Easy hike with an amazing reward at the end!

Great hike. improvements are continuing to be made.

beautiful in July. Great water access for the dogs to play in. many bridges crossing back and forth across the creek

Nice little hike, beautiful scenery! Whole hike, in and out took about 2 hours... and that's with exploring off trail and taking our time. Took my 6 year old. She loved it! Got some great pictures!

This trail is very beautiful. It’s about a 2.8 mile trek to the falls. If you plan on camping out at the falls overnight I would suggest hammock camping no good places for tents on this trail or at the falls. It’s a easy mostly flat hike, but very rocky. There are about twenty water crossings and no were for swimming at the bottom fall the upper fall may be suitable for a quick dip I did not go up to it didn’t see a way with out rock climbing however another hiker mentioned you have to go up the hill to the left of the lower fall and work your way up the root system and then your there. Took my wife and 11 year old it was a great hike. Not many people around and no real good dead wood for a campfires.

be sure to take the Upper Canyon Trail that connects near the overlook. at least take it down to the creek. worth it!!

Why the app says 7 mil ???????

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

Reviews are spot on! Very intense hike! Starts off fairly flat for the first half but then it gets very steep! Lots of rocks and loose dirt so the climb down gets tricky as well. We explored further down the path until we met the Holston Mountain trail and then turned back. Legs were definitely shaking on the way down! Was able to accomplish this as my 3rd hike after many years off! The view at the top is breathtaking! Looking forward to doing it again in the fall when the leaves are changing! Definitely recommend this hike if you can handle a steep climb up and down! Just make sure you have plenty of water and take plenty of breaks!

hiked this trail at 730am and it was beautiful and peaceful. The only strenuous part was the stairs coming back up from the falls, very rocky.

Truly awesome hard hiking trail with places you have to literally climb over rocks! Highly recommended for those looking for a good work out in the outdoors.

To experience the best at this place you need to take the trail from the overlook off of Chapman Hwy on the left side of the quarry. It’s rugged and secluded back there and would probably rank as difficult in many places.
Other reviewers are right though that the other people in the area aren’t always the best, but I know a few places to go to avoid them for the most part.

It was a nice, short, difficult hike if that's what you're looking for. Personally I didn't think the hard work getting there was worth the view at the end, but to each their own.

The hike was 2.2 miles but felt like forever! The beginning of the trial was alright but then it got boring. Also the end result wasn’t really worth the hike in the first place. My friends and I went on August 2nd and in result to that one of them got Rocky Mountain spotty fever,( which is deadly if not caught early). We all got ate up my several seed ticks. It’s not a terrible trail but I won’t be going back.

Wow! The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of people. The hike back out was pretty steep, but well work the trip.

Steady incline down on the way in makes for an increased difficulty on the way out. Not too bad even for inexperienced hikers, however the trail markers were tough to spot toward the end when the trail became less obvious. Following the sound of the waterfall proved more useful. A few spots where sure footing was not guaranteed.

The back trails are now well marked but the trails were clean and it felt like I had the whole park to myself. Dogs are welcome on the trail as long as they are on a leash.

It was perfect for young kids and a puppy. Wide trails. No drops. They could play in several stops along the river and even at the fall.

nice and easy!

Great place for flowers!

First hike ever and it was amazing! Loved it

Loved this hike! The falls are amazing! We did have to walk through water to get there and the trail has some medium sized rocks in a few spots. I would say moderate is a good rating for this trail. So worth it though!

Breaktaking experiences of caves, patterned rocks, and mountain views.

Anyone have directions to the falls. I took the service road until I got to a shin high stream crossing and wasn't prepared for that did I miss the trail or do you need to cross the stream?

Easy walk paved trail with great sunset views.

A really nice trail. The waterfalls at the end are excellent but the trail makes you work for it. Trail is a mix of flat walking and quite rocky. There are 4 water crossings which were manageable even with the wet summer.

Overall, good hike. Only thing like it in the Boro. The main trail - Marshall Knobbs - is less than 3 miles... you have to take BOTH side trails; Valley View and Rocky Path - to get it over 4- close to 5.

My friends and I were camping in Hot Springs NC, and decided to take a 45 min drive over to hike this trail. The hike to the falls is beautiful. From the trail head to the waterfall is about a 400 ft incline in elevation. Because of this, going to the falls is mostly uphill. There are parts of the trail that is just made up of piles of medium size rocks. Great place for snakes to hide. We saw two along this stretch of the trail. Overall, I would totally recommend this hike!

Very strenuous hike! The first part of the hike is very deceiving and leads u to believe that its not gonna be that bad. After about 1/4 a mile it is absolutely straight up the mountain for the rest of the hike. There are lots of trees to lean on the way up. If u do make it to the top, you will see one of the neatest habitats around here and some of the most unique wildflowers. Its totally worth the effort!
