Trail is pretty well maintained especially for the off season. Muddy in spots with a few easily avoided trees over the trail. Definitely earns its moderate rating given occasionally muddy conditions and a not insignificant elevation gain, but it was a fun, diverse afternoon hike.

Nice trail with lots of wonderful vistas, but a lot of Pines down along the west edge. Very rocky run at times. Be ready to do a little climbing over and around fell trees. Hate to say it, but the pines real need cleared away and this would be a 5 star. I’d do it again. Also, it’s closer to 7.3. Moderate is accurate.

Unbelievable strenuous hike. Our mileage was closer to 9 miles. In and out trail, waterfalls are beautiful. Hike out is tough, all uphill. Needed to be in better shape!

Great loop. Take a Lifestraw and use this app if your confused at some of the creek crossings. I ran the route in around 5 hours.

There were some fallen trees on the Pinhoti side that were a little tough to navigate, but other than that, beautiful trail for a training run.

My siblings and I hiked this trail on a Sunday afternoon. There were a lot of downed trees from yesterday's storm, but it was still worth it. We hiked to McDill Point. If you hike the Cave Creek Loop be sure to go to McDill Point. We got there at sunset and it as absolutely breathtaking. We spent quite a bit of time at several different lookouts. I wasn't too worried because we had a light. Soon after it got dark my phone was about to die, but I had a spare battery. I thought it was charged, but it wasn't. I didn't record the entire trip because of that. While my brother was downloading the app on his phone, I was using a flashlight to lead the way in the dark. Eventually, the app did get downloaded. At one point we came out on an atv trail. Soon I realized that we weren't on the right trail. I had two choices -- 1: Hike straight through the woods off trail for a half mile. 2: Continue on the atv trail, walk around a half to 3/4 mile to the road and walk maybe a mile or so down the road to my car. We opted to head through the woods using the All Trails app for a gps. There were lots of fallen trees, but we eventually made it. All together, with hiking to McDill Point yet, plus losing the trail in the dark we walked close to 8 miles.

To start off, we weren’t aware that certain trails are closed from December to March, as the park websites are quite vague about which areas are closed off. We asked the person at Cheaha state park for better directions, but the only route she showed us ended up being closed off with a detour in the opposite direction. We ended up having to park at the closed gates of the road that should have taken us to the trailhead. After hiking 1.5 miles down the paved road to the trail’s start, we could only make it about 2 miles into the actual trail before having to turn back due to it being slightly overgrown and the sun beginning to set. We made it to the first set of falls, which are definitely worth seeing. “Moderate” is an accurate description, as the leaves and rocks make it pretty slippery in some parts. Worth seeing, but come prepared with water, shoes with good traction, and patience, especially Dec-March.

1/8/20 - First time to hike this trail and will definitely go back. Simply beautiful! The hike out is tougher than the hike in, but if you are in reasonably decent shape this trail isn’t too strenuous. A little rocky in a couple places. There are even a couple stops with benches to rest on. You cross two bridges on the walking path to the Walls - one very nice engineered bridge and a second log bridge with a hand rail. After crossing the log bridge, you follow upstream to the northwest. Be prepared to step into some shallow water or cross the stream on rocks. We were able to cross without getting wet. The falls were flowing beautifully in early January. Don’t stop until you reach the falls off the cliff. You will love it!

Set out to hike 5 out and 5 back. The 1.5 miles out and return was somewhat unnerving due to someone target shooting, I guess, firing in what sounded like indiscriminate directions. Single shots at times followed by multiple rounds fired. As I walked it sounded like I was drawing closer. He or they were likely in the FS road close to the trail near the 1.5 point oil the trail. I was wearing an orange shirt and hat but not sure it mattered. Otherwise, this looks like a fun trail for hiking and training. I’ll return another day.

Wonderful hike. Went 6 miles out through peaceful silence.

Beautiful hike but had to turn around at creek crossing. 5-6 ft high creek bed wall to scale in order to get to other side with much slippery mud. May be easier when dryer but still don’t see an easy way to cross.

We hike here often! It’s one of our favorite places to come to when the weather is nice. The waterfalls were really flowing today after all of the rain we’ve had!

The scenery is beautiful just about anywhere in here, but the only issues I had were that the trail was difficult to find at first and that the river wasn’t able to be crossed due to it raining so much recently. In other areas, you can cross by wading through, but this particular spot we ended at had too steep of a bank to crawl up. Still a wonderful hike with a reasonable amount of traffic.

Great trail. Difficult to follow at times. Gorgeous waterfalls and Big Tree

Fun walk for family, within thr city. Great quick getaway for a couple of hours outdoors

I read in a hiker's blog to park where the paved turns into a dirt road. That added to the adventure and delayed us. We did find the actual parking spot and trail. Ran out of time for the last tier and large waterfall, but definitely worth the scramble down the mud into the bowl to see the other falls. Well worth a return trip.
