Hike to Yahoo Falls with ranger this weekend

ONEIDA, Tenn. (AP) — People who want to learn more about the natural and geological features of Big South Fork can take part in a ranger-led interpretive hike to Yahoo Falls at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area this weekend.

The 113-foot-tall Yahoo Falls is Kentucky’s tallest waterfall. The hike will also feature a large rock cave and towering sandstone cliffs.

Ranger Karen Thompson will lead the one-hour hike on Sunday. It starts at 11 a.m. EDT at the Yahoo Falls parking area near Whitley City, Kentucky.

The hike is free. The park advises wearing weather-appropriate clothing and shoes. The trail includes a long set of stairs and is considered moderately difficult.
