This trail is easy and has lots of interactive information about the plants and animals that live in the surrounding area. It was great for smaller children to hike on their own and commune with nature.

If you're short on time, do this easy hike near the Sugarlands Visitor's Center. You walk along the creek for a bit and there is a waterfall at the end. Perfect for all ages.

I walked this a nice sunny afternoon this week, then went back in the drizzle another day. The walk through the woods, by the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River was beautiful and informative.

My husband and I wanted a quiet, easy walk on a overcast day that was forecasting rain so we decided to check this out. It was beautiful and educational. Fully paved so it wouls be a good short trail for people of all ages and needs.

This is a very nice and easy walk on a paved trail. Very pretty walk with a river to take pictures beside. There are old chimneys left over from the old days. This is a short walk that loops around. Great for anyone who wants a short and easy walk with beautiful views.

This short paved walk was very nice! It follows along the West prong of the Little Pigeon River. If you step away from the walkway, you can go right down to the river where there are water falls, rocks and beautiful photo ops! Worth the time to stop by and take the gentle stroll.

This was an impulse hike, and a pleasant surprise. The trail is easy to follow, relatively level, and set in an idyllic forest. It's just long enough that we felt like we'd accomplished something, but not so long that we wished we were done halfway through. And the waterfall at the end of it was just lovely!

Nothing but a wonderful drive... enjoy the drive, the view, and the wildlife. The roadside creeks are beautiful, with a huge variety of rock formations and creek bed varieties

We used this trail for our runs as was gravel and maintained well for a 4 mile total trail. Easy area to park in at the visitor center and restrooms as well.
