This is a moderately difficult hike that provides the most scenic and adventurous trip step-for-step. The trail starts off pretty easy and has you hike by a rushing stream with some great spots to stop for pictures, a picnic, or a great and peaceful view. Further up the trail gets more adventurous as you hike over the stream on some log bridges (with railings) and along some rocky areas. The trail itself is just really fun and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The end-point of the Alum Cave is really nice...I was able to see it around sundown and really enjoyed it. You also have the option of continuing up to Mount LeConte...which is the highest peak in the park...from the Alum Cave.
This is highly recommended for anybody seeking a thoroughly enjoyable hike. However, it isn't as tourist friendly as some of the more beaten paths, so be sure to be in decent shape!
