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.
Known as the Niagara of the South, Cumberland Falls attracts outdoor enthusiasts and the curious each year. The reason being is that it offers a phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. The 125 ft waterfall displays a moonbow at night during a full moon that is truly a sight to see. While spectacular, the moonbow isn't nearly all that Cumberland Falls has to offer. Horseback riding, 17 miles of hiking trails, and opportunities for paddling and fishing on the Cumberland River.
