Return To Eagle Falls

If planning to visit on the weekend, make sure to arrive early, as parking is limited to approximately 15 spaces. There are no restrooms or water fountains on the trail, though you will encounter some excellent views of Cumberland Falls, from points both elevated and at water level.

Note: if you’re interested in hiking this trail, plan to arrive early to secure one of only approx. 15 parking spaces. And, don’t forget your camera!

Sights To See

There are many points of interest to enjoy while hiking Eagle Falls Trail, including:

At one point along my hike, I followed a side trail away from the river and into the forest. When I emerged, it was as if I had stepped back in time – into a ghost town

Back To The Water

Exiting the forest, I returned back to the river which was lined with many large boulders. Rather than rush to get to the waterfall, I enjoyed the scenery for a spell before continuing on my trek…
