    Great hike!

    It’s a short hike up to the falls, overall a great place to take your pup on an adventure

    Great Hike!

    this was a nice and easy hike for our big doggo and the trail even had dog water bowls at the beginning of the trails!

    Beautiful falls but crowded and not great for senior dogs

    This used to be a hidden treasure, but is now crowded even on a weekday. Not a great choice for senior dogs or dogs in a stroller as the path is very steep and narrow. It is also now $5 a person instead of car.

    fun way to spend an hour with your dogs

    $5/person entry and moderate but short hike. My dogs loved smelling and seeing everything. Very pretty patio-style viewing location of the falls- no places to swim or touch the water- lots of signs saying not to leave the paved path

    the walk is less than a half a mile, but it is very steep. my 3 goldens had no problem . there are lots of stops on the way to rest and take photos. there is a $5 entry per person but the views are well worth it !

    Hiked in from Unicoi SP

    Dog enjoyed the hike in from the state park. Saw several other dogs from the falls to the parking lot as well.

    This was an absolutely gorgeous waterfall. We read online that it was a paved trail so we were thinking it would be easy, we were wrong. It has a steep incline all the way up and I ended up having to carry my 12 pound dog up because it was too steep for her. Once you get to the top the views are gorgeous and well worth the trek. Wear comfortable shoes and bring lots of water for the pups but definitely a must do.
