As heavily trafficked as this trail is I was surprised by the overgrowth. The signage is nonexistent. Made a wrong choice at a no sign split and entered into the path of the secret garden. The over hanging kudzu made for beautiful doorways to enter into the unknown, but climbing through them was a bit difficult. We finally got ourselves turned around and made it to the top. We didn’t mind the adventure but for a non local , signs would be helpful.

Trails were not maintained very well. It would have been super easy to get loat, trails are marked by blue dots on trees.

Love this trail. Although there are places that are somewhat overgrown and full of chiggers, the trail overall it's great. Not to difficult in my opinion, but had some good parts that were challenging. Have been twice in the last 3 weeks.

Very well marked trails. Lots of spider webs lol. Some great places to sit and think along the trail. Very quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed the trail very much.

Can be a bit of a treacherous descent and a hard climb out, but well worth the effort.

Nice, easy trail that nearly everyone can do and be rewarded with a gorgeous site at the end. Only challenge is avoiding the crowds :(

great trail and a lot to see. loved the old farm house and barn.

We had a great time. We were able to run or jog most of it. Lots of options for different trails as well.

There is a ton to see packed in a really small area! It was absolutely worth the drive to check out these trails and they will be 5+ stars once they are done with construction. We brought our 3 1/2 yo with us based on others reviews and he had a tough time with the incline up the Cascade trail and the narrow trails before the old log road. He had a blast playing in the creek and falls though!

All of the reviews were very helpful. The entire trail is easy until you get to the falls. When you turn left at the falls sign, the last 100 yards is descending down stairs and a slippery root filled trail. This was an excellent first hike in Tennessee.

Strenuous 1/2 mile hike (one way), slightly to very crowded depending on day/time, totally worth the views.

Nice walk. Falls small but pretty.

This was a nice day hike. The trail itself is fairly unremarkable, the two things that make it great are the Cane Creek Overlook and the harrowing trip down the cable side trail to the base of Cane Creek Falls. We will definitely be back.

The road up there was gravel and bumpy, but any car can make it. The hike itself was beautiful. Definitly wear good shoes because some spots are slick. Beautiful was tho. Make sure to take North Side trail. I'm a chunky woman and it was still easy for me:)

This trail was amazing great scenery of the water and the mountains, the waterfalls at the end is worth the hike. The walking bridges that you crossing overlooking the water is great. You want be disappointment at all. I had lunch at the top then walked back down the 4 miles. A total of 8 miles that I really enjoyed. the weather was great it rained a little but with all my sweat i didn’t even notice.

Technical but short hike. Nice fall at the end. A lot of climbers out today!

Shade great had a refreshment at the the kitchen ,deer ,good folks ,18 mii

Fun hike with a great view at Signal Point! We loved seeing the bridges, creeks, and boulders throughout the route. There were many rocks and tree roots to traverse along the trail. Watch trail signs as some of the trails seem to cross at certain points. We definitely enjoyed this hike!

I found a couple spots of this trail to be a little more difficult than “beginner level.”
But it’s worth the climb out. Beautiful falls! And much of the hike is alongside a creek.
There were lots of folks on the trail when I went in late April. Pack your patience for the Cade’s Cove Koop on the weekend :)

We've started taking our 6 year old son hiking and he absolutely loved this one. We used Google maps to get there and it took us right to the trail head. He loved getting in the little pools of water hiking up to the main fall. This trail is definitely kid friendly.

Fairly easy hike. Went there with my dog and it was a good distance and level of difficulty to make her tired. We came across a few families with children who all seemed to be doing alright. There terrain is not flat so keep that in mind. The scenery is beautiful.

so, we totally went off trail. Trekked up river, swam, slipped, fell. great little spots to just sit and picnic. Second time here. kids love it, especially when they lead!

I completed this trail as a day hike. It is extremely beautiful. The mileage and strenuous rating are accurate. The path is extremely rocky along the old stagecoach section, and there are boulder scrambles in both directions from the beginning of the loop. This is a really nice hike, but I would recommend less experienced hikers build up to this trail and allot plenty of time for completion. Big Creek Gulf and Rim trails are easier and may be a good test run before venturing this way.

My go to hike while I was stationed at Fort Campbell, KY. I would highly recommend to all who love to hike, bike, or trail run.

I hiked it this morning, hoping to see a sunrise at the top. However the rain clouds blocked any “red” from the chimney top you can see. The trail is well maintained and easy to hike in the dark with a head lamp. I’m hoping they work on the last quarter of a mile and open it to the public so you can get closer to the unique tops.

This is a wonderful trail. It has a great mix of overlooks, incredible rock formations, and forest settings. The trail is well maintained and easy to navigate. There is enough elevation change to warrant the moderate rating and provide a good workout. This is definitely one of my favorite trails in this area.
