Good, steep hike. Not the best maintained but it's doable. Can access stamping ridge and Unaka mountain from this trailhead.

Trail was clearly marked. Pretty easy. I did it with my 4 year old and we had a blast. It was the perfect length for us

It was peaceful.

By far my favorite!

lots of trees down

The view at the falls makes it worth the hike. Starting point of the trail is good also, as you have access to grills, bathrooms, a lake for swimming and a small sandy area to relax and be lazy.

Ijams is a great place to hike in town. There are many trails to choose from or to combine if you want a longer hike. I have knee trouble from time to time so I can go there and have a nice hike on more even paths or I can do some climbing if my knee will cooperate. They have rentals at the quarry for kayaking and paddle boarding or you can bring your own and go on the river at the river landing. Very nice ramp there! You don't have to get your feet wet! Parking is pretty close by, but you do have to walk a bit to get to the ramp. I used my trolley to wheel my kayak to and from the ramp. If no parking is available there you can drop off your "boat" and park at the quarry down the gravel road and across the street. I made it a combo and hiked a mile then kayaked 4 miles on the river. It was very nice.
