    Excellent view from each of the overlooks. Be sure that you hit both overlooks at the end at Erwin's View. There were many people on this hike on a wonderful November morning. Dog and kid friendly.

    Wonderful 360 views. Worth the very rocky trails when you reach the tops

    This is a great trail for families and those who need an easy hike. Multiple smaller waterfall views if you take all the trails. Rated 4 stars because I prefer a more secluded, off the beaten path type hike.

    This is primarily a road walk section of the MTS. Not really recommended unless you are thru-hiking or section hiking the entire trail. The dirt roads on the Qualla Boundary are pleasant, but the Parkway has heavy traffic, limited shoulders, and blind curves.

    The 1st mile and a half down to the old Hendersonville reservoir is just a gravel road. It is mostly shady but still gravel and hilly. After you cross the bridge at the reservoir (see photo) onto the big creek trail you walk along big creek on a real forest trail that is nice and level and very shady.

    This is a great hike. Very steep in some places, but stairs help. Great views on top and most of the trail is in shade.

    Grassy Gap is a wide trail, but several wet creek crossings. Bluff Ridge is a steep climb but beautiful views.

    Second time doing this hike. You can go counter clockwise and have the views towards the end of the hike or go clockwise and get to Slate Rock near the beginning. We went counter clockwise both times. That direction provides a cardio climb over 600ft then you level off towards the lookout. Slate Rock views are awesome. Many people hike to Slate Rock clockwise and return same way. Depends on your fitness level. Parking area is about 6.6 miles on right from where the gravel forest road begins.

    Beautiful hike with lots of laurel and rhododendron. Distance might be an issue for some hikers, but I would in no way rate this as difficult. Relatively little elevation change.

    We took the shuttle to the top so we mostly only had to hike down. It was beautiful but the rock steps can be difficult to maneuver around. Not recommended for anyone with knee issues.

    Super short and easy trail but beautiful waterfall and little hidden gem. It was quiet and secluded. Very different form the main hikes at Linville Falls.

    A nice, short hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The entire way is on a gravel carriage road that is closed to vehicles. The woods have grown up around the summit tower, but there are still distant views over the treetops. The trail passes through large open fields which reminded me of England. Rated three stars because of crowds.

    Hiked on 10-7-18. Was hoping for more fall color but it is a little later this year. Hiked this same hike a few years back on first Friday of October and colors were at peak. Easy hike. Mostly flat. Very muddy after any rain at all. A lot of secondary trails have been made by hikers to go around the bigger mud holes. Falls had much less water on this trip compared to a few years back. Can get crowded on weekends. I hiked out to falls about 4:30 PM and passed more people than I could even count who were returning from the falls. When I arrived there were only two couples at the base and a few people above the falls. Within 10 minutes they were all gone and I had it to myself.
