We had a great time on this trail with our two young kids. (6 and 3). They loved going across all the little creek bridges and checking out the beautiful brook! Took us a little over an hour with them. The kids said they were mountain climbing so it’s pretty rocky. Gorgeous trail.

Great trail. I would rate this as a moderate trail but there is little elevation change. Great for kids but not great for those with walking or balance challenges.

Kids enjoyed it for something different to explore.

Had a good time with family with 2.5 year old boy. Interesting and pleasant trail with lots of stuff to see along way. Lots of small boulders and roots however. Not hard, bur not for individuals with limited dexterity. Certainly not stroller friendly. Easy going besides that. Nothing to lose your breath over.

Walked this on 4/12; it’s not closed.
Spotted a couple of nice “jack-in-the-pulpit “ with other flowers emerging... should be more during the few days since. Amazing to view & study Ogle’s building skills of the house, barn & mill-stream area! Took ingenuity & perseverance to scratch a living from this boulder-strewn landscape.

This is one of my favorite trails near Gatlinburg. It’s easy to hike, beautiful scenery, and fascinating history. Our 3 year old had no trouble with this hike.
