Moderate to hard trail with amazing scenery including rock staircases, mature forest, and a really cool arch that runs along side a small stream. This trail has some pretty steep and long inclines that are slick and should not be used by inexperience hikers.

fun hike! last time I was there we saw a massive black bear on the road

Over all good trail, easily marked and only some small elevation changes. beautiful falls at the end. It rained on and off for two days before my trip. Great flow and amazing sound.

The falls are well worth the walk. It is to be noted however that the trailhead from Cumberland Falls is marked incorrectly because this is a 10.25 mile in/out instead of a 7 mile in/out.

This trail was awesome! We took the white trails that branched off the red which i highly recommend and added over a mile to our total. The white trails have the really great parts! The creek was great! There were butterflies everywhere that landed on us! We saw several deer that had no fear of us at all! This is a beautiful, peaceful place.

This was a beautiful hike but it is NOT a loop. The map doesn't show it as a loop either. There was a fork in the trail towards the beginning, we followed the trail marked John Holder. The creek was wonderful! There were lots of places to wade and swim. We followed the creek for a while then backtracked a bit to get back on the trail.

very nice trail! for sure worth the short hike! don't forget your swimsuit because there's a nice swimming hole at the bottom.

Awesome sights to see fun trail to hike, definitely recommend going after a good rainy day though so the waters still up falls weren't that big when we went

Trail? Lol

Good trail for running.

Absolutely beautiful place. The creek was a pain to get too but well worth it once we got down there. The hill on the other hand to go back up can kiss my butt. I lost my water somewhere and it was a really hot day and had to keep sitting down because I thought I was going to pass out and not one person who walked by me and my son asked if I was okay. Other then that the creek was worth the hike.

We enjoyed kayaking and then hiking to the waterfall. Very pretty. I did unknowingly get into some poison ivy so be aware that it’s along the path to the waterfall.

Short, easy, and fun hike. The best view is climbing on top! It was amazing!

Interesting rock structures. It is a really short easy hike. The rock structures at the end are well worth the short amount of time it takes to hike to them.

Pretty hard hike, but so worth it! It was much fun!

Very few people at the park on a Monday morning. Beautiful trees and vegetation. Gentle, rolling hills

Unfortunately the lake was very stagnant making the views “Ok”. Did love all the water lily....made it a worthwhile hike. Unfortunately couldn’t do the full loop due to the connecting path being destroyed by storms

Really enjoyed this trail. Especially liked the beaches by the lakes, great place to stop and have a snack while enjoying the views.

Loved this trail! The beginning is pretty steep, but definitely manageable. When you get toward the top its gets a bit difficult. My boyfriend and I brought our puppy, so he couldn’t walk the whole way up. Luckily he is only 3 lbs. so we could pass him back and forth and catapulted him down between the rocks. Definitely would not take a dog alone, but its possible with two people who are comfortable handling the dog. The view was incredible!

The trail is rated as difficult, but I thought it was easy. It wasn't difficult what so ever.

We saw mushrooms, wild berries, toads, caterpillars.

We absolutely loved this trail and the falls was amazing. The first part of the trail is blacktop till you get to the observation deck at which point you can look down to see the waterfall. We then took the dirt trail- which is not marked, you have to leave the observation deck and head back where you came from. In a short distance you will see a dirt trail to your left, not hard to find but you have to look for it. From there this will lead you down to the bottom of the falls. There are lots of big rocks you have to walk down on which was kind of tricky for us since we had our 2 and 3 yr olds in tow but was doable. At one point you will cross a wooden bridge with the creek underneath, very pretty. As you keep walking you will also pass a small cave which was pretty cool. Once at the falls you can swim at the bottom or wade in the water. Lots of large rocks and bolders. The falls is so much more beautiful in person, I wanted to stay there forever taking pictures.
We visited this trail on a Monday so we saw a total of 4 people. There is a large covered picnic pavilion and really nice bathrooms. We saw maybe 4 campsites but there could have been more. Would definitely go back if close to the area. This trail is about 45 - 50 mins from Natural Bridge State Park which is also really nice.

A warm Sunday at Berea Pinnacles. Love exploring and seeing new sights. Very good views once you make the climb up to the ridges. I like to see the views in the fall, bet there gorgeous!

This wasn’t really what I would call a hike. Seemed more like a stroll through a park. Don’t get me wrong, there are some uphill trails that will get your legs and lungs working, but some of the overlooks weren’t that great. East Pinnacle had a bunch of trees blocking the view and there was broken glass scattered along most of the trails. Eagle’s Nest was a beautiful view of the area, though. These trails are highly trafficked. We went on a Sunday morning, and by noon, there were lots of people around. It’s a decent trail but nothing to spectacular.

It’s such a beautiful view

Easy trail, actually a road used to access fields around the lake , well maintained. No markers and no gps or phone signal. Very secluded and a great place to swim or fish. Many places to get in the water if you search off the beaten path a little

Nice trail for the kids to enjoy creek play. Watch out for snakes! After a heavy rain the creek is harder to navigate and you should always wear shoes you don’t mind wading in. Deep spots along cliff walls, near the back of the trail by the no trespassing sign is a nice swimming hole. Not overly strenuous but could be hard for youngsters or older folks to safely balance on some of the rocks.

We do this trail frequently when we have a short amount of time to be in the area. The kids love seeing the springs in different seasons and it’s a nice, easy walk on well maintained trails.
