Worth it. Sketchy parking area. Cool old-timey cabins to see. Huge trees to see.

Great hike! Uphill for 6 miles, and then down hill for 6 miles. At least the middle 4 miles was snow covered, with opportunities for "ankle turning" if you do not pay attention to foot placement. The view at the top was incredible! When you get to the App. Trail portion (take left), that portion you feel like you are at the top but it is still almost 1 hour across to the Fire Tower. We saw no animals at all, not even a squirrel!

Campground was not crowded at all. Maybe only 20% of sites occupied. I'd been worried about finding a spot and was told Cosby is rarely full. We hiked the short 1 mile Nature trail 2 times since wife hurt her foot and couldn't walk up hill. The Nature trail was very good and one of best hikes i've ever found. Walked the road down to highway which was surprising nice, easy, tall trees and along river for quiet a while and few cars. It was 2 1/2 from campground.
Will go here again if we ever come back to SMNP.

Very nice trail. Took Boy Scouts up to the AT, took a picture and kept hiking back around to the Cosby Campground. Good water supplies.

Nice hike, it was foggy all day so no views for me, did locate the plane wreckage from the 1984 crash, not much left anymore.

Started at Cosby Campground, hiked up Low Gap Trailhead to the AT, headed to Mt Cammerer, then down Lower Mt Cammerer trail. It ended up being just over 16 miles. We had a great time!

Not the most exciting trail in the park. I hiked started from Cosby campground up Low Gap to the AT to Mt Cammerer and then back to Cosby on the Lower Mt Cammerer trail. Unless I do this same loop again I will not hike again. Very easy with a few stream crossing offers plenty of drinking water.

One of the most beautiful places in the smokies, however it's also a popular place. 2700 feet elevation change from Cosby Campground and worth every foot.

Great morning hike. The sun had just risen above the east mountainside leaving us with a spectacular sun rays on the water fall. Kids loved playing at base of falls. Perfect way to cool off before hiking back to picnic area. Family friendly hike. Lots of rocks and roots to make it technical. Plenty of incline outbound.
