Amazing hike! It’s not too long of a hike and it’s on a paved trail with dirt trails coming and going from it. The falls are amazing and your able to get right up too them. There’s a upper and lower fall. You can get down to the lower part but you have to be careful with the rocks! Beautiful views!

Excellent trail for marathon training or an easy jog.

Great trail with access to the Greenline 10.9 Greenline trail.

This was a trail that was totally worth the view at the top. All paved trail that has a steady and tough incline the whole way. The view from the observatory at the top is great. 360° view of the mountains that is very photo worthy. The most challenging part of this trail is parking. It is an absolute nightmare. Narrow two-lane road with cars inventively parked on both sides and a line of cars that goes halfway to Gatlinburg.

This is a beautiful trail, kid friendly. Short with some elevation gain. The waterfalls make it all worth it, we spent about an hour taking pictures and splashing in the pool at the bottom.

Waterfall is best part no surprise but hike is busy because it’s paved with all levels able to enjoy it. Mostly tree high Mountain View

It's a nice looking (though not very dramatic) water fall at the top of a fairly large ascent. The trail is easy in the sense that it's well paved, without any rocks to climb over. Just keep in mind that you are basically walking a ramp to the equivalency of the top of a thirty foot building.

It was great to see, along with all of the other folks hanging out up there, but I don't feel the need to ever return.

When the water is running it is very nice

Low difficulty creekside stroll and running path.Good for local Kingsport bike ride.

Nearly better than clingmans dome due to the fact you can pretty much access this year around. the hike is short. about 3 fairly steep switch backs made of gravel start you out before switching to a paved maintenance road. at the T turn left and the tower will be just a ways up ahead of you. incredible panoramic views, just be sure to dress warm because it can get super windy at the top. took my 80 year old grandparents and we completed it in about a hour and a half. good for the whole family. foothills parkway is worth the drive all by itself too, this is just a bonus.

very easy hike I walked a 2 year old anyone could do it beautiful trail nice view

I walked a good part of it today and I really enjoyed it. Nice path with friendly people and dogs. Definitely not considered a hiking trail but, for my purpose of just getting outside and moving, it was great.

Very nice hike, very busy even though we went early. The waterfall is smaller than imagined but very nice area to sit and take the view in.

Wildlife and historical

Well maintained walking trail.

Jan 2019. Lovely sunny day; paved bike path type trails; stayed on those that stayed by creeks; soccer & other playing fields here but no games during our visit; quiet; easy strolling or jogging.

Great walk. Beautiful day so it was busy. Easy walk for anyone.

I live close by and run this with my dogs regularly. Love the wide, paved trails.

The trail is an incline until you reach the falls. The falls are spectacular! Very worth the trip. The trail is paved but it is not appropriate for strollers/ wheelchairs/etc. The paving isn't smooth. There are some steep drop-offs directly beside the trail as you near the falls (and at the falls) so be very careful with children. The trail was busy the day I went. I think it normally is, but it wasn't crowded to the point that it detracted from enjoying the day. Love this trail!

This excursion provides a beautiful view of the City of Memphis and the Mississippi River. It can be crowded and with bikers along the way you wonder why they didn't design the walkway a few feet wider.

We had a great day walking off the Holidays!!!!!
1300 cals just walking! We took our pups with us and introduced our newest Baby to one our many outdoor passions. Easy walk or pick up the pace and run or ride your bike. Lots of choices......

Love the greenway!! Take my dogs on walks there almost daily!! Not really what I would call a trail but still cool!
