Short, but very steep hike leading to a waterfall.

Lots of water features on the way up. You can see it after a rain for the full effect, but you’ll pay the price with slick ascents (and some are steep!). I went on a drier day. Less mud and easier climbs and descents, but the water features were a little lacking. Take your pick. Still a lovely little trail.

Pretty good trail really steep and rocky , couldn’t go all the way but still a good workout. Almost missed the spot because it’s a little hidden.

Stunningly beautiful falls with six different places to view and enjoy. Get ready for lots of mud on the trail in spots, but it’s well worth it. Very steep inclines in spots, so you have to be very careful not to slip, twist an ankle, or tweak a knee. The cool breeze off these falls is a wonderful experience on a hot Summer day.

Nice trail! Beautiful water all along it. It is a little overgrown and steep in some places. Doable for most all skill levels. My 4 year old hiked the whole way and my 2 year old most of the way.

This was an awesome trail! It has about 5 different levels of this beautiful waterfall that you can just walk right onto! Take your time on the way up; it’s beautiful! The trail gets pretty steep in parts, but it’s SO worth it. The trail is well maintained and broken up well! Definitely my favorite hike in Tennessee by far! Enjoy!

It’s more than just a little steep in places. But also it’s more than a hike to a waterfall. The trail goes beside beautiful cascades the whole way.

This place was beautiful! I took my husband and small kids with me and it was the perfect outing for a sunny day. You walk along the creek and many falls along the way. Lots of bugs and a little mud so dress appropriately for that. Overall easy but steep.

THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE HIKE AND I WOULD RATE IT MORE ON THE EASY SIDE. ITS NOT OFTEN YOU GET TO SEE 2 TWO DIFFERENT FALLS MEET FROM TWO CREEKS. ALSO AS YOU WALK ALONG THE CREEK YOU GET TO SEE OTHER SMALLER FALLS ON THE WAY UP. TO ME THIS IS A WIN WIN. SO DON'T PASS THIS GEM BY.

As stated before, this is a short but steep trail. Because of the recent rains, it was well worth the hike. There are many photo opportunities if you are interested in that.

Delightful trail, a little steep and slippery in places but tons of waterfall action in a short half mile. Gorgeous.

As others mentioned, it’s short and steep; it is beautiful though. The water flows on top of the rocks the majority of the hike, very unique.
