  • An educational, quick stop. Good parking. Very neat place.
  • Great place to see. We bought some cornmeal. Short hike. Great place to take pictures.
  • This operational grist mill is a staple of the Great Smoky Mountains. If you go during summer time, they open up the mill and even get it running! The path up-stream of the mill is beautiful, don't miss it!
  • Beautiful and informative. Nice gentleman working inside tell you all about the place and also offers cornmeal for purchase.
  • It's a beautiful trail and mill. Being constructed in 1886, it is still in great condition.
