Great hike. Bridge was down so need to cross on small log or get wet. Well worth the hike.

I have hiked this trail since I started living in GA. I stumbled across Indian Grave Road looking for the AT. Was meeting a friend who was section flip-flopping the AT. That’s what we call his journey.

Recently I noticed the bridge being down and am interested in seeing a repair done. I am currently reaching out to to some Boy Scout Troops to see if can get volunteer help. Things are starting to look good as far as getting in front of Scout people who matter.

I have been in the construction industry my entire life. I wouldn’t mind seeing where I can get materials donated or discounted.

I would love to know how to reach someone who may have “control” of this trail. Forest service? State?

Would love to see this bridge get repaired. It is a beautiful surprise at the bottom. Absolutely one of my favorites! One of my top recommended hikes to most people in conversation.

I will attach a contact email for anyone interested or could help provide information.

Greatly appreciated!


Unfortunately the tower was closed but it was beautiful at the top anyway. You could still climb up the stairs of the tower, just couldn’t get into the actual top viewing area.

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

We stayed in an Airbnb on the other side of the trail, it was a fun hike but there was very little signage from that direction.

Great trail, but watch for the turns. It is largely unmarked. There is a large stone arrow on the ground at one junction that directs you the correct way. As previously reviewed, the last bit of the trail leading to the Chattooga River is STEEP! The views of the falls and the river make the climb worth it.

Signs posted saying trail closed due to bridge out. Did not get to hike this trail today. Disappointed. If it would not have been posted, would have hiked it anyway.

Beautiful view from the top.

Nice, short hike with the dog. Moderate enough to get a good sweat started but not too hard to slow you down. Very pretty.

Pretty falls! Watch for snakes though!

Attempted this hike a couple of weeks ago, but there was a wasp's nest on the trail and we got stung! Will be returning to try again soon, with longer socks and quicker speed. Everything was fine until then. Trail was quiet and pleasant on a Thursday evening.

Beautiful views and we'll maintained trail. No worries crossing at broken bridge! Just made it more fun. Keep your eyes open or you'll miss the turn!

Great for a moderate hike and a pretty waterfall at the end. Camped there a few times and will continue to go back!

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.

Great little hike. Didn’t take but 1.5 hours to get to the falls. Pack a swimsuit as it a beautiful place to swim if the weather is right. Great because it follows the trail. Trail can get slippery when wet. Saw two snakes so best to be on the lookout.

This was a Super Hike! We only hiked to the Panther Creek Falls, which was plenty!
7 miles round trip and we had no desire to go beyond the falls. It was a warm day and there were plenty of people and dogs! We had lunch and waded into the water. Delightful! The hike was pretty energetic with so many uphills, and downhills with tree roots for steps and boulders to slide down or climb up. We will definitely hike this trail again in October or November. There are many visitors to these falls and it was pretty busy on the Sunday we were there. Next time we’ll go during the week.

Very beautiful sets of falls. However mileage is closer to 1.45 in and 1.45 out to the road trailhead for a total of about 2.9 to 3 miles RT. Whoever posted this and said 1.1 in and 1.1 out must have been at the Rabun Beach campground trailhead. Trail is easy/moderate to the second set of falls and then moderate/difficult to the final and third set of falls. Overall worth the 3 miles.

The hike was nice being right next to the creek the whole way, was soothing hearing the mini rapids. The falls was like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, well in a sense. :)

Paved walking trail with moderate elevation. Great for most skill levels with benches along the way to catch your breath.

decent trail. clean. family friendly.

Love both Falls. Easy hike. It’s less crowded to go in the winter but anytime is beautiful

Took about an hour there and back taking our time. Good hiking that not too hard but gives you a workout.

My second time here. Definitely worth the drive from Orlando.
What I like about this trail is that you are hiking along the water.

we got there just before sunset. it was amazing. one of the best sunsets I've ever watched. I bet the sunrise would be amazing here as well. this would be a great place to stargaze if anyone's looking for an adventurous and romantic date idea! be sure to bring a flashlight if you plan to watch the sunset, the service road gets very dark, phone lights will not cut it.

Good hike; if you do geocaching like I do, DO NOT TAKE THE LEFT FORK! It is as stated, a cliff. The climb back up wasn’t worth it for me. The hike was easy but fulllll of silk weaving critters that seem to have silk throughout the entire trail!! I had to walk with a branch out in front to catch most of the silkies.

You definitely need to be in shape for this one! We kept going after the first waterfall which led to another waterfall. I thought it was a moderate hike but it was too much for my husband. I had 2 liters of water and he had 3, and we both ran out about a mile from the trailhead, making the last bit very difficult. I would recommend this trail in the cooler months; July was too hot and there were a lot of wasps

the amount of water coming from the mountain is based on the rain fall so sometimes this falls is pouring out water and sometimes a trickle but still a nice easy hike

I will say I liked this trail, but there are some things that people should be aware of. 1. Wear hiking boots/shoes. There are lots of roots and wet spots, you'll want a little grip. 2. carry 2 bottles of water per person. If you do this during the summer you'll definitely want it, if not a 3rd. 3. I took my mom. She's not a hiker and It was a trail I had never been on before. This trail was very difficult for her. She didn't get all the way to the end as she was worn out. 4. The last part of the trail is harder and more steep, just be prepared for it. It also has downed grab fences because of trees in that area. It's a very pretty waterfall and a good workout. I will be going back and enjoying nature there again. Happy trails all.

Live very close to Panther Creek. I have done the trail at all times of the year. It is always beautiful.
