Perfect easy trail
2021年9月
Enjoyed the visit here. Thankfully a friend told us to park at the schoolhouse and not at the main road pull off as the walk would be quite long. If you are driving a low riding car you might want to forego driving on the pot hole dirt road (just saying). Also note the dirt road to schoolhouse is one-way and we ended up backing up to let several other cars come through. If you are not good at driving backwards I would let someone else take the wheel. The story of the Walker sisters is amazing. The trail to the main cabin is 1.1 miles, but felt longer. At least it was an easy hike.

Easy hike, great history
2021年6月 • 好友
An easy hike to do with kids. Be sure to stop by the Little Greenbrier School house on your way to the cabin. Lots of history here and at the sisters’ cabin. So neat to see where they lived.

Nice Hike
2021年4月 • 夫妻情侣
This is a great hike. Not to hard and well worth the time. My wife had her hip replaced two months ago and made it with no problem, she couldn’t have made it half way before surgery though.

Nature Trail Hike
2020年10月
The hike was fairly simple and didn’t take long depending on how fast you walk and how much time you spend looking around. From the Little Greenbriar School parking lot it is 1.1 miles and somewhat paved. If you park in the Metcalf Bottom parking lot, it is an additional 0.6 miles to the cabin. I wish they had a little sign or some thing telling you the history of the Walker Sisters Place because it is interesting, but they didn’t have any sort of markers. I highly suggest that if you are able, you park in the Metcalf Bottom parking lot and walk the 1.7 miles. You will have a much easier time getting in and out of the parking lot. The winding road to the Little Greenbriar School parking lot is an extremely narrow path to the point that some spots are not passable and cars were driving down backwards just to get out of the way. We were folding in car mirrors and driving half off the road just to go around people. We saw a black bear on our way out which jammed up the roads even further because no one was moving in the other direction. Overall, easy nature hike and worth seeing the cabin. In total we spent road trip about an hour not including the time we were stuck on the road.

Family hike with elementary age children and baby
2020年10月 • 家庭
This fairly short hike was an educational experience for all of us and a good history lesson for the children who are homeschooled. The baby was in a wrap and the Mom didn’t complain about the walking conditions. The hike was just over a mile with a slight incline. A one room school house and old cemetery were near the trailhead and a well maintained cabin and spring house at the end. The cabin was open for viewing and walking through and included several rooms and a loft. The grounds were very natural with a few wildflowers in bloom in early September.

The Brave Walker Sisters Cabin
2020年9月 • 夫妻情侣
The Walker Sisters cabin, built in the 1840's by their grandfather, stands to show the love of the land and the history of the family. The sisters maintained the cabin and that way of life until the last sister died in the late 1960's.

You can access the trail from the Greenbriar School. The trail to the Walker Sisters cabin is about 1.1 miles from the school, being that of a slight incline heading up to the cabin and a bit rocky in spots.

With the creation of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, hundreds of families were asked to move out of their mountain homes. Some went willingly, and others fought against it, but most families moved immediately. A select few, including the six unmarried Walker sisters, received a special lifetime lease—a chance to live out the rest of their lives in the log cabin they were raised in, even after the creation of a national park. Their incredible story is one of strength, hard work, and a love for the land of the Smokies.

To have the chance to visit and tour the structure and the property and imagine what life was like back in the late 1800's is just historic.

Worth the hike up to the homestead from the Greenbriar School.

Historic cabin worth a visit
2020年8月
Historic cabin at the end of a beautiful hike. Trailhead is a bit confusing to find, just across the bridge from the Metcalf picnic area. Signage isn't very good but the hike is wonderful.

Quiet Calm Hike
2019年8月
This is a very off the beaten path hike, we encountered noone on the way up or back. My suggestion is to park at Metcalf Bottoms and hike the 3 or so miles to the cabin. They have a very interesting story, be sure to read about them before you hike. The cabin is a place of the past, sit and recollect your thoughts, enjoy the sound of nature and nothing else.

Very interesting hike/walk
2018年11月 • 好友
You can walk from the Metcalf Bottoms road or drive to the schoolhouse n part there. It’s less than a mile up and very clear so it’s doable for most people. Just remember the road to the schoolhouse is narrow and not paved.

Neat fairly short hike
2018年6月 • 独自旅游
The Walker Sisters were some of the last residents in the area, even decades after the founding of the National Park. This hike starts at the Little Greenbrier Schoolhouse. I recommend parking at Metcalf Bottoms and walking the .6 mile trail instead parking at the Schoolhouse, the road is a little crazy with two way traffic. The hike is fairly flat to the homestead. No crazy views or water, but it is quiet and peaceful. About a 3,25 mile roundtrip hike from Metcalf Bottoms to there and back. There are other cabins and structures either easier to see or equally impressive in other places in the park, but this is more interesting after knowing the history of the residents.
