A small part of the trail is closed at the beginning. You will follow a detour down the road for a little while. About 1/3 of a mile from the trailhead, the trail splits to form the loop. This loop trail passes by 2 large train trestles that are still operational, but please stay off of the tracks. You will soon pass by an old set of stone steps, these steps lead downhill to remnants of an old spring house near the creek below. This was used as a stopping place for carriages in the 19th century. After about a mile you will come to the Tioga Falls, which is actually a series of falls, or even a cascade if the water flow is light. From top to bottom, the Falls are about 130 feet high. At this point the trail turns and loops back to the trailhead. The lower portion of the loop follows Tioga Creek, for approximately 1/2 mile. The trail soon reconnects, leading back to the parking area.

Easy hike. Great falls at the end. Technically you can't climb the falls but no one was around so...

BEAUTIFUL waterfalls!!! I have hiked this trail several times. Best to go after some rain. This trail has great views. Elevation can be moderate at times. The path crosses over a train track at the beginning. Wouldn’t recommend this trail for small children due to the steep drop off on the side of the walking path. One of my favorite hikes in Louisville.

Pretty good hiking spot with good views and the waterfall is stunning. A little confusing which way to go at times though. Lots of beautiful wildflowers along the trail. Definitely look for cardinal flower and trout lilly.

There's a bridge in the beginning with a "bridge closed" sign, but it appears most people are still using it. Further, the trail is closed at the beginning, and you have to take a short detour down the road, past a church on the right and a fenced in house on the left. Because of the rain, the trail is extremely muddy and slippery at some points. The trail is easy to moderate otherwise, and the waterfall is incredible.

Nice, short hike with enough elevation gain to make you feel like you're working for it. There is a detour back onto the road right at the beginning but it is short, only about 1/10 of a mile. The bridge does also say closed but the people I saw out there were using it anyway. If you're in the area, the falls are very pretty and worth the time.

Great hike when you’re short on time and need an outdoor fix! Waterfall is amazing, especially after a good rain.

A small portion of the trail is closed near the beginning but after the short detour the trail was wonderful with very little traffic. Right after the detour was most of the incline of the trail followed by a slight decline the rest of the trail. Ending at a beautiful waterfall. The view and sound was incredible.

Amazing view of the waterfall and the hike there was amazing too. Loved how you could go up and down the water fall as you pleased. Was a bit muddy but all in all was an amazing adventure.

A bit steep at the beginning and slippery with all the mud. Beautiful winding path. Some spots are level enough to actually run. The falls were beautiful with all the rushing water.

This is a good rugged hike, the first incline is a good workout. The best time to go is after a rain, it is muddy but the falls are awesome.

Had an awesome time and got the family out of the house in the winter and was only a 30 minute drive from our house! It rained a lot the day before so the falls were flowing!
