Excellent hike. Good elevation changes. We saw a snake, accidentally stepped on a lizard’s tail and saw it break loose, lots of squirrels and chipmunks, of course. It was a solid 20 degrees cooler under the shade of the trees on this trail than it was elsewhere. 8&9 year old kids managed this one easily, but it was a little scary for their mom as they wanted to run downhill with large drop offs on one side of them. No such worry for adults. Just know if you’re taking kids you’ll want to be sure they’ll listen when you tell them to slow down.

nice hike, not too easy, but not too hard. I went on a Saturday morning and by the time I was done the park was packed.

Really nice trail for moderate elevations during a walk that doesn’t take a lot of time. I recommend it!

I only hike with my dog because
1. he's a german shepherd lab mix so he has all the energy. It helps to wear him out and helps me to "keep up"
2. He makes me feel safe.
I was excited to do the full loop but when I got there I sae the no dogs sign. I was sad but we did enjoy walking where he was allowed to walk. Parking was really difficult, not a lot of spots and very busy.

I love this hike to take family or new hikers. Tons of wildlife, great views of the lake. Good slight challenge with some elevation change. Very well maintained and conveniently near the city in a beautiful neighborhood.

A little busy when you are down by the lake but not bad once you get up into the woods.

This was my first time hiking in Tennessee and it was so gorgeous! Great weather, trails marked extremely well, and it wasn’t too busy. We went on a Saturday too. Loved every minute, we saw lots of wildlife like Turkeys, chipmunks, squirrels, a variety of birds and some turtles! And crazy looking mushrooms and foliage, it was a blast. 10/10 recommend.

Nice little trail

Parking is extremely hard at least during the mid day on the weekend, but great trail

Beautiful hike. The hill is a doozy! Take plenty of water. I am always astounded at how many people I see not carrying any water and who have no clue about the trail they are hiking. Your heart rate will climb on this one!

I hike this trail weekly and love it so much, but it should be noted it is not a hard trail by the overall rating standards. It is harder than some paths at Radnor, but it shouldn't be considered hard if you're comparing it to other legitimately hard trails in the Smokies or other TN State Parks. It is gorgeous, pleasant, and well kept.
