Emory Gap Trail is a 2.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Wartburg, Tennessee that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
Went with our 5 year old. Beautiful hike, beautiful waterfalls - Debord, and Emory Gap. Had a picnic by Emory falls. Will have to go back when it's all green.
Great trail, even if you aren't in top fitness condition as I am not, I had no problem doing this trail. Granted at the end I certainly knew I had exerted energy but I was not sore the next day or anything like that. I would say this is an easy trail, one spot has a steep rise but it's short and easily done just might need to stop a few min to rest depending on how exerted you feel but the waterfall at the end makes it all worth it. Highly recommend this trail especially for families and schoolage children.
Waterfall was completely dry in mid-October. First mile is easy (wide and flat) and then it gets more interesting :)
I don't know why this trail is rated moderate. It's very flat and wide. Probably one of the easiest trails in Frozen Head State Park! Always lots of family traffic on weekends. The falls are beautiful and a lot of families bring there younger kids to play there during the summer.
Great equal parts of flat and climbing. The waterfall at the top is worth it all.
Excellent hike in the early Spring, especially if you like wild flowers! The trail is wide and easy It runs beside the North Prong of the Flat Fork the whole way. There are lot of picturesque waterfalls long the way, but don't miss Debord Falls, which is about half way. It' a great hike for beginners! I imagine it also be a great hike for the fall when the leaves are turning!
We incorporated this into our loop to the lookout tower atop Frozen Head Mtn.
