Encompassing 125,000 acres of the Cumberland Plateau, Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area protects the free-flowing Big South Fork of the Cumberland River and its tributaries. The area boasts miles of scenic gorges and sandstone bluffs, is rich with natural and historic features and has been developed to provide visitors with a wide range of outdoor recreational activities.

Our favorite hike so far. Words can't describe how amazing this trail is.

Nice trail, beautiful and picturesque. There were some decent primitive camp sites. I wish we would have taken our kayaks. There were bathrooms, picnic tables, and charcoal grills in the parking area.

Great hike for new hikers has a few hills to push through but nothing major for those in moderate or better fitness. Nothing to complain about, nothing to brag about.

I think it's more of a moderate trail if you follow it all the way out to the meeting of the rivers.

one of my favorite hikes in the area. Nice easy trail but watch for snakes!

Awsome trail......highly recommend you do this trail counter clock wise. From trail head sign walk up gravel road about 150 ft on your right small set of wood stairs, go up hill. Trail has it all, its tough but rewarding. Follow the green markers a arrows painted on rock.

Only did to Princess Falls and back and I think it was about 2.5 miles total. The water fall wasn't flowing as heavily as I thought following a rain, but it was still beautiful.

Great trail that runs right along the river for the majority of the length of hike. Also there are many great campsites along the trail!
