What east TN represents well: waterfalls, peaceful woods surrounded by giant rock cliffs making a holler. Marked well with blue blazes.

We took a dog hiking on this trail and he loved it! It was snow covered and icy and gorgeous. Very easy and short.

It was a little rocky at times but overall pretty good. Not the best trail for just starting out. I was definitely feeling the burn.

From the parking lot, there's not much indication to take the gravel road (at least I didn't see any signs or markings), but we came to the trailhead sure enough. This was our first hike of our trip, and it was spectacular after a good rain! We brought our two pups and they had a blast crossing the creek and climbing the rocks. It definitely had a bit of challenge over the rocks, but it was a good quick hike. My husband, on the other hand, had a little more difficulty with a twice repaired ACL and meniscus.

We were the only people on the trail, luckily. We took our time and had a picnic by the Falls.

Wonderful hike! Very good aerobic workout for us 50 somethings! What a payoff!!

Trail marked as moderate....moderate +, closer to the Falls, the trail is rocky with larger rocks and boulders. We hiked in after a rain, the falls were beautiful.

One of my favorite trails, a bit strenuous but it's not too long. Took my mother in law here, she almost gave up but was so happy when she didn't and we got to the waterfall.

A nice hike with plenty to see. It gets a bit tough after the bridge...the trail there is composed mostly of rock sized between a pumpkin and a softball. Overall the trail is rather easy with moderate sections.

The hike was easy and the waterfall was nice. Nothing special. More of a warm up than a hike.

It was a beautiful trail, a little hard for me , because of medical history, but if I did it, anyone can

Pretty easy, just one area where you need to cross a creek.
