I can't believe this is here and I've never heard of it. Amazing trail.

Beautiful scenery, not too difficult trails but just watch where stepping and would recommend taking a walking stick.

I’ve been to this trail twice this summer and will be heading back in the fall. It’s a quick hitting trail if you’re in a crunch for time, but is also a place you could spend hours enjoying the views and water. We usually get in the creek at the wooden bridge and follow it all the way until the end to start our descent (you’ll know when you’ve hit the end, trust me). You’re gonna need some shoes with grips for this trail because of the wet and at times challenging terrain. This trail is not for the faint of heart, but is definitely achievable. 5/5 recommend.

The trails here are very dangerous and slick. I fall and hurt myself. My boyfriend slid almost fall over a cliff and lost his walking stick. If you go here be extremely careful and let someone know where you are going.

The trail is well marked and in great condition. There is a steep climb on the way out but I hike to challenge my body and this is the perfect introduction for someone training.

Very pretty but a little rough. I am a beginner hiker and it was pretty hard for me. On my way down it’s pretty steep with a lot of drop offs. The trail to the cave and creek is pretty narrow and straight up rock stairs. On the way back we took a different trail that was mainly a gravel rode but it was pretty steep and up the whole way!! My fit bit told me I walked up 25 flights of stairs lol!! Very pretty and great views but for those that are not good with up hill or working on building up endurance this is very challenging!! Also had my dog (Shepard) and my youngest with us and this trail is not stroller friendly (we have a light weight running stroller with bike tires) my dog loved it but there were a few areas that were narrow and I was afraid she’d fall.

Great hike

Great trail easy to get to. Not so easy to find the way down to bottom of falls. If you are looking off the falls go to the right to find your way down.

I didn't like this place, it seems more like a teen hang out than a nature preserve. Went hiking and saw teens swimming and smoking pot. They were throwing trash everywhere. I will not be going back. No dogs allowed but there was dog poop everywhere. They need to monitor this place. It would be a great place if not for all the pot smoking teens. Will not be back.

The trail was mainly dry; however, the, often steep and sometimes slippery trail is offset by fantastic creekbed falls/scenery. I definitely would not recommend, when wet.

It is a simple hike if you find yourself to be a physically active person. You just need to keep kids close when walking down the steep area. I probably would exercise caution if conditions were icy &/or muddy.

It is a great view of the fall though. It is so close to Lexington too. It is great. I am coming back for sure.

I was unexpectedly and pleasantly surprised. Very cool trail that runs along the palisades next to the KY River.

Great views. A few tough spots. I would rate this moderate to hard in certain areas depending on how you go down. Recommend as superior on cool hikes. Love it.

This is a great trail! I'm fairly new to Kentucky and still learning my new surroundings, and this place is definitely on my favorites list. A great way to spend a couple of hours, and the waterfall was awesome.

The main trail is very easy and suitable for all ages.

The hike along the creek is awesome, but it is a little tricky in places. Great views of smaller, cascading falls leading to the main waterfall and views of the gorge. I didn't take the trail down the side of the cliff to the bottom of the falls, because I didn't quite feel prepared, but I will go back next time better equipped.

I would definitely consider this a hidden gem for the area. If you enjoy the sights and sounds of a beautiful stream, cool rock formations and the feeling of being lost in nature, but yet being only minutes from civilization, this is the place to go!

After my first trip here I was disappointed because it had rained a lot recently so it was very wet and I was hesitant to venture down to the creek and see the waterfalls. but after today I loved this place. Hiked along the creek starting right at the bridge and made it to the main waterfall which was unbelievable. The decline to the bottom was definitely dangerous and very steep. my dog made the trek with me and required to be picked up and helped out a few times. But the view and spectacle of the giant waterfall and hiking up to the cave was definitely worth it all.

It was slick on the day I went, a beautiful hike, but a bad day to run. of it is dry and you want hill repeats though this would be a great place.

Just finished the trails on Sunday and it is worth visiting because of the cliffs and the waterfalls in that area. I would definitely recommend a hiking or walking stick for some areas. The waterfalls are not very large but worth seeing after a good rain day. We recorded our trip if you are interested in seeing some pieces of it. https://youtu.be/3BVwXPmhAsc

Beautiful, but keep kids away from top of the falls. Best views in Winter

Absolutely beautiful! Once you get to the bridge, you can go up for a easier field hike, or go down and hike the creek bottom. The perfect go-to for a couple hours of peace.

The water levels were higher than normal, so the falls were amazing, especially making the scramble to the bottom of the falls for the best view. Was definitely slick and a technical ascent/descent.

Close enough to Lexington to get hiking in, see waterfalls and explore. The trail to lower waterfalls near river could be marked better.

We went with our dogs yesterday and it was great! There are a few different trails and we chose the one down to the waterfall and cave. It was very beautiful because we have had a lot of water recently. The path is very narrow, so keep that in mind when bringing dogs or children. It is pretty steep and we were afraid our dogs would pull us down at times. That said, it was a good short hike. We can’t wait to go back!
