Tough hike. Not for young children or older adults. This hike made for rough walking at times. Nice waterfall when you got there.

It's a strenuous 3 hours, but SOOOO worth it when you reach the falls! You won't be alone there, so wear a swimsuit under your clothes if you plan to swim in the falls. Beautiful and refreshing!

This was a quick and easy hike, and at the end is a waterfall with great photo opportunities. We were disappointed, many people that day saw a black bear and cubs but we just missed them! The trail is well maintained. I saw a few people in flip flops, even though the trail is easier than many others in the... More

It took us about 3 hours, ok 4 to get there, please do not hike wearing sandals or flip flops I saw many kids and adults as well doing that, the terrain is very difficult!! It's worth it though!

Amazing waterfall. Definitely worth the hike. It is a long hike but once you get there you can take a quick dip into the water. Very refreshing! One of my favorite hikes in the Smoky Mountains.

My husband and I took our 4 teenagers on this hike. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to the falls if you keep an average pace and stop a few times for pictures in some scenic areas. So plan on 3-4 hours total. It's a 5 1/2 mile hike there and back. My fitness level is about average.... More

Be prepared to go on a great adventurous hike that will take your breath away literally and figuratively. Takes about 3-4 hours and is not for the faint of heart. Pretty good waterfall at the end.

This is a great hike! You will know you've been hiking after you are done. The hike is moderate. Lots of going up! My husband is a little out of shape and had some difficulty keeping up. When you get to the falls, you'll know it was worth the trip.

A great hike, which was a little more strenuous than I thought it would be. This was a lot less crowded than Laurel Falls. Although, the parking lot was overflowing when we left. Make sure you bring plenty of water and your bathing suit. The cold water at the end was refreshing after a long, hot hike. There are plenty... More
