Grotto Falls – I share about my experience with this hike and tid-bits about this hike too.
This hike runs behind the 25 foot high waterfall. You can expect to do about 3 miles round trip (2.6 miles) on this hike. It is considered moderate to difficult type of hike. You can expect to take 2-3 hours round trip. But if you take your time and enjoy God’s creation. You can also spend some times at the waterfall and maybe have a picnic or devotion there too.
On this hike, you will also gain 585 Feet in elevation. The highest elevation point is 3,777 Feet along the The Trillium Gap Trail. You will get to cross over several streams too without any bridges too. There are not pets alone on this trail or bikes either.
If you wish you can continue on the Trillium Gap Trail to Mount LeConte.
This is my second hike to Grotto Falls. Both times have been with the youth at Piedmont Baptist Church. The picture was taken on the day of the hike, May 27, 2017.
