Well traveled moderate trail with a couple of difficult areas. Scenery is beautiful. The signage says it's 2.5 miles but 3 miles would be more accurate. All of my group compared distance and we figured we had hiked 6 miles out and back.
Great to have for information on trails
Falls are beautiful and great place to eat lunch. Water is cold, even in July. So. Many. People. There was also a lot of trash in the water around the falls. Otherwise the trail has lots of sun exposed areas but some really pretty wild flowers.
A very popular hike to a pretty waterfall. Fortunately there is lots of room to park at the trailhead. The round trip to the falls is just over five miles. Hopefully I can complete the full 8.4 miles out and back on my next trip. I love the Cades Cove area of GSMNP.
Really nice hike. Several foot bridges, alot of ups and downs, roots, rocks but that's nature and isn't that what we go for? Nice waterfall, and large area to sit and enjoy it. I'd recommend bringing your lunch and plenty of water.
