great trail and view.would rate it above easy though.

This trail was beautiful and the falls are wonderful! Fairly easy trail, but follow the turn backs to the falls because if you follow the trail straight thru, it'll dead end into private property.

We love this for small children.

Beautiful waterfalls, flowing about a hundred yards right into the Chatooga River. Like past reviews state, the trail really isn't hard. It's mostly a gradual descent, about a mile and a half down an old two track. It can be confusing as it is not well marked. Go right at the fork just after the start. About a mile in, the trail veers north, you'll see an arrow made of rocks on the ground pointing the way right. You will be just over the river now on your left, and its loud. There's a side trail down towards the river, but keep going further to the red flag the left side of the trail. Go down here, straight towards the river. The trail heads down from here, and it's steep, but there are lots of trees to hold on to. Great spot on the river. There's a path up the right towards the falls, with several boulders to sit on and enjoy the falls. Or you can wade across the creek for a better trail up to the left side of the falls.

Trail is open (3/31/18).

Beautiful falls. One of my favorites yet. The rating is wrong. This hike is mostly moderate. The only section that gets your heart pumping is the uphill from the falls. An added bonus is Oppossum Creek Falls. Just down the main road a bit. A moderate 3 or more mile hike to another beautiful fall. Love the Chattooga River.

I’m not gonna say this is a bad trail, because it isn’t. It’s an easy-moderate walk to a pretty cool falls, on a very well maintained trail. What it is though, is very over trafficked. And paved. And paid access. With a fully paved parking lot. It’s great for a day hike with family and pets, but it’s not exactly the genuine “hiking experience” that I would go for either.

Awesome and so worth the walk up. It is paved, but some areas do have an incline. Our Portuguese water dog did great and we would do it again! Falls are beautiful and so much bigger than we thought!

Well worth the hike! Falls is bigger then it looks in pictures. Have to cross creek in vehicle in order to get there.

A highly trafficked tourist site with an amazing waterfall. Park fee required. Plenty of parking nice restrooms and a gift shop.

Angel Falls and the smaller Panther Falls are the hidden gems of this area. Very close to the crowded Minnehaha Falls but with much less traffic. A very easy trail to follow along the creek.

love it

The climb was well worth it! Great for kids as well.

Thanks to this app we found another trail that lead us up to one of my favorite things to explore a Fire Tower. We drove up the narrow well maintained gravel road to the trailhead gate and hiked up the wide gravel road to the top. We experienced a great butt and lung burning workout in a beautiful 55* weather sunny day. Was pleasantly surprised that you could actually go to the top of this tower and even explore inside the upper room, for most of the towers we have explored stop you just underneath those rooms. Great views at the top of Lake Burton and the many mountains that we have explored and have yet to. After enjoying the tower view, we hiked down to start on the other gated old road bed path a little over a mile and checked out a beautiful waterfall that flows down and over the path. Glassy Mtn trails gave us around 5 miles of hiking.

Family friendly it was beautiful!

This hike had plenty of beautiful scenery. Just don't misstep while you are looking at it. Trail can be very technical in spots and should probably be rated as hard for that fact. Great day hike though.

Well maintained trail. Easy to Moderate stroll to pretty impressive waterfalls. plenty of area for back country camping.

You have to drive through a creek to get up the mountain but my Chevy Cruze did fine with it. The trail is nice and the waterfalls are beautiful! And the last one is a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

A beautiful area we loved this hike ! It's a must see

I can’t imagine anyone saying anything negative about hiking at Panther Creek Falls other than the growing amount of trash I see there each time I hit the trail.
There is quite a bit a blowdown but the effort made to clean it up is obvious. The trail is fairly wide open and easy to navigate. I would recommend a good pair of boots and not sneakers that you use to run to the grocery store.

Well worth the Trip!! Plan to return for some overnight trips!!

This is hands down the best hike in the state of Georgia for those who like a spectacular challenge with a big payoff. I love to backpack this one, especially in the warmer months so I can take a dip and cool off in the falls.

A couple of great waterfalls. Short hike but worth it. Return incline steep. Hard to get to bc of creek you drive through. Many won’t want to do that.

Short paved trail that follows the creek up to two waterfalls. It is a amazing sight to see and to hear the roar of the water.
