This is an underwhelming but sweet little waterfalls that is accessed from right behind the visitor center. Although the falls is not too much, the easy trail is cool in the summer heat and very attractive. Overall well worth the 30 minute round trip walk.

We went for a Sunday drive and ended up here. Several families were on the trail — even ones with baby strollers. The park made it very pleasant in spite of high heat and temperatures otherwise.

We went to Gatlinburg on a waterfall quest! One of the workers at Sugarland Visitors Center suggest Cataract Falls. It was an easy 0.5 mile hike located behind the visitor center. We were not disappointed. It was quite beautiful!

The walk to this waterfall is very easy. There and back took us about 20 mins. Just a nice, quiet hike. The waterfall is beautiful.

Very pretty. Ten minutes from parking, no incline. See it! Ample parking. Nice little water fall. Great little walk for elderly or small children!

Its probably 30 minutes for an adult by themselves. With kids it was closer to 45 or more. There could be lots of stops to look at flowers and the creek.
