Hike itself isn’t anything out of the ordinary, but Bobs bald is a solid place to relax and camp. Had a great time.

Relatively easy hike to Benton Falls and back. The rocks the trail were challenging and hurt after a full five hour hike. Shared the trail with mountain bikers.

Wonderful hike! Very good aerobic workout for us 50 somethings! What a payoff!!

Crisp fall day, leaves crackling underfoot, views into the Blue Ridge and across to the Cumberlands—nice hike today. Reminds me of the lower section of Sunkota Ridge in the GSMNP—walking right along the ridge with views to either side. The ‘bald’ is now grown up with birches and beeches, but it is still a good trail for solitude and scenery.

An easy walk. The day we hiked it was a nice, quiet walk in the woods which is just what we were lookiing for—no spectacular scenery, no astounding aspects. The attraction is the river and the rocks.

Excellent trail. Well maintained. You can get a great flow going.

Good luck getting up the road unless you got a jacked up 4 wheel drive. Had to back my truck down the hill 100 yards.

This bad boy is definitely strenuous and can be dangerous due to the loose terrain and slope. But it's worth every bit of the hike
