Mingo Falls, Cherokee Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very close to Cherokee Indian museum, the last leg of the falls is small 0.5 mile hike. Hike starts next to the river where you can see many camper trailers and people enjoying fishing. For a proper view, there is a small bridge in front of falls. Lovely place.

  • We went to the Smokie Mountain National Park for a long weekend in the beginning of October and planned our hiking trails around waterfalls. This was by far my favorite one to see. The hike there is short, but you go uphill on wide wooden stairs. You will find funny graffiti written on the stairs, which helped make the hike up them more entertaining. The hike there is entirely shaded by trees. We went there around 9 AM on a Saturday and we had the whole waterfall to ourselves for at least 30 minutes. Because the waterfall wasn't flowing with a lot of water, we were able to climb on rocks and fallen logs to get closer to the waterfall.

  • Beautiful hike to the falls! If your feeling adventurous there’s a rough rocky trail that you can climb to the top and look down with another trail that leads to two more sets of falls. Absolutely stunning

  • Beautiful! But there are lots of steps up so keep that in mind before u go.

  • Cool placed to visit but you must be able to do a lot of walking up some steps
