I did the short, hike, on Lowery falls trail today. The trail is in great, shape. it has had recent, trail, work. it's a easy hike, except last part, is kinda, steep. beautiful, waterfalls, all along, the trail. and some, really neat rocks.

Wow! Our friends took us hiking on this trail and it was beautiful. It is extremely hard to find (in my opinion) and we are so glad they had a Jeep because our car would have not made it to the trailhead. Much of the road is washed out. With that being said, I would totally go again if they drove us! We only saw one of group one the trail during our 4+ hours. Just be prepared for this hike.

Stunningly beautiful falls with six different places to view and enjoy. Get ready for lots of mud on the trail in spots, but it’s well worth it. Very steep inclines in spots, so you have to be very careful not to slip, twist an ankle, or tweak a knee. The cool breeze off these falls is a wonderful experience on a hot Summer day.

This is a beautiful trail. with lots of waterfalls. a little on the hard side. it has 2 big blowdowns, blocking trail. I saw a turkey goober, and a snake, it would be a 5 star trail, with some trail work.

Second try for this trail. Started at end with the bridge. Road down to that end has washouts so be prepared. Access to end near the falls is easy if you come in from 68. Lots of roots & rocks. Climbed over & under a few trees. Trail is narrow most of the way. Did not complete the trail as there was a pile of trees with branches & it didn't look passable. During wetter times, be prepared for lots of stream crossing. There were only 2 today & they were easy, but it was obvious there were dry beds waiting for water.

Nice trail! Beautiful water all along it. It is a little overgrown and steep in some places. Doable for most all skill levels. My 4 year old hiked the whole way and my 2 year old most of the way.

The trail along the river is nice and good for a trail run. Approx 5 miles in there are currently several trees down.

The most beautiful views of the water along the trail. Plenty of places to fill up, mostly flat with a few roots to scramble over. A couple disperse campsites in a great location.

This was an awesome trail! It has about 5 different levels of this beautiful waterfall that you can just walk right onto! Take your time on the way up; it’s beautiful! The trail gets pretty steep in parts, but it’s SO worth it. The trail is well maintained and broken up well! Definitely my favorite hike in Tennessee by far! Enjoy!

Easy and beautiful!

Great trail but definitely not for beginners. I’m curious to know where this trail comes out. We started at the water falls entrance and was told a bridge was at the end. If hiking to the end where is the parking lot?

This is a horse road and not a hiking trail.

in the spring/after lots of rain (like today, April 24th), there are a few things that you should know about this trail. The seven miles of dirt road leading to the trail is full of large rocks, potholes and gullies of running water. 4 wheel drive is essential. Also, I believe that a sedan or any low riding vehicle would bottom out and couldn't make it on parts of the road that is divetted from the rains. When you arrive at the first Coker Creek Trail sign along the dirt road, you can go right or left. If you go left, about one mile down is a parking area for the trail. The trail is easy to identify. At the first split along the trail, take the lower trail as you will be closer to the scenic Creek. It is about 1/2 mile to the cascading falls. Today the creek was over-flowing it's banks and despite the breathtaking beauty of the falls, the rapids were frightening. There was absolutely no way to safely cross the creek to continue the hike. We hiked back to the car and drove back to the intersection and went the alternate route (which is where the All Trails app will take you). It is about three miles to a parking area. After parking, continue down the road a short distance. There are clearly painted white diamonds on the trees to identify the trail. It goes in both directions. Take the trail to the right. Today there were lots of downed trees to climb over/under. We strategically crossed two little creeks/run-offs without getting wet. Spectacular wildflowers were all along the trail, as was poison ivy.

It’s more than just a little steep in places. But also it’s more than a hike to a waterfall. The trail goes beside beautiful cascades the whole way.

Nice old logging road. Good social distancing location for a walk in nature. No major landmarks but still enjoyable.

What a wonderful hike and what beatiful waterfalls! It was especially nice to hear and see the river almost the whole time during the hike. Be aware that you need to climb a bit over fallen trees these days due to the recent storms. Also make sure you meet your hiking friends at the intended trailhead: you can start the hike on either side of this Out & Back trail. The AllTrails GPS coordinates will lead you to one side, whereas the written directions lead you to another via a gravel road. One of us tracked the distance and arrived at 8.67 km/5.4 miles. We had a longer break at the midpoint and therefore needed 3.5 hours.

Easy walk down old logging road through the woods. At the intersection (by the brown route sign) turn left. The rest of the path is easy to find/follow without guidance. One very small creek crossing (easy to do without getting wet). A few downed trees yet easy to maneuver. Level, relatively smooth path- Probably could even maneuver a jogging stroller the entire way. Good trail for young children as the path is as wide as a road and level. Other than a few run offs/mini creeks, not much to see besides woods. Many different varieties of wildflowers. Passed two groups on horseback along trail. Watch your step!

A beautiful day hiking with our 2 fur kids along the Hiwassee River. Three trees across trail but easy to get around. A lot of spring flowers in bloom plus butterflies.

Tough hike yesterday! Parts of narrow trail were missing. Other parts were hard to cross due to downed trees and steep inclines! Beautiful scenery! The dog did awesome! The fat old man not so much!

great, wide trail that is mostly in the shade. was a gravel service road probably but has a bit of grass grown on it now. Two small stream crossing and you pass several springs along the way. a couple of muddy spots but other that that pretty flat and dry.
