Nice walk (not hike) along the River, but runs along a highway the entire way. Well maintained.

Beautiful trail. River and falls were so lovely. Enjoyed a nice sandwich on a rock while listening to the water flow by.

Nice trail, very easy. Unfortunately people let their dog poop on the trail and don’t pick it up so watch out for that.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike, but Little River Trail is more of a loose gravel road (which in my opinion is harder on the feet) and much more traveled as people are only heading to the falls. The views along the trail are beautiful though. We started in the parking lot further up and I agree with other comment. It’s not marked all that well but we found our way, whether it was actually on the trail or not.

Overall very good. The forest smelled fabulous! Need to watch your ankles, as there are definitely a lot of roots. The river running alongside the River portion of it was beautiful. We only saw a couple people along the way and did see some turkey. The incline can be difficult for beginner hikers or people with asthma, so do consider that. Took us a little under 3 hours.

HikingGreat!

We hiked this trail on 9/6. BEWARE the trailheads and signs in Elkmont Campground are not good, plentiful or accurate in several cases. That being said, this was a gorgeous trail. We lucked into following it correctly and the forest was just magical. Once you get to the Little River section you are walking along the river for about 2.5 miles on flat terrain and it is breathtaking. Definitely find a little spot to go and sit by the river. Next time we will swim.

The trail was exactly as expected - mostly flat, wide path along the river. Great for getting our dog out for some exercise, she loved stopping in the creek. If you’re looking for somewhere close to town for a walk or run, it’s not bad! We parked near the Sugarlands Visitor center to avoid going into town.

Overall, the trail was okay. If you begin at the Visitor Center, the beginning of the trail isn't great considering you have to walk on the road for a portion and past a service center. Later on, it got better with access to the creek for the dog to play in. You hear and see road traffic pretty regularly and is well used by other travelers.

About 5.9 round trip for us but we did a few side trips to explore. If you pack a lunch it is definitely worth a trip to the top of the waterfall. Very secluded and great place to hang out for a few and enjoy the falls.

HikingGreat!

Great intermediate trail and certainly worth doing. We walked it clockwise enjoying the river views and sound on the outbound half. Would have preferred if the actual trail didn’t feel like a forest service road but the overall pleasantness more then made up for it. The home bound half was a well canopied hikers pleasure with just the right grade for a light workout. There were other people out on a sunshiney and clear 65 degree late morning to early afternoon but never enough to make it feel crowded - Especially for a holiday weekend.

This is more of a nature trail between the river and the road. It’s dog friendly, which was why we went. I would not consider this a hike. This is a great way to ease your dog into hiking and get some photos of them in the water. Essentially that’s all this trail has to offer.

Easy trail. The creek had a calming effect. Great way to ease into our time in Gatlinburg.

During a crowded Labor Day weekend, this was a great hike with few folks. Followed the creek for the first few miles and then climbed through the forest. We enjoyed it enough that we will likely go back this week!

One of two trails that allow dogs in the park, which along with its proximity to the river are it’s only redeeming qualities. It follows the river but also the main road with lots of traffic noise. It also passes park maintenance facilities for a while and overall doesn’t really feel like nature with all the traffic noise.

This was a great dog friendly trail! It follows the river until you reach Cherokee. After you go under a bridge, there's a spot where some elk were laying. Went in the morning and there was a good amount of people.

Walked with my two children (9 and 12) and let them play in the river along the way. Would be better if there wasn't the road running nearby, or so many other people, but overall a nice trail.
