on Glen Falls Trail

Fun and short for a 4 & 6 yr old.

Wonderful trail. Howecer, one way was a little too much for a 4 & 6 year old, so once we made it down to Craven's we had a Lyft driver bail us out and drive us back up to Point Park.

Nice hike to attractive 65 foot waterfall. Marked with blue i-shaped paint blazes. Mostly flat and easy on wide trail until you reach the stone steps down to the base of the falls at the very end. Go after a good rain for best waterfall viewing. Overall, best short hike at Chilhowee Recreation Area.

A great easy walk. There was enough water over the falls to make it beautiful.

This was a great trail for taking my 4 yr. old and 8 yr. old kids.

Lovely trail.

This is one of my favorite hiking trails. Especially when you make it down to Rainbow Falls ;)

Poison Ivy was overwhelming. The trail is overgrown in several spots. Trail surface is excellent. Waterfalls with bridge and a rock staircase with hidden stone door. Really cool. A great little swimming hole too.

Nice hike, but TONS of poison ivy. Needs to be removed.

It’s a pretty easy hike. Beautiful, but lots of hidden roots and rocks from erosion popping up. It’s easy to twist an ankle or trip. Just look down as you go.

I'll be back to search for a safe path down to the elusive Rainbow Falls.

Great hike to take family and friends. Easy, short, and very photogenic falls at the end. You can actually walk into the base of the falls to sit and stand while they wash over you.

Nice hike. Amazing views of the water. plenty of places to go for a dip.

The reviews were a little misleading to me. It is rated Easy, and I/we would not. There were a lot of rocks to climb/descend especially near the falls. In my opinion this was harder than easy and would be more in line with moderate. Benton falls was way easier.

This is a very scenic hike! Multiple water falls and rock formations. not sure where they are getting the 2 miles from. this hike is 1 mile out and back from the road. Easy for all levels.

Loved it! The falls were beautiful!

Great hike. Lots to see.

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.

awesome hike some downed trees due to storm and higher river water but it is ok to cross in order to continue to the trail up to the waterfall where we were able to jump off a few times and swim under the sun. just beautiful . easy even with dogs and an 8 year old.

Cravens House is a cool historic sight to see. Trail was great, awesome views! I went with some friends that rock climb- definitely good for that!

Nice easy hike!

Excellent raw trail. Lots of interest. My wife and I took took this on in late afternoon. Lots of rain over the days before had Rock Creek flowing fast and high, turning the rock hopping jaunts into thigh-deep wading. Nevermind that. The reward at the in end was well worth it. The reward at the out end a downhill grade. Note: Lots of slick mud on the trail.
Also this is not a hard hike, but it did not seem particularly kid-friendly to us.

There is a great pool at the falls near the bridge.

Love this little trail! We only had a little time before heading to Nashville and this was the perfect hike. Very interesting with small waterfalls and pools of water (a lot of rain lately).

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.

Perfect trail for kids! Only was 1mi to the falls AND BACK though. Two small swimming hole areas. TONS of poison ivy on sides of the trail.

Very nice trail with beautiful view of Chattanooga from the top! Strongly recommend

This is a beautiful hike to a waterfall.

Nice wide trail. Waterfall trickles into several small pools for the kids to play in
