    We hiked this trail yesterday. Round trip we hiked 8.4 miles which we didn't plan. We are experienced hikers so we were prepared with water, snacks, rain gear we made some mileage miscalculations. The gravel road to the trail was closed so we had to park one mile away from the "official" start of the trail. This added 2 miles to the trip. We also didn't realize the "official" start of the trail was one mile on the gravel road. Once we got on the "path" we began our mileage calculation to Fern Branch Falls. Which should have been 1.9 miles. After going 2.5 miles and never seeing the falls we turned around. On the way down we saw the falls to our right. We had passed them! If only we had looked to our left when we made a creek crossing on the rocks. Dumb on us. Beautiful hike though. Nobody else on the trail. Hike is right along a stream so you get the relaxing sound of water over rocks. Lots of beautiful ferns and foliage. Rocks and roots require poles and good hiking shoes. Will definitely do this again in the spring for the rhododendron tunnel. Next time I will know to look to the left for the falls.

    The Smokies are beautiful and no doubt the scenery here is also. I give it only three stars because of the crowds and the rock scrambling at the top. People everywhere! Also the only way to experience the view at the top is very risky. This trail is very popular because access is right off Newfound Gap Road. There are better hikes in the park that will get you to the top of a mountain for the view with leas people.

    Nice walk through the woods. Trees starting to leaf out. Baby geese have hatched
