easy loop. great view of the lake. lots of traffic, but several spots you can stop off at the lake. one if my staples close to home.

The cave area was really cool in temperature and for viewing. Loud construction going on at the lake.

Clear day and nice views when you're clear of trees. Beware though -- the observation tower itself is now closed for maintenance.

Great hike. Between the view and the bridges it was a wonderful day in the wood.

A nice hike with plenty to see. It gets a bit tough after the bridge...the trail there is composed mostly of rock sized between a pumpkin and a softball. Overall the trail is rather easy with moderate sections.

took the panther branch trail to Mac, upto the lookout total mileage was 8.4 .pretty much uphill the whole way. was not bad though at all. amazing scenery.worth every step,to top out frozen head.

Nice easy trail, fun for all. It is an open trail for Mountain Bikes and Hikers, so watch out. Waterfall does depend on rain. Can get a little crowded at times, but still worth the look.

Start at Jake's Creek and get the hard part , ( relatively speaking ) done first. Rhododendron tunnels and beautiful water features. Don't miss the footbridge just .4 miles south of intersection with Little River Trail.

Informative, interesting , easy, accessible.

Great hike all together. I parked at the top of Rich Mountain and entered the trailhead from the top location. The parking area can be accessed from both Townsend or Caves Cove. Be prepared for a continuous incline/decline throughout the hike loop . I was looking forward to seeing Crooked Arm Cascades while on the trail but it was pretty much dry and non existent due to the lack of rain.

Great views!
