Great hike. All the uphill bits were pretty short and even out for a bit before the next uphill. We did the loop and saw both Falls. We stayed to the right at the fork, so did the loop counterclockwise. Was a little tricky finding the right way to go after the first falls, as you have to backtrack a short ways and then cut off to the right, but we figured it out. Shaded, and trail goes along the creek a good part of the hike. It was really lovely. The road was out about a mile before the turn off getting there so we had to turn around, ho back out to 68 and turn on Mountain Vista Road and work our way in from there. Don’t turn on Newman, as other reviewers have said.

My daughter and I hiked this trail a few days ago. We loved it! Fairly easy hike. We but a short video together of the hike. The end is really good!

Beautiful falls at the end of the trail, which is not a bad hike. pictures don't do it justice! shallow pool for wading/swimming. before Newman Road, look for signs to Turtle Town Falls, and turn on the gravel path. highly recommend.

The waterfalls on this trail were truly gorgeous. I echo everyone's reviews on it being hard to find and encourage you to screen shot some of the more logistics-minded reviews to help you get where you want to be. There was a storm not long ago so the trail was a little rough with some fallen trees, but nothing we couldn't manage. Like some others, we couldn't locate the loop connecting trail, but it was still a perfect, secluded hike.

Well worth the drive! We met 1 group of people on this hike. Got in our cardio on this well marked trail. The falls was just stunning! The directions on this took us to someone's house. There is only 1 sign for this and if you turn left on Newnan you have gone too far! Be looking for the brown sign on Farner.

Great easy trail to some beautiful double falls. Not very deep but a blast to romp around in with the dogs.

This is a great hike. We went on Sunday afternoon and only came across a handful of others hiking.
Be prepared to stop along the way to admire the views and play in the waterfalls. We took to the right at the first split- thank you for that advice. Returning from the lower falls at the split (left) for the loop there is a huge pine tree down right on the trail. Took us a bit of back and forth before we just cut across the woods to find the trail. The blaze is not well marked at this split.
We will definitely do this one again.
Be warned gps says to turn on Newman Rd then turn again on Newman B- that is not correct. Go pass Newman about 100 yards down you will see the brown sign to turn onto the forestry service road.

Beautiful falls. We went on a Saturday and saw 7 other people on the trail. It was worth the drive from the Knoxville area.
