Wonderful Hike! Me and my dog Rudder really enjoyed this place. Very dog friendly and he loved the freedom without a leash! I will be back with my son!

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.

Absolutely beautiful trail. Hiked most of the trail in just a few hours. There is one beautiful overlook called "The Point" and an incredible waterfall that is a stunning cliff that seems to come out of nowhere! It's massive and you can hike all the way down it and in it too! Both of these spots are near the beginning of the trail. Make sure you take the "steep trail" if you're agile! It's a lot of fun! As you hike in, you parallel a creek with some beautiful resting spots and rock formations. We didn't make it all the way to Devil's Hollow but we'll definitely be coming back soon!

*Note: the whole place is privately owned and the owners have gone above and beyond to groom the trails, provide rest areas with fresh water every mile or so and restrooms! They're are incredibly nice, professional, and hospitable.

***lastly, the All Trails map leads you to James Road. Don't turn down that road, just continue on Loop Rd about a half mile past James road and it'll be on your right! There's a sign and you can't miss it!***
