Bring lots of water and snacks if you're taking the kiddies on this trek. Keep an eye out for the signage when driving in. We missed the turn and parked at the general store down the road. Had to take a separate trail to get to this trail. Overall, very worth the hike. One to remember.

Of the waterfall hikes we did while visiting GSMNP, this was by far my family's favorite over Laurel Falls and Grotto Falls , which were both too crowded! This is a great peaceful hike, with a beautiful waterfall at the end that you can get close too and take awesome pictures! When we were there, early on a weekday morning,... More

Pictured beautiful fall. Seen better waterfalls driving in the mts. Wasn't worth the 4 hr hike. I paid for it dearly. If you have health, back or leg problems stay away. Wish I was warned. If you do hike take water, food, flashlight and knife. Never know what might happen. be prepared. My boys 12 and 10 didn't enjoy it... More

Long hike. Rugged terrain. The falls were nice but by 1 1/2 hours we had built up a bigger idea of the falls. Would be a challenge for smaller kids or people who are not as active. Nice rocks to picnic on at the falls

We hiked this trail on Christmas day, and really enjoyed the vistas along this trail. It had been raining like crazy most of the week, so the streams were all really high. This was a relatively easy hike which most of the way borders the stream. Because of all the rain, the waterfall had a lot of water coming over... More

Hike will take around 3 hours so be sure to allot that much for it. The path is well traveled and you will occasionally see other people on the way there or back, however if you were to get injured it is rough terrain and low cell signal so be prepared. Wear proper shoes or boots and bring plenty of... More

It's a 5+ mile round trip, over some times uneven surface with rocks and roots, so be sure to wear appropriate shoes. The trail is up and down a lot, but there are also several sections of the trail that are relatively flat. All in all, I'd rate it as a moderate hike. I'd allow 3 hours minimum for the... More

This Waterfall was worth the hike. The trail is rocky and you have to watch your step. You walk along the river which makes for great scenery. Saw turkeys and squirrels during December.

Not a easy hike. .My wife and I made it to the falls, ate a sandwich and made it back to the parking area in less than 3 hours. .But we seep hike with only one break at the mid point..Great views of Mill Creek and Abrams Creek ..

On the local maps, it seems this trail is just a simple, straight to/from. However we found it to be a bit winding with one V shaped turn. This is definitely more than just a simple stroll through the park. There are parts where the climb is steep and very rocky. Be sure to wear proper hiking shoes, and being... More
