really muddy and beach is littered with trash. I always give my dog a bath afterwards when I let him play in the smelly river of city runoff.

great trail if you are with small kids.
multiple attractions around and you can always drop by to Helen for a burger and beer afterwards.
if you look for serious hikes this trail is not for you.

Great trail with awesome views. Fairly easy hiking. There was some climbing in elevation but nothing difficult.

not really a hard hike but you can see the beauty of nature

I will be going back on a day the gorge is completely open. I loved this trail it was sooo easy because it was mostly paved. There are parts the you need a permit that is more boulder climbing. The stairs were not bad and has many places to rest! Will be going back again !

I really liked these falls. Easy to get to, the path is steep- beautiful

Great waterfall and an easy hike.

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.

3 for the hiking. nothing exciting. walking the trails is easy and maybe gets you 2 miles. nothing strenuous. the best part is the dog beach in the middle. has some natural barriers to keep the pups there.

More of a walk

Great stop enroute to Maggie Valley. Clearly marked paths, good over looks and sure footed steps. Speaking of steps...ooft! The down was easy to the suspension bridge but the up...feel the burn baby! Overall a great place to visit.

This trail is paved the entire way, so it's not a very "natural" experience. I guess it makes it more accessible to all ages, so better for families. There are other beautiful falls in the area that you can take a real hike to and that don't charge admission.

This was an easy trail that lead to a gorgeous waterfall! We brought my 8 year old brother with us and he had no issues. If you are into exploring creeks, it’s easy to get into this one and do some off-trail adventuring!

Beautiful falls. lots of people, tho.

This place is amazing. It is not for the weak. There are some tough river crossings, but this is exactly why I loved it! You must get there early (we got there at 6:30 am) to get in line at the gate. They only give out 100 permits per day to go down to the gorge floor and you cannot reserve them ahead of time. Trust me! It will be worth it.Some of the reviews in here complain about the difficulty and lack of a "real" trail.....EXACTLY why we loved it. Do the whole loop and give yourself the day to stay and enjoy it. Very beautiful

Steep but short walk to the falls but it’s worth it. Great falls and well set up

Great stroll around Red Top with views of Allatoona Lake. It’s more like 5.5 miles total.

An absolute beautiful National Park. Well worth the price of admission. I was especially impressed with the Lions hiking trail for the blind.

While this was great in the past it was so overgrown we couldn't make it to the water part this time. huge disappointment.

Beautiful. There are several places to view the canyons from the top if you dont want to hike down. Some things to note that I haven't seen mentioned- there is a $5/car parking fee AND there is a bit of water at the bottom of the canyons. Nothing deep, maybe an inch or less, but if you aren't wearing the right shoes you will end up soggy! Still, a great hike. We will be going back to do the longer loop.

This trial offers the same beautiful views of the canyon floor as the backcountry loop trail but with a lot less mileage

Done the trails to Hurricane falls. Sooooo many steps down 560 so that means 560 up. Legs was quivering after this but well worth the hike. Breath taking views !
Loved it and will do this one again.

I've been hiking this trail 2 to 3 times a month for the last five or six years. Winter, spring, summer, and fall I keep coming back.It helps keep you in shape for other more difficult hies but it is best used to get some alone time. I go during the week and often times can hike the whole way without encountering another soul.
My dog has been along on most every hike and knows her way around without hesitation. I love hiking in north Ga. but this one is home!

Only had time to buzz down to the bridge, then down to the water’s edge and back up to the visitor center before a wash out rainstorm. The place is primarily man-made steps as opposed to a nature trail, but the views are still worth a quick stopover. The stairs are all open-grating, so please reconsider taking your dog, especially if they have small paws.

While being completely paved (not my favorite), this trail is definitely worth visiting. The falls are absolutely beautiful. The trail is short and sweet, well maintained and dog friendly. VERY packed when I went to visit. I wouldn't really say this is a hike - more like an uphill walk.
