This trail is easy and in some places moderate. It traverses through woods and a few fields. There are some uphills and switch backs. Also it seemed like fewer hikers here compared to other surroundings trails (parking lot small with few cars at the time I went). There were two old dilapidated structures (sheds, barns or possibly dwellings). All in all it was a nice hike.

Beautiful, marked well, great trail for the whole family, dogs allowed (leashed)

Great trail, easy to access and has a great view

There is no trail here. Unless you count crawling thru rhododendron. Like on your hands and knees.

This was a very well kept trail. It was a steep climb but had a beautiful view at the end. There's 4 bridge crossings with great rock formations along the trail too. We started before 9 am and it wasn't heavily trafficked until on our way down closer to 11.

A tough hike for sure but a very beautiful waterfall reward at the end! I recommend having a hiking stick. I didn’t have one and wished I did the whole time I was descending. I will mention that at the falls there are tons of bees. They appear to be common honey bees and not aggressive but they were everywhere. I had intended to sit at the falls and enjoy a snack but I literally had bees crawling all over me. One was crawling down my boot even. None stung me but if you are freaked out by bees or super allergic then be advised.

Nice easy trail while camping and geocaching at Bandy Creek last week.

Did the north side of the stream trail which was not very well maintained so the next time I will do the south side that sounds like a better option on my next camping trip to Bandy Creek Campground.

Hiked this trail about a week ago. Great trail. This app would have come in very handy when I was camping with my four Shih Tzu companions at Bandy Creek. Lots of nice trails in the area but was only able to log about 27 miles worth before returning home. Hopefully I will be returning to the area in the near future for an extended stay and lots more hiking.

Love this trail, even in the pouring rain! I wish there were more signs on the trail to Myrtle Point. We saw a couple turned around after seeing a pile of rocks and so we did too. After talking to other hikers, they suggested to keep going. The view was priceless!! We took 3 hours up to LeConte Lodge and about 2.5 hours down to our car.

The trail to the base of the waterfall is a bit steep and gets really rocky at some points, but definitely worth it! Great area to swim too! One of my favorite hikes so far.

Great hike! Not too challenging and lots of pretty sights to take in. You can take your time or breeze through it!

Tried to do this trail counterclockwise, blazes were pretty poor. Could be a nice trail, but there are tons of unmarked side trails and it's pretty easy to get off the main trail. Got off the trail somewhere around mile 2 and had to double back, got fed up and left. May try again this winter, tons of spider webs. Saw 2 deer and a camper that decided to squat and pee right in the middle of the trail.

Paved pathways get very slick after rain. Otherwise great walk with minimal elevation and friendly people.

Do not hike this trail unprepared. Not the hardest hike I've been on but I've been on very difficult hikes. We ended up going 11.0 miles with 1890 ft of gain on a hot June day. Big laurel falls was cool along the away and the sheep Cave was cool as well. We went on a low water day so we were able to explore a little bit more. We ended up taking a little bit longer of a route so your trip may not be 11 miles. Unfortunately there was a bit of trash and a fire that wasn't put out all the way. So please be responsible for others and animals around you.

quick and easy hike with gorgeous views

Very short 0.5 mile hike that leads from a parking lot down to the river and a long wall of waterfalls that you can climb behind. Waterfalls were awesome and rocks at the river were large enough to lounge on. Very good trail for those that don’t want to spend all day hiking, but still want to see something cool. Trail is pretty wet as you are climbing down a waterfall the whole time along rocks, man made stairs and ramps with cable for support. Spent about an hour at waterfalls and then hiked back up and drove a little further to the very nice on site beach where you allowed to swim. Swimming prohibited on this trail. Wouldn’t have wanted to try anyway. Not worth the risk.

Great little hikel! The trail is rocky and could be tough if it were wet. The suspension bridge is awsome! My kids loved it!

Wonderful hike.

nice walking path

Had a good time with family with 2.5 year old boy. Interesting and pleasant trail with lots of stuff to see along way. Lots of small boulders and roots however. Not hard, bur not for individuals with limited dexterity. Certainly not stroller friendly. Easy going besides that. Nothing to lose your breath over.

the trail infrastructure was top notch. My son and i hiked to the top in 2hrs, hung out at the lodge and the cliff summit then took another 2hrs to hike down. Breathtaking views! maybe it was the hike up that took my breath ... lol.

The trail has a slow elevation climb to the top of the falls so you never have to worry about a steep climb. Hardest part of the trail were stepping over large rocks/tree roots. Trail is well maintained. There are some creek crossings so if it rains heavy the day before, you may get your shoes wet. We got to the trail at 9am and it wasn't crowded, took us 3 hours round trip and on the way back there were lots of people. I'm your average couch potato and I made the hike, but plenty of people were stopping along the way for breaks. Keep in mind there are some small falls you'll see along the way, so if you don't feel like you can make the journey and want to turn back, you will have still seen some beautiful scenery.

After a good rain this waterfall was amazing! We ventured out into the cave to find that waterfall as well♡
Definitely would do it again!

Steep but paved. Wide enough for a vehicle. Very crowded, but worth it for the view on top.

Too crowded. Not much to see. Time is better spent elsewhere.

Overall good experience. Had to turn back halfway due to part of trail being closed off. Very quiet. Our group was only ones on trail during that time.

Not a bad hike. The trail was a little overgrown and some areas could use more blazes but overall its not a bad trail. There are lots of hills but it isn't bad. It is closer to 9 miles when said and done. You must be comfortable with spider webs though because they are everywhere.

love this app. I travel often just to visit trails and this app makes it easy.

Beautiful and ready to go again
