This trail was a lot of fun. Very scenic and our kids enjoyed passing the horseback trail riders occasionally.

Nice, level trail. We will go back & make it a trail run. Stop at Bandy Creek Visitor Station & get directions. Great views especially in the winter. We were instructed to go counter clockwise however, clockwise would have saved best views for last.

It was a very difficult hike. Rocky terrain, straight up mountains. But beautiful scenery. Definitely worth it!! Make sure you don't wear jeans or tennis shoes! BOOTS:)

Abrams Falls Trail

Great hike. The day was perfect for a winter hike. Temps started in the high 20s. The sun was out all day and warmed up to the 40s. The trail was wet and muddy in places due to the rain earlier in the week. It made some of the creek crossing a little more sketchy. Overall, it is a great trail to hike. I have done little bottoms many times. Abrams falls was running hard due to the rain. Overall a great 10.2 out and back.

Honey Creek Loop Trail

This trail is by far the best trail we have been on since our move to TN. It has literally everything: waterfalls, Boulder 'scrambles,' tunnels between rocks, an overlook, rivers, streams, brooks, cascades, caves, and just an all-round beautiful (but difficult) trail. I wouldn't take small children on this trail, and allow around 6 hours if you want to have photo ops, exploration time, and a nice lunch break. Dogs are allowed on leash. Camping is allowed with back country permit. We went in early Feb and there was some ice on the rocks to be careful of- but not too much.
