  • This was an easy hike right behind the Sugarlands welcome center. It’s quiet in the woods and has a smooth path. It’s short yet relaxing. It also attaches to the nature trail.  more »
  • We stopped off at the visitor center and the guide recommended this fall since we had young children. It was perfect. Easy trail and beautiful scenery.  more »

  • Very clean park. Walk to the falls is dirt/mud so where boots it you have them. Wonderful photo opportunity at the base of the falls. Other trails nearby were a mixture of dirty and man made rock paths. Fun day!
  • The hike to these falls are an easy, short walk from the visitor center. The trail is marked really well. It would be a good trail to take kids on.
