Paw Paw Professional Review and Guide
"This loop combines views with a walk through woods of laurel, rhododendron, hemlock, and mixed hardwoods. A side trail leads to an overlook that offers a distant view of Fall Creek Falls."
--Russ Manning, 40 Hikes In Tennessee's South Cumberland (The Mountaineers Books).
This is a very easy loop trail. It was great to see the fall colors in the gorge. The overlooks were hit and miss some of them were overgrown with not much of a view. The back side of the loop is right next to the main road going through the park so it was noisy at times. We did see several deer while we were walking through this section.
