There are two options near the park visitor center. The Blue Blazes Whiskey Still Trail is an easy .6 mile hike. It follows Blue Blazes Run and turns around at the replica whiskey still. Along the way children can peer into the water and look for aquatic species.
The Falls Nature Trail is a moderate, rocky trail that is 2.8 miles in length. The trail covers varied terrain with both uphill and downhill sections. Be careful as you cross over Route 77 into the state park. Next to the handicapped parking lot you will find a wooden boardwalk. Walk along that boardwalk until you see Cunningham Falls. Hiking time is usually 1.5 to 2 hours.
