A great evening or morning hike. it is grown up in places as of 06/27/16 but all and all a good little hike.

Perfect in early spring when the wildflowers blanket the forest floor. Can be a bit overgrown in late spring/early summer.

Had a wonderful hike on this trail. It had great views and provided plenty of exercise if that's what you want. It is a very narrow trail with embedded rocks in areas and some very steep drop-offs. Not for the faint of heart. No way could or would one want to take a stroller. I think the gentleman was referring to the Songbird Trail on the other side of the river. This is definitely not a greenway. One of the more challenging trails I have hiked. The wildflowers were fantastic.

I had a very nice hike on a very warm December day. The trail is in good shape, and not very difficult. There were good views of the river and the dam with all of the leaves off of the trees.

Great but narrow in spots. Needs some trimming done. Nice views.

Not strenuous, but also definitely not what the casual hiker would consider easy. Take the lower fork first and hike up so that you are hiking downhill on much of the way back. One member mentioned taking a stroller on this trail, and I see absolutely no way this would be physically possible unless one was highly physically fit and able to carry the stroller on much of the trail. We saw many interesting and unusual plants and wildflowers along the hike.

Nice Family trail along river. Loops lower than back upper or reverse.

Nice, easy walk (not a hike) along the river below Norris Dam. I would consider this more of a greenway than a trail. People even had strollers.

Awesome easy trail with plenty to look at. Not a high traffic area so you get the time alone in the forest you are looking for. Not along hike, but well worth it. My dog loved playing around in the leaves.

This was a very nice experience. I had never hiked in the fall before and enjoyed the sounds that accompanied it. There are several great views along the way. The only things that I didn't like were the several trees covered in carvings and the sounds of vehicles.

Nice easy trail to run or walk, we have done both info below based on run. Great scenic views below the dam of the river. Flowers season brings more people to the trail given how flat the lower part is. We are pretty active people to say it is easy, if you find you do no want a challenge stick to the left on the split for a maybe two mile out and back along the river. Going the whole loop one of two ways, three miles or so, There is more of a challenge that the flat outnand back if you take the bluff or the right split on your way out and it would be most challenging and elevation gain per foot to take the loop/bluff left of the split.
