Wooded trail, high train trestles, 130 ft waterfall.

Very nice hike through a hardwood forest. About 1/3 of a mile from the trailhead, the trail splits to form the loop. I recommend taking the left trail first, which will get the climb over with so that it is all downhill from there. This loop trail passes by 2 large train trestles that are still operational, but please stay off of the tracks. You will soon pass by an old set of stone steps, these steps lead downhill to remnents of an old spring house near the creek below. This was used as a stopping place for carriages in the 19th century.

After about a mile you will come to the Tioga Falls, which is actually a series of falls, or even a cascade if the water flow is light. From top to bottom, the Falls are about 130 feet high. At this point the trail turns and loops back to the trailhead. The lower portion of the loop follows Tioga Creek, for approximately 1/2 mile. The trail soon reconnects, leading back to the parking area.

From I-65, take the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) West exit. Continue west on the Gene Snyder Freeway for approximately 10 miles, and turn left (south) onto 31W. Continue south on 31W for about 8 miles, then turn left at the sign for "Bridges to the Past". Follow this road to the parking lot.

As of may 19th, closed for Blasting (?). I drove the extra 45 south from my already 2 hour drive to Louisville to see the falls. Epic fail and disappointment to learn it was closed.
