Beautiful for such a short trail. It's so easy, it might as well be paved. If you have young children or aren't physically able to reach other waterfalls, you'll find this one satisfying. The well-worn path crosses a bridge and follows and meandering creek.

Great trail for a quick walk with the kids right outside Gatlinburg. Sidewalk the whole way, accessible for strollers or wheelchairs. Some interpretive signs along the walk.

This is a short, enjoyable trail not far from the sugarlands welcone center. It is a very nice blacktop trail which provides access for wheelchairs and the disabled. I would urge anyone who is not able to take the more demanding trails of the GSMNP give this a try.

Great for kids. We did this with our three under the age of 6 at the time plus our friends with three kids the same age. It's a nice intro for young kids. Flat & shaded the entire way & lots to look at.

The short trail right outside the Sugarland visitor center, nice when you have a few minutes to kill while waiting on friends/family inside the visitor center.
