Located just over a mile from the nearest trailhead, Dog Slaughter Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

That’s actually a high honor, because there are a lot of waterfalls to choose from within the national forest. But it’s not an exaggerated honor. Dog Slaughter Falls is stunning, despite its morbid name.

The fourth hike of the Twenty Week Hiking Challenge visits Dog Slaughter Falls, and the greatest thing about this hike is that — unlike some trails that offer a mundane hike to reach a picturesque feature at the end — getting to the waterfall is half the fun.

The trail to Dog Slaughter Falls travels along Dog Slaughter Creek, an absolutely stunning mountain stream that empties into the Cumberland River just beyond the waterfall. The hike is a gorgeous stroll through nature, the trail meandering through a hemlock and rhododendron forest for the entirety of its route.
