I wouldn't necessarily call this easy. It does have some moderate ups and downs, not horrible, but not entirely easy, either. You will not be alone on this trail. My wife and I hiked this trail on a 50-something degree Saturday between Christmas and New Year's and there were a lot of other people on the trail. It is a well-kept trail though and the payoff at the falls is worth the hike. When we went, the pool at the base of the falls was swollen from a rainy winter, so it was difficult to get very close to the falls, but the view was still good. Be warned, the only way to get to this trail is by way of Cade's Cove Loop Road. This is a 9 mile road that took us a total of a little over two hours to drive do to the stop and go traffic.★ ★ ★ ★
