Indian Flats Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The easy walk along Lynn Camp Prong is the quintessential Smokies stream hike. Many photographs taken along this stream show up on postcards or prints sold in area stores. In spring the trail sides explode with trilliums, dwarf irises, jacks-in-the pulpit, violets, anemones, and seemingly countless other wildflowers.

In October the autumn foliage rivals any in the park. With the cascading Lynn Camp Prong as your escort and a scenic waterfall as your destination, this hike is a great one any time of year, not just in spring and fall."

This is an absolutely georgeous hike! The trees and the river are some of the most beautiful in the smokeies. However, there is a lot of horse pies on the trail and the trail is usually packed with people and horses. Today it was not so it was much better. The hike is not strenuous at all, it is a gentle grade up a very wide trail, until you turn off to go to the falls. The falls are very nice, not spectacular but nice. The guide book says that the upper falls is the only one that is easily accessable, but we reached the other three without much difficulty at all. I would recommend this trail to anyone who wants to take a nice semi-long stroll. The Falls are a nice place to have a picnic. Trail is best in the fall when the leaves are changing and in the spring when the dogwoods bloom.
