Made for a fun hour.

It certainly felt longer than 9.3 miles. Great trail, though. Wonderful scenery. Pack a lunch, as this will take 5 hours or more at a relaxed pace. The MST portion is more challenging than the old road, and the hike up Sam Knob, while not too difficult, requires some care. Poles were a big help.

stop here 9-26-17. stunning area, buck springs gap overlook is located at Mile Post 407.6. this overlook has a lot to offer. not only do you get a super overlook that you have to walk 500 feet too but the another 10th of a mile there is the buck springs hunting lodge that was built by george vanderbilt in the 1890s. yes, the same vanderbilt of the Baltimore mansion in asheville). there was a few outbuildings tool on being a spring house used to store perishable. sadly the lodge was removed in 1963 but some of the foundation and the spring house still exist. making this a bonus stop. bring a book, lunch or maybe some headphone to listen to some music while you enjoy the peace and beauty of this spot.

Really nice waterfall not much else

Although it’s a short easy hike it’s beautiful great for all

Look out for the bees! We got stung after going down a concrete slope, a nest was just off the left and our dog found it! Other than that, easy hike with wide trail, lots of narrow but sturdy bridges, good for dogs. Falls were pretty.

A lovely trail - made into a loop by following MTS and Buck Creek Lodge trail to Mt Pisgah Trail, then Campground Trail on the way back.

This is a beautiful waterfall, and the trail is doable for a solo hiker. You can stand behind and under the waterfall and the view is beautiful!

This easy to moderate hike is a short out and back type trail. Easy access and updated trail care with bridges and boardwalks make it and easy hike for beginners and families. The falls are a fun area for picture taking and wading in the water.

This was tough.

Great trail for families. People brought small dogs on the trail. Some steps, but very easy and well kept. Gorgeous views and lots of areas to break away from the trail.

I like this strenuous hike uphill along the creek. When I get to the top I come back down and avoid the gravel road loop which is boring.

Buckhorn to Avery Creek to Twin falls then stay on Avery Creek all the way for return and a short hike on gravel road back up to car. 5 miles

How is this even listed as a hike? Wide gravel roads? If you're looking for a swim amongst hundreds of vacationers, this is the walk for you. But it hardly qualifies as a hike.

Not a bad hike. Only a couple of nice view points of the mountains. Great workout though took me a little over 3 hours.

Recent rains so the trail was muddy in places but well maintained.

Love the Cradle of Forestry.

Very nice trail. not overgrown unless you cut off to the swimming hole. Nice scramble at the end to get to Twin Falls. Lovely little fall before that that you can go behind. Easy to get to trail head. Not crowded.
