Nice trail. I will definitely return after a good rain.

Great beginner trail for biking loved the views during fall the dam bridge is a little tricky to bike across but not that hard only a one person bridge but overall great trail

Beautiful view! Trail is well marked and maintained

Easy and fun hike. A short loop with an even shorter spur. Take the spur for a nice view of Holsten lake. I went during early fall so I couldn't see through the trees. Probably best views in winter and spring/ after leaves fall.

The Falls are very pretty even with the drought. There are no real clear markings of the trail head or even on the trail. We took trail 88, I think. It's left of the parking if you are facing the falls. It leads up above the falls and along the water so there are many small cascades to see and take a break. Not sure on the actual distance of the trail, one source say 1.5 mi, others 8 mi or 5 mi. We just went until the kids got tired. By the way, there's no bathrooms or anything at parking, just FYI. The drive is pretty short and easy leading to the parking lot from Tellico Plains. Have fun!

Wonderful little trip. Very easy trail with a lovely waterfall to cap it off. This time of year there isn't much water.

This was a great trail - one of the best in the area for us with our two dogs. We took the left trail at the fork and would recommend that route. At about 1.5 miles you'll be at the first waterfall. We then continued along the trail slightly more than a mile until we reached the second waterfall. This is not an easy trail; the moderate rating is correct. The description says 3.6 miles but our apps showed a distance closer to 4.5 miles. We plan to return again!

A great alternative to hiking the Smokies if you prefer less crowds!

The trail was pretty confusing, but we figured it out. The far falls was fun to swim in.

Very pretty, east trail. The falls didn't have much water but it was still a nice quick walk.

Nice trail, rocky, have to at points make your own path. I love this trail. Beautiful and fun to be creative and climb rocks.

It was just like taking a walk in a little wooded area and then some of it is wide open. If you are looking for easy with kids or just a little exercise then this is great. Not what I call hiking though.

very very steep hike even though it's short so keep your footing, but the views at the top are nothing short of incredible!

Amazing. Crystal clear water. Some nice ledges. Love it
