Very nice trail and one of the more popular ones in the park. I want to try to do one of the multi trail loops to the falls sometime this summer.

Good hike, to bad we went on the one of the hottest days of the year. Other than that it was worth the trip to see the falls.

Beautiful! We went on April 3rd before sunset, and it was very peaceful. It is rocky, but manageable elevation. Wear comfortable shoes, and bring water.

Great hike but be ready for some substantial elevation gain!
This is a really great hike but it will challenge the average day hiker. 5.5 miles gaining over 500 ft/mile in elevation will test your level of fitness (assuming you keep a reasonable pace).
Some excellent old growth forests along the way....not many lookout points on the way up unfortunately. A beautiful mountain stream which you cross twice on well done foot bridge logs. On my hike, the trail was in reasonable condition, some areas of washing and erosion but very manageable. No climing of any kind required. On the accent, the last half mile is tough, prob about a 25-30 degree incline and somewhat rocky....but you are rewarded at the top with a magnificent view of the Smoky and Rich Mountain range from Gregory Bald...and in June..the wild azaieas are unbelieveable. It looks like an old home place that has been abandoned.
Start this hike as early as you can so that you can spend plenty of time up on the bald. These oddites (balds) in this part of the world are truly something to see and experience.
Happy Hiking!!
