I don’t know why I loved this hike so much. Maybe it’s the wildflower varieties. Maybe it’s reaching the summit with all the radio towers which I see every day. Took the summit trail, a straightforward hike to the top with moderate inclines and a few Rocky portions here and there. No shade so bring sunscreen! There’s one bench on this trail so savor it when you reach it! fEvery time I drive 101 and 280 I see those towers and remember my hike

First mike is paved road— not a fan. Went up to the Portola marker which gives this trail that lovely historical touch... a bonus

My favorite trail in the world! I'm a San Diego native so maybe I'm being biased. haha. I've hiked, run, and mountain biked through. Its an all around good summer time hike, and a spectacular winter wonderland when it snows.

The trail is pretty easy to hike going down to the falls. We saw some nice view from the top and some little falls but we never get a chance to see the big falls.. Going back its hards because its pretty steep. So far its not my favorite trail.. im a type of hiker to like to see the view of the mountains..

A beautiful easy walk, any time of year.

Its a great trail but a very hard and more inclined trail... once you got to the top OH man!!! Its so beautiful! The view is spectacular!!!

Watch your feet the whole time you are hiking or running. This trail Is filled with rocks of all sizes along the entire path,and tree roots. We did have a lot of fun hiking this one.

It was a pretty easy hike and the view is so beautiful

Awesome view from the top, and equally beautiful to walk around the lake from the bottom of the trail. Convenient but limited parking at the trail head.

Very lovely trail- first several miles are fairly flat and then it gets a moderate grade. This is the same trail head as a trail in this app called Echo Lakes Trail. Went first weekend of November 2019 and it was fully accessible by car with no snow- got really warm and sunny by mid day.

Beautiful hike. Conditions were good, no ice on the trail until you reach the lake and even then there’s only a tiny bit and it’s easy to avoid. The trail is quite rocky and wet, very slick at times.

Easy drive from Nashville and well worth it. This is a lovely trail that offers great views of the lake from varying heights as the trail moves along. I find that this trail makes for great exercise but is not too strenuous. It’s a nice trail to enjoy with your (leashed) pet too. Please always keep your pets leashed for their safety, the safety of wildlife, and the safety of other people and their pets!

Pretty trail. Trees grown up, so a little hard to see rock formations in some spots. Still a fine hike.

The trial head is a 1 min walk from the Fire House. The hike is marvelous. Like others have said, when you meet the fork in the road about 20-30 mins up, hang left and go up the Ravine trial to take advantage of the sweeping views when you gone down. Once you hike up some rolling hills with views of the water, the trial hugs the creek under the lush dense forrest. The stairs like another reviewer mentioned is no joke! At one point, you actually have to climb a ladder— it’s somewhat short and sturdy but still surprising. In short, you’ll definitely be huffing and puffing in certain spots. The half way point is up at the Panholl Campground parking lot, where you can use the bathroom and fill up your water. To start your decent, follow the road to views of rolling hills and sweeping ocean views. Love how varied the hike’s landscape is. One you’re done, definitely elongate you’re hike by walking an extra min for lunch, coffee, or a beach picnic in the quaint Stinson Beach. Not busy. Lots of shade.

Really loved this trail and so did my hiking pal, Bear, my Morkie. It made our whole trip. Road up is a little steep and rough, but doable, even for my little Chevy. Mini waterfall and great views get better once you reach the waterfall and continue on. I also found a cool little rough green snake. Great people on the trail today. I will do this trail again when I make it back. Everyone should experience. The trail is beaten in pretty good, so it's hard to miss; however, I felt the actual trail could have been marked a little better, apart from the few random side trails people made. Unfortunately, some people left some trash behind in the lot. Remember to pack it in, pack it out. Monday morning hike, so parking wasn't terrible. Lot was full when I got back to vehicle though.

the trail was a little hard to follow in spots you have to climb over a few rocks to get to the inner portion where there was a round bench. there are picnic tables by the parking area would be a great spot for a picnic on a pretty day.

Great workout! Plenty of upward climb! I recommend if you're doing the loop and not just an out & back, you take the right where the split for the loop begins and go down that hill towards the creek. You'll do most of the hiking before being rewarded with the great view towards the end of the hike. It's better motivation than seeing the view first and then all the wooded, hilly hiking. The trail is pretty well marked with white or red paint on trees. When doing the loop keep an eye out for that as leaves begin covering the less traveled trail. Also, when you reach the gravel road pay extra attention when looking for the reentry onto the trail. Both spots are marked with a sign, but can be easily missed if you aren't aware of where they are. Watch for rebar sticking up on parts of the trail anywhere near the lookout point and going down the hill from it. Due to erosion wood steps have disappeared, but the rebar is still there and sometimes hidden under the leaves. *when at the lookout, you can see Lexington's tallest buildings to the far right* Enjoy!!!

One of the hardest, one of the most rewarding, and one of the best hikes I’ve ever done. It is very uphill, and using the chains to get to the very top was very fun. 50% of the experiences of you, but the other 50% is the adventure in the struggle to get there. Totally worth it, I saw a 70-year-old man able to complete this, so there is no excuse.

One of my all time favorites in all seasons! Hiked 11/4 on a beautiful sunny day. Snow and ice on the east side of the loop, poles and yaktrax were helpful. Beautiful views of Rainier. Only met one other person on the trail.

Great trail, the creek isn’t difficult to follow if you are nimble. There are trails scattered around. I chose to continue to the ice caves. I won’t be disclosing how to get there. To Big Falls it was a quick hike. Possibly 40 minutes or so. It is completely dried up, and there is no water along the creek. So don’t expect a view. Carry on to Mary Jane Falls for the last trickle. And don’t try and find the ice caves, you can’t access them unless you’re an experienced climber and hiker. So going to the falls for the ice caves will leave you disappointed.

One of my favorite hikes we did in the smokies. Pace yourself going it up, it gets very steep towards the top. It’s a lot of work but with great reward. Beautiful giant tulip trees too. The scenery on the trail is amazing and the falls are absolutely incredible. We went a little slow and it took us just shy of six hours

Fantastic hike with a huge payoff waiting at the end. Good challenge the last mile. I could have sat with that view all day. Loved it. Going again.

Hard but so worth it. Very crowded trail especially on weekends. Start early and enjoy the views at the top. Careful during fall/winter of ice on the trail. It’s cold at the top so wear layers. Can’t wait to go up again!

Great trail, not as crazy as people make out. Took my springer for a good 10 miles before turning back. Leaves nearly all fallen, Trail is well marked. Spotted a few stags and some bear sign.

I went for a run on this trail yesterday and really enjoyed it.
