This was a pretty hike. A lot of up and down parts where your knees can bother you for days after the fact but a beautiful hike.

This trail was very strenuous but was a pretty end by the falls. Took a while to go in and back. The trail itself had many stops along the way with a lot of pretty rock formations and shaded spots.

Beautiful views but it's not a moderate hike. 2 days later and my legs are still burning! Strenuous to say the least. ALOT of steps and I wouldn't recommend the loop to rookie hikers.

Did this trail yesterday with my husband and lazy 9year old dog. Lots of hills and rocky areas but my dog did it all!!! He was exhausted after but still smiling... we had the falls to ourselves it was so peaceful and worth the trip. The directions took us right to the starting point for the 2 mile hike it's a long gravel road...take the trail to the left go over the bridge you'll see a sign

Beautiful!!! But very strenuous. Not for people with knee problems!!! There are 5 million steps.

Sign says 1 mile , well maintained , do get your directions saved , no service in the area . The road is not marked or the trail head . Very beautiful hike with towering cliffs along the way .

Beautiful hike and falls. Would recommend but note it is a long hike. We hiked 1 to 12 from Cumberland Falls. About 8 miles round trip.

Absolutely love this hike! Just enough inclines and declines to get your heart pumping. But DEFINITELY worth the hike to the falls. They're stunning.

Beautiful hike, out and back, with a swim in the fall's pool. Easy to follow path that is aptly rated as a moderate. Will gladly do this one again. Apparently, there is a 4 mi and a 2mi hike. I believe I drove to the farthest one from the pavement and ended at the 2mi hike.

I hiked the loop with a 4 year old. The first and last 4 10ths were rough to say the least. The rest was Very nice, we absolutely loved it. will definitely hike again.

Mr. Koontz's review is spot on. This is definitely on the upper end of moderate and parts can be a bit treacherous as one 73 year old man found out when he took a tumble down the narrow stair steps leading down to the falls. He was obviously shaken but ok though the ranger that came to his aid said this trail frequently trips up novice hikers as there are several steep inclines and a few slippery rocks. Please make sure you're wearing proper footwear. We saw some foolish people in flip flops. The flora and fauna are beautiful on the loop and the falls are very pretty.

beautiful trail amazing views and the falls does not disappoint took my 2 year olds and I had to pack them at a few points but the did most of the work on their own
