Great trail, awesome hike, amazing waterfall.

Easy, well marked trail to hike.
This waterfall is my absolute favorite. To say that it’s stunningly beautiful is a complete understatement! It’s truly magical!
100% worth the drive and the hike to get to it!

Early morning hike on the Monday after father's day. No other hikers the entire out and back. One of the overlooks is closed since a tree fell on it, doing significant damage. The other overlook is open and several spots where you can get down to the water.

Easy hike with great reward payoff at the end. Falls were awesome and definitely highly recommended! I prefer this set of falls over Station Cove honestly. I was there all by myself in the AM! Dog did great too!

Easy out and back through and amazingly beautiful valley. Despite the damage to the upper observation deck by a fallen tree, the view of the two falls at the end was well worth it. The trail was well maintained and in excellent condition. The grade was surprisingly easy. We’d go again.

Fav trail!

Great hike. Beautiful falls. Will definitely go back once the upper deck is fixed

Loved this one! It’s well marked, multiple easy creek crossings, beautiful falls! I recommend dipping your feet in the water & enjoying the refreshing cold water!

Beautiful falls! The water was so refreshing to stand in after the climb down. The climb down to the falls is steep.

a short walk to the falls. super prettty!! i would recommend coming at an odd time to avoid crowds. dinner time is when i went. there was only me and 2 couples.

Started on the right side behind the visitor's lodge and hiked up, then took the steps back down. Highly recommend going in the morning before it gets hot and people start flowing in! We were finished around noon (on a Sunday) and the steps were packed with people on our way down. Also as a previous review stated please do not take your dog on the steps! There are so many other ways up or down that are less painful for them.

Enjoyed the distance and views with bridges. Narrow at certain areas but the waterfall was well worth it!

Great trail! Beautiful view! Super helpful staff.

Super easy hike, great for brining a lunch. if you're making a trip, I'd recommend also doing Tallulah Gorge that is about 20-30 minutes away.

Oh my gosh of my favorite falls thus far. So gorgeous. Hike isn’t bad.

Steep going down to the base of the falls but worth it. Highly recommend. We did it with two tweens and a preschooler.

This was a great trail! Very well maintained, muddy in some spots but easy to get around. Love love love crossing the creeks! The waterfall is spectacular and a great place to take a break and cool off before hiking out. Can’t wait to visit this one again!

Easy hike. Will go back once the upper deck has been fixed.

Swiming hole!!! Much more private than Graveyard Fields just up the road.

An easy hike over a well maintained trail. Easy parking. A must stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Despite the name, wear your fur. Otherwise there might be pointing, giggling, and shrinkage.

Five woofs!

Beautiful hike. Steep hill down but totally worth the hike down. nice swimming area & deff enjoyable for the whole family. Our dog loved it as well!! if you go deff take the trip all the way down to the fall. Observation deck is nice but to get the full experience go to the bottom!!! 2$ parking for a car make sure to take change lol!!

This is a well maintained and well marked trail. We have had some bad storms this summer, so there are a couple downed trees that you will need to maneuver. Also, it is muddy and slick in places. Young children will need to be watched carefully. There are some moderate drop offs. The stream crossings are fun and easy and add to the variety on this trail. Lots of roots, so hiking shoes are advised. Because we’ve had a lot of rain, the falls were amazing!!! All in all a really enjoyable hike.

Very convenient to Highlands or Clemson.
Nice walk through mixed hardwood forest to beautiful wide falls. Several stream crossings but trail is reasonably well-maintained.
Hiked with wife and teenage kids. Reasonably fit but not in a hurry, took approximately 50 minutes each way. We hiked in a drizzle- barely felt the rain.
Best view of the falls is across the creek so you’ll want to wade. Walking stick recommended.
Pit toilet in parking lot.

Easy walk and a little over grown but not too bad!

Beautiful hike & fabulous falls. Really enjoyed this trail. The dog loved it too! Pass over 4-5 creeks. Well marked & well maintained.

Shady trail and nice enough but no great views as you go along. Agree it’s is easy for anyone that can go up and down hills. The real attraction is the falls at the end. Very pretty. The swimming hole is family-friendly and crowded at midday.

Stunning falls and nice trail!
