Will be a great hike when there is more water! But it's not a difficult hike at all! Good hike to take a dog on!

Really short and easy. Mostly sand the whole way. The waterfall is pretty nonexistent right now. More a long walk then a hike.

Wonderful little trip. Very easy trail with a lovely waterfall to cap it off. This time of year there isn't much water.

Very pretty, east trail. The falls didn't have much water but it was still a nice quick walk.

Nice little trail. When the water isn't too high the waterfall is fun go climb up.

Located within Cherokee National Forest in Chilhowee Recreation Area the Benton falls trail is Rated Moderate kid
friendley and marked with a blue blaze the trail is 3.2 mile round trip.crossing the earthwork dam which creates
McCamy Lake, then crossing into a nice shade of large hardwoods and pines Benton Falls is a 65'water fall that is
well worth the hike. I think its one of the nicest day hikes around the area. I just hiked the trail last week I have pics on my google + if you want to check them out.

Took the church youth group on this trail from our campground at Chilhowee. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the walk and the falls.

Don't let GPS take you down the dirt road unless you're driving an off road vehicle! It was terrifying with steep drops and an up hill ride with sharp curves and the road is rough rock. Other than that, it was beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Followed advice and went early. Based on previous comments, expected to see an Indian on the side of the trail crying...but saw no trash. Because of lack of rain in the area, falls not at full force, but beautiful and worth the walk.

Pretty level sandy trail that leads to some lovely stone steps down to the base of this beautiful waterfall that is totally approachable. Plenty of large rocks to perch or rest on, and in my daughter's case play on.

Easy trail, but go early in the morning before everyone goes! Because it is so easy it appears that too many disrespectful people go there. There is a lot more trash along this trail!
