Stunning views of Cumberland Falls and many interesting rock ledges lead to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Kentucky. This is a must-do hike.

The kids had a lot of fun and the scenery could be beautiful. Sadly, the place is a mess- used tampons, toilet paper, chip bags, water bottles...really gross. The amount of broken glass was impressive, and not in a good way.

This is a fun trail that is well maintained. I went yesterday and ran the trail. There are quite a few teens that visit the area in the summer time so you have to be careful with young ones. Over all great trail.

Very nice views of the river, falls and rock formations.
The trail head sign labels trail as strenuous. I agree. The trail offers a workout, even for the fit.
There are several very steep areas with steps. There are also some areas that require good balance. If you need a fairly level trail with ease of walking, this isn't it.
Spending some time at the Eagle Falls is a peaceful disconnect from the world.

Gorgeous view of the Falls, we could see a rainbow from the mist of the water. Nice hike a lot of steps. The metal stairs are a little scary. The Falls are beautiful. Not a hike for anyone that may be out of shape.

Great hike and work out. Hit the trail early to beat the crowds and leave yourself time to take pictures. I wished I had taken my lunch as there are not a lot of options at the main part of the park or in the area.
