  • This hike is more strenuous than advertised! You go down hill for a good bit to reach the waterfall, and of course if you go down you must go up. We did check out the cemetery on the way which I recom...  more »
  • This hike had a very cool waterfall! You could even climb up and stand by the waterfall. It is 3 miles and took our family about 3 hours to finish it. The trail description said easy, but it was fairl...  more »

  • Parking is very bad. There are two trails that lead to the falls. You have to watch for signs really closely, because Google navigation will overshoot you about half mile past second starting point. Second trail is about 3 miles long round trip. It somewhat challenging for a first time hiker like me the sight of the falls makes it all worth it though.
  • When I was looking up waterfall trails to hike, I wanted easy to moderate. Nothing too risky and steep. Well, Google said this was an easy trek. Yeah, maybe to those that enter marathons yearly or rock climb, but I'm just the average person. It's downhill mostly all the way to it and a steep return back. For those that are not in good shape, this isn't the best trail to start with. Grotto Falls was easy.
  • My wife and I hate this Trail to the falls on our recent vacation to the Smokies. This was our favorite trail that we hiked and it was beautiful because there was a lot less people on it and the scenery was awesome. The terrain gets a little steep when you get down towards the falls and it's all downhill to the falls so you have to call back up hill to get back. But it's well worth it. There is a trail along the way that goes up to an old Cemetery from the early nineteen hundreds that is beautiful too but again it's all uphill to get there we were glad we stopped though.
  • Great hike! Took our group of 9 (4 under 5) around 4 hours.
  • Pretty secluded, I didn't see anyone else the entire time and it's easy to get to, BUT the hike back out can be pretty steep. Parking is also difficult if you choose a popular day for this hike. With that said, these are some nice falls. Not huge or spectacular, but very nice.
