It was pretty challenging but a really great view of the large fall and small one. Just be ready to climb a lot of stairs.

This is a great hike that is not too long but does have some very steep parts. It is well marked and has stone steps, wood steps and even steep steel steps near the falls. Beautiful woods and waterfalls although I think there could be nice places that if some brush was cleared would make more great views. We did this at the beginning of November and the leaves were a beautiful mix of colors.

The waterfall was beautiful and you can see Cumberland Falls on the way to Eagle Falls. The hike isn't very long but it's a decent trek. Enjoy.

Beautiful trail and also challenging in parts. Besides the falls, the forest is very rain forest like.

I was a little hesitant to go on this trail as a novice hiker after reading that it was pretty hard but I am so glad I did. It really was not as bad as some of the other people explained. There are a lot of stairs and steep inclines but it's balanced well with flat areas and declines. The view of eagle falls and the Cumberland Falls at the end is so worth it, it's gorgeous! We stayed down there for about an hour and swam in the water. Definitely recommend!!

Great hiking trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Take the loop to add more to the hike. Several views of Cumberland Falls from the begging of the trail. The trail can get busy at certain times of the year and parking can be limited during these times.

After the falls take the longer side of the loop. It's longer but earlier terrain.

The trail is a good hike, tail well marked, great views, and trail is very clean. You will work on this trail, steps and climb over rocks to see the falls. the additional loop is a great hike, most do not do the loop and there are some quite place along the trail to just hang out and enjoy the day in the woods.

Strenuous, steep hike. I would not recommend bringing your dog to this trail as there are some very steep spots and cliff edges with no railings. The stairs at the end to get to Eagle Falls are very steep and once you reach the bottom you have to climb around large rocks to get to the falls. Otherwise, the views are definitely worth the hike despite the trail being VERY busy. But you are able to see a great view of Cumberland Falls and Eagle Falls.

Moderate is perfect rating for this trail. The initial uphill wasn't so bad, but the climb back up from the falls was brutal. I was only carrying a camelback and my calves could feel the burn. Beautiful views of Cumberland Falls and Angel Falls. Nice rock formations and some ledges to maneuver around. Very enjoyable hike. Several short side trails going off of it. Well marked.
