Hiked this 5 mile round trip trail with my 6 and 7 year olds. There are some steep inclines, but they are spread out which is nice. A few spots to take a break and let the kids splash in the water, and even one...More

Great hike located in the middle of Cades Cove loop. A pretty good hike with hills. Falls are incredible. Do not try to swim at the falls. People drown there every year. Just go for the beautiful scenery.

I liked this hike. It’s about 5 miles round trip and, although there are some inclines, the trail is not too hard. The family we were with had small children and they made it just fine. The scenery is breathtaking, and the falls are beautiful....More

I have done a lot of hiking and visited many places that took my breath away. This is an easy hike. Maybe moderate for those who are not active much. The falls is nice with heavy stream. Overall, I'm kind of neutral with this place.

The drive to and from the trailhead may take longer than the hike itself. Two 27/28 year olds (distance runners) hiked to the falls in 50 minutes and back in around 45 minutes. It is a beautiful trail with some inclines, but compared to other...More

Went here on a day while exploring Cades Cove.  My biggest advice is: hike it in the morning because of shade.  Lots of the trail is uncovered, so in the late Spring it gets very hot.  It is a longish trail that is up and...More

Beautiful falls. This hike took us 3 hours. Take water and small snack. It's moderately strenuous with three elevated areas (they're fairly short inclines). Wear good shoes and keep the little ones close by because there are a few steep drop offs. This is a...More

Enjoyed all the sites along the 2.5 mile hike in to the falls. We saw a deer in the creek drinking water. So beautiful!

The hike was a little strenuous. Maybe because we had already hiked several miles before this point. The views are great and it was not busy the day we went. Actually only saw a few people leaving the trail as we started the hike.
