Nice hike. Pretty much all uphill but the scenic bird's eye view at the top is the reward for your efforts.
I've heard people say you can see the downtown Lexington skyline from the cliff, but I've hiked this trail twice and couldn't see it either time.

Excellent hiking, plenty of deer habitat. Trails are frequently extremely muddy at times and old hiking shoes are recommended.

This is not a hard up constant up and down hike. The trail follows the stream most of the way. We were able to walk down to and behind the water fall. Bring a camera. There will be a lot of opportunities for great pics.

The location is incorrect. We followed the directions given, found no trail nor road that lead to the red marker. We were disappointed that this trail is not in Richmond, KY.

We did 3.5 miles from Cumberland Falls to Dogslaughter falls. First mile or rocky with stairs ... then levels out some. Very scenic.

Lake Cumberland Trail

Today, I was out driving around with my hubby, Tony and daughter, Noel. We even took her baby, Sammy ( her doggie) with us. We had stopped earlier at Rockhouse Natural Arch in Creelsboro, and followed route 55 to 127 to get back into Tennessee.
We came upon the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park and followed the signs into the park 6 miles to the State Dock. This lake is huge and it was so dag on busy..but from the overlook perch it was awesome to view.

It looks like they had a speed boat race yesterday because they were pulling several out of the water and towing out of the park. I would love to back here and watch a speedboat race, that would be so fascinating.
This is a lovely park with camping, cottage rental, a swimming pool, putt putt, several lodges, tennis courts, playgrounds and picnic areas..Very nice park and free to explore the many hiking trails.

Great day hike! The Arch is beautiful. Most of the 508 loop is a nice hike, but when it converges with the gravel road it gets muddy and rutted up. Otherwise, it's a relaxing hike.

Have I mentioned I love Red River Gorge? I always hike double arch, auxier and courthouse rock. Map says 7 miles....but...it's really closer to 10. Great views, some steep inclines, and as always, rock ledges so no small kids! Always bring snacks and waters.

Love this trail, love the Gorge when I need to 'get away from it all'. Never gets boring, and I always feel refreshed and worked out at the end of the day.

Hiked from Piney grove side to Pulaski park. Little grown up in the middle but my son liked the bridge. Over all not a bad trip.
