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

Very nice trail. We ll definitely do it again

Great trail. I liked the figure 8 route. Many different options. The pond is beautiful. We saw a lot of fish and a turtle. Although the parking lot was full, we only saw two people on the trails. This is definitely a trail we will return to.

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!

Nice hike, did the west and east loop but somehow could not find the quarry. Guess that will give me a reason to go back and do it again.

Beautiful. There are several places to view the canyons from the top if you dont want to hike down. Some things to note that I haven't seen mentioned- there is a $5/car parking fee AND there is a bit of water at the bottom of the canyons. Nothing deep, maybe an inch or less, but if you aren't wearing the right shoes you will end up soggy! Still, a great hike. We will be going back to do the longer loop.

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.

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.

This is a beautiful spot and a gorgeous waterfall. There are several steps but there is a guard rail . It is a easy walk.

This trial offers the same beautiful views of the canyon floor as the backcountry loop trail but with a lot less mileage

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!

This hike DOES NOT include DeSoto falls. Can an administrator with Alltrails please revise? Desoto falls is north of here a few miles. I have it in my "activity feed" for reference.

Went on a Tuesday around 5pm, there was only one car in the parking lot and we passed that one person at the very beginning of the trek. We only did the west loop because it would've gotten close to dark if we had done both loops. The west loop has great up and down's and it's nice to be up on the Ridgeline. There was a huge tree down in the train and lots of overgrowth so carry a stick to knock down all of the cobwebs because you're going to walk into ALOT of them, but you're outside and it's lightly trafficked so it's to be expected. Really loved this trail and can't wait to come back and see the east loop with the quarry. Also, can't wait for the leaves to change because it's going to be gorgeous. It's only 40 minutes from my house and will be well worth coming back several more times.

Went in from the parking lot for Raven Cliff Falls. Had to ford the creek a couple times which made it more fun.Would suggest doing it from proper trailhead if you're not very adventurous.

Trail in great shape, easy, hope they fix the primary viewing deck soon.

We only had time to do 1 hike, and we were so glad we chose this one.

Took my son and dog for an afternoon trip. Easy trail and safe. Beautiful views.

This our trial run to get our packs adjusted before starting on the Application trail. we have been going here for many years, and love it

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

4th time out here this year. The canyon walls are gorge-ous.

Not a difficult walk down to the bottom of the canyon, from there on it’s pretty flat and a lot of fun to explore!

We came on a holiday, and a lot of the falls are dried up right now, so this one was very crowded. We'll definitely go back earlier tomorrow!

It's a nice walk down to the falls. They are worth it. Right now part of the bridge is closed because if a downed tree. Happy trails all.

Just hiked yesterday with my hubby and dog. we arrived at 12:30 in the afternoon and the trailhead was nearly empty. This hike is beautiful with tons of wildflowers and the quarry is very peaceful. It is also a beautiful fall hike. a great hidden gem :) The trail says 4.2 but my GPS said 4.7 when we finished.

Nice easy hike, no one on the trail, pretty waterfalls along the trail

Down hill stroll all the way to the falls and an uphill hike back. Great for the family and not to difficult. Nice big falls at the end.

The East loop is nice, and the rock quarry is a good place to rest and take a lunch.
West loop is tough, but could use a little upkeep due to some overgrowth.
Both trials are good for training for more advanced hikes.
