Review of Cosby Picnic Area

Cosby Picnic Area
Reviewed April 29, 2012

I liked this pinic area like many in the park this one sits next to a creek, river or lake whichever you would like to call it. So you could sit at the tables and look out over the water. We got awesome pictures hanging out next top the water and we saw trails for hiking but neither of us felt like hiking so that will have to wait for another trip.

This is a lovely spot to gather with friends and family. Before or after eating, take the one-mile self-guided nature hike through the quiet historical area. It is simply lovely.

Wanted to find somewhere to eat lunch and hike away from the crowds while in the smokies and sure found what we were looking for at the Cosby Picnic Area. No one was there, but beautiful clean picnic tables and restroom facilities. Lots of shade. Hiking trails are very close by and my husband, 12 year old daughter and I went hiking on a 2.4 mile hike on a trail to Hen Wallow Falls. The trail was rated moderate out of easy, moderate and strenuous. Although, the trail was very beautiful and shaded....I woudn't call it moderate! It took us over 3 hours to walk the 4.8 mile loop which at times was VERY STRENUOUS. Make sure to bring a water bottle for each person and have good shoes to make the hike and have plenty of time to make the hike and be ready to see some gorgeous scenery including small bridges and brooks. Just beautiful. Very remote -- only saw 5 sets of hikers the entire trail. Although, we were in for a bit more than we expected...the hiking trail was well worth the time and we're very glad we found it!
