All reviews easy hike steep steps picnic tables short hike mile round trip nice hike beautiful waterfall rock steps well worth the effort native trees rushing water all ages falls cascading rhododendrons mst plaques
The trail down to the falls is an easy hike although the steps down the falls themselves can be a bit slick and are narrow. The loop around the other side of the creek is also a lovely walk. A great way to spend an...More
There’s a lot to love about this nice little trail right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. 1. There are nice bathrooms at the parking area and that’s not easy to find. 2. The trail is more of a nice short walk in the woods than...More
Nice loop hike to a waterfall. Some steep rock steps at the end, but mostly a fairly easy trail. The log bridge is nice. Keep a close eye on your kids on this trail as some of the overlook rails are a bit low.
Planning a trip on the blue ridge parkway? Include the cascade falls and schedule your stop at meal time. Take a picnic basket and take advantage of the picnic tables and large lawn for playing frisbee, then take a short hike to the falls before...More
Walked this short trail with our dog. Goes around in a loop, and follows a lovely stream which ends up as the Cascades Fall. Some steep steps to get down to platforms to see the falls, but worth it. Very dramatic and steep falls into...More
We went to E.B. Jeffress Park — Cascade Trail yesterday in Purlear, NC... The trail is not very long... Nice trail with a beautiful waterfall... Ended up hiking it in the rain, but it still was a nice walk... Be careful on the rock stairs...More
We did this as a late afternoon hike since we didn't have a lot of time left before meeting friends for dinner. 30 minutes is a fair estimate for a leisurely pace. It is a hike, not a walk in the park. It has rustic...More
The pull off for the trail had nice picnic tables but stepping over the parking lot barrier was a challenge for anyone with a cane, crutches, bad knees or hips. We never made it to the falls as the stairwell near the en had no...More

Not sure which map you're looking at but if you're using GPS type in Cascade Falls NC 28664 it's actually located right on the BRP in Jeffress Park. Should be mile marker 272 and one half. Hope this helps you, it's a... More

hiya, i will be staying with 2 others in the deer ridge mountain resort(few miles east of gatlinburg) for 3 nights(14,15,16/10) arriving on a sunday night. 1. im guessing there will be lots of traffic there this time of year. so, what suggestions do you have for medium hikes which wont be overrun? ... reading through these forums i think we might try Ramsay Cascades Trail for a start. 2. whats the best time to do the cades cove drive? 3. is it sensible to drive trough the park at...More

Ramsey Cascades is a very good hike and the cascades are beautiful. You will probably only pass a few people on the trail, but there could be quite a few people gathered at the cascades. Another hike that we enjoyed was Rainbow Falls. We only saw a few other people on this trail. If you start early, that is your best bet for beating the crowds. The most crowded trails will be Laurel Falls, Grotto Falls, & Chimney Tops. The best time to drive Cades Cove if you don't want any traffic is...More
Basin-cascades Trail to the Lonesome Lake trail? (6 Replies)
How long would it take to reach Lonesome lake by starting at the Basin, going up the Basin-Cascades trail to the Lonesome lake trail to the lake?
