If you like streams, wildflowers, lush forests, and a longer hike, this is about as good as it gets in the Smokies. In wet weather some of the creek crossings can be a little tricky and require wading. Creek crossings aside, this isn't the most pleasant trail to hike in the rain. The upper section is heavily overgrown with dog hobble. The wet foliage constantly brushing against hikers can be irritating.
