Climbing this rock reminded me just how old I’m getting and how heights are starting to be alittle scary lol. All jokes aside this hike was beautiful and the view on top of chained rock was amazing and breathe taking.

This is why I do not care for, or trust alltrails. This is not one trail, it is five. Going clockwise, you start out on the bison way trail (from the bison way trailhead) pick up the sheltowee. Then turn onto the lost branch trail. That will take you to Osborne Bend, turn right on it to take you back to the road. Turn right on the road to get back to the car. Taking or leaving out the side trip up to tower rock.

Rocky trail so watch where you’re walking. Had it not been a cloudy day, the majority of this trail
would be in the sun. As all Devou parks, the signage has a lot to be desired. At least there are some on this one, though.

I was very disappointed in this trail. The signage is nonexistent (look at my photos to see the poles but no signage). Also the trail is very rocky so you have to watch every step or you’ll twist an ankle.

Makes for a great day of riding!

Nice trail. Mostly shaded, lots of elevation changes, plus nice views.

very hard Trails lots of uphill you can no matter which way you go it seems like it's always a lot of uphill

best mountain bike trails in Louisville

love this place. so peaceful and great workout for me. perfect length and test of physical fitness. Would definitely recommend as ive been going for over 10 years now. Beautiful waterfalls and great view if you hike to the top. dog friendly and low traffic. there is a easy paved walking trail at top for those who cannot complete hiking trails and there is seperate rd to this. also easier trails across rd with ponds and creek that is a peaceful quiet setting and has picnic tables.

Very hot and some challenging ascents so bring plenty of water

We enjoyed this trail this morning. The blacktop path was nice but exploring the trails along the creek were the best!
Not your typical “hiking trail” but great for pictures and a cool dip in the pool below the falls.
Great parking and great starter hike for the little ones!

Nice Kentucky hike

Really easy loop-trail, you can’t get lost. There were a ton of spider webs crossing the trail when I went. The ‘scenic lookout’ view was completely covered by trees. The view from the gravel parking lot was pretty cool

Keep an eye out for snakes. I saw about 7 babies and one large black one about 5ft. long. Other than the snakes it was a nice and peaceful trail.

One of the more interesting hikes I’ve done in Res River Gorge. I wouldn’t think that most people would rate it as easy, especially the first part including the Indian stairs but certainly doable. Also parts are not marked so well so the app is very handy.

Great trail for a few hour hike. 3 awesome formations with many other great sights! For sure moderate with a few steep climbs about half way through.

Awesome trail with lots to see and do. Has a beautiful waterfall and caves to explore. We did the otc trail. Will definitely be coming back. They also have bald eagles.

Awesome trail but not well marked but every trail comes back to the place you started so you can’t get lost

I enjoy this trail very much. i have hiked there and camped there. great overlooks

Go to the right when you start the trail. Better views right away.

half way can be a bit steap and slick but the waterfall is beautiful.

Nice trail but the bridge is still closed. There is no other detour across the creek. Reversed the loop to get back to the trailhead. No big deal as the trail is easy, pleasant.

Did the original trail this past Saturday. Good trail. Not very long and good elevation gain. Trail was very busy with hikers because of the great weather.

I tried hiking this trail last Saturday morning. A tree had fallen across the road so I wasn’t able to access the parking lot. Tried hiking later in the day and between the sun, heat and me being tired of hiking multiple other trails. I was unable to complete. Will try again another time.

Hiked this past Saturday morning. Great hike. Was able to see more this time. Hiked in January 2016 and the trail was fog covered the entire time.

After playing dodge the pothole down a grave road, we found the 2nd trail head (which isn’t marked at the road!). Sign states 1 mile which it is to the top of the falls and another 0.3 to the bottom. The path is slightly narrow and extremely filled with roots. All in all it was a moderately hard trail with some very nice rock structures and a nice creek along side the path. Once at the falls our dog got to swim in the cool water and enjoy scenery. Only issue is the huge piles of trash collected on the bank.

Beautiful setting of Pine Mountain. Turn off to falls or rock was confusing to me and took the wrong turn up to Pine Mountain only to turn back to the falls. Amazing mushrooms in July. Small swimming hole at the bottom of the falls. I went after series of heavy rain so the water was abundant perfect for getting soaked.
