Not good...

This is a great little trail. Be mindful of the numerous side trails though, it's easy to get off course.

For those of you who may not know, this trail is actually on private property that has been left available for the community to enjoy in the spirit of the original owner. It is not maintained by the county or any other government. It is maintained by the property owners that volunteer their property and invest whatever time and resources they have available in order for others to enjoy the beauty. So, before badmouthing how horrible it is to hike out there, you may just want to be thankful that the property owners allow you to hike there, as they have allowed this beautiful place to remain available for the community to use. Also, everyone hiking this area should have respect for the property owners by cleaning up after yourselves, keeping your dogs on a leash, and not destroying the beauty of the area!

This trail is absolutely beautiful and diverse. Iv lived here for 2 years and ran/hiked most trails atleast once and continued to skip this one because you can just drive to the falls and do other trails. But this will because a regular part of our Chatt tour for friends and family visiting. Additionally, I disagree that it is hard to follow the trail, there are maybe 2 areas you have to check the app or know what turn to take, and maybe once where you have to cross the creek to continue. Even with little rain in the last week or so the water was running and had several small waterfalls. We saw several small chipmunks, an owl, and a deer. There is a less beautiful area out towards the falls but the whole out and back is worth it, however if you don’t have time for the whole thing just go about a mile out and turn around and you will get the best of the trail. Much of the trail is along a beautiful rocky stream with a few houses and large boulder fields along the way. Don’t skip this one and enjoy!

Although the spring and small falls are beautiful, this is, arguably, the most poorly marked and maintained trail in Hamilton County and perhaps Tennessee that I have hiked. If you want to just see the Falls, I would say do it but to proceed further is not worth it. The trail narrows and, more than once, just ends in the woods. One has to really look closely while walking through the underbrush to pick it up again. I turned back about halfway because I lost it completely. Possibly, the map is incorrect.
