it's an easy hike. pretty dry considering all of the rain we've had recently. the beginning path is extremely narrow and looks more suited for bikes. once you get close to the stream the trail opens up. waterfalls were super nice. we got off trail on the way back but were able to make a nice loop out of it.

Fun day on the AT. Did a 5.5 mile round trip from parking lot south towards Neels Gap. Met Dave who was camping at the top of Cow Rock. Cool dude and very knowledgeable of the area. Met other cool folks as well!

Great fun for beginners. Did this in a stock JL wrangler on all seasons without a single issue. Fun trail to go out into the woods and just have a causal drive. Anything AWD with decent ground clearance like a Subaru Outback would probably make this with no issue.

Road was in good condition even with all of the rain. No 4wd was necessary, but would recommend an suv

Great trail to go and play on, definitely would not recommend a stock 2wd vehicle to go up it. There was a serious washout and my truck with 31s and my buddies truck with 33s had a VERY tough time making it up it. Other then that amazing views! The trail is not maintained, but still very fun! Took 1 hour and 17 minutes to complete

Great loop that could be made longer if you take the green mountain connector trail. Had the dogs with me today! Still some snow in the woods.

Slushy hike in the snow. Quiet and beautiful

Hiked this with my dog for the second time this past weekend after the snow, and it was just as beautiful as the first time! The weather was drizzly in mid-October but the fog made the forest so beautiful that it was well worth it. After the snow this February I got a later start than usual (around 11:30AM) but it turned out to be absolutely perfect. The sun was wonderful since it was obviously cold, and there weren't too many people on the trail. It does seem a bit longer than 11 miles but that could also be because it was pretty cold/not great weather each time I went; I haven't actually tracked the distance myself. This has quickly become one of my favorite day hikes, and I will definitely be trying to camp on the trail one of these days soon. The scenery on the way up is gorgeous, and the view from Precher's Rock is worth the trek, although it's hard to stay up there too long because the wind gets to whipping pretty hard.

This has been one of my favorite hikes in the Cohutta for many years. Unfortunately, the blowdown is getting so bad, if no maintenance is done, it will probably fall to the waste side in the next year. Damn fire! Have a good GPS and be ready to scramble and bushwhack.

This is a must do. Moderately challenging trail. It would be kid friendly for ages 8 and above. Bridge is out but creek can be waded across but there is a large tree across the creek to the left of the bridge that was fun to cross. I am 64 and had no trouble crossing on the tree. The waterfalls are spectacular. My wife and I loved it. We only saw one other couple on the trail. We went in February when the temps were 70 degrees and sunny. The Forest Service road where you access the trail is easy to miss so watch carefully. We will return with family and friends.

This trail was very pretty. Mainly walking through the forest with lots of ups and downs. There are two or so good views. The Hike Inn at the top of our loop was very neat and had refreshments and a donation jar, it would be really cool to stay there! I would suggest going up on the blue trail and coming down on the green, makes the trip down faster!

Like everyone said, lots of trees down when you first start out on the trail on the BMT side. Lots of cardio and a steep incline to begin with but downhill after that to the swinging Bridge. After the swinging Bridge you walk a gravel path Road back down to the parking lot. A good 6 1/2 mile hike today.

This is moderate to hard hike some overlooks, interesting plants. Rhododendron tunnels and creeks. Hike Inn is a good place to take kids to enjoy Nature, very well traveled

I agree with previous review, awesome section. We actually started at Tesnatee Gap and all the way to Unicoi was 16.5 miles with a side trip to Low Gap Shelter. We did not see one other hiker the entire day. Coming down Blue Mountain was no joke, very rocky terrain, but we took our time and made it out. No summit views, but a lot of beautiful views of the mountains through the trees.

Great hike! A few trees down in the beginning. Well traveled path. The swinging bridge is another trail close by- we did both.
