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.

This was one of the highlights of our visit to the park! The buildings were very interesting and the trail was very nice. The brochure also offered lots of interesting back story about the Ogle family’s life on this farm. It was particularly cool to...More

Roaring Fork Nature Trail was closed due to ice, so we stopped here. We are so glad that we did. We enjoyed the cabins, but the true gem to us was the hiking trail down to LeConte Creek. Absolutely stunning! It is a one mile...More

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.

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.

We love driving the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. They were right in the midst of the fires and I am surprised and pleased that the Bud Ogle cabin wasn't burned although evidence of burn all around. The nature trail behind the cabin is where we...More

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
