Great hike! Killer switchbacks but so worth it with views at top.

Great workout, lots of fun places to explore on this rock. Lots of traffic but get there early. Found my own personal lookout spot and even a cave

Lovely, largely shaded trail evidently recently cleared (only one easily traversible tree fall blocking the path today). The necessity of having to ford 5 knee-deep and fairly fast water crossings along return (or outgoing) portion of Caldwell Fork Trail makes it much more challenging than 4 years ago when bridges were intact.

One of my favorites so far in the Smokies!!

The hike has an easy option walking along the river, which is short but beautiful. Gorgeous views and a fun walk.

I disagree with a few of the comments here. This hike is very easy, but enjoyable if you want to get a quick workout in while visiting Hot Springs. It took me about an hour to complete with my dog. The only challenge with this hike is the unmarked trails. The part of Lover’s Leap on the AT is clearly marked with white blazes, but the rest of the trail is not marked. Bring a map and a compass and you’ll be fine.

Viewed the lower falls and then hiked to the upper falls. The trail to upper was pretty muddy but not at all un-passable. We hiked back to the parking lot by going on the graveyard fields trail to add some variety. Lower falls were very crowded but the hike to upper falls had more solitude and when we arrived at the upper falls we were the only ones there.

Nice walk. Falls small but pretty.

This trail was amazing great scenery of the water and the mountains, the waterfalls at the end is worth the hike. The walking bridges that you crossing overlooking the water is great. You want be disappointment at all. I had lunch at the top then walked back down the 4 miles. A total of 8 miles that I really enjoyed. the weather was great it rained a little but with all my sweat i didn’t even notice.

Beautiful trails and waterfalls!

Fantastic trail, one of the best in the park!

Love love loved it! Last hike we did before we leave for home. Glad we waited to do it last. Was not difficult at all.

Really enjoyed the hike to the falls. The trail is gorgeous, and the "obstacles" walking in and around rocks and tree roots made it interesting. Definitely not difficult, since we saw many people with young children during the hike. Took our two Chihuahuas along and they had no problem with the terrain. The falls at the end made the hike well worth it.

Nice short hike. I imagine it would be even better with less of a crowd.

Pretty cool short hike. Overgrown in parts with limited views. Falls were awesome. The trail does continue past the trail, but we turned around because the views didn’t open up very much after the falls either.

Awesome trail, little traffic and awesome views at the top.

I did this hike today and it was very nice. The view is so beautiful at the end! The hike isn’t too strenuous and I would rate it moderate to hard at the very end. Be careful with yellow jackets (there was a nest), I got stung and ended up with a severe allergic reaction and a rescue team had to come get me. So if you’re allergic, take your pen/meds with you!

First thing to note is that this is a different trail than looking glass falls which several people seemed confused about. The only water fall is a very small one near the start. The trail is not steep but the 3 miles out is entirely uphill. The view at the top is definitely worth it though!

Great hike! We hiked it with our young children and got to see two bears!

Lovely views, lovely hike. The climb is never steep, just steady and moderate. We hiked up for sunset and soaked in our first Eastern sights of the Milky Way along with a hand-full of meteors from the Perseid shower. Other than a few passers-by, we had the place to ourselves.

Great workout. Not a scenic “hike”.

The day I went it was super muddy and slippery so definitely be careful coming back down!

Loved the scenic trail and the destination is breathtaking! Hike is very strenuous but worth it in the end!

GREAT views, and a real workout once you start to climb!

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

Nice hike, great double falls at the top. Parking is sparse so go early.

It is an amazing hike and worth he pain all the way up. Don’t be fooled, the map said 4 Miles so round trip 8. However, I clocked over 12
Miles. We went with my daughter 7 and she did great but was a struggle at parts. Gorgeous hike along the river for most of it with some fun bridges and river crossings. Go prepared with water and snacks!

Hard work but the view makes it worth it! Lots of water on the trail causing frequent mud puddles.
