Easy hike with a beautiful view. Lots of room to explore (although you cannot cross the creek as you’ll be trespassing on private property). No access beneath the falls so it’s hard to actually see the falls because you’re on top. 3-4 parking spaces so limited parking access. Recommend not taking the W road up signal mountain.

Really nice, short trail to a stunning view on a clear day. Limited parking at the trail head of about 4-5 cars. You will be at the top of the falls with very limited views of the Fall itself but the long range view is very much worth the minimal effort.

Such a beautiful place! The view is breathtaking. It's hard to see the waterfall itself since you end up standing at the top of it but you can see across to other mountains and hills and lots of trees. there's cool overhangs too. *BEWARE* There are VERY limited parking spaces. The "lot" only holds space for about 4 cars, and there's no other areas to park beside it.

Very short trail down to the top of the waterfall. Please take your trash with you so they don’t close it. Lots of trash on the trail today that we cleaned up do to others not being respectful. It’s private and can be closed folks!

Short and easy hike with a great scenic view of the Cumberland escarpment! From this trail, views of the waterfall are mostly from the top edge looking down - no access to the base of the falls. Drone photographers could probably capture some amazing shots. Parking is limited to 5-6 cars.

Short and sweet indeed. Watch you step! Hit the Mabbit Springs Trail (on Alltrails too to see the waterfall in all its glory from the other side. Respect the signage on that trail and stick to the route. Mabbit Springs trailhead is only 5 minutes from this one!

It's a beautiful short walk to an cliff with a beautiful waterfall. Don't bring small kids unless they are litterally attached to you. cause it's a very hi cliff. We are bringing other friends with us for a second time. It's our favorite place to bring out of town friends!

Great view! Not much of a hiking trail for it is a very short distance to the falls. You can only see the falls from the top and that’s if you’re brave enough to walk to the ledge, I would’ve liked a trail to go to the bottom on the falls so one could actually see it. The trail part has a lot of “side routes” so it was difficult trying to stay on the true path. But I will be going back for the view! It was beyond beautiful.

Minimal investment with a great reward! Even though the water wasn't flowing the view is stunning. I highly recommend it! There are a couple tricky rocky areas to navigate so if you have any mobility issues, be careful. Otherwise it's a very nice trail!
