It took us about an hour to get to the falls from the forestry road trail head. Beautiful area.

Great hike with my 2 blue heelers.

Stunning views of Cumberland Falls and many interesting rock ledges lead to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Kentucky. This is a must-do hike.

beautiful waterfall. eagle lake with snowcapped mountains look peaceful and gorgeous!
trail is rocky and challenging.
parking lot is a bit crowded.

Nice way to see Cumberland Falls if you are staying at the park lodge and don't want to drive there. Trail #6 goes straight to the falls, while Trail #4 takes a longer route through the Cliffside Picnic Area. I prefer Trail #4 for its rock shelters and CCC-built stone steps. Fairly secluded except for the falls area, which of course is super crowded.

The kids had a lot of fun and the scenery could be beautiful. Sadly, the place is a mess- used tampons, toilet paper, chip bags, water bottles...really gross. The amount of broken glass was impressive, and not in a good way.

This is a fun trail that is well maintained. I went yesterday and ran the trail. There are quite a few teens that visit the area in the summer time so you have to be careful with young ones. Over all great trail.

I really enjoyed the trail, watch for snakes! I saw 2 on the hike back.

It's worth the walk there and back. I had fun going and would go again

Great hike if your wanting beautiful scenery and a good workout. Went with my children, ages 8 & 5. Falls is gorgeous! Be sure to bring the bug spray!

Beautiful all the way to the falls
