We loved this place! The trails were great and they were marked well. Although most of the hike was fairly easy there were several challenging places. The couple that own the property was super friendly and very helpful. And there were also rest stops along the trails with a picnic tables, garbage cans, and clean restrooms. We will definitely be back!

What a wonderful place!

We spent a perfect Autumn Saturday at Cane Creek Canyon. Kids loved it! Dog liked it for the most part!

So impressed with the trail, but also with the hosts! They go out of their way to insure everyone has a positive experience. There are large coolers of ice water located throughout the trail. They offer hiking sticks and give plenty of advice and ideas about trails to try. Highly recommend!

This is a fabulous hiking area. The landowners are incredibly kind and generous. There were several restrooms stationed along the trails as well as coolers of water. The view from the point is just as good, if not better, than some of the views I've had from cabins in Gatlinburg. The trail is pretty steep in some areas.

Super well-maintained with useful maps provided! Do plan to return.

Note: if following the address provided on the website (251 Loop Road), it will take you to the wrong place, as there are two Loop Roads in Colbert Heights. Download the AllTrails app and get directions from Google maps.

Wonderful well-maintained trails with maps provided and access to bathrooms and water throughout. the trails are clearly marked, which helps since there's so many options.

Note: if you put 251 Loop Road into Google Maps, it will take you to the wrong place as there are two Loop Roads in Colbert Heights. You're looking for the one off of Frankfort Road/CR65.

This place was so pretty. So much to see and explore. You can cool off in the creek so bring a change of clothes or a towel to dry off. of portions of the trail are a little hard, but it was a blast.
