Awesome hike! Beautiful scenery!!!!!

Beautiful out and back hike. Total of 2.2 miles from second trailhead. Cross bridge over creek then follow trail to the right. Several small up and down paths on trail. Wonderful view of the falls at end of trail.
Can continue trail to tha Cumberland river and then on to the Sheltowee trace trail.

This is a beautiful trail and a great waterfall. Super easy and great for kids. Watch the edges along the trail. If your careful, you can walk behind this waterfall.

Beautiful hike and waterfall. Play in the river. Great time. Good hike for kids but watch young kids with the steep drops trails edge. I’ve seen many adults struggle on the hills. If your used to hiking this is easy.

Could hike this trail many times,the falls was beautiful!!!

Love love love this place! Strenuous hike but great exercise. There are some steps that were pretty tough but we just took out time. Seems to be pretty crowded through summer months, very popular place. Fun to explore and highly recommend it.

Perfect hike all year round!

Great trail for an over night trip. Unlimited watering points, plenty of camping spots and a lot of scenery. Dog slaughter and Bark Camp Creek falls are off of this trail so that's an added bonus. A couple of Sheltowee shelters along the way also. Next to the RRG, probably the most hiked section of the Sheltowee.

Another awesome waterfall the Daniel Boone has to offer. Just a small hike off of the Sheltowee or park at the trail head. Awesome trail. A couple of very dangerous drops if you have kids. A lot of water holes along the trail to play in.

It is beautiful right now because its almost totally frozen.

quiet on new yrs eve but fun to walk under icicles and go to base of the falls. some up and down. nice view of cumberland falls.

Great hiking trail. A few difficult areas made the hike fun. Parked at laurel lake dam and walked in. Great scenery as most of the hike is along Cumberland river. A lot of hills for the first 1.5 miles then the trail elevation evens out for most of the walk. Only made it in to bark creek and turned back. Great views of a waterfall on the creek made the entire trip worth it. Make sure not to miss out on this view. Took about 6 hours complete this hike which was, I would guess, 7 miles one way.

It was pretty challenging but a really great view of the large fall and small one. Just be ready to climb a lot of stairs.

It’s a beautiful hike. It took a little longer than we planned but it was really nice.

This is a nice, moderate hike with a stunning waterfall to reward your 1.1 mile trek out. I went for the first time in mid-November of this year on a cool, crisp morning. The trail is well-traversed and, for the most part, easy to hike. There are a few short stretches with steep and rocky terrain but is otherwise totally doable and easy. Before getting off the highway make sure you tap the location button and open it in your mobile maps app. It will take you to the exact location (the trailhead is tucked away a bit in the woods!)

Hiked this trail with my dog. i chose the second trail head because of time. Entrance is about 2.7 miles on forest road #195, off of hwy 90. The road is gravel and you won’t need a 4 wheel drive. I actually passed up the entrance to the trail, and had to back track and look closely. There is an entrance that is about 0.7 mile off of hwy 90, but this is a longer trail. Today the leaves are covering the trail but it is still fairly easily visualized. Be careful because they are also slick. The trail follows alongside the creek most of the trail. Right before reaching the falls, the trail forked and I followed the right which leads to a dead end but it is very dangerous because it is the top of the cliff that is parallel to the falls. This really needs a caution sign because you could easily slip and fall over this cliff if you aren’t paying close attention!The falls are gorgeous and there are plenty of rocks to climb on and the falls is easy to access and I look forward to hiking this trail again!

Loved this hike.

This is a great hike that is not too long but does have some very steep parts. It is well marked and has stone steps, wood steps and even steep steel steps near the falls. Beautiful woods and waterfalls although I think there could be nice places that if some brush was cleared would make more great views. We did this at the beginning of November and the leaves were a beautiful mix of colors.
