enjoyed this late winter hike but let the tick season begin. found two even after liberal application of Deet.

The trail was semi wet from all the rain recently but still very navigable. I was passing through on a road trip and loved that this trail was right off the highway to stop for lunch. I would call this trail easy. The elevation gain was gradual. Very well marked!!! Great views, especially for being right next to the highway, I was more than pleased. Better hike than I could have anticipated and great views to sit and eat lunch!

Great trail with awesome scenes and many waterfalls.

kayak there a lot

Beautiful this time of the year. Love all the moss covered rocks. Interesting how the scenery changes. Will go back.

Moderately challenging uphills. When you make it to the suspension bridge, turn right and you’ve got roughly 20 more minute to mushroom rock. Wear stable shoes as there are some dicey descents, and being your walking sticks. Perfect way to get lost for a few hours. Bonus picnic area at the bridge.

Great trip, some of the trail was flooded due to rain earlier in the morning, but overall it was fun.

A nice morning workout. Good ups and downs make for a decent sweat even in the cold. Absolutely beautiful views

Very very easy hike! Great view!

We started hiking again and picked this as our first trail. It is a beautiful trail with lots of scenery and a great view of the Tennessee river.

Just called the park and the trail is and has been closed and no permits are being given at this time

Amazing view and an easy hike. Absolutely loved it!

We wanted to take a quick hike with a nice view and stumbled across Falling Falls.. it ended up being the perfect choice for such a cold day. Beautiful scenery! Worth the trip. Beautiful drive up too!

Found this trail today it was a great hike with fantastic scenery and fun to hike.

Spent a short winter's day on most of this loop - very enjoyable and the majority of the trail was well-marked with white blazes, especially the Snoopers Rock portion. Had some trouble finding where the trail continued after reaching the ATV road on the western part of the mountain - had to walk up the road itself maybe 150 feet to find a small wooden sign marked "Trail." All in all it was a great experience despite the fog and I'll definitely be back!

My favorite trail. It is lovely and a moderate hike.

Hard run down for three miles and then up for three at the end. We had three gps units between our group and the most mileage we had was 12 we followed the map provided. Strava also had a map it was not 16. I’m glad it was twelve :)

Equal amounts of uphill and downhill terrain make this hike manageable for even the inexperienced hiker. The features, which include an assortment of interesting rock formations, a spooky hole in the ground, an incredible suspension bridge, and sweeping views of the creek are evenly sprinkled along the trail. Just when you get tired of walking, there seems to be a good reason to stop and enjoy your surroundings. The trail was also easy to navigate, not crowded, and a breeze to find. Two thumbs up from us gals!

Pretty good loop. We hiked on 11/20/17. Views of the Tennessee River were spectacular. Tons of wildlife scampering about.

It was a challenging hike but nice

The road to get there is so bad plus I had to do it in thick fog

Beautiful campsite at McNabb Gulf

Great easy trail with a dog.

Beautiful hike near a lake. Trail was well marked. Not too difficult, however there was probably close to a dozen trees fallen and covering the path that you had to climb over or under. Downside.. it was close to the interstate and you could hear that the majority of the time.

Easy, moderate length loop. Nice views of the water and even a couple of "beachy" areas just off trail.

Easy loop through the woods and around the waterfront. Small inclines and soft trail.
