This was a great and challenging hike, totally worth the trip. It is moderately challenging, so be prepared. Bring lots of water and if you have hiking poles, I recommend bringing them too. The ascent took me about 3 hrs (with breaks) and descent 2.5hrs. Definitely stop at the lodge for lunch. They have bagged lunches with unlimited coffee/hot chocolate refills and a place to fill up your water bottle. If you're in decent shape, this hike won't be as difficult for you as many people commented. It's challenging, but don't let that deter you. The views were spectacular!

Beautiful !! Great for a day hike. Went to the upper falls. It is a bit treacherous. The trail runs the edge of the cliff in places and one place there is a rope to hold on to at a steep descent . Large hemlocks Bring a chair a great place to sit for hours

Fabulous hike! Beautiful trail with a river in the first half and amazing views at the top! Definitely a must do trail if you're in the smokies!

This trail is a challenge but totally worth it. Great trail with great views! It's a must do!

This is a fabulous hike! Beautiful trail along the river for the first half and amazing views at the top! Would definitely do this hike again!

Great place to visit! A little too treacherous for me though

Hiked this trail 8/11/17. Made it to Alum Cave in 45 mins and to the top to the cabins in 2 hours. Round trip took 3 hours 45 mins. Talked a few times along the way. Couldn't see anything at the top because of the fog, so planning on doing it again in the future to see the view. Wish I would have known about this app before my hike.

Lovely trail with a few small waterfalls. Lush greenery and cute bridges. The color of the water at the falls is a beautiful shade of blue.

great trail,definitely a hard trail but worth the hike and be sure to go up to the cliff tops once you get to Mount Le Conte.. you don't want to miss it!!
