My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape photographer.

The trail is typical Eastern US woodlands. Nothing special to set it apart from the other dozens of woodland trails in the Smokies. No epic scenic views. The only thing that sets this trail apart are the school and sister's cabins. If you like photographing log cabins and such is is the trail for you. I

if you are looking for scenic views, waterfalls, etc. pick another trail.

Having said that, I'll probably return in the fall to photograph the cabin with the fall foliage.
