the new stairs are awesome thanks to the people who built them, and the waterfall and trails are amazing they're super green

Great scenery is not in short supply on this trail. Personally speaking I think going ccw is the harder option, the opposite of which we did, but the harder summit trail is definitely ccw. Will definitely hike this trail again and try to make our way to the foster falls area.

The trail is under construction, but appears to be nearly finished. Caught the waterfall the day after a heavy rain. One of the best waterfalls that I have seen.

Hiked down to the falls then to Small Wild camp ground. Camped then back out the next morning. Beautiful views nice weather. Would be great day hike.

Great hike... great for swimming and rock climbing

Such a cool place to explore and the directions take you straight there. Def check out the cave and go all the way back, flash lights are a must!

Love this so beautiful and trails are perfect as well. Beautiful waterfalls.

Beautiful waterfall! The trail is challenging in many parts. More rocks than trail, but worth it.

short but sweet little walk!! want to go back with a headlamp with batteries that aren't dead!

really nice waterfall right at the beginning of the hike. can swim, but very cold year round. very awesome cliff views at the top. one of my favorite trails in TN!

This is a beautiful trail. You'll see streams and waterfalls, particularly if there has been much rain before your hike. There are two ways to go to Raven Point. One is the Fiery Gizzard Trail that takes you through a rugged gorge and the other is the Dog Hole Trail that has simpler terrain. The FG terrain in the gorge is brutal - lots of crazy, slippery rocks at odd angles. Dog Hole has enough challenge for most people.

When you get to Raven Point, it's a 270 degree view from 500 feet above the gorge. Great spot for lunch.

A friend recommended this as a great water site. I didn't know what to expect so when I saw it was bolder climbing I was a little nervous and excited. The trail is marked with markers to guide you. The view was amazing!! Places to sit and soak your feet, swim in and around the falls. Take a hammock it is a great place to rest and rejuvenate. It is crowded when the weather is nice and warm, but with it. The trip up is a little rough if you aren't used to hiking and are out of shape but I didn't mind.
