This trail descends through old growth Douglas–fir. Hikers will reach Upper Kentucky Falls after 0.8 miles. In another 1.4 miles, the trail ends at an observation deck overlooking Lower Kentucky Falls, an incredible 100 foot twin falls at the confluence of Kentucky Creek & Smith River. Here the trail meets the North Fork Smith River Trail.
