Just finished this trail with my son. Loved the views, the trail itself is fairly well maintained. There are a couple of water crossings that are best done barefoot or with very tall waterproof boots. The Falls we only found by accident. They are well off the trail and getting to the bottom was a bit difficult. Definitely worth it though! The trailhead is difficult to find. After crossing the bridge we nearly gave up until we waded downstream a ways and found it. since we live less than 30 minutes from this trail, I see us hiking it again!

Love going out here. Kid friendly.

moderate hike, beautiful waterfall and river!

I am not an experienced hiker by any means. Coming from the Knoxville area the GPS took us on a dirt road through the mountain, not the worst of dirt roads, but after we left we took the path. that was an extra few minutes, very scenic drive by the way. Now about the trail and falls. The hike itself was fairly easy, we got there fairly early so there was very few people there, seen maybe 10 total before we made it back. The signage could be better and more helpful. We decided to hike a little beyond the falls and that ended up being a very long detour, ha. not an awful detour but I was never certain where I was. Having a map on hand or a small map at the signs could have been helpful. There was a small amount of trash around, but nowhere near as bad as some of the other reviews from years ago. There are numerous trails that are accessible at this location, so the hike can go from easy to moderate fairly easy if someone wanted it to. Worth the drive and time spent here.

Fantastic hike. I logged a little over 11 miles up and back and it took close to 5 hours. I went off the beaten trail a lot and looked at the wild orchids and many different Trillium species. If you really like wildflowers, this hike is for you!

This is my favorite hike in the Tri-Cities area of east Tennessee. I would def rate this a moderate hike since its an uphill climb most of the way. There are 2 separate waterfalls that are well worth the hike. U can drive thru the campground and go all the way towards the back of the campground and there is a small gravel lot that is safe to park in. The trail starts right behind the lot and keep to the right and u will be well on ur way. The wildflowers this time of year are stunning!

This trail is actually 11 miles round trip, not 9. It's a good hike with 2,000 feet in elevation gain. Not too scenic. I think some sections may be a little difficult with the overgrowth of vegetation. I really enjoyed it though.

This is a perfect trail for a light workout. I use it often.

Parking situation changed. See my track recording!

I really enjoyed this hike. Very scenic. It does get pretty steep sometimes, but definitely worth it.

Nice hike. Not too long, but a bit more strenuous than we expected. Waterfalls were spectacular.

Great short hike. Not too hard. Waterfalls are beautiful and fun to climb around on.

this is a very nice 3 mile trail, that circles Indian boundary lake. I have spent a lot of days walking,and mountain bike riding here.

GREAT HIKE PRETTY EASY DONE IT TWICE

Great half a day hike! Waterfall absolutely spectacular. Moderate hike are some tricky parts you have to climb up to the waterfall.
