Nice hills for quick but good workout in about an hour. Shady trail. Take the stairs up/down to add a little extra to the workout.

I did this trail about two weeks ago. It was a great sight to see and was a fun adventure close to home. Steep but definitely doable. Unfortunately It is littered with broken glass so be careful.

August 5th
What a great trail. I made some changes and ended up with 4.5 miles and 480 feet elevation climb.
nice waterfall. you can get about a mile down the Fiery Gizzard before you run into the trail construction. should be open Sept 1 the ranger told me.
Looking forward to the 13 trip to Foster.
NOTE the app has the Dog hole as a 2 mile out and back. not so it is a part of the raven point trail loop with the Fiery Gizzard. Well worth the trip.

Took this hike Sunday Aug. 19.
I went to the right and took the climbers loop. I went down onto the climbers loop at the first drop down then came up at the second. Doubled back and took the loop to the falls. The falls was worth the trip.
ended up going 3.5 miles and had an elevation climb of 800 feet total.
Word of advise, don't take the climbers loop if you aren't in good trail condition. It's a high moderate and you will climb some height.
will do this again.

Fairly easy hike with nice waterfall as a reward. Would definitely recommend.

Nice little hike. Trail is pretty much up uphill all the way. It's a nice steady incline all the way. The fall is very nice. you can climb down to the small pool at the base of the fall. I would recommend this to everyone. My wife has a heart condition and she made it without taking a break. Carry a bottle of water just to stay hydrated anytime you hike.

Really enjoyed it. Took 2 of the alternate trails as well and they wound down by the water. it added some complexity but also some distance and really nice views. The waterfall is really something.

Best falls I’ve been to this summer!!! The hike to the blue hole was rough. I had two dogs with me, but they did really well. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet!

The trail was ROUGH, but totally worth the effort. Took three dogs, they struggled in certain areas, but had a blast. If you’ve been to Cummins the trail is harder, I thought this trail was closer to strenuous than moderate because it’s really rocky.

Easy trial, the falls are cool, it is a little shady though. I was worried about being approached for sex or drugs... worth the risk for as easy as the path was to walk.

Kind of a pain, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it every time. Super crowded on the weekend, and there will be a lot of people during the week, so be prepared for that. Took two medium sized dogs, just be prepared to have to carry your mutt in certain places.

Most amazing views. Worth the hike, but it's a good workout.

This was a mostly easy hike with some steps and steeper areas nearer the falls. To see the falls you have to either walk through the water or stone step your way to it. The pay off is worth it. I wish I had brought a towel and bathing suit. I do not recommend Adam's Falls Loop trail that goes off this trail. The falls were nonexistent and we walked through lots of spider webs.

Sort of boring but very scenic and crowded. Take the good with the bad, I guess!

Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

One of the most scenic trails in Northeast Tennessee, but when it’s wet it gets a lil rough. Overall a good trail for pictures and kid friendly!!!

If you enjoy adventurous woodland paths, this is not for you. It was like visiting a farm where they'd used a large mower and had mown paths without any real destination in mind from field to field, then put up an outdoor center, and called those paths, "trails". There are no markers, so you may want to use a map or GPS and bring water on hot days. There is no water around, except the river, which is not accessible or humans or dogs.

trails well kept and marked,nice for conditioning has level and elevated areas

Not bad watch for unleashed dogs.

Excellent for people watching can get congested on weekends.

It’s a good trail lots of down hill but also lots of up. It’s not quite as easy as it’s made out to be for a beginner rating but fun an exciting none the less.

Nice trail but when they “fixed” the lake they turned it into a mosquito breeding pond swamp nothing more

Great hike. Lots to see.

Absolutely beautiful! Just wished it would have been a longer hike.

As heavily trafficked as this trail is I was surprised by the overgrowth. The signage is nonexistent. Made a wrong choice at a no sign split and entered into the path of the secret garden. The over hanging kudzu made for beautiful doorways to enter into the unknown, but climbing through them was a bit difficult. We finally got ourselves turned around and made it to the top. We didn’t mind the adventure but for a non local , signs would be helpful.

Beautiful! Must do when in Chattanooga!

Nice, easy trail that nearly everyone can do and be rewarded with a gorgeous site at the end. Only challenge is avoiding the crowds :(

great trail and a lot to see. loved the old farm house and barn.
