Muddy. Big bear ran across the trail about 10ft in front of me and gave me a solid scare.

Few people on the trail. Like someone else said, drive up closer to the trailhead (past the stables). The road is narrow and parking is limited but you can cut off walking up the gravel road. I also walked down to the Avery Creek trail and took a left and then completed the loop as indicated in the map. The waterfalls have some steep climbs up to get to them but are worth it.

Nice trail, but no views. My GPS had it at 6.97 miles. Has steep sections, but is not really bad. I would rate it moderate.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Incredible trail. Recommend driving past stables and parking up gravel road closer to two trail heads. We took first trail head (Avery Creek) to Buckhorne Gap (blue blaze to orange blaze) which finally lead to Twin falls. It can be confusing so have this one mapped out. The falls are incredibly beautiful, take some time to soak it in!

3 days 30.1 miles total we hiked south to north. Started at Davidson river camp ground and finished at Daniel Boone scout camp. Good water at Butter gap shelter, deep gap shelter, multiple water points around shinning rock and on the section between Daniel Boone scout camp and cold mountain. We parked one vehicle at each end so no shuttle service was needed. Camp sites all over the trail for the full 30 miles. Highly recommend camping on or around black balsam knob.

Just did the first 4 miles and back for a lil taste. Got some very nice rain. Up up up and then down down down.

Largely an old forest road other than the trail up to the first waterfall which is narrow and muddy, but the falls are gorgeous. Could not go past the second waterfall because a thunderstorm came out of nowhere so we needed to get back to the car quickly.

Why do it just one way when you can do it out and back? It’s a different experience each way and I recommend doing it both ways. We finished the trip in 2.5 days and though we had heavy afternoon rains all days we had a blast. It’s a rainforest so prepare for wet feet. Tons of big climbs so keep your pack light and you’ll have a much easier time. Water can be spotty in certain areas so plan ahead. Butter gap has a reliable water source. Likewise on the forestry road below the deep gap shelter (there’s also a few nice campsites down there since the shelter is closed with COVID protocols currently). After that the most reliable springs are around shining rock and easy to spot. There are a few water sources on there the trail between black balsam and flower gap but they are less consistent. Beyond shining rock there is no water until you are within a few miles of Daniel Boone unless you want to climb up cold mountain which has a lovely spring near the top. Campsites abound but campsite selection can make a huge difference so pay attention to local humidity and wind conditions. There is a temptation to camp in the open gaps up high due to their natural beauty but be prepared for wet gear from morning dew if you so camp up there. Even a moderate canopy overhead will help insulate you and mitigate condensation in the morning. And don’t forget that bear canister! It’s closer to 32 miles each way, btw, and if you detour to shining rock and cold mountain (which you absolutely should) it’s closer to 35 miles each way. Pack light and enjoy.

Yeah the hike back is no joke. I would do this one again if purely for cardio...the lake campsite is nice, but I've seen better views.

Awesome hike! Took three days going northbound. Water was pretty sketchy/intermittent between the Deep Gap shelter and Shining Rock. The only spot where the trail was a little tricky to find was at the intersection with the Cold Mountain trail but otherwise it was super easy to navigate.

This is a great hike. We decided to hike straight to the falls and then back out. We passed on taking Clawhammer. This was just barely short of 5 miles. The blazes can be a mess. There are some muddy spots, but is a wonderful hike. The falls at the end are beautiful. Was fairly busy on the Friday before the holiday weekend.

Great hike up to Flat Rock falls (think that's what app listed them as) steep, but so worth the hike. other falls were assessable by gravel/grassy road, which was a bit more sunny that I expected. We couldn't see where the 4th falls were, only found 3. App cut out for a bit, surely download maps since not really marked. We saw a Timber Rattlesnake on the crossing the grassy path on the way back to our car. Enough adventure for one day,

This was the longest mileage and # of days for me so far, and it was crazy difficult. Granted I was not well trained for such a strenuous hike - I imagine if we had a few similar hikes under our belts it would’ve been more enjoyable! No bear encounters, just sang a lot of songs on the trail and were smart about food storage. Rented a bear canister from French Broad Outfitters in Asheville and it was big but good for 2 people for 4 days (2 half days and 2 full). Beautiful views, difficult climbs (we did it Southbound) but worth it for the bragging rights.

We were able to see four different waterfalls: Log Hollow, Kissing, Discovery and not sure the name of the other. Lots of straight up the mountain hiking. It was about 4 miles total for all four falls. We hiked with our 11 month old baby and Malinois. Moderate difficulty and overgrown in some areas. We like that it was more secluded.

Easy trail. 4 waterfalls. The 2nd waterfall that has a trail going up- it’s a little hidden but that will lead you to the upper falls!

Going up the Art L was typical Pisgah forest. Going down on the North Slope Connector was enjoyable with lots of fern covered areas.
