Tourist trap. Look elsewhere for a hike.

Easy and family friendly (touristy) but breath taking all the same.

Rock City is absolutely breathtaking and has a lot to offer! It is a very interactive place to visit with amazing overlooks. They have various events throughout the year to make your trip even more fun! It is entirely paved on a pathway. I went later in the evening in hopes of less foot traffic, but there was still heavy foot traffic. I would definitely check it out again. The only downside in my opinion is the pay to get in but I thought it was worth it.

More a stroll through rocks & gardens. Great views. Gets kind of weird at the end with Fairyland Caverns. Suitable for families with small kids.

Fun walk with the kids. Sights, and environment make up for how easy this walk is.

This is not really a trail it is more of a walkway. It's an interesting little walk. The view is awesome and the waterfalls are pretty. Not a hike though. More of a fun family outdoor activity area.
