Great day hike! Streams and rocks made it more adventurous but still friendly for all ages. Beautiful views and flowers would be beautiful in the spring.

Hiked to Devil's Den & completed Leatherwood Loop Tr on the way back. 8 mi. Majority is easy. Mod .6 mi section beyond the bridge to Devil's Den but this is the best section. Trail is well marked & maintained. Really nice waterfalls just before the bridge & .2 mi before Devil's Den. The O & W bridge is historical. Devil's Den a nice geo feature & camping site. An enjoyable afternoon.

I disagree with the "easy" rating. Starts out nicely enough but many rocks and roots make it challenging. I am disappointed that I needed to turn back but safety first.

Probably one of the most beautiful hikes that my husband and I have done in Tennessee! Plan to go back and camp! Simply beautiful. Pretty easy hike!

I love O&W in the Autumn, its beautiful. Also, if you want a challenging hike, do the Devil's Den. This hike is mostly up hill, take your time to enjoy the views, and for safety...but its well worth it. It's part of the John Mur Trail.

My husband and I hiked the 2.3 miles to the O & W bridge and got married in April. The trail is up and down on the side of the ridge above the wild river. Beautiful section of the John Muir trail.

Did the trail in the fall, temp. was approx 69. Awesome trail, and scenery wanted to go further but time constraints would not allow. This trail offers a view of everything.
