This trail has tons of places that you could stop and take a swim. A lot of pretty moss growing on trees that have to be hundreds of years old, and tons of pretty river views. Make sure to take the extra mile to see Sycamore Falls! Bring some good shoes because though it's not difficult there are a lot of big rocks.

Amazing hike with breathtaking views every two steps. Save time to just look. Didn't think we were going to be able to go as there was a 45 minute "pop up storm". The trail had pools of water to walk around but it gave everything a clean feel with a lush green glow. The only thing to be warned about is there are a number of rocks you are climbing on/over/around and were they slippery! We were fine but again, need to take it slow. I would not recommend for families with small children, bad knees or old shoes. :)

One of the best day hikes in TN. Crystal clear blue holes, breathtaking waterfalls, and mossy serenity make for a definite hidden gem.

Beautiful, sound of rushing water the whole 2 mi. Rough ridge walk, but short and scenic.

My favorite loop trail and a favorite in general!! You can't go wrong with this trail. It follows the Fiery Gizzard creek, so you have gorgeous views of the babbling creek and several waterfalls. There are also 3-4 blue holes for swimming. There are plenty of places to stop and just enjoy sitting along the water, so pack a nice picnic and make it a day. This trail's rating recently changed here from easy to moderate, which was necessary. This trail contains some narrow passes and steep spots where you need to be sure footed. Nothing challenging for most, but I saw a family there Labor Day weekend with their elderly grandmother and she was having trouble making it the whole way. I am glad the rating changed to reflect a more accurate difficulty level. Lastly, they cut a new trailhead about two weeks ago. The wildlife are still adjusting, and on my last outing a perfectly camouflaged baby copperhead was laid out across the trail. He quietly moved along when shooed. Don't be too concerned, just be vigilant on this part of the trail til the critters get used to it. Enjoy this amazing place!!

Lovely trail with a few small waterfalls. Lush greenery and cute bridges. The color of the water at the falls is a beautiful shade of blue.

Great water spots, cave and scenery. Some tougher areas to maneuver, due to rocks and roots, with little ones.
