The views are amazing in the spring and fall! The hike is not difficult, and the paths are well-kept.

The waterfall at the end was definitely worth the hike!! I was able to hang my hammock up right underneath the waterfall and take about an hour nap. It’s so lightly trafficked, there was no one but me for about an hour and a half, so that was very nice. If you aren’t paying close attention, you’ll lose the trail. It’s completely rock jumping at parts, with no dirt trail to follow. If you’re up for an adventure, i highly suggest this hike!

Great hike, especially with walking next to the stream for the majority of it and having several waterfalls. Also, there is a local there that will give you a ride to the opposite end of the trail since it is a through hike and that makes it really convenient to get back to your vehicle.

Great trail. My wife loved it. We had fun and great views.

Defiantly on my top ten list!

Great trail with beautiful overlooks most of the way in winter and spring. wildflowers. waterfalls. creeks. lakes. rock formations. Plenty of side trails if you have time. Moderate trail overall for this area due to the length . It is fairly easy in some areas. Sewanee is a great place to hike and just be. The campus is beautiful. Trails well kept and marked.

Went last week to get a feel for the trail and made it just past Big Laurel Falls. Tough hike on the return though! Wish I had arrived a hour or two sooner to complete it. Will be back in a couple weeks!

Great hike!! Strenuous at times, but worth it!

Beautiful waterfall and very nice ranger at the trailhead. Very easy hike for kids and pets!

Love this trail. It has become more popular lately and can be a bit crowded at times. Great for swimming!

I’ve been hiking here since I was a child. Great day hike and plenty of other activities to do in the park.

Hiked this a few days ago it was beautiful. The waterfalls were peaceful. Rattlesnake Point was incredible, I’ll never forget that view. The beginning of the hike is a bit slow but well worth it.

Breathtaking views and great hiking! Love this park.

Amazing spot! My tracker measured as 10.5 miles. Difficulty is correct & you hike uphill a significant part of the return. Be prepared & don’t make them rescue you from out here.

Great hike! It is challenging, especially when you hike down to the bottom of the falls because the hike back up is a rough one. I love this state park and it holds so many different waterfalls so I would highly recommend that you try all of the falls out! Also, if you can get a chance to see these falls in the winter, I would highly recommend it!

it's a tough trail but worth it!

Beautiful trail with a breathtaking waterfall. Denny Cove is our favorite in this area.

Tough going on the way back, but my middle and elementary school-aged kids did great. We went after a week of rain and the falls (all three you come to on the trail) were worth every step it took to get out and back.

We'll be going back to hike to some of the overlooks and explore the spurs.

It was challenging for me as I haven’t done that distance in years. The views were fantastic- great time of year (early March) for some bonus waterfalls. Great sense of accomplishment after completing the loop!

A great place to hike and get outside with so many trails you could hike for days. Awesome swing bridges to cross the rivers too. The view from the ridge was beautiful and we will definitely be back to do more hiking and possible campout in their several designated spots.

One of a kind.

Link to a popular map of the trail:

Give yourself at least seven hours. And if you decide to hike down to Foster Falls at the end, give yourself another 1/2 hour.

Thanks to R. Keenan for sharing the info about Dorothy Thomas's shuttle service.

You couldn't have asked for a better day for a hike, mid 60s, sunny, and a gentle breeze. The trails were well marked. Bathrooms were clean and everything worked fine. Waterfall was beautiful.

Easy hike with some rocky spots at the end coming up on the falls. I went after a huge rain and the falls were raging! Hardly any other foot traffic making other human interaction minimal. (

The trail is easy, the stairs down to it can be tough when you’re coming out. A few are missing and make for a bit of a challenge.

Fantastic falls!! Made the trip when my dad was in town and we always do an annual hike. I had heard this was a good hike. I would say it is moderate but then again it was in February and wasn't hot out. I can see this being difficult in the summer heat. Make the time to go to the top. There isn't a really good view of the falls from there but the climb up and views are worth it.

Good trail with great scenery. Hiked it on weekend and had a fair amount of traffic.

Easy hike with a well maintained trail and some pretty neat suspension bridges that my nine year old loved. Falls was great. Also must say that the ranger station by the parking lot had very clean and well maintained bathrooms which I rarely ever find at parks.
