Difficult but amazing hike. The view of the waterfall at the top was well worth the difficult climb. First 1.5 mile was all gradual uphill, so not very difficult, but the last mile was very strenuous. Lots of climbing over rocks and roots, a little bit of water on the trail. It was all beautiful! Saw a mama bear with her two cubs about a mile into the hike, just 15 feet off the trail.

Our favorite hike so far. Words can't describe how amazing this trail is.

Beautiful waterfall but short hike and a little crowded.

I took Spicewood up and South Old Mac trail back. The .5 to the Lookout Tower is worth the views. Several downed trees along the path, but the crew is working to remedy this.

Beautiful hike. It is closer to 8 miles and an uphill climb the whole way in. I would not recommend this hike for a family outing or an easy stroll. I would also rate it difficult. I did not see any waterfalls though, can someone tell me how to get to those?

We went during late fall, the color of the mountain is AMAZING. The ground is completely covered with golden leaves, the valley was decorated with green, yellow, and garnet. We enjoyed the view of the valley as much as the top! Fall is definitely a great time to go. With that being said, the fallen leaves can make the trail slippery especially when it rains. I wore my workout shoes and I slipped couple of times on the narrow trail (the other side was deep valley) and my feet was hurting stepping on rocks. So bring good hiking shoes. It took about 6-7 hours round trip, so start early and plan a whole day.

This is my favorite trail near Memphis. it is a very dense beautiful forest and filled with wildlife. It's much Hillier than you would expect. The bugs can get pretty bad sometimes so make sure you prepare!

Almost the exact same hike as Charlie's Bunion but a bit shorter and worse view in my opinion. The actual trail that goes up to the Jump Off can be hard to notice since the signage is not all that great but it is maybe 0.1 miles after you take a left at a split off and it will be on your right just after the sign. The view itself is pretty good but I found Charlies Bunion to be better. And if it is cloudy on the trail you probably shouldn't bother with the Jump Off since the view will almost certainly be blocked.

Probably my favorite hike in the park. Not too long and not too short. Has a few steep sections but overall fairly easy going and has great views on several parts of the trail. Only problem is that it can get rather crowded when the weather is nice.

Fairly strenuous trail that follows a very scenic creek. I have seen most of the top rated waterfalls/cascades in the park and I would say this is the best. Unlike the other waterfalls, I thought the trail itself was very enjoyable and not just the waterfall.
