.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.

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.
