A very enjoyable and easy hike. My adult son and I spent a couple of hours enjoying the pretty waterfall as well as the numerous species of wildflowers (including jack-in-the-pulpit and Vasey's Trillium). It's half a mile from the Parksville Lake Campground, just off U.S. 64 near Benton, TN, and the parking area also serves the Clemmer Trail. Highly recommended!

A wonderful easy hike to a sweet little waterfall. My son (adult) and I did this one in a couple of hours, stopping often to photograph the many varieties of wildflowers, including jack-in-the-pulpit, Vasey's Trillium, and pink lady slipper. This is a half-mile from the Parksville Campground of the Cherokee National Forest; the same parking area also serves the Clemmer Trail. Excellent hike!

My son (adult) and I camped at Parksville CG, and this hike was one we chose to do. We went early on Friday morning, and it was a great experience. This is one of the prettier waterfalls (cascades, to be exact) I've seen, and I've seen several. Good water flow for early May. We had about 30 minutes at the base of the falls to ourselves to take photos. The trail was nice, too; we saw some wonderful wildflowers: flame azaleas were in bloom, mountain laurel was just opening up; saw a couple of nice jack-in-the-pulpits and a couple of pink lady slippers. A wonderful hike!

My son (adult) and I hiked about 2 miles of this trail; we were breaking camp around noon, and wanted to get in a nice hike before leaving. An easy trail to follow; the first 1/3 mile or so is a little steep, but the grade falls back after that to an easy stroll. Pleasant scenery along the way, but we were thrilled to find a couple of pink lady slippers beside the trail; one a near-perfect specimen. We met a couple of hikers on our way back, and about four different mountain bikers. For a Saturday morning in early May, we were glad to have the trail to ourselves.

Benton Falls is a beautiful Nature Hike to the Falls. The park Chilhowee has absolutely some of the most beautiful views I have seen.

This trail is a nature walk. It is an easy and pleasant walk EXCEPT it is crowded and apparently has its share of irresponsible people. There was litter at the base of the waterfall and along the trail. It smells bad in several places. People do not keep their dogs leashed (and trust me,as a veterinarian, I am an animal lover) or clean up after them. There was a pair of dirty underwear dumped on the side of the path. I won't ever go back to this site. However, if you need a quick nature fix and you can tolerate smells and litter, the waterfall itself is lovely.
