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.
