Beautiful trail with considerable incline the last mile to the falls. It is an extremely rocky trail with 4 creek crossings. Gorgeous waterfall.

A very nice hike especially in spring. I hiked today again at the beginning of summer.Less flowers more flies, but the waterfall still nice and flows well. The forest also pretty after you leave the camp area behind. Bring 2$, because you need to deposit it for parking

I've hiked this a couple times but it's not worth 5 stars. It's a decent hike to get out on for someone who doesn't mind some elevation gain. However, don't go just to see the falls because they aren't very big & it isn't nearly as impressive as other falls in the area. The trail is well maintained & isn't too crowded.

This is my favorite hike in the Tri-Cities area of east Tennessee. I would def rate this a moderate hike since its an uphill climb most of the way. There are 2 separate waterfalls that are well worth the hike. U can drive thru the campground and go all the way towards the back of the campground and there is a small gravel lot that is safe to park in. The trail starts right behind the lot and keep to the right and u will be well on ur way. The wildflowers this time of year are stunning!
