Easily hiked. Pretty surroundings. Not as large as Cumberland Falls but the experience is 100 times better.

Yahoo falls is a must see if you're in the area . It's about 1.5 mile hike . It is one of the highest falls of the area. It was so pretty and not a really rugged hike. It did have a lot of steps to climb at the end but it was worth it.

I am a huge waterfall fan ~ huge. I find waterfalls and drag my friends, family and man into the woods, off the beaten path and into canyons we surely have no business being in without a rope. Yahoo Falls I could visit again and again. What a surprising beauty! 113 feet tall and starts out as just this little... More

Such an easy short hike into the falls. Take the time to climb down underneath, you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I went to the falls on a side trip. The road coming in was a bit rough. The park needed a lot of work. The trail did as well. It was an enjoyable hike but the trail would go off in several directions and we had to double back because we lost the trail. The falls are... More

At the north end of the park, the first big site is Yahoo Falls. To get there, you have to leave the comforts of Route 27 onto a smaller road, then suffer the final mile or two on a gravel road to a fairly sizable parking lot (and actual bathrooms!) Avoid the temptation to leave your car quickly and stumble... More

Beautiful waterfall, largest in Kentucky. Its about a quarter mile from the parking area and about 160 steps down to the lower part of the falls. Best after it has rained.
