Beautiful, secluded trails. They advise you watch out for rattlesnakes, but personally the spider population is more way active.

Cherokee Falls is my favorite! We have hiked it several times! This is one of the best waterfalls and swimming areas I've seen! A lot of steps, but totally worth it!!

This trail has a good mix of ups and downs. Great for exercise

One of the most beautiful waterfalls in the state, in my opinion.

Don’t mind the signs, jump the fence and take a dip at your peril, the water is great! ;)

Recent rains have made some areas along the trail a little muddy but they have made the falls pretty fine. I've hiked this several times but the volume of water going over the falls is the best I have ever seen.
This is very good hike if you don't mind crossing the stream in the water due to the damaged bridge. That was really fun once you get in and try it.

I highly recommend doing this hike early in the morning because it does get busy. The bridge is broken but, if you feel comfortable doing so, the creek is pretty easy to cross and not very deep (I'm 5'1 and it came up to my knees at the deepest). You see two beautiful falls and can swim in one, blue hole falls. If you're planning on swimming, make sure it hasn't rained for a few days because the current is really strong and the fall is unswimmable if it just rained.

Easy trail along Scenic Smith Creek, but costs $3 per person and is usually busy: hardly “lightly trafficked,” as indicated. Still, we saw a small bear across the creek. Nice.

This is a stroll not a hike :-) The falls are worth visiting.

One of my favorite trials. Must be visited at least once each season.

Stretch before you head back up -- it'll help!

The waterfalls were awesome! The directions from the app were a little off. Just follow the hand painted signs to the correct turn. The pics were helpful to see the creek crossing in your car.

We love this place!!!❤️❤️❤️

Beautiful falls! Trail is kept in good condition. Be prepared to drive through a stream to get to the trail head. Bridge was also out on trail.

Pretty trail, even though it’s really easy and paved. Worth doing, although more of a troll than a hike

Great trail , wonderful time with family and friends.

Easy short hike. The 1.5 mile dirt road to the trail head wasn’t too be but I could see this being a challenge on a rainy day. The waterfall and pool were awesome. Easy to get to and enjoy. Water was a little cold but you adjust on a warm day.

The falls are very nice. Lots of people

Very short little hike. the trail is very welll kept and the views are sensational

My husband and I hike this trail as often as possible as we live relatively close to it. This is a beautiful park, and this hike is pretty strenuous for me at parts. Trail is narrow at spots, especially on the stairs.

Fantastic trail for all ages! Beautiful double waterfalls!

Simply beautiful easy trail.

Great trail! Lots of ups and down to keep your heart pumping and plenty of beautiful views to keep you interested along the way.

These falls are stunning and the walk up there is beautiful as well. We took my 80 year old mother to see them. She uses a walker and on the very steep bits (which there are several) she had to sit and be pushed. Coming down this way was a tad harrowing. While it is wheelchair accessible, it is very steep in places, so whoever is pushing needs to be prepared for a good work out going up and down. But is was worth the effort, especially to see the look of joy and wonder on my mom's face.

Pretty view of the falls. One of the more crowded hikes along the Chatahoochee

We hiked this trail at midday on 7/20/18. Our group consisted of 5 teenagers and 3 adults age late 40’s, to early 50’s. I would rate the trail as easy on the way down and moderate on the way back up. The trees keep the trail fairly cool for this time of year. Nice refreshing swimming hole at mid trail with nice waterfall and another waterfall at the bottom of the trail. Water shoes and a change of clothes if you’re going for a swim are recommended for this hike. We’d definitely do it again. Get out and enjoy!

gets very Rocky and the trail gets narrow after rain.

There’s a drive through a small shallow creek and a long windy drive. Decently not meant for a small car. Hike was beautiful. Would do it again. Not too long and not to high of an elevation. Water fall was amazing!! There are also a few short cuts for people who don’t want to hike the whole way

Easy drive to trailhead. Short, easy hike. Refreshing cold water! Will return with more people to enjoy!

This was our first trail to backpack overnight. The scenery is beautiful. It is a pretty hard trail the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles. There are 4 campsites. The campsites just have a flat spot for your tent and a fire pit. The only complaint was that campsite one was not marked and was right on the trail. The trail is a little grown over at places with tall grass and poison oat so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and bring bug spray. This is black bear country so be smart. We will definitely be returning.

Worthwhile trip to see the falls. Great workout. Thankfully dogs are welcome on the hike.
