Unfortunately there was fog once we arrived at the top. We will have to come back and do again. The ascent to Rocky Top after reaching the App Trail was extremely challenging. It took us about 7 hours round trip.

Made this hike today. Nice easy climb up to the farm buildings. Trail is somewhat rough due to rocks and tree roots. Good shoes and caution will pay big dividends here. The trail was not busy. We were here at the end of October. The views of the creek from the trail are good. Plenty of falling water and boulders. The sound of the flowwing water is very peacful. The foot bridge over the creek is exciting. It is approx 40 feet long. Very solid. THe falls are quiet, not as spectacular as some but very nice in their own right.

I used the iOS app for the first time to track this trail and got some unusual results. According to the track both the browser version and the iOS app listed the distance we traveled as 5,881.06 miles. The map actually showed us ending up off the coast of Western Africa. According to the iOS app the total time traveled was 392,850:40, while the browser version of the track lists the time as 18:43:04, with a moving time of 2:00:05. The browser version also listed an average speed of 2,938.49 mph, while the iOS app listed no average speed, but both listed a maximum speed of 4.5 mph. In reality, it was about a 5 mile round-trip that took about 3 hours. Can anyone advise as to what happened with the tracking feature to result in such outrageous results and discrepancies?

Hiked this trail today and it was nice and quiet. Trail was overgrown in parts and rather flat until the last section. Trail is also longer that 4.2 miles according to my gps. Ill be coming back with my family some weekend.

Late October was a great time to go. The hardest part is crossing the creek 4 times.

We did this in the afternoon, after doing Laurel Falls in the morning. This was more technical, and the uphills were more strenuous. But again, the waterfall views at the end are definitely worth the effort.

This was a great hike! Not too technical, pretty views along the way, and an awesome waterfall as your payoff at the end.
