There are many waterfall trails in the Bluegrass; some of them are easy to reach, while others are hidden deep in the woods and off-trail. Most of the cascades in our state are beautiful, but not very big. But we do have some falls that crash down from 60, 80, and even over 100 feet. If you’d like to see some of the tallest waterfalls in Kentucky, take this road trip to six scenic spots that are truly impressive, especially in the right weather conditions after a rainfall.
