The trail is washed out in many areas. Can’t hike/bike the entire length.

Hikes this aith mt wife last October. We loved it!

Great trail for walking your dog. Not too long and not too short. Last half mile was confusing so we walked on the road.

Excellent hike along the river. You pass several swimming holes. Great for families!

Get there early to avoid crowds

slightly challenging but fun! it was muddy and humid when we went but nothing unbearable. Wearing dri fit clothing helped with that. There were about 5 campsites along the trail before the warerfall that I think would be great to stay at.

Like previous reviewers, I want to emphasize that this route is only the rim trail, and nothing beats getting one of the 100 per day passes they issue in the visitor center to hike for the gorge floor. That is where you will find a really fun rock scramble along the river, and where you find Sliding Rock, a giant, natural water slide. SO FUN! We arrived about 9:30 on a Tuesday morning one July and had no trouble getting a pass. The climb back up out of the gorge is also a fun challenge.

Short but uphill hike to the falls. One bench about halfway up to rest. Path is well maintained. Falls are pretty but I thought they would be bigger. Lots of white rhododendrons in bloom first week in July.

great easy trail for kids :) we had out of town guests and this was a perfect trail to fit everyone's skill level.

An AMAZING trail if you’re a sucker for water and nice views.

Scenic dog friendly trail. Clean paths. Nice lake views.

Easy drive to trailhead. Short, easy hike. Refreshing cold water! Will return with more people to enjoy!

Relatively easy and short hike to the overlook. Beautiful views and trail is well maintained. Dog friendly. Outhouse available in parking area.

Loved the hike- especially the waterfall!

Very nice place to hiking

Took the family. We went to the falls, then a bit up the Benton-Mackey for only a total of ~2 miles. Nice little hike. The falls was the best part.

This trail is very cool but make sure you wear pants because there is a lot of poison ivy and the weeds are really high in some parts

This was our first trail to backpack overnight. The scenery is beautiful. It is a pretty hard trail the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles. There are 4 campsites. The campsites just have a flat spot for your tent and a fire pit. The only complaint was that campsite one was not marked and was right on the trail. The trail is a little grown over at places with tall grass and poison oat so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and bring bug spray. This is black bear country so be smart. We will definitely be returning.

Beautiful hike !

half of the trail is on graveled road which is not fun to walk on. a portion had had a recent burn and was grown up with weeds. and there was no waterfall on the red trail which is the one marked on the map. do not recommend.

Very fun and scenic trail

Great overlook of the river.

A fun hike, but it lacks a view and a “payoff” for the climb.

Great hike with waterfalls along the way. The main waterfall is near the end. The whole hike is worth it if you climb the cliff and see what’s behind the waterfall inside of the cliff. There are additional waterfalls that you can see from the top of the rocks- it’s a very difficult climb but worth it. Also- climb down to the waterfalls along the trail. You’ll get soaked, but they’re worth it.

Great hike for newbies like myself. I would consider it easy to moderate due to the gradual incline but rough terrain. The trail follows a stream the entire way which allows for beautiful views of several small cascading falls and areas to cool off. The view of the cliffs are amazing especially for someone like myself from Florida.

Great easy trail alongside Moccasin Creek with several waterfalls!

Long Creek Falls is well worth the short hike in. It's quite the popular place on the weekends when the weather is good, so pick and choose when you go.

This trail is a must do. You get to see the first blaze on the AT with a incredible view on top of Springer mountain and then you'll follow a incredible creek with mutable waterfalls .

Be forewarned. There is no trail that’s actually called Rocky Face Loop Trail. To do this loop, start at the trail marked “Big Rock Trail”. It heads up the ridge. About half a mile in you will meet up with the Creek Trail. Follow it to the left to eventually make a loop back here. You can also take the Cascade Trail off of the backside of the creek trail that leads to a gorgeous cascade. I’d rate this entire loop as moderate. Nice morning hike.

my partner and I hiked this trail last weekend, it was cooler and breezy which made the hike very nice. Spectacular overlooks, changing terrain, waterfalls, mountains. We had a great time. We passed about 8 people in the entire 8+ miles, I think half of them asked if we had seen any bears, apparently bears are prevalent at fort mountain SP. We did not see any bears by the way...this is an excellent hike, we would do it again. It took about 4.75 hours to complete, and we stopped for lunch on the trail and at one of the overlooks. We like to hike at a pretty moderate pace.
