All of the reviews were very helpful. The entire trail is easy until you get to the falls. When you turn left at the falls sign, the last 100 yards is descending down stairs and a slippery root filled trail. This was an excellent first hike in Tennessee.

Fun hike with a great view at Signal Point! We loved seeing the bridges, creeks, and boulders throughout the route. There were many rocks and tree roots to traverse along the trail. Watch trail signs as some of the trails seem to cross at certain points. We definitely enjoyed this hike!

so, we totally went off trail. Trekked up river, swam, slipped, fell. great little spots to just sit and picnic. Second time here. kids love it, especially when they lead!

very cool and gorgeous trail. very difficult at times. Definitely a quad and glute workout with all the steps. waterfalls are amazing

Great hike. improvements are continuing to be made.

Nice little hike, beautiful scenery! Whole hike, in and out took about 2 hours... and that's with exploring off trail and taking our time. Took my 6 year old. She loved it! Got some great pictures!

Great trail but it's closed past Sycamore Falls which was only around 2 miles in. Looking forward to going back after the gas line has been repaired.

Wow! The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of people. The hike back out was pretty steep, but well work the trip.

Steady incline down on the way in makes for an increased difficulty on the way out. Not too bad even for inexperienced hikers, however the trail markers were tough to spot toward the end when the trail became less obvious. Following the sound of the waterfall proved more useful. A few spots where sure footing was not guaranteed.

Part of trail unknowingly closed "until September" after I read it supposedly opened around August 1st. Arrived at 5pm from 4 hrs travelling, and a citation issued on the windshield of our car the following morning for camping d/t campsite being closed, but too far in to hike out after arrival. Embarrassed to be escorted out (on our way out) by Park Rangers (eldest with 3 months experience after telling us we would be cleared of citation for not actually having been 'found camping.') Beautiful sights, however. Do your research more in depth than I did, apparently, before staying here or hiking past 5pm.

very pretty. slippery rocks of course so make sure your shoes have tread on them before going. the trail winds from the land into the water to the rocks to get to the waterfall.

Some parts of the trail were not marked very well and some parts were eroded away.

Was a nice hike to the falls, recommend going in to the right at entrance so you end at the falls. Took climbers access 2 and ended with 2.5 miles total

Most of the trail is meh, the falls are great. Be sure to keep going back until you see the large drop off that’s impassable.

Would highly recommend this trail! Did it with my dog and she enjoyed swimming in the creeks. Was one of the easier hikes I’ve done and was fairly short. The directions on this app took me to the Gee mountain caves and not the trail head so be careful when you arrive. We just walked about .5 miles and found the trailhead no problem. The waterfalls were BEAUTIFUL.

Did this hike yesterday. It had rained very much the night before so alot of slippery areas but what an awesome hike

This was a perfect place for a midday hike with my husband and three girls. Not too challenging but you do get a workout. Can swim and play in the creeks. Very scenic and we took some great photos. It was a real highlight of our trip to TN. It was muddy. Also had trouble following trail signs but we did fine.

This was an absolutely beautiful trail from start to end! If you are looking for a challenging, but not too strenuous 2-3 hour hike that includes a creekside view and sound for a majority of the hike, well-marked and maintained trails, beautiful wooded area, 2 spectacular waterfalls and a great place to play in the water (especially for kids and water dogs!) then this is a great pick! We were very grateful to have read prior posts about how to route around the construction on the bridge, as we would have had no idea how to get to this secluded treasure! It was in the middle of no where, but definitely worth the drive! We hiked to the top fall first, followed by the lower falls trail. There was no way of swimmimg in the water near the falls as it was to rugged, but some great spots to wade in alongside the creek! Great hidden gem!

Great place!! Short hike down stream then follow the river bed to the falls. Ton of people.

Love the beautiful fall and hike!!

This was probably my favorite trail that we hiked! I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the cave at the top was gorgeous! Made for the perfect spot to enjoy a snack and break. Our group ranged from 6yo-62yo. All had a great time! Kids loved the bridges along the way. Next time we will continue to Mount LeConte for the full experience!

Great little hike with a beautiful waterfall as payoff. There are a few really muddy spots on the trail so make sure you have the correct shoes.

Fun little hike and easy to do with smaller children. Hike to the base of the waterfall is short and the swimming hole is a lot of fun. We did the loop on the way out and was moderate in a couple of spots and was maybe 1.5 miles or so. We had 4 kids (13, 13, 10 & 10), and they did just fine. Fun little rock formations to play on.

Had a great time this past Sunday with the family. Kinda short but fun.

My family and I hiked this on a Tuesday in July. It was a fun hike and the waterfalls were beautiful. We got into the water at both falls and had loads of fun. The trail itself is mostly single track through woods and along the side of the river. Going down to the falls is mostly downhill, and the return loop has a stretch of uphill that requires some effort. Nothing too serious though. I highly recommend this hike.

Great trail! Well marked and maintained. Gorgeous views. Very runnable. It’s right at 2 miles out to the end of point trail, then 2 miles back. Definitely take time to see the views!

We went twice first time say only 2 couples and 4 days later saterday saw at least 7 couples. We swam it it lots of fun. Did see a large snake. No other wildlife.

This is a beautiful hike to a waterfall.

Great scenery. Lots of rocks, some loose. They aren’t kidding when they say wear water hiking shoes. You have to go through water to get to the falls. The falls are beautiful! And worth the hike. But be careful. Expect to get wet. The swimming hole is perfect. Water temp very refreshing. Went on. Friday afternoon. Very very crowded but didn’t really slow us down.
