Please note that the viewing platform to see the falls has been reported closed (08/14/2020). This is the Cumberland River Loop trail. The trailhead begins at the cul-de-sac of the park's picnic area. However, park at the visitor's center lot, as this the termination of the 6.3 mile loop. Great hike. Nice river rocks along the banks offer a great place to eat lunch. Show more
