Beautiful walk behind the Sugarlands Visitor Center. The trail is flat with some nice labels for tree and plant identification. We completed this hike in the evening after business hours near dusk so it was fairly empty. I would imagine during peak hours this trail is super congested.

A little buggy and got caught up a bit in the midst of some students on a field trip. The paved path was an awesome option for a stroller and our multigenerational group. Nice stroll by the stream.

We stopped here just to say we did a hike every day while in the Smoky Mountains. We are glad we did as it had a lot of things to see in a small package. Very easy walk and is good for wheelchair access. The trail is now paved.

Super quick and easy. Can take side trails down to river and spend time on the rocks. Pretty quiet. Easy for kids.

A short and very easy trail through the woods that follows a pretty stream for part of its loop. A good family trail for those with small kids or seniors with some mobility issues.

Beautiful for such a short trail. It's so easy, it might as well be paved. If you have young children or aren't physically able to reach other waterfalls, you'll find this one satisfying. The well-worn path crosses a bridge and follows and meandering creek.

Great trail for a quick walk with the kids right outside Gatlinburg. Sidewalk the whole way, accessible for strollers or wheelchairs. Some interpretive signs along the walk.

This is a short, enjoyable trail not far from the sugarlands welcone center. It is a very nice blacktop trail which provides access for wheelchairs and the disabled. I would urge anyone who is not able to take the more demanding trails of the GSMNP give this a try.

Great for kids. We did this with our three under the age of 6 at the time plus our friends with three kids the same age. It's a nice intro for young kids. Flat & shaded the entire way & lots to look at.

The short trail right outside the Sugarland visitor center, nice when you have a few minutes to kill while waiting on friends/family inside the visitor center.
