A nice shorter trail. Lots of rocks and roots to turn ankles so watch your footing. A beautiful creek and mill. Look for a tree the woodpeckers have had a feast on.

Our first time on the trails In Tennessee and we needed a quick little loop to do. This was fun to do with our 9 yr old and his buddy. Nice stream and old structures are pretty cool to look at.

Beautiful trail, easy walking. We had a deer walk along the path ahead of us for a while.

Very rocky terrain makes this .75 mile loop quite strenuous. Great view of Le Comte river about halfway through. Wear bug spray! We saw a red salamander.

great trail for parents with kids, dogs. berries and bear tracks we're cool

Very beautiful trail alongside a small river!

Not a long hike, but packed full of great history. The mill was stunning!

Great little hike!

Great 3 day backpacking route: Day 1: 11 mi climb through Hen Wallow falls to camp site 29. Day 2: 15 mi including Mt Cammerer fire tower and descent to camp site 34. Day 3: 7 mi easy descent.

Enjoyed hiking this trail. it was the perfect length to do with my 4 and 6 year old. Went off on a conne ting trail to add about half a mile and saw lots of deer.

This hike is on an old road bed. It is a very easy hike. We have been to many waterfalls in the smokies. This might be my least favorite. If you are an avid hiker who enjoys being in nature. This is not the hike for you.

This trail would probably be great with kids or folks who want to be in nature without exertion. We found it to be pretty boring - a pretty flat, straight trail running next to a creek. It is pretty protected from the rain which was nice, but the falls at the end aren't a huge payoff. If we had more time, perhaps the Cucumber Gap loop would have been nice, but otherwise, I'd steer away from this unless you're looking for VERY low key. Bring bug spray.

The hike is a very nice stroll with pleasant views of the river.....it had rained some the day before so the waterfall was really nice.

bit too long for a 5 yr old, decent views of the river most of the hike, but nothing glorious.. not quite worth the effort

I would recommend this trail to anyone interested in waterfalls. this is one of the best waterfalls in the park (having done them all). it is a well trafficked trail so if youre wanting to enjoy the waterfall in solitude you'd need an early start. it took our group of 9 an hour each way. there is plenty of seating area at the waterfall to picnic and envoy the scenery.

This trail was one that I actually loved. I am overweight with bad knees and was able to enjoy it while still being challenged. It was rocky and wet in some areas so you have to maneuver carefully. Very pretty stream along the path.

The second creek crossing was pretty muddy the day I went but not bad if you watched your step. Nice little trail.

gps takes you Elkmont. the trail little river trail, takes you to starting point of Husky Trail, which is 2.5miles to the starting point. if you just want to do Husky trail take New Found Gap road.

Great hike if you’re looking for a well manicured trail. Follows the river’s edge with plenty of calm pools to wade and splash. Lots of visitors while we were there, but it never felt cramped.
