Added by Jenn Gonzalez

A quick and easy hike to a picturesque 25 foot waterfall.

The trail to Honeymoon Falls is located in Pine Mountain State Resort Park in Pineville, Kentucky. To reach the trail park in the parking lot in front of the park lodge.  Walk towards the lodge and you'll see signs pointing you in the direction of the trails. It is located just behind the lodge.

As you wind your way through the rhododendrons and rock formations you'll follow a small creek.  When you reach a road make a left and follow the road for a short time. You'll soon see the sign to continue on to Honeymoon Falls.

Once you reach the falls there is room to crawl behind the falls or stick your feet in the water. It is a perfect spot for lunch or snacks.  Then make the return trip on the same path to go back to the parking lot.

Reviews

This is a great little hike! And during the right time of year (or after a good rain) the falls can be quite impressive. I've been there in July though when it was barely a trickle. You're never far from the resort on this hike, and if I remember correctly you have to cross over a service road. But, for a one-water-bottle hike, it's totally worth it.
