Nice way to see Cumberland Falls if you are staying at the park lodge and don't want to drive there. Trail #6 goes straight to the falls, while Trail #4 takes a longer route through the Cliffside Picnic Area. I prefer Trail #4 for its rock shelters and CCC-built stone steps. Fairly secluded except for the falls area, which of course is super crowded.

4 is a nice easy trail. The steps might be a problem for some making it slightly moderate. The attached map does not include trail 4, only trail 6 so be aware.
Trail 6 is a fairly quick walk to the falls. Again, steps may be a problem for some.
We saw several deer on trail 4 at dusk. They must be very use to people. We were able to get some pretty close video.

6 is a nice, easy hike to burn off some calories after a great meal at DuPont Lodge restaurant. Wasn't looking for copperheads but it sounds like we should have.
