill the whole way back.

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.

This trail is HARD.

Swiming hole!!! Much more private than Graveyard Fields just up the road.

An easy hike over a well maintained trail. Easy parking. A must stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Despite the name, wear your fur. Otherwise there might be pointing, giggling, and shrinkage.

Five woofs!

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.

Amazing trail for myself, 14 & 9 y/o. Beautiful views and gorgeous waterfall. Perfect hike!

After playing dodge the pothole down a grave road, we found the 2nd trail head (which isn’t marked at the road!). Sign states 1 mile which it is to the top of the falls and another 0.3 to the bottom. The path is slightly narrow and extremely filled with roots. All in all it was a moderately hard trail with some very nice rock structures and a nice creek along side the path. Once at the falls our dog got to swim in the cool water and enjoy scenery. Only issue is the huge piles of trash collected on the bank.

dog Slaughter Falls had a wonderful view of the waterfalls at the end of the trail. the only thing that was a complaint would be the signs were incorrect mileage hike. but other other than that I wouldn't change a thing about our trip. it was beautiful, I would recommend it!

Shady trail and nice enough but no great views as you go along. Agree it’s is easy for anyone that can go up and down hills. The real attraction is the falls at the end. Very pretty. The swimming hole is family-friendly and crowded at midday.

I wouldn’t call this trail easy, it’s quiet the workout. It’s very steep in parts. But it’s a good short hike if you’re doing it for some intense exercise.
