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.

The road up there was gravel and bumpy, but any car can make it. The hike itself was beautiful. Definitly wear good shoes because some spots are slick. Beautiful was tho. Make sure to take North Side trail. I'm a chunky woman and it was still easy for me:)

We've started taking our 6 year old son hiking and he absolutely loved this one. We used Google maps to get there and it took us right to the trail head. He loved getting in the little pools of water hiking up to the main fall. This trail is definitely kid friendly.

Easy walk around the lake. Sunrise is beautiful. Watch your step though, not all folks pick up after their dogs.

Easy for first time hikers as well as experienced. just make sure you have water prior as water is quarter mile away if you dont want to walk. but worth it!!!

So pretty! Saw lots of wildlife and the kids loved it! We got out and walked at a few spots! Great if you don't like to hike but still like to see the views!

I love this trail! I used to hike it as a kid and remember enjoying all of the water areas to play in along the way up the mountain. It's definitely a workout, but such an incredible view at the top. So worth it!!

I really enjoy walking around this Lake

Absolutely beautiful view. A good place to view the mountains from the ground level. We even saw a few animals, black bear, fox, turkeys, deer. A few of old houses.

Took my seven and eight year old sons - the trail had lots of fun water stops and the water fall was approachable and beautiful.

It was perfect for young kids and a puppy. Wide trails. No drops. They could play in several stops along the river and even at the fall.

use it for exercise at least once a week for a very beautiful calm walk. never considered it a trail just a paved walkway.

Easy walk paved trail with great sunset views.

Enjoyed this hike a lot. Only came across three other groups of hikers so we pretty much had it all to ourselves. There are a lot of tree roots to navigate through the first half of the hike and there was a lot of muddy areas but the wild flowers were worth it.

This trail is PERFECT for the beginning hiker who is in average physical condition. The falls are beautiful and worth the walk!

This hike was beautiful!

This is a great trail. Starts out along the river, cross a nice bridge, and come across the falls. When we went it had rained heavy for days before. I've never seen the river so angry and the falls flowing so well. The river had to be nonstop class 5 rapids. very impressive

Hiked this with family in November 2017. It remains my favorite hike. The views at the top are amazing. So clear views for a long ways away. Great photo ops. Can’t wait to return.

A pretty walk, but nothing spectacular. Really close to the road, so we could hear traffic the whole time.

Definitely a fun and challenging trail to do! There were several creek crossings which was a welcome break from the mostly uphill walk. The trail was not super well maintained and was overgrown in many places (and even had a section that was just walking upstream in the river). Though there were not any mountain vistas, the forestry and rivers made for beautiful scenery. Don’t underestimate this trail though - we were in for a surprise since we had expected a flat trail along a winding river. With a 25+lb backpack on, it made for a moderate to difficult hike. If you’re in the area though and want to get away from heavily trafficked trails like Chimney Tops then this is it! We saw only one other group the whole time.

loved the views. Truly worth the drive. Would like to go in fall and even start over night.

first trail hike in quite a log time. not too difficult and saw alot of wildlife. good hike

Great family hike.

An easy way to get 7 miles in. Enjoyable stroll along the river, some rocks and roots along the trail but easily tunable. 4 of us went and all agreed it was great :)

Beautiful trail, good for dogs!!

Views are beautiful and it’s very peaceful at the top. Like others have said, it’s not much of a “hike” it’s more of a walk to the top, take in the scenery and head back to the bottom. All and all tho, it’s definitely beautiful up there.
