Difficult but amazing hike. The view of the waterfall at the top was well worth the difficult climb. First 1.5 mile was all gradual uphill, so not very difficult, but the last mile was very strenuous. Lots of climbing over rocks and roots, a little bit of water on the trail. It was all beautiful! Saw a mama bear with her two cubs about a mile into the hike, just 15 feet off the trail.

Our favorite hike so far. Words can't describe how amazing this trail is.

Beautiful forest and river views all the way to the falls. Nice lookout area on large rocks mid-way thru. Some steep climbs,definitely a moderate trail. Loved the entire hike. Falls are beautiful.

Great trail with beautiful falls at end of trail. Took this trail with family. Can be challenging for some since it's rugged. Wear comfortable shoes that can get wet.

Fabulous hike! Beautiful trail with a river in the first half and amazing views at the top! Definitely a must do trail if you're in the smokies!

My favorite swimming hole and waterfall. It's sometimes too crowded though.

Go right after it rains so the waterfalls are impressive.

I took Spicewood up and South Old Mac trail back. The .5 to the Lookout Tower is worth the views. Several downed trees along the path, but the crew is working to remedy this.
