Never got to see the trails. Take the "hard" rating of this trail seriously, we usually carry our 100lbs of gear to the site and 4 miles is about what we can do. We barely made it a mile and had to go ahead and set up camp. The trail rating is accurate.

Beautiful hike with friends years ago. One beautiful scene after another. Falls were amazing. Worth the ride. Leave it beautiful please!

Nice easy hike.

Have been doing this trail for many years. Nicely maintained !!! New configuration of trail much better than that from the late 80's. Cave at the end of the trail is easy if equipped right (3 sources of light and helmet) if only one light just poke around in the twilight of one of the three entrances. Lower entrance is among the most impressive in the state !!

Absolutely beautiful trail literally in my backyard!!

Great trail! Very well maintained and a new view around every corner. We completed this hike in a little over 6 hours, with a few snack breaks on the way. Will definitely be back when the LeConte Lodge is open!

Great trail, good conditions, great views of falls.

Great hard trail worth the work. Fun climb with narrow paths along mountain edges and deep woods alike. Warm on way up and really cool At top so make sure to pack layers as usual even in a warm day. Place to sit at top and rest before heading down. Took us just under 3hrs hiking vigorously without many breaks and under 2 back. Said no dogs but we did see a dog or two. There is a lodge up top in case you need it but it’s def feasible to get an early start as we did going up around 11 hitting top around 1:30, ate and quick nap at top, then back down by 4:30 before dusk. Great views and highly recommend.
