Anthony Creek Trail to Bote Mountain to the AT. It's around 16miles with over 3700k in elevation change both ways. Most stunning views I've seen yet in the Smokies from both Spence Field and Rocky Top well worth the effort in and out. Late spring/early summer the rhododendron are in bloom making it even more unreal!

That said this was hands down the most intense hike I've done in the Smokies. My knees and hips took an absolute beating today coming out, even with trekking poles. Take plenty of water. Once you're off Anthony creek trail there is no water source until Spence Field shelter (which is the opposite direction of Rock Top) and remember to always filter back country water.

When they say for experienced hikers that is what they mean. It was a great trail but just starting out hiking probably should have picked another one. Views are breathtaking worth the hike

I would consider the trail easy rather than moderate. Kids had no problems enjoyed the falls and playing in the water

Thought it was a fun hike

I biked this loop this morning with a rented bike. get there very early if you need to do that. they sell out. the early morning is the best time to see the mist on the mountains and see the wildlife

Love this trail!!! Great views all the way to to the top.


This was my first TN hike and finally got to do it again. Unfortunately we couldn't make it down to the bottom due to the stairs being out but still a lot of fun. We took the easy trail out and came back on the moderate to see the three waterfalls. Overall a very scenic hike that I can't wait to do again.

great hike! I did this in 2016. climbing the fire tower at the end makes it all worth it. and sticking my feet in the creek at the end lol

great trail. arrive early for a hike without the crowds
