“Beautiful waterfall in the Smokies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is a very short (maybe ten minutes) hike to the falls. We were lucky and there had been quite a bit of rain and the falls were beautiful. There were quite a few steps to climb but well worth it.

“Mingo Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

It was very beautiful, but be warned the hike up there can be a challenge, it's a clear path with steps but there are a lot of them.

“pretty falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

These falls are a slow hike to see but worth the effort. A must see on a day trip through the park.

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This is well worth walking up the 100 steps to see... it is absolutely beautiful. But I would advise you to get up early and go before it gets to hot.
