Explore the most popular paddle sports trails in Tennessee with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This trail is odd - some places the trail is narrow - other places you are on the road - some parts are fairly steep too -- and better have your alltrails map - it is very poorly marked -- however, the scenery is great and the lake is beautiful. We mapped it at 4.72 mi. Would def do it again. Dogs are fine on this one - many opportunities to get in the water.

Nice hike with some steep sections but not too hard wouldn’t have miles adding the cave loop

Loved this trail can't wait to try another trail with my dogs.

Had a great hike yesterday with the family. Did the full trail which ended up right at 4 miles. Trail has great markings and is well maintained.

Our first hike of 2018 and it didn’t disappoint. It was raining and 50 so we didn’t see many people. The trails where well marked, the trail width was good and the falls were beautiful. The area would be great for camping and hiking all the trails.

Easy trail to above the falls. Many nicely laid out rock steps down to the bottom. There are hand rails most of the way down. Be careful there are wet spots.

Really loved this hike.
great for pets

Awesome trail especially if you like venturing off trail.

Dog friendly, beautiful easy trails with views and water access. Would like to come back and kayak here.

Really nice hike. First part is paved and the second part isn't. It has a really nice overlook of the lake. Though the bridges you see in the picture are not on this trail, they are on the trail next to it called Lost Creek Overlook trail. Which was a very nice trail as well.

Went the complete trail. It was easy, but it was beautiful!

Great trail. The fall was beautiful. Very busy trail with many people and dogs. However I wish it was a little better marked.

Enjoyed the path this morning. Good rise and fall. Very nice around the water. Smelled the bacon as path went near the campsites.

It was a great trail and a great way to spend the day.

Amazing place to take a run or bike ride. You can actually extend this to a 18-20 mile bike ride if you keep going on sidewalks past exchange place. Beautiful creek and a small waterfall also.

Great trails and well maintained.

Great hike for the whole family. Very easy until the last part before falls where it can be steep in places. We hike this trail often with kids and the falls never disappoints.

Quick trail with one of the most beautiful waterfalls at the end. Very easy until the waterfall. Can choose to just view from top or take the steep steps down. Well worth the hour round trip for non experienced hikers.

This one was a bit underwhelming. The views of the river and surrounding landscape are limited until you approach the top of the bluff, and then the trail abruptly ends at a "no trespassing" sign. The views from the top are good, but not great. There are multiple homes or other buildings within view no matter which direction you look.

Parking. Clean bathrooms. Easy to follow. Rustic. Pretty views. Peaceful.

Love it! Such a beautiful waterfall, not a bad hike! One of my favs

Great hike with kids!

Great trail - not quite 6 miles...need to be in fair shape for this one - views are great and the dam is great for pictures. Parking limited and bathrooms by the beach closed in the winter.

we hiked from Childers Creek to beyond Big Bend area for a total of 7 miles. Very nice hike. Good trail. A little wet in a few spots but nothing we couldn't get around. We will do this trail again.

I took my girlfriend here as a surprise for both of us. I’m obsessed with climbing and exploring so this place gets two thumbs up from me. There are several great views, and photo opportunities. As for the people who leave negative reviews due to bugs, heat, cold, etc. It’s probably best for you to get back to that couch and binge-watch something on Netflix.

Easy hike was a little scare of the bear warning. But it was worth it. 3 miles total to the falls and back.

Fun, easy, beautiful day hike.

I love Ijams, there are trails for everyone from beginners to seasoned hikers.

Great trail. 1.5 miles on paved section then 1.3 miles thru woods. I love the 2 swinging bridges.
Restrooms located at beginning of trail.
Fun hike with your dog.
