Eagle Falls is located in Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in McCreary County, Kentucky. Water from Eagle Creek descends 44 feet before landing on the rocks below on the Cumberland River shoreline. This trail is 1.5 miles and is the only trail leading to Eagle Falls. Hikers follow the cliff line for much of the trail to one of the best views of Cumberland Falls. After crossing a seasonal stream, Trail 9 becomes a loop and a spur will take you to the river. The lower section of trail may be under water during high water and the latter section of the trail is rugged. This is considered a strenuous trail, but the view is worth it.
Directions from Parkers Lake, Ky, traveling North on US-27. Take a right on Highway 90. Eagle Falls Trailhead will be approximately 11 miles on the left. The trailhead is just a small gravel area, right before you cross the Gatliff Bridge (Cumberland Falls Bridge).
