I was aware of the falls, gnomes, and the seven states overlook, but I had no idea about the rest! I was lucky to visit on a particularly beautiful day. The trails were very nice, but it did get a bit tight in some spots....More

Pros: clear signs all the way from Chattanooga, ample parking, Starbucks outside of entrance!, tranquil meditation music playing throughout the trails set the mood. Color-coded trails clearly marked. Clean and well kept. Beautiful flora with descriptive markers. Nod towards the area’s history. Decent priced souvenirs....More

Fun amazing visit. But if you’re a big person ask for alternative routes because you just might not fit through the standard path.

If I would have walked any slower, I would have been standing still. And still only took be 40 minutes to walk through the place. For $25, it is nothing but a tourist trap. Go pullover somewhere safe and see the view. Do not waste...More

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
