Very well kept trail. Challenging but doable!

on Rainbow Falls Trail

A good hike. Only opens on Fridays to Sundays. Mostly unpaved, with rain it could be a bit muddy. My 5 year old did it. It took a bit time to hike up, but coming down was a breeze.

I hit the West Rim Loop today and it was amazing! The trails were well-marked and very well-maintained. Took me right at 3 hours and I was moving at a moderate pace with several stops for water breaks and picture takes! Definitely one I’d do again.

Great little hike. Most of it is easy but about 1/4 mile is uphill. Nice camping spots along the trail!

little bit of a workout but totally worth it

Nice enjoyable hike, it took only a hr to hike up to the falls. The falls are well worth the hike.

Offers a different overlook perspective of the canyon. I especially like the large boulders overlook. The sections that are near water are beautiful. If you want to see rhododendron, this is the trail you want.

What a fantastic place. Short steep hike up to one of the most dramatic waterfalls I've ever seen. make sure to take water shoes for exploring around the creek.

Awesome hike!

Our first hike in the Smoky Mountains! Very scenic with a beautiful waterfall in the end! A little steep but a nice challenge. Our group ranged from 6 to 62 and we all enjoyed it! Will definitely do again on our next visit!

Beautiful view of lake Lanier and Chattahoochee river. We enjoyed the beach towards the end of our hike.

We did the West Rim loop along with Hemlock and Cherokee falls. This place has the feeling of being out west when your actually in Ga. It is a busy spot, but well worth fighting the crowds to see some once an a lifetime spots.

Fun family hike!

Pretty nice trail. Steep so it’s a little challenging. The falls were cool but not amazing

Great hike and views. Rocky terrain so take caution. Marked trail leads to Mt. LeConte.

Neat well kept trail

Beautiful Views! Hike was a little difficult

There is not a 2-mile trail - only a 3 and 7 mile trail.

The trail is actually 8.5 miles (Website), and challenging beginners. We missed the right turn on Duncan Ridge trail and made a right on a blue trail walking a mile in a half off trail to Bird Gap. We had to turnaround to get back on course. Loved the hike, I would do it again, but taking my time not to missed the right turn.

Pretty quiet. Good run. Steady mild ups or downs. Finished next to a nice small lake. Drinking fountain in parking lot. No restrooms. Good wildlife sounds.

Love this Trail. It is a little piece of heaven in the middle of suburbia!

Beautiful falls, but be weary of the crowds. There are too many people that climb on and around the falls (good luck getting any decent photos) and a lot of graffiti on some fallen logs. People need to be more respectful of nature. I only gave it two stars for those reasons, otherwise the falls are stunning after a good rainfall.

Pretty amazing hike.

absolutely beautiful shaded hike, breathtaking huge waterfall we thought it was the first little one but ten mins after that there is a huge waterfall you can sit on the Rocks and feel it's refreshing mist, it only took us 2 hrs to get there and hour and 15 mins back well worth the hike

love this trail! great boulders in the river for relaxing, and a decent workout too. the ruins are cool.

Bring plenty of snacks and water

Was a nice trail . The beginning of the walk there are 120 stairs to climb then levels out at the top. Waterfall is amazing!

Great trail that takes you from views Lake Lanier from the parking lot, around Buford Dam, then along the Chattahoochee River and in and out of the woods with plenty of terrain changes. Nice challenge for trail running. Will definitely go again.

Was worth it for us. We went in the spring and it was cold. It was also just after a large snow storm, so the snow was melting and we got a gorgeous view of the falls! Hiked with my 11 year old and he did great! Took us 2.5 to get up and 1.5 to go down. Several smaller falls along the route as well.
