I hiked the lost creek trail to get to the marble plains loop and then back to the parking lot on the paved trail!! Beautiful scenery. The marble plains loop is definitely a little overgrown, but no problem seeing the trail. Saw lots of wildlife and beautiful wildflowers! Beautiful views of the lake along the trail too :)

Be aware that this trail is closed at the moment due to bear activity in the area.

Great hike for the family, both little legs and long. Falls were roaring, beautiful.

Amazing and fairly easy 3 mile trail into a very green forest and along the lake.

Beautiful day hike. roots and rocks along paths. steep descending stairs at falls. Family friendly hiking and camping swimming fishing area. picnic tables and grills.

This was gorgeous and we got to watch some people kayak down the river too. Kid friendly for sure

These are the best maintained trails ever. Thanks mtn bikers!

Well established path and nice parking area with swimming and shelter houses.

Worth it! Big, clear, flat trail to the fall. We camped at Chilhowee Campground and we were able to hop on the trail from our site. Best campground trail I’ve done. Good for all levels of hikers. We spent a lot of time at the bottom taking pictures and we were back at our campsite in under two hours.

Lovely trail along the French Broad with beautiful views and glimpses of the local wildlife. Easy, mostly flat trail, perfect for dog walks however please be aware of ticks! We have removed around 50 ticks off our 3 dogs since finishing this trail and a few off ourselves- other than the ticks this is a perfect trail that I highly recommend!

This trails river view is closed due to flooding so the entire thing you can’t do which is sad. But still good views of the river

loved this trail and it's fast.

Ive done this trail twice now with my 8 month old puppy! There are a few areas that are very narrow and/or muddy so definitely need to be really careful but overall a great hike and good for dogs! Pretty, peaceful and good exercise

Love this area

The overlook at Buzzard's Point offers one of the best west-to-east views of the Tennessee Valley. On a clear day, you can see the Tennessee River, the Hiwassee River, and the Unicoi Mountains which are roughly 60 miles eastwards.

this is a nice short easy hike, pleasant waterfall at the end

Good, easy, pretty much flat walk for a five year old and myself. Saw a rat snake. Almost stepped on it.

We arrived late in the afternoon from traveling and wanted to do some hiking. The park closes at dusk, museum closed at 4. The office was also closed so we could not get a trail map. I used my All Trails app and followed the blazes for the yellow trail. It runs with the red trail a ways. We got in 2.5 miles before we were worried about gates being locked at dusk. We made it to the top of the bluff overlooking the fort and river. It was a good, quick hike with some uphill challenges and steps. Trails are well marked and easy to follow. I would do the longer 8 mile loop trail and go all the way to the fort next time when I have more time. There are a few signs along the trail to give information about the history of the area. It has a sad history that I was unaware of until today.
