nice trail

My wife and I did this trial today and would say it's between easy and moderate. Definitely worth the hike!

We started hiking early this morning and had gotten behind a pack of llamas taking supplies to mount LeConte. Did have to watch out for droppings. Beautiful Mornin!!

Beautiful hike! Trail down to the waterfall is steep and rocky but well worth the refreshingly cold water waiting for you. Had a 4 and 9 year old that completed the hike. It took about 4.5 hours round trip.

This loops is pretty cool. Along Little River, you can explore the area around the Spence Cabin. There is a patio right on the river behind the cabin that you can sit on and listen to the water rush by. There are also a half dozen or so field stone fireplaces along the trail where the old cabins used to stand. If you enjoy photography, these would be a good opportunity to get some cool shots. The trail is an easy incline as it used to be a railroad. It's crushed rock and very easy. Cucumber Gap trail is challenging at first as it's mostly uphill and there are a lot of toe catchers, but it was peaceful with all the large hardwood trees along the way.

This was a little more difficult than we expected on the way up. However my 60+ parents were able to handle it as well as my five year old and nine year old boys. Use the restroom before you go, they smell bad.

We hiked Grotto Falls with our kids ages 11, 7, and 4. We had a blast the waterfall in the end is a treat at the end. It's an uphill trail the whole way, lots of roots, rocks and walking over some small creeks so hiking shoes are ideal. We saw a bear on this trail and salamanders. GREAT hike for the family.

It was so hard up AND down but the top was worth every ache and pain! If this pair of 40 somethings can do it, so can you! Wear shoes meant for hiking. Take food and plenty of water. Watch your footing near the edges at the top. If you have joint problems, this hike isn't for you.

Well worth the drive! We met 1 group of people on this hike. Got in our cardio on this well marked trail. The falls was just stunning! The directions on this took us to someone's house. There is only 1 sign for this and if you turn left on Newnan you have gone too far! Be looking for the brown sign on Farner.
