We visited this cabin but there is nothing special about it. We started to walk the nature trail but found it a bit boring so we returned to car and continue driving on Roaring Fork

Today we hiked the Noah Bud Ogle Nature Trail and it was very pretty. The trail was very rocky so I recommend closed toed shoes. There is a lot to visit on the trail and pretty views. We would go back again!

We walked the nature trail behind the visitor center after the cataract falls. About a mile to also visit the cabin. It was so rainy the day we went.

We traveled to The Great Smoky Mountains in late October. We only traveled on the Cherokee Orchard Road but the Roaring Fork Motor Trail was closed because of ice. We explored the Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and barn after a light snowfall. Beautiful, quiet location.

We have driven by this place many times and never took the time to stop. Glad we took the time on this visit. It never hurts to see how our ancestors lived in such harsh conditins and survived. The Ogle name is very prominent in...More

An easy now hike from the parking lot to the homestead and then a short walk to the mill. The house and grounds are accessible and a stark reminder that the goal of the Ogle's was survival, not comfort.

I would say about 30 minutes unless you see the momma bear & her cubs because they are fun and awesome to watch. I won't do any trails when I start having mobility issues due to the tree roots and rocks that are always there. More
