Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Best hike I've ever done

Nice for beginners

Always a great trail have done in all season and winter is the best

Nice way to test your mind, have fun!

Incredibly simple trail down to a beautiful waterfall. A bit crowded due to the ease, but would still highly recommend because the waterfall it’s an atypical one.

Beautiful but surprisingly more difficult than expected due to being on sand and pebbles. Crowded but understandably so due to the views and starting right on the beach.

Added on after hiking Mt Storm King and it was a pretty lackluster waterfall compared to others in the area. Trail was crowded due to being an easier hike.

This is my favorite hike in the Smokies. Beautiful views and lots of amazing natural wonders to take in. Can be difficult at times but is well worth the effort. Can't wait to do this again when the wild flowers are in bloom.

Nice hike. It was the only blue sky day of the week. We got to the parking area about 10:00 am and did find a parking spot. There is a bath room at the trail head. It was fairly busy to the falls. Easy to moderate. The falls is beautiful and it’s cool that the Trillium trail passes behind it. We had a snack there and continued up the trail another mile or so towards LeConte. Here, we were wonderfully alone. This trail is much less traveled. Only saw a group of 6 people coming down from the Lodge. The snow line started around 4000 ft. I found some neat ice needles forming in the mud at the base of some of the fallen tree roots. We turned around at a river crossing around 4500 ft. There are several turn of the century log homesteads on the motor trail that are interesting history to spend time at on your return to Gatlinburg.

Fantastic trail, but the last half mile is pretty strenuous and terrifying. The views are worth it if you can persist. By far the most challenging but rewarding hike I’ve ever done. It’s longer than advertised here, more like 5 miles. The first 2 miles are a series of switchbacks that get very steep in places and never seem to end. These stop at Scout’s Landing, where many people turn around after taking in the views. The last half mile is mostly climbing. Proper footwear and plenty of water are essential, and do not bring small children or pets. We are 50 and in decent shape but not used to higher elevations, and it took us 4+ hours round trip, which included plenty of stops and a slow pace thanks to my fear of heights. So glad I did this. But it really is every bit as scary as advertised, so don’t take it lightly.

Pleasant, easy hike through some of the most beautiful scenery of Zion.

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

Did this trail last year in November! Start early as it gets crowded on the chains section! Very strenuous but the most amazing views! Don’t attempt this if you’re scared of heights!

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

Should be listed as moderate.
Very good hike
Excellent.

One of my favorite trails. I did not like all the bear jams along Cade’s cove though. Took a long time to get out of the park. But we’ll worth it. Saw a total of 16 bears mostly mammas with their cubs. Wild turkey. The biggest red headed woodpecker I ever saw and bunch of deer. Great day.

There is a paved steep pathway to the observation deck. Not far but steep. Beautiful view from the top. Take the clingmans dome bypass trail back down to the parking lots it’s worth it. I wish I knew there was an adjacent trail before I saw the ranger at the deck.

My wife and I took turns doing this on a rainy day. It was an easy hike with rewarding scenery and great fall foliage. Because of the rain, we each had the trail to ourselves. 40 minutes out and back if you walk fast—easy to knock off while your 2 year old explores the visitor center with your spouse.

We did not go all the way to mount leconte. My hubby and I stopped at the bluff. From the trail head to the bluff, it’s about 2.2 miles. What a great hike. Really loved this trail. The mossy trees and creek were amazing. The arch was super cool. The bluff had icicles hanging that were falling down like missles. Loved it. This is a very popular trail so go early.

This trail had a bit of everything. the view from the top was amazing too! just beware of the ice all over the trail this time of the year

Great trail went yesterday with my 12 year old son and my wife. Tuff for the kid in the 1st leg but after that no issues beautiful hike.

We did it about a month ago! One of my favorites! Loved the colorful fall trees! Definitely a "MUST do" in fall.

I have so much respect for this mountain after hiking this trail. Definitely one of the hardest hikes I've done, but also the most rewarding. There are so many beautiful landmarks to keep you inspired along the way.

The hike to the falls is easy, beautiful scenery along the way. Path is narrow in certain points and heavily trafficked.
