Greeneville, Tennessee Map

A nice hike with plenty to see. It gets a bit tough after the bridge...the trail there is composed mostly of rock sized between a pumpkin and a softball. Overall the trail is rather easy with moderate sections.

The hike was easy and the waterfall was nice. Nothing special. More of a warm up than a hike.

It was a beautiful trail, a little hard for me , because of medical history, but if I did it, anyone can

Situated in the Old Forge recreation area, this trail is easily accessible and great for a day of lounging. There are plenty places to dip your feet and wade in the first half mile. After that, the trails become pretty dense. About halfway through once you're on top of the mountain the trail becomes extremely narrow. Wear pants, there are briars. It's pretty strenuous once you start to move up and away from the water so be prepared. The breathtaking mountain views are totally worth it. It is not moderately traveled.

We hiked part of this trail. We hiked it for about an hour before we finally turned around. The trail is VERY VERY overgrown and not well marked. This trail needs some TLC! The trail is also rated hard. Unless it gets harder past the point where we turned around, it should be rated moderate. I think I will bring some spray paint and a machete next time I go. However, the hike was beautiful!! I see other reviews saying it meets up with other trails. We did not see any other trails and struggled even find our trail most of the time.

Pretty easy, just one area where you need to cross a creek.

We arrived at 8:30 on a Sunday in mid-July and had a great hike. There's several lil cascades to see on the way to the falls that are very pretty to see. It's steep in several places; laden with heavy roots and loose rocks to maneuver around and a few muddy places from the water draining down the mountain into the brook. It took us about an hour to go up, but we stopped several times along the way to take pictures and see the cascades. The journey down took maybe 45 minutes. It's a great hike. My friend and I are not experienced hikers and we had no issues with this hike. We pretty much had the whole area to ourselves until we started back down the trail and ended up meeting a total of 5 people on the way down and a dog. We mingled around the falls for a good 30 minutes before heading out. Although it was an extremely hot day (in the 80's) the trail itself was shaded by the trees. The wildlife we saw was a small snake, (non-poisonous), orange salamander, a giant snail, and tons of butterflies that were in clusters everywhere. Highly recommend the trip....we will be going back.

pretty short hike. Not too difficult, it is a pretty popular place so you are sure to run across others. I've been there many times. It's beautiful in all seasons. Be careful if you go to the top, very slippery. I've almost fallen down it before ;p
