“Great walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

I read the reviews for this trail and chose it because it was not too long. It was about a little over one hour to get there and about 40 minutes to get back. It was a busy trail and the falls had a lot of people, but it was a holiday weekend. Still very fun times.

“Favorite waterfall yet!”

Nice moderate hike in the Smokies, not as hard as Abrams Falls. Beautiful fall & got amazing family picture behind the falls.

“Very good hiking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

it is a small fall in roaring fork where you need to do hiking for 1.2 miles, the hiking is very nice there and you don't get tired at all due to the nice weather. I strongly recommend going to Grotto falls.

“Grotto Falls Smoky Mt.'s”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

We decided to go the the Smoky Mountains in mid May, ahead of Memorial Day & kids getting out of school so we might avoid the crowds, and we feel like it was the perfect time! We hired a guide from "A walk in the woods", Jamie - she picked us up at the lodge at Buckberry Creek" where we were staying at. Was a beautiful drive of about 20mins to the trail, by then it was raining a bit, but when your in the woods the tree's block a lot and our guide said was great for less people on the trail and cooler for us, and it was great! The hike was Moderate, a little muddy because of the rain but breath taking the hole time and as we got to the falls because of the rain it was grand! There were about 6 people there and then they left and it was just us! Had a great time! Our guide from "A walk in the woods" was great, on time and reasonable price! Would recommend this hike for anyone!
