The best is at the top. It is an incline make sure you wear appropriate shoes and bring water. May be steep for young children. Saw one daily with a wagon, probably not a good idea.

Quick, fairly easy trail that I enjoy doing.

It was a fun quick hike, but I went right after a heavy rain so the lower portions of the trail were still ultra soggy

Not a hike, but a continuous climb "less than 8% grade" according to one of the info signs.
Boring except for the view at the top.

Great trail for hiking it’s easy there’s a couple steep places. Great for kids, grand parents hiked it with our whole family.

Fun hike. The kids love the idea of standing in and seeing three states at once.

This trail is connected via Wilderness Road Trail. The elevation climbs quickly, but easy enough. The view is spectacular.

Good little hike. Safe for children but the incline is significant. Great views at the top, otherwise fully wooded. A couple of cool little sites to see on the way. Moderately trafficked.

Nice hike; involves some climbing but nothing too hard. I would rank the difficulty moderate rather than easy. Passes several interesting historical sites including (obviously) Cumberland Gap but also Fort Foote, the site of a Civil War-era fort. The view from the gazebo atop Tri-State Peak is not that impressive: the clearest sight lines are to the northwest where a power line sits directly in front of you.

Was a nice hike for a good mid-day work out. We ventured further to Tenn. trail to a see some Civil War earthworks. This extra trail was a bit more challenging.

Great hike if you are looking for a quick one. There is a small climb for the last little bit (~0.2-0.3 miles) but still would say one of the easier ones in the park.

Me and my dog hiked this trail starting at the Iron Furnace in Cumberland Gap, TN. Pretty easy trail. Gets a little steep toward the end, but it pays off with a nice view of Middlesboro, KY. There's a guestbook to sign and a little pavilion commemorating where KY, TN, and VA all meet. Would recommend!

My family and I LOVED this! The hike wasn't hard and with the shade tress and berries along the way we hardly noticed the heat. A little dip in the falls made it fun.

Have hiked this trail several times. Beautiful view at the top where you can stand in TN, VA, and KY at one time. Well maintained trail. Saw a deer the last time I was there.

love the view at the top

The view up top is really neat and totally worth the rough trek uphill. Be warned though, it's a struggle if you're not in shape. You'll be huffing and puffing before you get to the top!

Easy, light Hike - Have done this several times when working in Lee Co., VA. Its a nice hike to bring people on that are inexperienced, out of shape :), or want a quick awesome view.

Pretty good trail for family and kids. Uphill, but it's all gravel and well taken care of. It was a rainy day when we went, but it still worked out well. Went down to Pineapple Tea Room afterwards... Highly recommend.

Me and my brothers went for a quick hike today and selected this trail. Very easy hike but some awesome picture opportunities. If you are looking for a good spot to trail run I'd recommend this one.
