I really liked this park and how easy it was to go through the whole area. It's nice to walk your dog through; just remember they must be on a leash at all times. It's also nice to just sit down and eat at.

So the only reason why I like this path is because you can and I suggest that you do go off path. You will get some really pretty scenery aside from what's on the paved trail. It is nice to go jogging in the morning or evening though and I have liked using this path for my morning jogs. Just make sure you pack at least two bottles of water since its summer and bug spray.

Beautiful trail run.

Beautiful hike with some epic views. Was a bear near the trail, but we had just missed it. Been wanting to hike the AT, now just have to do the whole thing some say.

Beautiful hike. Clouds were rolling in at the top, only saw the chimney mountain for a minute, the trail to it was closed. We did it with our 5 yr old son & daughter in tow. Would hike again.

Great hike, beautiful river went up to husky gap. Plenty of fishing holes. It loops if you take Jacobs trail back but it's the next parking area over.

Steep trail. Paved with plenty of rest spots. The views from the top and the AT is well worth the climb!

Beautiful hike but be prepared or just stay on the rim.

Short hike but the views are very nice!

Great hike. Water wasn't too high in October, below our knees for sure. The window cliffs were a great spot to chill out and eat lunch. Hiking out on the switchbacks was the hardest part, but it wasn't very difficult or long. Close enough drive to Burgess Falls to add that on as well for a full day.

Beautiful falls. Not well marked. Easy hike and well worth the stairs!!

Absolutely stunning views. Not suited for all ages/levels in my opinion. My dog hated the suspension bridge so be aware if that will be an issue for you. Worth it though for the great falls and rock faces

Always a nice and easy hike. Great for kids with the nature center and play area.

A nice quiet hike once you clear the cove where the boats hang out. Most of the trail is well covered with foilage and fairly clear until you get to the last mile or so where the trail goes through some taller grass. Tick repellent is definitely recommended.

great trail for little ones ... not too strenuous.......

Great hike following the creek most of the way. First mile and a half is pretty easy and takes you to a nice overlook of the water. The next 1+ mile gets a bit more rugged and elevation begins to increase. Several nice foot bridge crossings. The remainder of the trail will test you. A pretty steep climb and one slightly depressing section that seems to lead you away from the sound of rushing water. But the struggle is so worth it. Enjoy!

Very nice hike. Trails are usually pretty wet being near a dam, so bring some good boots. The sights and the swimming hole are epic.

At the beginning, the trail is wide and easy. Some people come back without completing the loop. The second half of the loop has a couple of challenging creek crossings an the path becomes narrower. At some points, it is wide for just one person. The creek views and sounds are very nice. At the end of the loop there are very old houses where just the fireplaces stand. We enjoyed this easy to moderate trail.

Went here on a day while exploring Cades Cove.  My biggest advice is: hike it in the morning because of shade.  Lots of the trail is uncovered, so in the late Spring it gets very hot.  It is a longish trail that is up and down both ways.  The waterfall was nice, but the payoff compared the cost of the long hike isn't there for me.  If you are already doing Cades Cove then yes go ahead and do it, but I wouldn't make a special trip to this hike.

Enjoyed the short hike. As a beginner hiker this was perfect exercise w a little cardio, but beautiful at the falls.

Beautiful hike

Nice short trail. Well maintained. Some old growth trees and nice birds.

Great hike and some mother daughter time. We live nearby so will go again.

Nice relaxing hike.

Beautiful place to walk with my 7 month old!

The hike is short and paved, too steep for wheelchairs (posted on a sign there). This trail is more for the view, which is excellent.

NOT a great place to go if you have kids, or do not want to be around copious amounts of drugs and alcohol.

Took our dog with us for a walk, and almost instantly realized how much better our local parks are for this.

If you are into drugs, underage drinking, and young trashy girls in skimpy bikinis; then this is the place for you.

great views and very nice trail... love it

very beautiful place, with creek and waterfall.

Awesome trail for backpacking.
