This is a 2.5 mile hike one-way, but give yourself some time. Three hours minimum for in/out and be sure to have rugged shoes and water. We saw a number of people just dressed for swimming, but I wouldn’t want to deal with the blisters...More

About 6 mile hike round trip. Rough terrain. Wear good shoes and bring plenty of water. Cool off in the water prior to coming back.

Our kids are 9yrs and 6 years and use to hiking. I would not attempt it with smaller children. Steep in places. It’s 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Make sure to bring plenty of water!!

Great hike for everyone. It’s a mix of up hill and down hill to get to the falls. There are plenty of spots along the way to see the water and cool off a bit. I got to the falls around 2:15 and it was...More

Hiked this 5 mile round trip trail with my 6 and 7 year olds. There are some steep inclines, but they are spread out which is nice. A few spots to take a break and let the kids splash in the water, and even one...More

Great hike located in the middle of Cades Cove loop. A pretty good hike with hills. Falls are incredible. Do not try to swim at the falls. People drown there every year. Just go for the beautiful scenery.

I liked this hike. It’s about 5 miles round trip and, although there are some inclines, the trail is not too hard. The family we were with had small children and they made it just fine. The scenery is breathtaking, and the falls are beautiful....More

Loved this trail. Its a beautiful hike with some elevarions of moderate difficulty. The drive to the loop was great. Traffic at cades cove can be a headache so go as early as possible. Take some water with you. Waterfall was nice and felt fresh....More

I have done a lot of hiking and visited many places that took my breath away. This is an easy hike. Maybe moderate for those who are not active much. The falls is nice with heavy stream. Overall, I'm kind of neutral with this place.
