Good trail. My mileage was closer to 10.9.

fun trail. watch the kids on the top because their aren't ant hand rails. good condition too.

short and easy, good for kids too.

It was an absolutely beautiful trail! Between the mountain laurel trees, flowers, small waterfalls and streams, it just made a well rounded hike.

Throughly enjoyed hiking the trail. Didn't see anyone until we were almost back to the trailhead. From a photography standpoint, the falls is a little difficult to photograph because it is not very thick. However, there is a small set of waterfalls that are very photogenic along with the creek and the large bolders

great views. Trail marking is sketchy in places.

Great hike with some good hills and beautiful rock formations and creek crossings. Every time I go though I notice others have left trash camping past the bridge. Unfortunate to soil such a pretty place. LNT

A nice trail. The arch was cool and a decent view at the beginning/end depending on which way you go.

A MUST see trail when hiking the gorge! We took our dog with us on this easy trail. The trail takes you to this beautiful waterfall and swimming hole and our dog loved every second of it! This is the perfect place to take your kids, just make sure to pack a lunch and some swimsuits because you will want to stay and relax for a while!

If you are looking for the easy part of Gray's Arch trail, I would suggest just making an in and out trip from the campsite. It's a beautiful hike but I would call it more moderate than easy.

We had a great hike here today. Perfect trail and absolutely love the suspense bridge!

Good tree coverage so it is perfect even for a hot day. Perfect to take the dog.

I hiked to Makers Arch first. Trail was adequate but a bit overgrown. (1 mile). Then continued to Yahoo Falls. Beautiful rock formations abound once you get into the ridges. The falls is amazing and is worth the hike. However, don't take this hike lightly. I did the 5 plus miles in just a bit over 2 hours. Take water with you and apply bug spray before going into the woods. Although All Trails rates the trail as moderate because of the distance and elevation change it is on the Hard end of Moderate. Great Hike!

Beautiful views. Apparently it’s a pretty popular trail. Several people there by the time I arrived at 9:30 a.m. and the parking lot was full by 12:30 p.m. when I was leaving on a Friday. I would rate it as moderate. I didn’t make it to Courthouse because the dog was nervous about the stairs, would like to go back and do the loop.

One of my favorite short hikes. Great views and a nice hike to test a new backpack before going out for several days. varied terrain will show you any issues it might cause.

Amazing views!

One of the best hikes in RRG.

rating it a 3 because I thought I would see the view in the picture. I had only forest views. although it is June, so perhaps the views are only visible in winter/fall (there were only a few trees in the way at the top). without a view at the top, it was really just a path to nothing and then the same path back out. I was still able to catch the sunset at the beach at the campground, so all is good. Seems like a nice place to camp so far.

Finding the trail at first was a little difficult, the trailhead is probably 20 feet from the bridge. The trail itself doesn’t seem too hard but plants growing along the trail will have you pushing limbs, bushes, briars, and other plants out of the way of your walking path. At times the trail gets very narrow and often you will duck under low hanging limbs. The end of the trail is very pretty but some of the rocks and hills are a little steeper and challenging. Overall, the trail isn’t the best but the end of the trail is very worth it.

Perfect for a relaxing hike, not too strenuous or difficult! Gorgeous views and plenty of great spots for pictures!

Really enjoyed the first mile as you can see the lake most of the trail. After that we ran into a few problems. The trail is fairly narrow. There was a lot of long grass with "stickers" that hung across the trail and were relatively painful. Of course, that grass also meant ticks - I removed about 20. Along the water, the trail was washed out at 4 places, making it somewhat difficult to cross. If not for these problems, we would have really liked the trail.

Love this trail. Great scenery beautiful landscapes from start to finish. Hike it in the summer and winter (wet) months for different views. Little waterfalls pop up throughout the trail....and if you like Paw Paws there’s a little grove close to where Bark Creek intersects with the Cumberland River....Nice little snack to enjoy before either heading back to the trailhead or onto the Sheltowee Trace.

Beautiful trail, long but fairly easy. Not many other people there. Except hobos that have set up camp right by the main falls that are not friendly. I'll be calling someone about them asap. The rest was wonderful, we sat around at Cane creek and went in the water for awhile.

Great hike with awesome views. We missed the first turn and added about 2 mikes to our hike, but still worth it.

Wow! anyone using the app for directions to trailhead though beware.... trail does not start from there. Be prepared to get wet!

This hike was crazy insane fun! It was raining and foggy but it did not stop several people from hiking the trail that day :) I really enjoyed this hike, crossing the Creek several times.

This place has it all :) Absolutely beautiful and well taking care of♡

Best and favorite hike and backpacking place, although there isnt a bad hike in the area.
