Easy hike till very end at Falls, cross creek two times. But if you put in the effort and climb above this fall, there is a bigger one above it that is beautiful.

Short hike. Water flowing nicely. Definitely NOT Hard as AllTrails rated. A little steep in some places but not difficult at all. Several nice cascades. Parking is available for only one car at the trailhead.

Our first hike of 2018 and it didn’t disappoint. It was raining and 50 so we didn’t see many people. The trails where well marked, the trail width was good and the falls were beautiful. The area would be great for camping and hiking all the trails.

Easy trail to above the falls. Many nicely laid out rock steps down to the bottom. There are hand rails most of the way down. Be careful there are wet spots.

Awesome trail especially if you like venturing off trail.

great trail

really beautiful. officially my favorite hike in chattanooga.

it's ok. like everyone else says, very rocky most of the trail and horses do this trail. also about 3 miles in, a fresh water stream floods the trail so you have to go off trail. also very thick with brush & trees at times. lastly not really any great views even during winter.

Clear trails, very well kept!

We had a great hike! We ended with the blue hole...so gorgeous. It’s a great “quick” hike. Will return.

Great trail. The fall was beautiful. Very busy trail with many people and dogs. However I wish it was a little better marked.

kayak there a lot

great hike. .not to long
going back up is another story lol

Great trail for all ages. It’s an old mining road so the trail is wide and graveled. Runs right along a stream (or a big river when it’s been raining) for some gorgeous scenery.

Fantastic falls!! Made the trip when my dad was in town and we always do an annual hike. I had heard this was a good hike. I would say it is moderate but then again it was in February and wasn't hot out. I can see this being difficult in the summer heat. Make the time to go to the top. There isn't a really good view of the falls from there but the climb up and views are worth it.

Good trail with great scenery. Hiked it on weekend and had a fair amount of traffic.

Great hike for the whole family. Very easy until the last part before falls where it can be steep in places. We hike this trail often with kids and the falls never disappoints.

Quick trail with one of the most beautiful waterfalls at the end. Very easy until the waterfall. Can choose to just view from top or take the steep steps down. Well worth the hour round trip for non experienced hikers.

Love it! Such a beautiful waterfall, not a bad hike! One of my favs

Moderately challenging uphills. When you make it to the suspension bridge, turn right and you’ve got roughly 20 more minute to mushroom rock. Wear stable shoes as there are some dicey descents, and being your walking sticks. Perfect way to get lost for a few hours. Bonus picnic area at the bridge.

Great hike with kids!

Short uphill hike with several small waterfalls and cascades. Towards the top is a small rock house. Great scenic walk.

Great photo ops here! The trail up to the main falls gets narrow at one point, but manageable. Can't wait to go back.

Creek was way up and raging we felt it was to dangerous to cross so we only got to hike half of the trail. The trail follows the creek at one point it was a little difficult to navigate / climb the rocks.. I will try agin later in the year after the creek drops. And yes like the other reviews there are a lot of baseball size rocks on the trail but we didn’t find them that hard to hike.

we hiked from Childers Creek to beyond Big Bend area for a total of 7 miles. Very nice hike. Good trail. A little wet in a few spots but nothing we couldn't get around. We will do this trail again.

Great falls!
