Cool view but was not an overall great experience. Very narrow trail and is not clearly marked.

Really enjoyed this hike

Pretty awesome hike! I could see why this could be rated as a hard hike, since you have to walk across 4-6 streams and then some elevation gain. However if it hasn't been raining to much I would rank this a moderate trail, the water line never made it to my knees. They have wire rope that you can use to help cross streams, water was pretty cold but felt great since it was a warm day. I had mesh tennis shoes on and that worked out perfect. When you get to a sign that says "overlook," take a look at the cliffs above that is where the trail ends. When you make it to the top of the cliffs, it's a beautiful 360 degree view of tree lines. I'm sure it would be beautiful in the later part of fall with all the trees changing colors.
Also, I highly recommend to do Burgess Falls Trail after this trail it was about a 10 minute drive from trail head to trail head. Only a 1 mile hike but the waterfalls left me speechless! I started at 11am and finished both hikes by 4pm...it was worth the drive from Nashville.

Wonderful trail. Not too difficult but make sure to use the cable crossings. Creek rocks can be very slick and depending on when you go the creek may be high. CC 3 and 4 were dry while I was here. Beautiful overlook at the end, though it may be more picturesque in the winter. Overall great experience. Make sure to get here early, as this trail tends to fill up quick.

A little over 5 miles in and out makes for an uncommonly pleasant walk in the woods. There are essentially three sections: The drop into/ climb out of the creek bottom made up of four switchbacks down an otherwise very steep slope; the sunny glade walk through the brushy bottom lined this time of years with goldenrod, coneflowers, and other yellow flora I can't identify; and the deeply shaded forest trail you pick up after creek crossing 5. The last of these eventually makes a relatively short climb up to the cliffs themselves. TEVA or similar supportive sandals are the right footwear - plenty for the steeper sections and essential for the creek crossings. Bring plenty of water for hot days.

Nice trail!
