Nice trail. Lots of rain the night before and raining while we ran it, and the trail did not hold water. Plus, the view is beautiful!

This trail is amazing and had an awesome hike! Hiked this in partial rain with significant fog but it was still very nice and I will do it again one day to try to catch the views. I read the review regarding crampons for the latter of the hike and wish I would have taken the advice - it was definitely doable without, but it would have been more comfortable with.

Great trail! Easy to follow. Not crowded.

Great trail! Some noise from the traffic on Highway 100 at the beginning if you go right, but much more quiet once you get to the top and come back down.

Nice trail to take a short walk. It was a good trail for my dog also. Lots of traffic. Many people running and walking dogs. Noticed a lot of people don’t keep their dogs on a leash here, which isn’t a problem usually because there’s lots of space between you and others.

Short easy ascent to nice waterfall. Dog friendly Path had lots of small sharp edged stones. I regretted wearing my trail running sneakers I got footsore fast. Only one other party on trail on a sunny Saturday afternoon in October. Some nice looking fishing holes too!

nice little trail with a pleasant reward at the falls

is just ok

This is a well marked trial, but the dozens of fallen trees make it harder to navigate. The views from the lower trail are better, but this trail still had a lot to offer. It is marked as an overnight trail, but it can certainly be covered in a day.

This is my first time hiking on a trail. I walked on the small loop around the trench and decided to go onto the wooded trail. It was a short walk to a gravel road. I followed the gravel road to another wooded trail. A woman passed me as I was checking the time on my phone and said to enjoy my walk. I decided to go the same direction as her and did not see a soul for over an hour! I did see about ten deer and many birds and squirrels. The trail is marked with white paint on the trees, but one time the trail seemed to end in the woods. I was able to find another marked tree and was back on the trail. The trail has a lot of rocks and was muddy and covered with leaves after several days of rain. I loved how secluded and alone I was. It was an unexpected long trail for a new hiker, but enjoyable one. I was on the trail for about 2 hrs and 15 mins. for the whole loop. I will come with my camera and take my time when I come back.

A little steep, but great views at the top! Very well marked

Easy trail and nice views. Quick hike to a decent waterfall.

Worth the hike up the mountain. The water fall was gorgeous and refreshing to see after the walk. Breathtaking views of the mountain from the top.

Great hike. Very difficult at sections (it was snow capped and iced over) in sections near the waterways, from the recent snow melt. Some challenges upward but worth the efforts when you reach the observation platform.

saw the eclipse from here back in 2017, saw it today w the ridge covered in half a foot of snow and ice fog, amazing both times

nice easy in and out Trail but the view from the top of the Rocks at the lookout is awesome

Very snowy and at sections icy. A great climb in the winter with spectacular views. I added some pics with this review. Be cautious climbing near the river sections, snow melt is high from the recent dumping and had iced over on bare rocks.

awesome trail with amazing views. steep start going down some rugged stairs but otherwise perfect trail to get your heart pumping and falling in love with the overlooks around the Tennessee river

awesome trail with amazing views. a must do hike for anyone visiting or living in Chatt-town

There was a very good amount of snow at the top, which made it somewhat challenging. The view at the very top is so worth it! Dress warm! The way down was challenging too, there are lots of trees down and debris. Overall more than we expected which made it wonderful. The bullhead way down was fairly muddy, and very much less traveled.

Once you make it up to the top of Mt. Leconte it’s a must to go to cliff top! Have fun!

Love this hike loved it more when I could climb to the top, I personally think this is harder than hiking to Mount Le Conte. I recommend doing some hills and longer hikes prior to this one. The view is still stunning from the overlook. This is a must do hike in the park

Trail is poorly marked even w the GPS. Kept getting lost and stuck in the bushes.
Ended up having to get back down before reaching the top ... would not recommend it especially during the winter.

amazing trail if your up for a challenge

Beautiful hike on a cold December day. Well worth it

Beautiful hike with stunning views throughout! Quick and easy hike that is well worth your time.

This is a challenging trail. It has a very steep and rocky climb. The trail is well marked and has nice views, including a peak overlook.
