Second time being here still a good trail somewhat tough in spots. Not a lot of water this time but it’s always good getting down to the Caney River to stay the night. Only downfall now is if you haven’t been in awhile make sure you call and make reservations if your staying over night. 3$ a night and a 5$ reservation fee. (423)-881-3297. But in all still a great trail.

My wife and I, our three teenagers, and our dog found this hike to be a great mix of elevation gains, forested ridges, and grassy balds. There were plenty of water sources along the way, as well as many different options for setting up camp each night. The views from the balds are amazing. Highly recommended.

This trail is moderate to easy with a few inclines. The trails are not clearly marked and it's very easy to get off track. I had to backtrack a few times and once I just cut across the terrain. The trail came very close to the campers at the camping sight... which I didn't like, but all in all it was a decent outing.

Deserves its reputation. Amazing. Wife and I loved it. Plan for 6-7h. Bad knees or ankles? Skip it until you’re healed. Rocks can be brutal...go counterclockwise on the second loop to make the back side easier. Eat your packed lunch at Werner Point - no people and I thought the views were the best there. You might not see it on a map, but it’s clearly marked on the trail. Enjoy!
