The hike itself was beautiful lots of places to stop and take pictures! Being a beginning hiker and honestly not too in shape it was enjoyable. You can stop and and rest and natures beauty if you get tired. The falls were so pretty too. Loved the experience :)

I was a fan of the first 3/4 mile and thought it was a beautiful hike but after that . It got rough-maybe some storms had been in the area and lotn of debris downed limbs. Had to be very careful. No big deal. Made for an interesting hike. Crossed stream several times and really enjoyed the flora and fauna.... More

We hiked this trail after going white water rafting. It was much quieter and more remote than the other hikes closer to Gatlinburg. It was very rooty and rocky on the trail. It was a little more difficult than other trails we had done. There were some very narrow points along the trail, and the last part of it is... More

Easy access from picnic parking lot on east side of park. Trail is easy to access with three log bridges to cross and gentle climb up. Last walk of 200 yards is steep decent but worse going down than coming up. Average size falls with large rocks at base and some water flow in July but not near as spectacular... More

My husband I hiked to Hen Walls Falls in June of 2014. We are not out of shape but we are also not super in shape. We are also in our early 30s. We found this hike doable but we did have to catch our breath a few time. The whole hike took about 3 hours which includes hanging out... More

My wife and I arrived at the trailhead around 7am and the area was completely empty. The trail is just over 2 miles, mostly uphill and very uneven (lots of roots) in parts. On the way to the falls we didn't pass a single person, but we did see black shape moving far off in the distance. I'm sure it... More

This was a tough trail for me. It is entirely up hill on the way to the falls. I am not in the greatest of shape, but I made it. This waterfall is more of a steep cascade than a fall, but it is very pretty and rewards all who make it. The trail was not very busy.

The trailhead which is located in Crosby camping area is approximately a 45 minute drive from pigeon Forge. The drive goes through foothill countryside and is interesting in its own right. the hike which is approximately 2.1 miles is moderately difficult on the inward journey since it's mostly uphill but should be accessible for most hikers. The falls were beautiful... More

This was quite a fun, somewhat difficult hike with a lovely waterfall at the end. Depending on your starting point, the hike is 4-5 miles roundtrip. We did not give ourselves enough time, and did not finish before dark (of course we packed flashlights, so it was okay). The trail was too difficult for our four year old, who had... More

This was a moderate level hike. I am pretty fit and so is my husband and we did stop a few times to catch our breathe. However, the falls were worth it. We didn't run across too many other hikers so make sure you are a prepared hiker. There is a sign warning of bear activity. Overall its probably one... More
