Waterfallin on Wednesday at Eagle Falls! 💦 Eagle Falls 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. (at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park)
