We hiked the Cumberland Trails for quite a while and it's an interesting set of trails. The facilities are clean the people are friendly and the general area is a good hike. Having said that, they've recently updated some of the trails. I guess because...More

This park is so pretty. Was very quiet and peaceful. Got to see deer and the park officer was very friendly!! There is a general store that is convenient and friendly.

We visited on 11/01/17. The Fall foliage was still pretty. We did not go to the bottom of the falls, but the overlook was beautiful. Not a bad hike at all for two, out of shape 50 year olds.

We go to the park late Saturday afternoon, hiked to the overlook, then down to the actual falls. It is a very long walk, but the falls rest between two high rock cliffs, so it's definitely worth the trek. We got up on Sunday and...More

We were here for the eclipse and this place really went all out from camping to free glasses, the water fall was great and the safe ark was wonderful. L

The average person can get to the falls in 45-60 minutes but it will take longer to get back traveling up hill.
