I loved it! It was wet and slippery in places since it had just rained yesterday and, yes, it is a little challenging (that's good) but those views are worth it!! I was hiking at a decent pace and the round trip took me about 2.5 hours .

Love this trail. Great challenge, but not too difficult.

Beautiful scenery. Absolutely beautiful during fall whenever the leaves are changing.

Wonderful trail. Perfect for an early morning hike. Especially beautiful after a good rain. There’s so much wildlife and wild plantlife to appreciate on this trail. Also makes for perfect pictures. 10/10

Fantastic trail, Lots of beautiful lookout points. Include the waterfalls trail and you have a great 7 miles of waterfalls, Streams and gorgeous canyon views.

Nice hike to do in the fall. We loved the water features along the way!

Nice easy trail with pretty overlooks of mountains.

Definitely difficult terrain, especially the last portion near the river. Fallen leaves cover slippery mud, tree roots and rocks. I wish I had a walking stick! Trail isn’t marked well in some areas. However, it might be our age? We were passed a few times by younger hikers that were almost skipping down the trail!

Wonderful hike especially if you have a photographers eye. Great workout as well.

The scenery is fantastic, especially in Autumn when the leaves are changing. There are plenty of ups and down, but it's mostly uphill until you reach the midway point. There are a bunch of roots and rocks, some narrow points and such. Overall, it's a nice, fairly easy hike, but I could definitely see it being a bit slick after a rain, and there are some rocks that certainly looked stable until I stepped on them.

This trail it's self is nothing to talk about, but the falls are decent.

Beautiful hike - lots of roots and rocks! This time I combined with Sitton Gulch for 10+ mile hike

Beautiful trail!!

This was a wonderful fall trail with interesting changes in topography. The trail could be marked a little better, but if you use the trail map from this app on your phone to double check your location you’ll be fine. I started on the opposite side of the parking lot and didn’t have a problem. The forest was very quiet, somewhat eerily so, and hardly anyone was there in the middle of the week.

Great hike if you want to wonder why the hell you aren’t back to your car yet for a couple miles. Rocks near the bottom are super slick and could make for a sore buttocks so be careful. Decent views. Easy in, hard out.

Hiked the trail past few days...any Lost And Found?

gorgeous waterfall!, took creek trail up and and it wasn't a bad hike at all. going down we went down east ridge trail which was pretty sketchy. lots of loose rocks and erosion. I would def do this again...

Hiked this trail to see fall foliage and we weren’t disappointed. It was gorgeous and we got many beautiful pictures. The forest was ablaze with color and the falls were a treat. Trail is easy to follow. Saw a snake on the way back. I think it was a garter snake.

Very good trail. 2.6 miles and worth the effort! Watch out for a lot of roots along g the path though. I'd give it a moderate rating.

I love this trail. It has a streams, waterfalls and gorgeous mountain views. My favorite hike in Georgia.

Gorgeous!! The hike would be classed MODERATE as rated. Mainly because of the roots and rocks one has to navigate on virtually the whole trail. The views are incredible and we caught the Fall foliage just at the right time!! November 3rd was a perfect day for our hike. I recommend this to all my hiking friends.

We have hiked it in and out, but usually we bring 2 cars and leave one at the lot past Preachers Rock and camp. Lots of fun either way!

Beautiful and a good hike with some challenging parts! Crowded at the beginning/end. Do the waterfalls trail while you’re there!

Loved this trail!! I would say it’s an easy hike with sections of moderate. Mostly a steady grade except as you first leave the falls area! I traveled from the Cleveland area, GPS directed a different route going the falls than when I left. Take Hwy 64 route to access pull off areas with fantastic views.

Great overlooks. Beautiful fall colors Nov 4th. We got there about 1030 and not awful crowded but on the way out near the beginning of the trail lots of hikers just arriving. Glad we came on the earlier side! Took us a little over 2 hours. This trail has some ups/downs but a good deal of fairly level walking too. Definitely lots of roots and rocks.

Awesome trail! Steps were a good workout. Beautiful views of the falls. Not that crowded of a trail. Very rocky in some places so watch your step!

Good ups and downs with reflective hallowed ground to take. Tall, thin trees of all kinds. Some fallen with some gnarly roots to check out. Great for families. Our fit bits marked the loop at 2.7 miles. The app says 1.5 and the sign to enter the trail says 1.7 so it must have got extended over time for a wider circle.

This trail was nice. The moderate rating is fair. The view at the top was spectacular. We hiked in the fall and all the leaves were changing. The waterfall was also nice. My 4 star rating was due to the fact that you are hiking along a major interstate and the noise was not what we were looking for on a hike through the woods.

Great and easy hike! Beautiful in the fall.

Wow! Beauty all around but it was definitely a Moderate hike. So many rocks and roots to navigate along the way but worth it. Just have to take your time. The water, rock formations and multiple lookouts were spectacular. Leaves were peak so lots of people. Go early and you might get some peaceful moments!
