We've had a very dry summer so on the early sept day I went there was no fall. Just the same, a beautiful area an dI will return when the water is up. Makes for a cool swimming hole either way.
The falls here are AWESOME!!! Don't overlook it because it is so short, you will seriously miss out!!! My wife and I swam in the falls for several hours. The water is super clean and fresh, the scenery is stunning, the people were awesome, and besides all that, if you want to make the hiking longer, there are several trails that can stretch it all the way out to a 26 mile out and back if that is your fancy. DON"T MISS IT!!!
great trail runs into others so you can make a good hike out of it
This is a very short and steep trail. When we went it was so hot and muggy that you could feel the cool air while hiking down. Everything is beautiful here.
Beautiful scenery and fairly easy hike to the falls. You have to be very careful of your footing because of the roots and rocks. The falls were gorgeous and the water was clear and cool, perfect for a swim after a hike. The hike back out of the gorge is tiring because of the steepness and the rocks but is beautiful the whole way.
I've seen 19 waterfalls in tennesse this year my goal is 75 this summer .. I rate this park and falls number 1 so far for the trails and falls .. See a lot of family's on the trails but to get to the base of falls u have to climb down a rock wall .. They also have a camp ground ..
So beautiful!! We swam in the gorge and then hiked the rest of the trail. It is pretty rocky and steep sometimes but worth it!
The first half of the trail is rocky & you cross a swinging bridge but the last half is an easy trail. The Falls are beautiful.
Not as difficult as billed. You can get a little winded climbing back up, but I would rate the trail as moderate at worst.
The Falls are definitely worth any exertion needed to see from below.
Beautiful easy hike. Lots of running water.
Great views!! Perfect pics. FYI directions for GPS are incorrect! Follow signs for foster falls and you will be ok. The hike starts out with a steel decent but finishes with an easy accent. We started out going left from the falls and hiked down to the base of the falls then followed the climbers loop. A lot of great pics from all angels of the falls.
This loop has been a family favorite since before we were married. Even when we just go to hike its beautiful, the climbers are generally nice and now the kids love to watch them.
This is my favorite waterfall in Tennessee. Very short but difficult walk will get you to the most beautiful fall you can imagine. Walk a little further and see dozens of rock climbers.

We never tire of this beautiful place! It is one of our favorite places to hike.
