Was mosquito heaven, water was stagnant, other areas were dry.

This is my home trail. My dog and me hike it atleast twice a month. It never disappoints us. I recommend it to anyone that wants a good hike but not to tasking. my favorite trip was probably when it was snowing.
There are some stairs that are unevenly spaced and deep. my friend has a bad knee (old sports injury) the stairs were a little difficult for her so you want to plan ahead for them. Super dog friendly with plenty of swimming opportunities for our furry friends.

Not really an interesting hike now but will have potential once completed. Nice scenic area around the quarry though.

Most trails appear to be of easy to moderate + difficulty. Intresting trails and scenic greenways. Plenty of activities for children. Pet friendly areas. Plenty of parking. Close to home.

A great little park on the south side of the city. Lots of fun walking along the river and good for all ages.

The only downfall was a combo of not well marked at sports and not traveled therefore a ton of spider webs.

Went with a group from work, had the best guide we could ask for. Checked off a bucket list item, and will definitely be back again!! Highly recommend this!

It’s a nice trail, with a lot of side trails that you can distract yourself with. We had a difficult time finding the path at one point, but as long as you don’t mind meandering for a short while it won’t be an issue.

Great little taste of nature for when you're in Knoxville and can't leave your responsibilities behind to get yourself to the smokies.

Rode the 7 mile trail for the first time on my new mountain bike this morning. Trails are very well marked and great for someone new to trail riding. Had to get off the bike about 3 times to make it up a few hills with big roots exposed, only because I didn't get enough momentum on the downhill first. Great ride, great trails.

Half the trail has moderate elevation gain in a beautiful wooded area and the other half is flat and runs along the water. We almost always see deer and a variety of birds on and along the water. The hiking trail is well maintained. The rangers are friendly and helpful.

If you are in Roswell and have nothing better to do then this is a fine way to spend a morning. Don’t go out of your way.

Great place to take your kids and pets, will be coming back again!

More of a peaceful walk than a hike, and no view of any real “falls”. However it was enjoyable

Good trail and super easy but I will admit I was expecting a decent size fall. It was still fun though.

Awesome place with awesome views of the quarry! A bit of a hike up a small mountain, as well as level trail.

Just completed the south side of the trail with two of my four Shih Tzu companions. This part of the trail was much easier to follow than the north side that I did on my previous visit and took less than two hours. Well worth the effort.

Best falls I’ve been to this summer!!! The hike to the blue hole was rough. I had two dogs with me, but they did really well. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet!

Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

To experience the best at this place you need to take the trail from the overlook off of Chapman Hwy on the left side of the quarry. It’s rugged and secluded back there and would probably rank as difficult in many places.
Other reviewers are right though that the other people in the area aren’t always the best, but I know a few places to go to avoid them for the most part.

I’ve done this paddle ride twice this year. Views and scenery are amazing. Seeing the Bald Eagles fly over was breathtaking. Is definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a day.

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

This trail has a good mix of ups and downs. Great for exercise

I love Ijams and how close it is to Downtown Knoxville. There’s always something to see here! Easy to moderate trails that anyone can enjoy.

Nice walk in the woods and along the lake shore.

Same as everyone else has stated, the trek down can be rugged and boring, but the ending is worth it.

Very narrow trail and poor markings at spots.

Even though the waterfall has dried up the hike was still very enjoyable...and pretty. Got lots of great shots!
