trail is long, difficult and sometimes dangerous. but, has some spectacular views. the big fire of 2016 burned some areas on the trail. some of the rocks was weakened from the fire. there are areas with holes and very unstable rocks along the burn areas. climbing the rocks for pictures can result in falls. the US 441 side is nearly vertical for over 500 feet, making for great pictures but potentially dangerous falls. once you pass the Rough Creek trail connection, the trail is uneventful. I do recommend this trail but only with extreme caution in the burn areas.

Started at the South end . Was a great trail with wonderful views. Down hill almost all the way, except for a semi steep area around the North End. Trail is about 12.2 miles. I will do it again!

Hiked it from Fighting Creek Gap road to intersection with Husky Gap. Was hiking with my 10 year old twins and my seven year old. Perfect trail for them. Enough up and down so no one got too cranky. A few nice views but really nice change of surroundings along trail.

Nice hike, can be hard on the knees downhill. Some sketchy areas in the burn area, very narrow trail in places but beautiful ridgeline views of Mt LeConte and Thunderhead. Overgrown in places, lots of signs of wildlife.

I walked the trail from Huskey gap uphill. Good easy going up over a long range of time. Did some bushwhacking near the old burn area and one blow down almost made it impossible. A little more care for the trail and I would recommend it but not until then because of the sheer drop off if a miss step.

Did the upper portion as an out and back—had it all to myself. Did the bottom section as part of an overnight backpack. The fire in 2016 drastically changed the feel of the trail—less shade, hotter—made it more work even heading downhill all afternoon. Some great views along the way. Be sure to have water—not many springs along the way.

Completed this hike right after Christmas 2017. Some places were a little slick from ice and snow but the trail was still passable. The views were incredible. Definitely will hike this one again.

The wife and I had an awesome day! incredible views. Stumbled upon this trail after being very disappointed that the Road to the Alum Cave trail was closed due to ice and snow... we know a little bit about driving in snow... we are from Buffalo, NY and I laughed at the park ranger... we were still not allowed through so we went for a drive and found this gem! the trail was very challenging at times. Started at laurel falls trail at first light. we climbed all the way up and back... the last incline on the way back, about 1.5 miles away from parking lot was a killer after a full day of hiking... well worth the effort!!

First the hike is actually 23 miles, not 11 ... if you don’t want to end up like me hiking after sunset for 2 hours start the hike early. Some up and down lots of flat parts too. The first 2/3 of this hike is totally worth it, awesome views and nice area to picnic. The last third has really little interest no view at all and gets way colder up there. Bring at least 3l of water and lots of snack !

Treated this point to point as an out and back (from bottom). I also added Clingman's Dome (which I wouldn't suggest). Round trip totaled ~32 miles, my GPS died and the final 5 miles were less fun in the dark, but the 13 hour day was quite enjoyable nonetheless. After 5 miles, from start, the burn areas provide great views down the pitch of each side. Be careful, there's plenty of rubble, deadfall, and soon to be deadfall as well.

Absolutely a beautiful trail. Starts in heavy Frazier fur on the AT then dumps you out to the burn area with endless views for several miles. Beautiful woods and rhododendron tunnels. Great views of chimneys as well. I will definitely do this one again.

We paid for shuttle to pick us up at Laurel Falls parking lot at 8:30. He took us up to Clingmans Dome road and we hiked back down, 12.4 miles total. There was snow for 3 1/2 miles at top. Beautiful views at the major burn area on the ridge, looking back down on Chimney Tops, 441, and Gatlinburg. Colors were at peak. Just before end of trail you have a big ridge to climb. Awesome trail!

Nice trail although the continuous incline will get to you by mile 3! Cemetery and stone house paths are not clearly marked and a bit hard to find. The river is beautiful and hiking in early November offered up some beautiful fall foliage. Watch for slippery rocks! My husband slipped and fell flat out - (with only minor sore buns - Lol!)

Who ever said this trail was easy has lost their mind! Starting down at laurel parking lot and going up is hard as hell! Some areas where so thin you had to put one foot in front of the other.. There was tons of bear scat all on the trail. There is no water to be find on this trial so make sure you pack it all in with you.. All the water sources on this trail were dried up! (It is July) I found most of the trail pretty boring as well

I hiked this trail from Newfound Gap to Mt Collins and down to Little River Rd it was some of the best winter views you will have. It was mostly downhill from Collins shelter. This is okay if you do not mind all downhill. Was a little rough trail on the Indian Gap beginning but good after that! Will do again when spring blooms arrive.

One of the better hikes that go through so many different elevations with many views and well worth gthe effoet.

Dropped off up top on Clingmans dome rd and had a nice mainly downhill hike, isolated. I had never seen a bear in the smokies but I saw 2 on this trail, pretty close too. With a mile to go I had to follow it because it jumped on my trail and took off. 25 ft in front me.
