.75 mile hike up to Anglin Falls mostly uphill mostly easy a few challenging spots. Stunning rock cliff with stream trickling over - in Rainny season can appear like a waterfalls.

Super hard to find and google maps doesn’t do a good job of getting you there, but that’s just part of getting there. Once you find it, it’s a super cool trail with a lot to explore.

The trailhead could be difficult to find. I’d say the trail difficulty to the falls is easy-moderate. Access above falls is a little more challenging. We hiked after and during wet weather. This makes for a more spectacular water fall experience. Word of precaution: the trail and boulders are very slick during even the slightest rain.

Fun to have the trail to yourself. Buggy at the beginning (buzzing not biting). Cleared up for lovely waterfall. Pit stop on a road trip was fun. 6 year old loved it.

Great easy hike. It gets pretty steep at the end near the falls but worth it. Like other people say no cell service so look at the map before you go. Make sure you go after a good rain if not the falls maybe small.

This is a great little hike for families and groups with kids. The kids in our group ranged from 4-9 and there was lots to climb on and over with the prize of the falls to play in after the initial hike in. This location can be difficult to find and gps/cell service is spotty, so know where you’re going before you head out there.

Very nice, uncrowded, but can be difficult to find because of unmarked roads.

Beautiful hike. However, we didn't get to see the falls due to no rain. We did go above the falls where there was an amazing overlook. Most people stopped at the falls, but if you want an a venture and like to climb, I suggest to keep going.

Awesome trail, a little challenging with all the rocks. The waterfall was a little dry, but still cool. The only disappointment was climbing to the top of the falls to find a barb wire fence so u can't cross!

This is a great place to visit! Not a very long trail, but very challenging up near the falls and around to the top of the falls.
If you go and are not familiar with northern Rockcastle county, take a satellite GPS with you because there is no cell service In that area and the usual maps app takes everyone to the wrong place.
Signage is needed badly at the turnoff on hwy 421 all the way down Clear creek to Anglin Falls road. There is only one sign: at the parking lot!
Though hard to find, it is well worth the getting there!

Nice trail. The falls were hardly running, but a beautiful day to be outside.

Unique challenge with the steep incline over rocks but the waterfall is beautiful and has an extremely cool backdrop.

Great short hike to a beautiful waterfall. Out and back trail. Enough challenge to make it interesting. It gets especially challenging toward the end but we made it fine even with two preschoolers.

The first 80-90% of the trail is relatively easy! It only becomes more difficult as you near the falls. Lots of rocks to maneuver around. I would be nervous with my toddler on my back during that part, but the rest was great!

Nice hike for families, took my three year old he loved it. Easy hike, gets a little rocky at the end towards the waterfall. GPS got us lost, if you do not end up on angling falls rd it is the wrong directions.

I like this trail because it is a short easy hike with a nice little reward (waterfall) before you turn around and head back. This one would be good for kids. Small parking lot

Short and easy trail for all ages and fitness levels. Gets slightly muddy after a rain but the waterfall makes up for it.
