We were blessed to have this beautiful day in February, so hiking just seemed to be the thing to do. After a beautiful drive through the mountains we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the falls. Ice and snow had formed around the base and glorious blues and whites filled the basin area. Long icicles hung from every ledge, with... More

This was worth the hike. It was beautiful and awesome to see how people lived there. It reminded me of a mini Mesa Verde. I would love to go back.

We went Cumberland Falls and to Yahoo Falls for part of my 30th birthday celebration. We went with a 20 month old (carried in a child carrier backpack) and a 3 year old. This is a short trail but there were a couple of slippery areas on the trail so be careful and wear appropriate shoes! No flip flops. My... More

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
