Did this trail back in March, wonderful views and long enough for a great workout.

Absolutely beautiful. Great little hike to an amazing waterfall.

Great views during our December hike, while headed up and down, 360 degrees at the top. My only criticism is too few markings in several locations where trail forks, making AllTrails GPS location checks necessary. Be certain to check your location at the top Bald area, and walk the entire loop indicated on the AllTrails App, including towards the rock-faced area on the Northern side...great views at the edge!

Don’t do it 20+ weeks pregnant on a 90 degree day lol

Great views of the creek during the hike. Easy on the kids and dogs

A great hike to do and the overlook spots had beautiful views.

The stairs are tough on your way back up but it is worth it! It’s breathtakingly beautiful!

love the waterfalls, and huge rock formations along the creek.

It was raining when i went. looked like there would have been a great view on a sunny day. I'll definitely go back though when i can see that overlook.

great views on an awesome trail. Near the top are a row of privies provided by Army.

Well maintained trail and highly trafficked. Would be nice for a trail run if not so crowded.

We really enjoyed this hike on Nov 20. The bridge being out made the hike even more fun for me and my daughter. We crossed on the smaller fallen tree next to the bridge. Note: if you’re balance-challenged (or just don’t want to fall in 2 feet of water), be sure to grab one or two of the hiking sticks that people leave at the trailhead. They are really helpful to work your way across the log.

Very good hike, and absolutely stunning views. It is well worth making it to the top.

Lots of people! Great views! Wonderful waterfalls! Just. Go. Early. Or go on a weekday. Great gift shop for last minute forgotten items. Friendly staff!

A must if you in the area. Multiple waterfalls and campsites along the route. Well maintained

Looking up from the parking lot was intimidating, my wife and I joked about doing the winery instead. We are 60+ hikers and don’t give up easily, so up we went, and made it to the top. Apple watch says 5.06 miles, 1542 feet elevation, 3 hours and 19 seconds, including lunch and photo stops. This was a cool November hike, so no wildflowers or leaf colors, but the views were spectacular, well worth the effort.

Great workout and views. Can be busy during nice times of the year.

excellent short hike!

It is beautiful! You have to drive around a quaint little lake for a little while to get to it but it’s a very short walk. The drive combine with the walk made it even better for me. It’s a little steep at first, I wouldn’t recommend taking your grandma or someone in a wheelchair but it was gorgeous! I don’t feel like the photos do it justice. We’ll be back.

This is our new favorite waterfall trail. Several beautiful falls before the big one. Can’t believe how this little creek makes such huge noisy falls. Trail is easy, did some rock hopping to get up to see the falls come through the cliff. Didn’t climb to the top, that looked very steep and treacherous. Started around 10, lots of parking spaces. Finished around 1. Parking was scarce.

This was absolutely amazing. Mid November rain had the cascade rolling. Such a magical area. The drive along the lake was beautiful as well.

This is a great.view with a great hike!

Great for the family!

Had a great day. Beautiful scenery. Will do again in the near future.

Pleasant trail. Many viewpoints along the canyon ridges. Expect heavy traffic on weekends...

This is my new favorite - had a little bit of everything - Hiked this Sunday, Nov 11, 2018, So many things to do. I believe the waterfall is one of the best I have seen in the Ga Mountains. Weather was perfect: sunny and 40 degrees. Wore jacket on way down and stowed it on the way up. Met some really nice people. As others said the bridge was destroyed but not hard using the fallen trees to cross. There is a sign about the route being closed due to the bridge. Please ignore that and enjoy yourself. Last point, if your vehicle does not have the clearance needed to cross a small creek you will need to walk a pretty good distance to start this hike. Not sure how far - someone else would know the distance. I drove the hike in a 2015 F250 Lariat - plenty of clearance.

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