Great trail! Tons of spots for my dog to get in the water! Highly trafficked causing some difficulty on the narrow parts of the trail

I wouldn't call this trail moderate, very easy. Might be just a tad challenging at the end with the rocks.

absolutely beautiful and evergreen. not too strenuous. 3 different sections of the waterfall, and there are some places which are great to get in the water.

This is one of my favorite hikes in Georgia! There is so much scenery throughout the whole entire hike. Many places to stop and take a dip in the river. The trail itself is easy with a little steep part at the end to the cliffs. The cliffs are beautiful, the pictures don't show the absolute beauty of this place.

Great trail. Very slippery with the mud and rocks. A couple of steep inclines on the way up. Definitely wear good hiking shoes and you might want to use walking stick. People sometimes leave them at the start of the trail. Good hike with the dogs. Did it at a brisk pace with only a few stops in about 2 hours. Beautiful falls. We saw some people camping there too!

Easy hike back to the falls about 2.5 miles in. Can be a bit muddy so bring good hiking shoes. The main falls are about 50 feet or so high and wedged between two massive rock faces. If you are feeling adventurous you could rock scramble and use the roots to climb the right side up to the top of the falls. There is another water fall up top behind the big one. BE CAREFUL up there. Very steep, loose ground and a long way down.
