The absolutely best maintained trail within 100 miles of Chattanooga. The trail is always clear with wide well marked signs everywhere. Its like I was atop Lookout Mtn there are almost as many directional signs as there are Rock City / Ruby Falls signs on Lookout. If you been there you copy
And there's a waterfall and a gulch bluff on the Day Loop. Legend has it that if you follow the creek to where it disapears into the ground and follow the dry creek bed till the water pops out of the earth you come upon a bluehole with a subteranian cave with a cavern.
did this gem today the falls were roaring. great hike easy and level most of the way. highly recommend
Well maintained trails and easy hike. The Falls were all dry this time. Very peaceful and beautiful.

Plan to hike this trail again tomorrow. Great day hike. I would rate as moderate due to terrain. It's easy as long as you take note of the ground below your feet.
Great trail. I would rate it more medium than easy. Lots of hiking up and down hills, and stepping over tree roots and rocks. Mostly wooded. Only a couple glimpses of an overlook.
Great easy mostly level hike, pretty surroundings, great view at bluff, waterfall you can splash at. Loved all the suspended bridges, great for dog. Enjoyed it very much. I had only wished it was a longer with other views without taking on North Rim.
Great, short hike. We did the loop counter clockwise as some others have suggested on here. The overlook to the falls isn't easily seen so I would skip that in the summertime. I'm sure fall would be a better time. The falls were very pretty. We did see a water snake though so be careful.
