This is one of my favorite trails. To me as a 38 year old with knee issues this is moderate to hard. I love water trails and this one hits the jack pot!

this trail should not be rated easy but nice trail nice cs on slickrock trail

This is NOT an easy trail and not recommended for out and back. After leaving Farr Gap you enter Wilderness and a steep drop - 40% grade - you don't want to hike up this trail. Great way to get to Slick Rock Creek and beautiful camping spots. Good for multi day trip to Yellow Hammer Gap, Nichols Cove, Big Fat Gap to Hangover, Bob Bald and Beech Gap. It was part of the Benton Mackaye Trail but BMT was rerouted because of the dangerous crossing (at high water events) at Slick Rock Creek.

This was an absolutely beautiful, remote trail run in the Cohuttas. Be mindful and study a map before you do it, as the trail isn’t very well marked, but so long as you study a map and know which direction the trails heading in, you’ll be fine! Pictures don’t do this gem justice.

Trail is to the right & there is a map.

Pretty insignificant trail. Very seldom trafficked makes you question if you’re even on the trail (+ no blazes or anything). Best views are from the beginning. Should be rated hard.

Getting there: Our map provides two ways and we took the shortest time option which was the longest in the forest... bad idea. We added 2 hours to our commute because we took this way and it’s mainly a dirt road with a bunch of holes and I drive my civic.

well to start with i would not rate it easy. the trail head is flat then all down hill from there, they do call it stiffknee. once you decend the walk through the hollers are great, the junction of little slick rock and slick rock creek is worth a sore knee. just remember what went must go up. i would plan a good day for this hike, take some hammocks and cook a meal and relax, you will burn the calories on the hike out. great trail last i was on.

About a month ago I hiked from Three Forks to the falls on a rescue mission for a hiker in distress. This was my first hike to the falls and have to agree with Cory, I would'nt bring small kids. This is a tough section of trail, at least from the falls back to Three Forks. Seen some wildlife including an approx 3' timber rattler.

I love this trail. However, giving it an "easy" rating is crazy. I've been on many trails I'd rate easy before I'd consider this one easy. My friends and I judge all other trails by stiffknee on our stiffknee scale. Just saying.

This trail is specified easy on here. It should be difficult! Unless your going in and not coming back out and going to the other side to get picked up. Lots of blow down in the cove on the way to little slick rock but worth it . Very beautiful.

Started at the bottom of Panther Creek where in flows into the Conasauga river. The trail follows the north side of the creek and then crosses over to the south. Got lost and backtracked and bushwhacked back up the north side of the creek until I crossed back over to the south. Found the trail again on the south side followed it and crossed over to the north then up severely rocky and tricky trail. Continue hugging the creek until you reach some gigantic boulders and follow the little goat path to the top of the falls. Awesome sunset vista but extremely poor trail condition. Definitely not kid friendly. Bring your map and compass. Good luck!

Very long trail with a few tough spots. Outside of the tough areas thw rest of the traul is very easy. Be sure to bring plenty of water, treking poles and snacks. Very little wind reachs the trail so the it gets hot very quickly. Good hike but prefer a stronger pay off for the effort.

Amazing hike and an even better payoff at the end when you reach the falls. If you live in Georgia and enjoy hiking, this is must do either as a day hike or packing in for the weekend.

Was a very beautiful hike. I took my 6yo brother with me and the hike was definitely not kid friendly in my opinion. Other than that once we got to the waterfall the view was worth it.

This was a great trail! The part we did was more like 7.5 to 8 miles for the round trip (to the falls and back out to the cars). Be sure to bring lots of water. The trail gets narrow and steep at times, think climbing on tree roots to get to the next part of the trail, but the falls at the end with the sandy beach to rest and refreshing water to swim in, it's so worth it! We went camping and found plenty of creek side spots and clearings in the woods with places for fires already started about one mile into the trail.

Great scenery along with a great hike. Lots of places to stop along the way and set up camp. Can't wait to go back!

This is a beautiful scenic trail. Lots of trailside camping along the creek. There are several neat creek crossings. But I must let you know-I am a physically fit, seasoned hiker, and I have to say, moderate does not adequately describe this trail. Portions are relatively easy, but more than 1/2 of the there and back trail is difficult to extremely difficult. Steep elevation changes, broken handrail/cables, and blazes left up from the initial trail's path. The blazes from the original trail's path were not removed when the trail was rerouted several years back. Both sets of blazes converge after some time, but if you follow the older blazes, you will end up crawling hand over hand up steep embankments. The view of the falls is ok from the trail terminus, but not spectacular.

Excellent trail with many scenic views. Trail isn't marked being in a wilderness area. Great access to Slickrock Creek after 3.7 miles down hill. The most beautiful campsite you'll find anywhere at the trail's terminus with the Slickrock Creek trail.
