Did a five day hike with a group in early March 2017 and started on this trail. It was a great trail to begin with.

Short, sweet, and gorgeous. If you want a secluded hike, this isn't for you, as it is highly trafficked. There are picnic tables at the bottom and bathrooms, making it a nice touristy stop on the parkway. The park Rangers on staff were helpful and provided recommendations for other hikes in the area along with a map.

Hot and dry summer of 2016.

nice short hike, not good for climbing or bouldering. i think my 70 year old grandma could do this hike, but it was really pretty, so if you are looking for something short and not difficult, just to get out in the mountains- this is a really good hike for you

Smooth path uphill to the best view of the Smoky's I've seen yet

Beautiful views of the Parkway, great place for stargazing in the warmer months.
