Ramsey Cascades Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This rewarding hike presents a waterfall and oldgrowth woodlands in a remote area of the park. Start out with a slight upgrade, then climb more steeply through old-growth trees in virgin woods as you near the cascades. The area remains as it has for ages.

This hike is good year-round, but spring affords a plethora of wildflowers. Hikers can swim in summer. Fall has brilliant old-growth forests. In winter, Ramsey Cascades may be frozen, which attracts hikers, too."

"Not only do you get to see a waterfall at trail’s end but also pass through old-growth forest, all draped in national park grandeur.

This Smoky Mountains classic hike travels up Ramsey Prong, delving deep into the back of beyond, winding among mountain streams and towering woods, before finally reaching this 65-foot tiered cataract. Be apprised there is a 2,200-foot elevation gain between the trailhead and Ramsey Cascades."
