this trail was super fun and super slippery on the way down, but sooo worth it! oh and bring lots of water we totally underestimated ourselves and ran out before we got to the top which sucked but everything went well regardless

The GPS for the trail head in this app for this hike is wrong!! It is route 107 to Clark’s Creek Rd, continue into the National Park and up gravel road. It’s a nice short hike. The GPS coordinates for the parking area are N 36° 7.812', W 082° 32.156'.
Happy hiking!

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.
