Fighting Creek Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Fighting Creek Nature Trail provides a good introduction to the Smokies, especially for families and those who don’t care to tackle the tough hikes. It’s short, easy, crosses over streams, and features a cabin. A short side trip takes you to scenic Cataract Falls. Pick up the self-guiding leaflet at the trailhead and read about the way of life that existed here before the park was established. As with most of the self-guiding nature trails in the park, there’s little danger of not finding your way along Fighting Creek Nature Trail."
