“most amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2011

I loved the hike. I'm out of shape and I have arthritis in my knees but the hike wasn't bad at all. Well worth the hike for the beauty of the waterfall! :) I have pictures I will have to submit for everyone to see why its so worth it! Just take my advice and don't miss this!

“Not Bad but Over-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

It is a nice falls but it is over-rated. We were there during a very wet period but the flow was less than spectacular. The area was too accessible to tourists so you get the inconsiderate that bounce on the suspension foot bridge and climb down around the falls generally being inconsiderate of others wishing to appreciate nature. It is worth a stop while you are in the area but do yourself a favor and take a hike in the beautiful Smoky Mountain National Park to a less visited falls, you won't be disappointed.

“Worth the time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

Mingo Falls is definitely worth the time to visit. Beautiful! A free experience! The big tree that has fallen across the trail was a little difficult to crawl under.
