Really enjoyed this trail! Moderate elevation changes and great view from the top!

Really pretty trail. The autumn leaves truly made this hike seem yellow. A few easy stream crossings, I was glad to have a hiking pole though. The waterfall at the end is beautiful. About a 200 foot elevation gain on the way back from the falls. The hike from the falls back to the car took us 35 minutes.

Nice hike and summit view close to Atlanta.

one of my favorite hikes in atlanta. so many trails so you never do the same hike twice. the creek is pretty and good for dogs. parking is limited.

Good trail. Nothing difficult in regards to terrain changes. Nice view at the top. Excellent fall colors for mid November.

Unfortunately when we arrived there, we found NO DOGS ALLOWED!!

Beautiful view, but no dogs allowed!!

Top view very nice , great Trail .

super fun!

Parking fills up fast.
Beautiful trail

Not too long, not too short to Yellow Branch Falls with a few creek crossings. Easy hike on the way to the falls, and easy/moderate on way back (due to elevation gain from climbing back out of the valley). There are flats along the way to recover. I hiked it on a cooler/dry day with my 22 month old son strapped to me in our Osprey carrier and there were a few ares where I had some slightly elevated breathing and some burning quads, but not too bad. Pack a lunch because there is ample space near the falls to relax, enjoy the view, and refuel. I also passed about 5 other hiking groups along the way (on a Wednesday afternoon) so it does see some traffic. The trails is also well maintained.

Easy trail for all skill levels. Quiet and not crowded. Beautiful view at the top

Great hike with well marked trail. Waterfall is beautiful.

Fantastic hike to a beautiful waterfall! Not too difficult 1.5 mile one way. Creek crossings, wild flowers. Will be gorgeous in peak fall color season with all the hardwoods!

Nice hike - would not considerate this moderate - more like easy. 9 year son did this with no issue. View from the top is nice. Busy trails on a Sunday morning but not overcrowded.

Short, easy hike. Beautiful waterfall! It was a lot bigger than I imagined. You can enjoy the view from the bottom or climb to the top! Little pockets off the trail lead to creeks and smaller falls. Perfect place for a proposal!

Easy hike with a beautiful view.

Short easy hike, pretty waterfall. The hike is good for all ages so we tend to take out of town guests here for an easy hike to see the falls

Great ride. It’s a good work out

The waterfall is worth it!!

Great hike a couple weeks ago, not too crowded due to the potential hurricane, trail was well maintained. One group of hikers on the trail did report seeing a mother bear and two cubs though, bring your bear spray with you.

Humbling. Beautiful. Peaceful.

Really peaceful and safe!
I did the full hike and wouldn’t call it “moderate”...I’m used to hiking and this trail kicked my butt. I also had quite a few slips (and one big fall) on the crumbling rock and saw other hikers struggling to keep their footing too. I can’t imagine kiddos being able to do it, but maybe if you take your time ;)
Overall, a good, challenging hike—but a little dangerous when it gets steep.
