Primarily old logging roads and wide horse trails. The creek and waterfalls made for an enjoyable hike.

We saw lots of wild flowers in bloom this last week of April: jack-in-the-pulpit, trillium, bishop’s cap, showy orchis, foamflower, and more that I am still learning. Some trillium blooms are hidden under the trademark three leaves.

This was a great 1 hour hike with several waterfalls and bridges! The trail was not busy (in early March) and was well maintained throughout. The trail head area has ample parking and amenities (restrooms, picnic shelters, etc.). This hike is very convenient to the Bryson City area.

We came to Great Smokey to go up to Alum Cave and Chimney Tops but 441 through the Park was closed. Per the Ranger’s recommendation, we headed to the Deep Creek area and it was incredible. The frozen waterfalls are so unique and I would definitely recommend this as a moderate winter hike.

The deep creek horse trail part of the hike is not interesting, just a wide path up and down the hill. Waterfalls are very nice though, even when it has not been raining in almost a month like now, early October.
