We went on a Saturday. There is a bathroom facility. they are places to have a picnic lunch. go after there is a good rain. we had a small trickle of water. The walk to the arches is great place to hike. take your camera. there is around 160 steps going down to the falls!! take plenty of water.

Driving south on US 27 I see a sign for "Yahoo Falls Scenic Area" and have to check it out. I mean Yahoo Falls - is just one of those places calling out to you screaming - "Hey, drive on out here and check it out." or something like that. Heading west on Kentucky 700, about 4-5 miles off the... More

Yahoo falls was absolutely beautiful! While walking down to the falls it felt like we were in a different country or in the Amazon. Breath taking views! You can walk off trail & you find yourself walking thru boulders & caverns.You can walk down to the bottom of the water fall. It was the best experience on our family trip... More

Nature at its best! I've had to go back again. Getting there is a good little hike. Coming back the same way was hard as we were going up hill. The second time I followed the trail to the end. I would do it again!

After driving through the hills and back roads for a while we finally made it the the trailhead for Yahoo Falls. The hike was amazing, walking below huge Cliffs and shear rock to the base of the waterfall. The flow wasn't much but it was still an impressive drop and being able to walk behind the falls and sit on... More

Yahoo Falls is a beautiful waterfall that you can get in and crawl behind. The hike to the falls was not bad. The falls at the end of the trail are definitely worth it. When we went, we were alone with the falls. Great photographic opportunities and awesome to be able to get so close to a waterfall, without fearing... More

Very basic hike to the falls. We opted to not go down to the foot of it. The trail continues to where you can stand on top of the falls (there is a caution sign to not jump). The trails are not kept up very well; there were a lot of trees fallen on them. There does seem to be... More

If you are any were within a day's drive I would try to go here. One of the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Word can't describe and picture don't do it justice.

Small volume, but worth the drive and short hike. The drive is on a very small two lane road, don't give up.

Beautiful place to visit. I wish we had more time to visit. Cumberland falls is still my favorite but it's getting more competition.
