Beautiful. Well worth the hike. Easy to moderate trails. Took lots of pictures. Bugs not to bad. Felt good to stretch our legs a little, glad we did it. Sweet lady in the visitor center was very helpful with any questions.

We stayed for a new year's trip in the area a few years ago and really enjoyed the sound of the water at night. The local shop's were good, and exploring the area is fun. I would say that it would definately be more fun in the summer, but was pleasant in the winter.

Well worth the hike, for the coolness and fresh mountain air. You'll never be disappointed, going to the NC Mountains.

filled with loud families, because it is easy to get to. not true nature lovers. heard several different groups complain that you could not purchase H20 or that there were no bathrooms on the trail. could not enjoy nature. might try to go back in the off season
