Nice trail, a bit slick this time of year with all the fallen leaves, so take care. Cant wait to come back in the summer and do some swimming!

Great views and beautiful woods. The trail is moderate but you can make it difficult in those areas where it’s hard to relocate the trail.

Well marked and maintained trail. Great views off the bluff and will be even better when the leaves finish falling. I’ll be back again for sure.

Beautiful! Well marked. Huge rock formations.

This hike is a lot longer than 8 miles. We went exactly four miles in and didn’t even make it halfway according to the map so it’s gotta be at least 12 miles in and 12 miles back out.

Beautiful scenery..... seemed in good shape to me. A little challenging but will definitely repeat.

Tough, tough trail that seems like it hadn't been taken care of in years. Needs work but certainly a challenge

This is a nice trail but be prepared for some pretty steep downhills and ups on your way back. There is a blowdown across the trail 1.25 miles from the trail head. It’s in a pretty sketchy location so I didn’t attempt to find a way around it (I am old and fat so you young kids can probably get around it.

very easy hike along a Creek with a couple of spots to get in or let your pup swim. went on labor day and it was getting busy by 10am. some pretty rock formations along the way as well. cool in the morning at 9am but was getting pretty warm by 10am. earlier is probably better if you don't like crowds.

Some nice views, a small waterfall. But there are no stone houses.

The waterfall is more of a wet rock right now, but still a good hike, relatively easy with a couple uphill sections. The left path is definitely a bit more rocky with more ups and downs. Measured 3 miles, an hour and a half out and back with a couple diversions. If someone could take a gray can of spray paint and cover up some unfortunate markings, that would be even better.

About 2 miles in you hit an overgrown path of poison ivy. Recommend wearing pants lots of thorny bushes in that portion of the path. A few areas have small paths that you need to be careful they are like cliffhangers a misstep could take you downhill. The markings are white, about 5 miles in we decided to turn back because of heat and water levels. Beautiful views in some areas, water was nice and cool to put our buffs in to cool us off. The hike back I would say was physically harder than going in with the terrain. On the ten miles only one other person seen on the trail all day. We were training for an upcoming VA Xtreme Hike which made this a great trail to fit in

This is the first TN trail I’ve gone to explore. The trail head is easily accessible and the trail before the bridge over the river is a wide gravel path, very easy to follow. The trail leads passed a few beautiful swimming areas, very child friendly, and waterfalls. Once you cross the bridge the trail transforms into more of a dirt beat down path and the trail has multiple lay downs across it. I recommend the beginning of the trail to anyone wanting a safe area to take the family for a picnic/swimming adventure.

The wildflowers are beautiful in early April!

This was probably the most boring but hard hike I’ve done in a long time. If it hasn’t rained a lot then you’re going to want to wait for cooler weather and pack plenty water. The water was sparse and even the water near the campsite was super hard to get to. You have to slide down a steep hill to get to it and it’s hard as heck to get back up. Tons of rocks near the campsite and lots of snakes. I’ve seen the most snakes near my site. More than I’ve seen on any complete hike lol

Great trail. Very easy wide trail for about 1.2 miles. Then it splits. Went up right side first. Shortly after you pass a gate there is a beautiful deep turquoise colored crystal clear pool (when the sun hits it) on your right. Very cold but so nice. We walked up the creek on the side of it also. We’ll back on the trail you have quite a few logs, rocky and it gets narrower. We used a stick to avoid spiderwebs. We got to the waterfall but there was only a slight trickle. Pretty scenery though. We hiked back down and then went down the left trail which is much flatter. It ends at another creek which is also nice for swimming but not as clear and definitely warmer. Overall very nice hike. I ran the last 1.5 miles back to the car and did a few loops, therefore I had a total of 6 miles.

Good exercise climbing up to the strip mine falls. Unfortunately not much water at waterfalls. Just like others said, I highly recommend to go pass beyond the falls. Rocks are gorgeous and amazing view. I wanted to go at least to the Rogers creek overlook (2.3 mile from the trail head) but I turned around just before the overlook because of over grown trail. I would definitely go back in winter.

nice views from the bluffs in the winter

This time I parked at Retro Hughes Trailhead and hiked to the falls and back Love following along the creek but it was all muddy from the recent rains. A couple trees down on the trail but nothing impassable. One overgrown section with briars. Looked at the campsites - they're not on the creek or easy access to water but you can hear the creek and one was very spacious. Lots of pretty sections - my favorite is probably the ferns. Be careful - the rocks are REALLY slippery. My doggy enjoyed our hike today - plenty of sticks to choose from
