I took my dog on this trail this morning and it was very pretty. Fern bridge was beautiful. Carter Caves has a lot of parking and the employees at the welcome center were very friendly.

Absolutely gorgeous. Raven bridge is a bit disappointing, but the other two will not disappoint. Took our chocolate lab for the hike and he had a great time

This trail is not what I'd refer to as Easy. Some truly daunting areas and the Fern bridge is in disrepair. The difficulty makes it the almost perfect trail. Beginning is a bit boring but once you get through it the rest is worth the wait.

We did this as a family hike and it was great! We are introducing hiking to the kids as a family activity. This was a great trail because there was so much to see. It was a bit much for our 5 year old, so he rode in his lilebaby carryon for about 1/3 of the trail to rest his legs. Be prepared for lots of hills and like the previous reviewer said, pack a lunch. It took us about 4 hours with lots of stops and lunch. This trail is way too pretty to chug through without stopping to enjoy the scenery. The trail was very well marked and east to follow.

Absolutely breathtaking scenery, and some moderately difficult bits. Deviating from the trail to climb the muddy hillside for an up close view of Raven Bridge was worthwhile. We got a little confused and thought we missed Smoky Bridge somehow (it is verging on impossible to miss) so we backtracked a quarter mile or so and extended our hike. Very rewarding and worthwhile trail, and it is well-marked.
