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.

Amazing views at the top, everything looks so surreal and truly makes you think you're looking at a picture. Fairly easy hike but wouldn't take children as it might be a little too difficult for young ones.

Hiked this trail on 10/19...started early and glad we did it started to get more crowded as the day progressed. took our lunch to enjoy the falls a little longer. It is a moderate trail....a couple of inclines but a nice hike.

Great hike with a slow incline. The trail follows a small river that’s beautiful. Be sure to check out the waterfall at the 4.25 mile.

Very good hike. Moderate: a lot of strenuous climbing, but not exactly straight up the whole time. A lot of stairs toward the end (within the last half mile). Very crowded, even when we got there early (9:30 AM). Very clean trail, and easy to navigate. Stunning views from many different vantage points. Well-worth the climb!

Great hike with lots of views of the river. Parking is minimal but worth it. The falls are picture perfect and there and several other areas where you can get down the the river.
