Great short hike... Awesome waterfall

there's several creeks here close by that kids or adults can play in. right under the bridge is the best spot I think. very pretty area, trails arent too long but it's nice and shaded.

Pretty easy. beautiful beautiful beautiful views!!!!! lovers leap is an amazing story too. kid and dog friendly for sure.

Fun, easy, short walk.... beautiful falls.

Very nice place and provide more than the waterfalls. It is worth to explore more around. I have been here many times one of the favorites.

I went to this trail just today (06/29/18) and I absolutely loved the falls. They were gorgeous. The water felt amazing as well. The hike was easy, but a few small hills to climb. Definitely recommended!

Very easy to get to and well taken care of. This is a unique waterfall. Handicap parking & handicap accessible.

Short trail, but very pretty waterfall.

Decent little trail with a lot of scenery, with a cave along the way. I wouldn't go hours out of my way for to do this trail. But maybe if in area swing by & check it out.

My wife and I drove up from East Tennessee to see the natural tunnel and hike this trail. We started about 830 am and hiked from the parking lot down the trail to the natural cave. The trail was paved and the scenery was beautiful. We reached the natural cave and was awed by the size of the tunnel! Trains hauling coal actively transport through the cave. There are areas around the stone walls before the cave entrance that saltpeter was mined by Confederate soldiers.
We then hiked back up to the parking lot and up Lovers Leap trail. Again the majority of the trail is paved. The lookout point at Lover’s Leap was breathtaking. Well worth the drive from East Tennessee.

nice falls, currently doing repair work to the trail.

well maintained trail. falls is about 30 minute walk from parking.

So this trail is better for Mountain Biking than hiking. Although still one of the best choices if you are going to hike second to Magic Carpet Ride for the view from the top. Rock City has a small waterfall on it also.

peaceful hike and good trail to take kids on.

A beautiful,easy hike in late February. Weather was great, plenty of wildlife roaming around. Good scenery which we enjoyed. I’d recommend if your looking for a fun, easy hike.

beautiful waterfall

Peaceful hike, then the wolves began howling and made it even better!

depends on if your hiking or biking. As a hike i would rate it a 1. its all flat so its makes a great walk for a begginer and you do hrt to see the beautiful lake but the reason for a low rating is because it is right beside the highway and you can hear it very well and also you can hear the airport, planes leaving. the trail is small, just big enough for a bike. If you are goung biking then this is a great trail

Great place to take kids to play in the creek.

All I found were Forrest roads. The description says camping but there were very few places you could even use to camp. Nothing to see but a steep wall on one side and a steep drop off on the other. We drove forever and just pulled off onto one of the few places you could actually pull over and set up for the night. Left as soon as we got a break in the rain. Very disappointing after visiting Pisgah National Forrest trails in NC.
