You'll most likely need to get a little wet to see this one. Not as wet as Cummins, but you still need to plan for stepping through a shallow stream. The bulk of the trail is a fairly flat walk through the woods. I'd suggest counterclockwise. I like to tackle the steep part (without steps) going up as opposed to going down. It's a great fall to see. If you have smaller kids it would probably be a nice fall to play in, since the stream below is fairly shallow.

Beautiful waterfall!!!!

Very easy trail, great for walking, running, or biking.

This really is a great drive for all ages, but especially for those with kids. It's a fun way to see a good portion of the park, with a really nice paved one-way path.

We stopped and did a 3 hour hike on one of the many trailheads that are accessible on the road, and there are also many scenic spots as well as historic houses and farms to stop and get out at. Be sure to keep your eyes open the entire way - we saw a young black bear on a hill right next to the road!

really great. enjoyed every minute of it

We took this scenic drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway to Clingmans Dome and back. Lots of trails to either side. Places to stop and take everything. An open area that elk can be seen on some days.

Excellent, beautiful, wild hydrangeas, wild azaleas or rhododendrons couldn't tell. This will be a regular place for me. Totally forget about the world here.
