All reviews the roaring fork motor trail grave stones down hill ups and downs trail starts beautiful waterfall short hike great pictures great hike parking area cemetery trailhead hikers falls spur climb miles
Nice hike away from crowds with nice waterfall at end. A little difficult toward the end going down steep trail. I've hiked for decades with no falls but this downhill got me. I fell once just before the falls from slipping in wet ground in...More
This is a great hike for the family with a lot of different terrain and scenery. There isn’t much parking, you’ll pass the trailhead on a one way road and up the hill about a 1/4 mile is a parking area. The trail is moderate...More
Great hike. Love seeing nature recover from the fire. A few different areas were recovering well. Great views that were not there prior to the fire. Mostly down hill on the way to the falls. Save water for the return trip. Fantastic hike for family...More
We stumbled on this hike and decided to do it. We are so glad we did. I would rate it moderate difficulty due to the steep hills. This is "off the beaten path" which we loved. We were able to enjoy the falls without anyone...More
Beautiful trail off the Roaring Fork Rd. Most people drive by this trail without a second thought and they are really missing out. The trail is maybe a little more strenuous than most guide books claim but still not too rough. Take your time to...More
We hit this trail at about 8:30 am. We were the first people out for the day. The trail goes through a burn area from the fall of 2016. Seeing the 'regrowth ' was very interesting. The last half mile of the trail losses about...More
Much of this trail winds thru hills that were burned in the fire of 2016 making this a beautiful, yet surreal hike. New greenery is pushing its way up thru the ashes and wildlife is returning to the area. Baskins Falls are quite nice though...More
We took our 3 year old on this hike. It is more on the strenuous side with the elevation changes but it was worth it in the end. The last little bit was alittle tricky but nothing too bad. Good waterfall to hike and eat...More
I'll start with the basics.

This hike is more strenuous than advertised! You go down hill for a good bit to reach the waterfall, and of course if you go down you must go up. We did check out the cemetery on the way which I recommend, it is fairly...More

In Gatlinburg turn on airport road at the space needle. Stay straight until you hit the one way roaring 🍴 motor trail, which essentially makes a horseshoe shaped drive. There are two trailheads for the Baskin creek falls... More
In Gatlinburg turn on airport road at the space needle. Stay straight until you hit the one way roaring 🍴 motor trail, which essentially makes a horseshoe shaped drive. There are two trailheads for the Baskin creek falls trail, each approaching the falls from different directions. Either direction is a downhill hike to the falls. Numerous places have free trail maps and this trail should be marked on any of them. Enjoy!
