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.

It is a moderate trail with loose rocks copious roots and some unstable areas. Wear appropriate footing and be prepared to climb significant stone inclines.

Short easy-to-moderate loop with several small waterfalls. Well-marked and moderately trafficked. The first 0.8 mile is a fairly routine walk in the woods. The next mile is an unbelievably beautiful creek side hike. One of the best little loops in TN.

Fun trail that didn't take too long with the family. There are a couple small waterfalls on the day loop that were pretty. Moderate traffic for a Tuesday.

Beautiful trail. I want to do it again when I have more time. Got sidetracked onto the Fiery Gizzard trail, but it was wonderful. Can't wait to return.

This is a great trail that doesn’t take very long for the amount of little falls you’ll see.

We went with two six year olds and they had no problems. The hiking aspect is not hard, but you do need to be aware that the paths are not very wide and are often on cliff edges. There are quite a few places where falling would be disastrous. Keep kids within arm’s reach.

Be sure to stop and look around from time to time. It’s easy to miss some of the beauty when you spend so much time looking down at the path.

Again, it’s not a “hard” trail but it definitely is a “be careful” trail.

Great trail with a lot of variation. Tons of places that you could stop and take a swim. I went during the winter (January) but it was still beautiful as a lot of the trees are conifer. A lot of pretty moss growing on these 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 and I could see beginners having some trouble.

I agree with reviews of it's beauty but think the level should be more of mild moderate than easy due to narrow rocky parts

No shortage of beauty on this loop. Very fulfilling hike with all of the swimming holes and constant sounds of the stream. Was a blast watching people jump from the falls into the aqua blue water. This is a must see trail for those looking for a short but gratifying hike!
