It's not a bad trail. I'd skip upper falls, and just do the lower fall and loop. Some switch backs, not the best marked trail, but you find your way.
I do it 1-2x a year.
My very first hike which started it all. Back around Fall of 2013 so this one is pretty special to me.
Fun trail. Does get very muddy during wet weather. The view from the upper falls is limited but still beautiful.
This trail is not well maintained. It's full of washouts. In addition if you go when there has been a drought there isn't much water to see at the upper or lower falls. The trail itself doesn't have very good views.
This was a nice easy walk out to the upper falls and back. Watch your footing, it'd be easy to fall or twist an ankle if you're not careful. I took my dog out with me and we came across 6 dogs or so- they were all on a leash, so everyone seems to be pretty good about keeping them nearby (awesome).
Have hiked this trail many times. Great views, falls and you can even eat blueberries along the way. Great in fall for fall colors.
Beautiful trail especially in the fall.
A very popular hiking spot on the Parkway (mile 418.8). Definitely better to visit on a weekday and early if possible. This is one of the best spots for fall color, and it is a unique hike for the area. The full loop in the relatively flat valley is just over three miles and includes two pretty waterfalls. The surrounding peaks also offer several wonderful trails, with the Black Balsam area and its spectacular mountain balds being another highlight. I can't wait to get back!
