Great, easy hike along a creek with a Falls. Good spot to camp for a night on the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain.

Not sure where the poster was at who said Jack's River trail was closed but my wife and I just went up Labor Day weekend. No signs at Dally Gap saying it was closed we hiked in 19 river crossing before setting up camp. yes the storms have drastically altered the trail. Between river crossings 2 and 3 is the most difficult. But after that it got a little easier. I always bring my machete since trails like this change all the time. the next day we made our usual light pack to go the rest way to the falls. unfortunately the trial was too obliterated and I just didnt feel like hacking through it. hopefully they get the crew out soon to do some clean up. even with out the falls it's always great camping trip.

It’s a pretty easy hike. Beautiful, but lots of hidden roots and rocks from erosion popping up. It’s easy to twist an ankle or trip. Just look down as you go.

Good quick hike with pretty waterfall. Too many tourists but still nice. Would come back to do Weaver Creek crossing which is about over 5 miles

Great hike to take family and friends. Easy, short, and very photogenic falls at the end. You can actually walk into the base of the falls to sit and stand while they wash over you.

As of 9/2/18 the Beech Bottom trail is CLOSED due to storm damage. So if you do decide to make the trip be prepared to hike at your own risk, there are rangers in the area. That said, people are still hiking this trail so here is a little info on the storm damage. The main trail to the river is cleared but the river side trails are littered with major dead fall (full trees) but have work arounds forged by others it you look for them.

As of 9/2/18 the Jacks River Trail is CLOSED due to storm damage. It's an amazing trail and hopefully they will open again soon but as of now, hike at your own risk. There are a lot of rangers in the area. If you do brave it, there is some serious dead fall (full tree piles) on the river side trails you will have to forge around. It's closed for a reason, so be prepared. Beech Bottom to the falls is also closed but see my review there for more info.

Beautiful trail! I was able to hike it with my mom who’s 63.

One of my favorite trails to hike. Pretty easy and the waterfall is beautiful. The 5 mile dirt road to it is amazing as well. Love the view!

Nice easy trail for kids. Did this with 4 kids from 2 - 8. The falls are beautiful and there are great rocks to sit and climb on which made the kids happy.

Easy hike along the Upper section of the Ocoee River from the Ocoee Whitewater Center to Ocoee Dam #3. River is usually low. Lots of pools and large rocks exposed when low. High water during dam releases for rafting and kayaking on the weekends from mid May to mid September.

This is a nice easy two mile round-trip walk, suitable even for small children. The falls at the end are serene and well worth the trip. There is plentiful camping at the trail head (where the AT crosses the forest road). I took this one as my warm-up for the day, carrying nothing but my coffee mug, before taking the Springer Mountain loop.

Short, easy, and well maintained trail. Starts and finishes at the Ocoee Whitewater Center. Most interesting part of the hike was walking on the bridge crossing over the Ocoee, otherwise not much to see. If you are looking for a short/easy hike in the area, I would recommend the Rhododendron Trail.

Beautiful waterfall! Tip: Some of the forest service dirt roads are for high clearance vehicles only. Check out their maps to choose the best access for you. Even some of the roads marked for passenger vehicles might not be suitable for sedans that are low to the ground - due to potholes. https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/conf/maps-pubs

Beautiful walk along the Ocoee River - not a lake, as stated.

Loved it! The falls were beautiful!

All of the reviews were very helpful. The entire trail is easy until you get to the falls. When you turn left at the falls sign, the last 100 yards is descending down stairs and a slippery root filled trail. This was an excellent first hike in Tennessee.

As falls go in GA this is an easy hike to a short creek falls with two camping sites on the creek. Certainly not to be compaired to a top ten in Ga. Good canopy for a cooler hike. From trail head to the falls is .8

The wife and I were on vacation in blue ridge, so we decided to find a waterfall close by. Long curvy roads but a nice a waterfall.

Easy hike about .5 mile to the falls but we kept going for a little ways. Easy but pretty hike very much worth it if your ever in the area.

The BMTA volunteers did an amazing job on this Re-route! So clean and beautiful! It was so nice to be the only ones there! Peaceful and serene to just sit and listen to the sound of the water, birds and leaves blowing in the slight breeze! Thank you!

Nice hike. We combined it with Stanley Gap. The falls are great. Be careful if at the top, a young man slipped and fell when we were there. Several people at the falls, but that should be expected, especially in the summer.

Great little hike with a beautiful waterfall as payoff. There are a few really muddy spots on the trail so make sure you have the correct shoes.

This is a beautiful hike to a waterfall.

Very nice falls. The hike is short but there are plenty of other trails to hit while you’re there. We did a nice 7.2 mile loop. Go early to avoid the crowd.

Beautiful falls. Great for family photos. But can be quite crowded. Nice little hike. Can be steep in some sections but nothing too difficult.

Short trail with good waterfall. Was great for my 9 year old and 2 Jack Russell’s. Watch out for stinging insects, my son was stung twice by hornets.
