Great for the family. Need to come back when the flowering trees are blooming, lots of rhododendron along the trail. Would also be nice in the spring with all the little creeks feeding the main river.

This is a lovely, fairly easy trail for anyone looking for a nice walk in the forest. I absolutely adore it.

One of the many trails that is part of the Tanasi Trail System. You access the trailhead by crossing the suspension bridge next to the Ocoee Whitewater Center. Parking costs $3 per day. The trail is overall easy, however there are elevation changes. Mostly climb uphill half way (regardless of which direction you take the loop) and downhill the second half. You can hear the river most of the trail but really had few views of it. Not a bad hike by itself, or use it as access to one of several other trails that are part of the system.

I really liked the beauty of this trail. I'm not as in shape as I'd like to be, so it was difficult for me but still worth it. I had to stop a lot on the way, there wasn't any where to sit so I had to sit right on the ground in the middle of the path. That wasn't safe cause bikers and other hikers was also going up and down the trail. If there was anything I'd want different it would be rest spots.

The greatest run I have ever run.

The River View Trail offers a nice escape from the main trails that are on the Tanasi Trail System (a group of 20+ miles of trails). While the trees were not quite as enormous, the entire area had a feel similar to the Ewok Forest and since I was hiking solo, I was hoping that if I had to run into some kind of woodland critter, itd be something more like this guy than one of the brown bears that are occasionally spotted in the area.
