This upland woodland trail of moderate difficulty is filled with diverse plant life including ferns, wildflowers, mosses, shrubs, and native trees. The half-mile trail crosses a 40-foot cascading waterfall. You can experience an abundance of wildlife, including deer, turkey, upland birds, reptiles, amphibians, and other animals that live in streams.
The Fairmount Falls trail is a very short woodland hike, but it offers a one-of-kind view within a Louisville Metro Park. Hikers will find a 70-foot woodland waterfall that, with care, they can walk across at the top. When the water is flowing, great views can be seen from the trail that approaches from the parking area. Hikers who want a longer trek can hike a short in-and-out trail that extends past the waterfall.
