Wonderful trail in both the beginning and when you get to the higher elevation. Didn't get to see the falls at the end because we had to turn back to check out of our cabin, but even without them this trail shows a lot of what smokey mountain national park has to offer while connecting to other trails for a longer day trip.

One of my family's favorites! Have been hiking this trail every few years for the past 20 years, with my children from 8 years old and up. Looking forward to sharing this with my grandchildren in another 3-4 years. I would advise that you be in shape! The last bit up to the falls is strenuous. Fortunately the falls is a great place to hang out and enjoy a snack, and admire the natural beauty

Can anyone advise if this trail is open on Weekdays yet? I'm visiting the area from Mon-Weds inclusive next week all the way from the UK and looking for some amazing hiking!

Easy walk and a nice area at the falls.

One of the waterfalls because the water is easily accessible and you can walk behind the falls. The trial is treacherous because of the number of tree roots along the way. But this is a definite see!

I read a review saying it wasn't as amazing as everyone was saying it was but I went when it was cloudy and it was still absolutely beautiful. I would suggest going early though bc it is fairly well known so it gets cluttered with tourists pretty fast. I would def go again but next time keep on going to make the hike to the top of Mt. Leconte again. ❤️❤️

This trail is awesome! The trail itself is not difficult to traverse, it is just a climb from the start. Several rock and wood step areas and many places you are walking the edge. I did this trail with my 10 & 14 year olds. They were both able to handle with no problem. Arch rock and staircase is very cool, the bluffs are gigantic, but the views are spectacular. If you get to the lodge, go further up to clifty top.....at the top take the trail to the right. BEAUTIFUL!! We made a day out of this trail. We didn't get started until 9:30am and got to the top about 1pm. We made several stops along the way for photo ops and a drink and had a quick snack at the bluffs. We stayed at the lodge area at mount le conte about an hour before heading back down. Down is harder on your legs as it's a constant pounding.....all the way down. The skies/fog had cleared on the way down, so again we took several pics. We took about 3hrs coming back and again had a snack break at the bluffs. ENJOY!!
