The Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountains, have a wide range of elevations, making them home to over 400 vertebrate species, 100 tree species, and 5000 plant species. Hiking is the park's main attraction, with over 800 miles (1,300 km) of trails, including 70 miles (110 km) of the Appalachian Trail. Other activities are fishing, horseback riding, and visiting some of nearly 80 historic structures.

Great hike. Not to hard but good enough for great views of waterfalls. If want to see all three waterfalls go to left from parking lot at start of trailhead.

Great easy hike. Most of the beauty of this trail is in the 1st 2-3 miles as you follow a beautiful cascading creek. Steady but shallow climb out and all downhill back to the parking area.

Loved this trail. Great day hike. The plants and trees around the mountain are incredible.

This is an easy trail. Paved most of the way with great views. Nice for beginners.

Nice trail. Not very hard or strenuous. Today was really foggy so couldn't see much.
