    Beautiful, easy nature walk. Many trails in Big South Fork are suffering from the funding cuts (not their fault), but this popular trail is in great shape. Lots of interesting boulders and trees along the river. We went after a week of flooding and the trail had drained well.

    "Angel Falls" is not a waterfall, it's just rapids, but it's still pretty.

    The steep mountainside makes it feel like you’re high up in the trees. It’s very popular with bikers so if you hike it, listen and watch for them.

    It really needs to be marked better, though. We ended up on the bike-only trail by accident and it could have been dangerous. No blazes made it guesswork the whole way.

    Maybe it was the old fort, but this trail feels like it’s in Europe, not Tennessee. There are so many old gnarled oak trees and majestic beech trees. The meadow is beautiful and you get a great view of the surrounding island, even with the meadow grasses reaching six feet high around you. The trails are clearly marked and well-kept. We loved it.

    The trails could be marked better — the directions on this website actually don’t match up with the signs posted. We got turned around and ended up walking back along the road.

    Some parts of the trail went through very dark parts of the forest along a creek, which felt pretty magical. Take a stick for clearing out spider webs as you walk.

    The trail is actually a gravel road, which is why I only gave it two stars. Definitely an easy walk, though. I’m pretty out of shape but I barely broke a sweat after four miles.

    The gate was closed so I called the number on it, and the lady I talked to was very nice and told me the park *was* open — we just had to park at the gate and walk to the trailhead a half mile away. Not a big deal, just FYI.
