A nice hike! The schoolhouse, the cemetery, and the house are all very nice! We got a bit lost at first. If you park at the picnic area you will need to walk across the bridge to access the trail. It’s a fun hike.

Very steep trail, hiking poles are useful. Beautiful picnic spot at the top with incredible views.

Great trail, tough climb, beautiful views.

There is a local that offers transportation from one end of the trail to another for anyone doing the straight through and only one vehicle. Dorothy T: 423-208-5949 Cost is $10.

Hiked on a cold Dec day with snow on ground. Beautiful views of the river. One section was a bit tricky at the edge of the water; quite narrow and was slick. From Elk River Falls pkg it’s def closer to 8 miles RT. The path forks off of the Elk River Falls trail at the very beginning onto a dirt/gravel road From there you end up on part of the Appalachian Trail. Follow the white markers, keeping primarily to the right goingout.

neat little trail to visit. very easy anybody could do this one.

Very icy towards the top this time of year. Would recommend waterproof boots with good grip. Well worth it for the views.

Dope. Dice and smooth yet still has features. Makes for a great ride!

A truly beautiful hike. There are a lot of creek crossings so be sure to wear adequate footwear. I wasn't aware dogs weren't allowed on the trail and I had my 2 with me, luckily we only ran into a few other hikers. I'm not sure why they wouldn't be allowed if leashed.

Loved seeing the owls and hawks. The boardwalk over the water is really peaceful and I loved the views over it from the look-out building.

Never got to see the trails. Take the "hard" rating of this trail seriously, we usually carry our 100lbs of gear to the site and 4 miles is about what we can do. We barely made it a mile and had to go ahead and set up camp. The trail rating is accurate.

Just completed this trail, it snowed on us the entire time. its still a pretty trail, good views, and zero traffic. i would recommend this trail for all skill levels.

I give it 5 stars for around the Memphis area. Lot of ups and downs. Went during the fall and had some pretty views of deep valleys and the wetlands. Couple of benches set up along the way to sit and rest and enjoy the view. Only down side I see is it is an inner city park and the trains go right beside the park but overall a nice little park.

Very nice trail, and well maintained. I'd rate it as moderate. though the alum gap-BCG section is quite rocky and steep. Wear close toed shoes. Only a couple other people on the trail despite clear skies and a high around 55. Near the ranger station, check out Ranger Falls as well, just a couple hundred yards to beautiful falls.

Good hike for how short it was.
