Great hike, easy with a “moderate” section or two. Falls all along the creek are gorgeous. The falls at the cliff (especially up inside) are worth the climb.

Trail was easy to find. The porta potty had a sign on it that said due to lack of donation they are unable to keep up with the maintenance. Started walking the trail, and it was very pleasant, but NOT clearly marked. There are no trees marked in between trail markers and it is very easy to end up off course. We ended up miles off the loop turning a 9 mile loop into a 13.5 mile hike before we finally called forestry because we were running out of light.

vista maravillosa, el lugar muy bonito...

Pretty steep but worth it

I wouldn't rate it as hard unless you're not in fair shape. The cliff at the top is worth the effort.

Beautiful views from the top!

It’s not just about the falls. My wife and I have taken this hike numerous times. We bring water and snacks and just enjoy everything this location has to offer. The river alone is enchanting. The trees are amazing. We love this hike.

Great trail and BEAUTIFUL water falls. Will definitely visit again.

We hiked this trail earlier today. there were quite a few groups of people but not crowded. I took my six year old and only saw one other group with children. mine was fine, he tripped a couple of times on the rocks. This is a hard trail, but very rewarding! You are climbing over rocks and boulders for a bit of the trail. I recommend going when there are clear skies, there was quite a bit of fog and at the top there were no good views because of that. There was a valley close to the top that we enjoyed quite a bit though!

I know why its #1 in the area, loved it! It has multiple waterfalls along the way.At the end, Like others have said you have to climb to the very top to see all the falls in between the rocks. The climb looks intimidating but its really not that bad. Just do it, you'll be glad you did.

Cold and windy, hard freeze this morning 29 degrees and fog on the summit.

The trail isn't marked well (we got lost a couple of times) but other than that, it was a great vigorous hike!

Excellent hike and stunning views from the top of Blood Mountain. It was pretty crowded on a late morning weekday during Spring Break. But since we continued the loop to continue to the Freeman Trail, it was less crowded coming down the mountain than if we had backtracked back down like every other group was doing. Ran into a few AT through hikers. The last 2 miles is the Freeman Trail and we only saw one other person on it. We did this with kids (11 and 4) so it took almost double the time as what most people take for the loop because of many extended breaks to rest the little one's legs. But we planned for it to be an all day thing so it was a great adventure for them. I wouldn't recommend the full 6 mile loop for most people with small children unless you know your child can handle it. The last 2 miles on the Freeman Trail can be daunting for them since it is a lot of boulders and rocks after being tired out by the summit climb.

I did this trail last summer and it was super hot which made it harder but overall it was an amazing trail. The reward at the top was well worth it.

Great trail and beautiful waterfalls! We went later in the afternoon on a weekday during Spring break which was less crowded. We passed a lot of people making their way back, but we had the Falls to ourselves when we got there. We took our 11 and 4 yr old and they had no problem.

I love this trail! I camp and home here every year!

The fact that it was rated HARD intimidated me. Don't let it do the same to you. Go at your own pace and make your way to the top to enjoy the beautiful view!

Awesome trek, be sure to see the hidden waterfalls inside the crack in the cliff!!!

Super nice

This was my first ever “real” hiking experience. I loved it!! I cannot wait to do more. This is one place I know I will keep coming back to, over and over again.

Great hike but the trail isn’t clearly marked in some parts!

Long drive for a short hike. HOWEVER- this is a beautiful area, offers a nice short hike for kiddos and camping along the way.

7 days of hard hiking, but totally Awesome. We backpacked to Albert Mountain

Pretty good but of traffic, but the falls are more than worth it. Would recommend.

Beautiful falls all along the trail. The traffic got a little heavy on our way out. If you want to see the falls at the end of the trail you’ll have to climb rocks to see it. Not for kids or people with knee problems. My mom was somewhat disappointed because she couldn’t see the falls at the end.
