The trail head is trashy and it’s littered along the way. It’s really pretty but also disappointing to hear the roar of the interstate beside the trail. From the top, it’s beautiful but also overlooks I-75. Wasn’t expecting that.

Good trail! We haven’t been hiking much in this area. Not very scenic but quite clean and easy to follow. Since we haven’t been hiking in a while, it was a good challenge for us. Took a little over an hour.

A peaceful hike. I was a bit anxious when parking as the trailhead is at the very end of a dead end road on what appears to be private property. A couple people were outside so i was able to ease my mind and ask if it was ok to park there. Beautiful secluded scenery and a picturesque swimming hole. Best part is i didn’t see anyone else the whole hike. There are many creek crossings so bring appropriate shoes.

Great little walk. Few small hills but manageable, tons of joggers, bicycles and families out enjoying the beautiful views of Knoxville! Water and restroom at park pavilion

So just a heads up this hike is not for the faint of heart. A lot of this path is a bit overgrown due to it not having heavy traffic through it. Though let me tell you it does not take away from the beauty that is in this gem of a spot. Throughout the hike you will get glimpses of the lake and even be able to see a Full views of the lake as well. There are small waterfalls along this journey and towards the end of the journey about halfway through there is a old hand built rock wall that I ended up finding out from someone local that was built by slaves back in the day true little piece of history and beauty. Also very important in order to get back to your car you must walk back through the trail because it takes you to outlook and then it’s a hour and a half walk back to the main park. So what I would recommend is if you’re going in a group of two or more have one group park in outlook while the other group parks at the lower level so by the time the group as a whole Gets to the top they can just ride down to the other vehicle

This is definitely one of my favorites in the area! I prefer to start at the trail head near the top of the mountain, about a 5 min. drive toward Dennis cove. We've even camped for a weekend and it was beautiful too. the hike is pretty easy, with the stairs down and back to the falls being the only really strenuous part. Definitely recommend!

Very quiet trail; only saw three others at the time I went for a hike. The main path is paved with three off-road trails. The off-road trails were not always clearly marked and were often muddy. As others stated, there seemed to be folks hanging out near the beginning of the trail, which seemed a bit off/creepy. Otherwise, this was a nice, quiet, isolated hike.

Not well marked but nice trail

This is a great 3 mile trail. There are several steep inclines and declines separated by flat areas. Lots of rain so the bugs are bad. Nice workout with old growth forest and a few water crossings. Overall very enjoyable.

Great day for a hike Moderate difficulty but trails well maintained. Ticks were out in force but not the Park’s fault!

Brought a kayak and a mountain bike. Great area for families.

Great interval workout, steep uphill for first ten minutes. There are several paths you can take, and the trail feels pretty secluded. The only warning I would give is for the spiders. There were webs across a majority of the trail, but they were all harmless. Also heads up-there is no cell service once you start the trail

Walked all 3 balds (Round, Jane, and Grassy Ridge) and back at 4.7 miles. It was the most gorgeous trail I have ever been on! 360 degree views the entire time! Hiked with my family (kids are 9 & 11) and they were tired, but also very glad we went. It was warm (we didn’t expect) and we got pretty sunburned. In mid June the entire mountain will be covered in rhododendrons, and I need to come back again during that time. Most people turned back after Round bald, so it was kinda crowded at first but it thinned out. 10/10 Stars. Would do this Trail again everyday of my life if I lived near.

Beautiful trail. Keep going to the top. Waterfall, bridge and then that view!

the trail is overgrown and muddy. do not walk. it's pointless! when I came out on the road, I just turned around and went back down the trail to the Jeep and the lookout is directly off the road. so you're just going to see The overlook just keep driving and you will find it. the walk is not scenic.

Great trails!! Lots of trails to choose from!! The trails are kept up and all the trees have been moved from the storms we just had. We had a blast!! Kid friendly, dog friendly!! Beautiful area!!

We had a great time today! Easy trail we had 3 dogs and two kids with us and made it to the main fall. Lots of water along the way to stop and take pictures and let the pups drink. We even had a picnic by the creek!! We wanted to keep going only we got pass the main fall but it had a tricky spot that I did not feel safe trying to get the kids around. When I go back I’ll go to the top! The water is up right now so everything was flowing! It was beautiful!! We will go back!!
