    Good trail very well maintained and marked with signage and trail markers.

    Failry easy as far as not a lot of inclines but at a total of 16 miles round trip I would not say it is "easy'.

    Some nice overlooks as well as Savage falls at the beginning 2 miles or so.This is also a great place to cool off on the return.

    I would recommend this hike and it is not as difficult as Collins Gulf that isd near this trail.

    One more trail down in my quest to do all the trails in the savage gulf/south cumberland recreation area.

    This trail is fairly nice but great views into the gulf are few and far between (at least in summer with full foliage) compared to Big Creek Rim.
