Very easy walk along the river. Used heavily but well maintained. Favorite among locals. I have seen birds, squirrels, deer and elk while on this trail. Some people use this as a light jogging trail in the mornings like I did. Has a little bridge and a few benches to sit and rest on along the way. There are a few story boards on this trail that tell of the Cherokee history. This trail is easy enough for older folks too. There are a few access points to the river with small beaches and you pass under a bridge. Lovely little walk. Seems like only a mile and a half walk.
