Impressive stone bridges, stairways, and retaining walls. Starts and ends behind the lodge. Passes near lower shelter and north lookout tower.
DECENT HIKE. GOOD FOR KIDS AND BEGINNERS. A FEW CHALLENGES MOSTLY STAIRS, SO IF NOT A STAIR CLIMBING INDIVIDUAL THEN YOU SHOULD START AT THE NW ENTRANCE SO THAT YOU DECENT. ROLLING HILLS
WITH SOME AREAS OF ELEVATION. LOOK OUT POINTS WITH GREAT VIEWS GIVING THE PARK ITS NICK NAME "LITTLE SMOKIES". TRAIL IS 2 MILES AND TAKES APPROX. 1 HR. DEPENDING ON YOUR TRAIL SPEED.
The trail was awesome. Lots of beautiful sites along this trail.
Easy to moderate. Had to cut 2/2 mile off due to debris across wide swatch. It looked like a beaver dam.
Passes behind lodge and cabins with a couple of stone bridges and walkways. Not much elevation and also passes near lower shelter and the North Lookout Tower which I recommend you try for great views and pictures. There are two starting points, if you don't like climbing up stairs, start at the W/NW point begininng with the stairs, as you will be descending, otherwise, you will be climbing up at the end of your hike. Nice little loop trail for beginners, around 2 miles and 1 hour in length, depending on stops.
