Wow! A group from my trainers gym did this today (06/16/18). We had previously completed a hike to Rocky Top via Lead Cave Trail. The previous hike was brutal, but it gave me a good perspective on this hike.

This hike is great. We took a dip in the water and had lunch at the falls. There are 2 major inclines on this trail, but it allows for adequate recovery. Depending on your physical condition, the last couple of miles back to your car can feel like they will last forever!

This trail is not for beginners!
