Great trails challenging but fun. Happy trails

We did this trail a few in late November and really enjoyed it. Our kids are 6 and 8 and have grown up hiking and this trail was perfect for them. The waterfalls are pretty. Our dog really enjoyed the water too

12-3-17 Parked at the TrailHead just beyond the DLT campground. Walked passed closed signs and hiked up to the AT then left and headed south to Woody Gap.
No reason for this trail to still be "closed" it was safe smooth sailing all the way to the top. You can definitely see where the blowdowns are but they have been removed from the path of the trail. Plenty of creek/river crossings to get (filtered) water. Beautiful woods for the whole hike. Did a shuttle from point A to B.
If you want to hike this trail, I'd say do it. I went through without any problems.
Happy Hiking!!

The waterfall is totally worth the incline hike on the way back. Beautiful, some excellent backwoods camping spots, and you'll feel like a rockstar when you drive through a creek to get there.

Beautiful views closer to Tesnatee gap and three summit camp spots. Some solid uphill climbs that quickly even out so it's not difficult. Would have gotten a full five stars but as other hikers have noted, there's not a water. Two sources closer to tesnatee but pretty disappointing flow.

Been a few times now. Little bit of something for everyone. First 3/4 mile gentle easy hike then next 1/4 mile tough uphill for most. Great overlook approximately a mile from woody gap.

You'll have to drive through a creek to get to the trailhead, and cars can definitely make it through, otherwise it's a little over a mile walk up a steep hill from the road entrance to the trail. There are two waterfalls with viewing platforms of each and both are really beautiful.

This is a nice hike. It gets ever steeper as you near the summit and the final pitch is very steep. The views are worth it, though.
