Our First Trip to Yahoo Falls

Betsy at Yahoo Falls, June 3, 2006.

I’ve mentioned several times that Betsy and I collect waterfalls. We currently have 278 different waterfalls in our collection, and we try to plan our travels so that we visit a new waterfall on each trip. But we also go back to visit favorites when we can.

Most of the waterfalls we’ve visited have been here fairly close to the Glade. One waterfall that we’ve visited several times is Yahoo Falls, in the Big South Fork National Recreation Area near Whitley City, Kentucky. We first visited Yahoo Falls in 2006.

The National Park Service claims Yahoo Falls is Kentucky’s highest. There is more water going over in the late winter and spring than at other times of the year, but Yahoo Falls is still pretty any time of the year.

The trail to the falls from the parking is about a mile long and is very pretty. You can walk right up to the base of the falls and even behind the falls. The trails go up around the top of the falls, but the views from the top are not very good. There is a trail from the falls to Yahoo Arch, which is also quite interesting.
