Located in Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area. The Kentucky portion is a part of the Daniel Boone National Forest. Yahoo Falls is Kentucky's tallest fall and best seen after some rain has fallen. There are multiple routes to get to the falls but with little ones we took the trail that starts close to the overlook. Gently winding through the woods, this trail is beautiful and offers some incredible views of the falls from above, small stream crossings, and rock bluffs.
There are a couple areas where the trail gets a little unclear among the lower stream and rock outcroppings, but if you are up for a little adventure, you will find your way. We fortunately didn't run into any snakes or ticks on our little adventure.
Once you get to the lower section of the falls, you will be glad you made the journey. Under the falls is one of the largest rock overhangs in the South East. Photos can't do justice to the overall scale of the cave behind the 130 foot drop of these falls, almost as tall as Niagara but with a slightly less water. We explored the bottom of the falls for a bit before taking the very steep steel steps to return to where we started our journey. If like us, you enjoy waterfalls, I would highly recommend putting this one on your list.
