Tioga Falls, located on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, is a 130-foot high double cascade flowing down the side of Muldraugh Hill. At the top of the falls is the former site of the historic Tioga Falls Hotel, which was a popular retreat for wealthy southerners trying to escape the deep-south malaria epidemics in the 1800s. All that remains of the hotel now are remnants of a dam at the falls created to provide a swimming pool for hotel guests. The falls is reached by hiking one mile along a trail that follows a portion of the old Louisville & Nashville Turnpike, completed in 1838, that was the major north-south route for this area.
