    Great hike with great guide. Guide Eric was terrific. He informed us of the history of the smoky mountains as well as many of the different plants and wildlife

    We originally had this hike scheduled for the beginning of our trip yet we followed the google link in the reservation which was wrong and then no service in the woods so couldnt find the meeting spot. Woukd recommend taking that link out. We ended up hiking on our own a few days but Walk in the Woods was able to reschedule us as our last activity. Due to rattlesnake dens we had to take a different trail. John, our guide, was knowledgeable and pleasant. The trail was moderate and a few of the elderly people in our group turned around pretty quickly. Need to be able to walk on steep uneven surfaces and walk across logs or rocks in a stream. Was hoping to see higher waterfalls but what we saw was cool. Would recommend for those that don't want to do solo hikes and want to learn more about plants, animals and tge park.

    Pretty good. Was hoping for larger waterfalls to be honest. Our guide was knowledgeable.

    Our guide, Debbie, met us and assured us the hike was still on even though it was a little rainy. It wasn't raining hard enough to deter us. My husband and I are glad we didn't back out. Debbie took us and another couple through the beautiful forest along the creek and told us about the flora and fauna and history of the region. We did some rock hopping and saw the promised waterfalls which were flowing due to the recent rains. The only letdown is that I expected to see bigger falls.

    Our tour guide was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. The hike itself was fairly easy, just a few difficult areas but we all did great. Jennifer gave us walking sticks to use and that was really helpful. She answered all our questions and gave us a lot of nature fun facts along the way. Recommend!

    This was an excellent tour. Jamie was extremely knowledgeable and you could tell she loved doing this tour. We had children with the group and she was very good with them. This was definitely not a strenuous trip and we were able to see a few small waterfalls. We spent a lot of time talking about plants and you will learn a lot about the forest. The hike was really beautiful. It's very slow pace so don't expect to be hiking the whole time. I would have liked to keep moving and hiked for a greater distance, but the tour was everything it was advertised for. Nice way to spend 3 hours.

    This was an amazing walk in the woods with a knowledgeable guide who took the time to answer questions and offer insight in to the park. I would highly recommend this tour, wear long pants though - a lot of Poison Ivy!

  • 23-Aug-2017

    Hike is fine for all levels of fitness. The hike was not on one of the established paths, which was great because you had the trail all to yourself, but there was a lot of poison ivy on and around the trail. I recommend you wear pants rather than shorts.
