Beautiful hike. Rented bikes with my two older sons, rode to the trailhead via the Cades Cove Loop, hiked down to the falls and back out again.

To be safe, this trail should be started no later than 2:00pm during the winter - for beginners, novices, & intermediate level hikers.

Have hiked this trail 3 times. Fall was the best. Go early. First mile of the trail can get crowded with flip-flop hikers. 2nd mike usually thins out.
