Had great hike from this trail head on a couple of the trails that intersect this main trail. The Rail Bed trail is very hard being on the old rail bed, the rocks used for the bed are larger than modern railroad rocks and very treacherous to traverse after the rain the day before. We hiked 3/4 of the trail and picked up the Fagan Springs trail and found the spring. It was cold and clear. Very refreshing. We made our way down the mountain on the Alms House trail and found the foundation next to a creek. We began exploring for the caves when the weather changed for the worst, with a menacing sounding thunder storm coming up on the opposite side of the mountain from us. It was a fast ascent through the trail system to get back to the Trail Head that was very changing. My only negative would be that the falls and creek were mostly dry this time of year.

Had a great hike on this trail. Very easy to traverse. Lots of over looks and rest sites. My only negative would be the amount of foliage at the over looks obstructing the view. Will defiantly go back in the late fall or winter to get the "Big Picture". Also came up on a downed power line at the 2.5 mile marker. A storm the night before blew a tree down on it. Was lucky to see it in time. I notified the park rangers and it was taken care of by the power company.

It was an ok trail. It was wide and even and mostly on the shade, so that was nice. But it definitely wasn't a loop and you could hear road noise for the majority if the tail.

Directions put me on Smith Lake dam Rd and had my road location on the road just about 1/10th of a mile from the boat launch. On one side was a chained off dirt road access that was clearly marked Private Property on the opposite side of the road was another chained off dirt road access to a radio tower. It was labeled tower access road and no "No Trespassing sign was noted & the pin marker was located on that side of the road. We went down the road till we were 90deg parallel with Pin marker so we went off trail to see if we could get to the pin marker and we did make it to the marker but were not on any type of trail. The description on this states it is a paved path. Either the GPS coord's are off or? On the way back out we saw a No Tresspassing sign laying on the ground just inside the gated entrance - so am assuming I shouldn't have even been on that site.

Love this place, but there has been more and more trash being left behind. I was take a trash bag and gather up trash from the trail. They have trash cans at the entrance and down by the creek.

Stunned. Ready to make plans for an overnight trip! Took it very slow going in around 7:30, hung around the trail end for a few hours, cooled down with a swim, and hiked back up and out surprisingly quicker than I expected. Pack was heavy with water but proved to be the right choice. Super stoked about returning when the leaves fall to expand the views.

Today was our first time on the NP trail. The hike was good but the highlight was when a small fawn, about 18"H×18"L came right up to me and sniffed my leg. I've never had that experience before, at least not in the wild. we will definitely be back!
