Easy and good for short morning or afternoon hike.

Nice paved walk. Well-maintained park. Some parts are hilly. Lots of interesting historic information to read.

Awesome trail for being less than 15 mins from Nashville. Lot of terrain change...pine/oak/cedar/exposed sandstone. Very cool. Saw a lot of wildlife...squirrels, ducks, rabbit, 2 loons and a huge owl! Very well marked and traveled.

Very hard if you are not in the best shape, but super worth it! It is so beautiful at the top.

Snow and ice on the way up and slush and mud on the way down. It was great!

Really fun and enjoyable climb

Great hikes on well maintained trails; phenomenal view of the waterfalls.Cant wait to return!

Nice easy trail. Once you get past the old settlement a mile or so in, the visitors really taper off.

See an old farm. See others see an old farm.

I consider this to be part of the Gregory Bald Loop, which includes Parson Branch Rd and Gregory Bald Ridge Trail. Good tough loop with relatively light traffic. Enjoy.

Great hike, great views, best hike in the smokeys. It is straight uphill so you want to be in decent shape to be able to do this. It is also very crowded through the Summer. If you can get a cabin up at LeConte Lodge, it's very pleasant and relaxing.

Perfect place for a day hike with the family. Other than a few steep climbs, not a bad trek at all— plus the AMAZING views will keep you pretty distracted, and triggers a strong sense of motivation to explore more! We went in mid March 2018 while it was a bit chilly + snowy and had a blast!

Love this trail! Not sure I would say easy especially the very end of trail but can be done!

This trail is great if you can get past the garbage, clothes, and glass at the beginning. So many little falls, cascades, and fun swimming spots. Love the diversity of this trail. Interstate noise can be heard but just tune it out and enjoy the beautiful creek!

First part of Trail is nice, the last half of trail is very rocky, very slick, narrow, and tough! I do not recommend this for newbies, young children, or anyone with knee issues. The last half is not very well marked, needs a few more trail markers.

Really, three things stuck out. First, portions of the trail are very poorly marked. Second, the loop portion of the trail is poorly maintained. Third, a portion of the trail doubles as an ATV trail and was little more than deep, muddy ruts.

No thanks.

Good local walking trail -especially in the off-season when traffic isn't so heavy.

Amazing trail! It was a great short hike to our day. We had 6 of us on the walk including an 8 year and a 7 year old who absolutely loved the trail and of course the falls. It is definitely a moderate trail so be ready for some roots and rocks!

This was a very easy trail, but there were a lot of tree roots to be aware of. I was able to easily carry my 3 month old in a sling. We did not start at the official trailhead, we picked up the trail in the campground, but it was still very well marked the whole way and from where we started, it took us about an hour and a half. We will defiantly be doing this trail again.

Great short hike with awesome waterfalls and an amazing view at the top. I’ve known about this trail for a long time and have seen the peak from the interstate thousands of times but I only finally got around to doing it today. And now I can’t wait to go back. There was very little trash on the trail but I could see where it is probably much more popular in the summer. The climb after the foot bridge is short but gets the heart going. Highly recommend for a great, quick hike.

Short hike. Water flowing nicely. Definitely NOT Hard as AllTrails rated. A little steep in some places but not difficult at all. Several nice cascades. Parking is available for only one car at the trailhead.

Really enjoyed it!

This is a pretty nice trail with plenty of parking, but you don't want to go after it's rained. There are a lot of areas that get muddy.

It was a nice trail, went by myself and it took me about 4 days. It is definitely tough though, be prepared for steep inclines

This is a steep decent down to beautiful waterfalls. Also continued on to Boardwalk Falls. Loved the trail and Falls. Neat metal staircase you descend beside bluff. Rocky, rooty, a Little muddy. Much fun!!

Went through Stone Door into the gorge. Very rocky, but once down there, wildflowers were everywhere! Beautiful The bolder filled creek was dry, but hiked to a Ranger falls anyway. It was running great, with a small rainbow at bottom. It goes underground, that’s why you see no water in creek bed. Going on along BCG Trail, I came upon another smaller waterfall. It also runs back underground, as does Big Creek, which you will see for the remainder of the hike out of gorge. Very rocky climb out to the rim. Rim trail has a few nice overlooks. I would rate this moderate, with steep climb at end. Don’t wear flip-flops!!

Fun little day hike with nice views
