Great hike! Strenuous but worth it for the views

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

Climbed Table Rock 3/16. Good and strenuous climb. Nice weather day

Lower trail is in great shape, however the upper portions have many burned trees. Some trees are blocking the path, as well as 2 spots where recently uprooted trees are a bit sketchy to move around. One is at a water crossing, and there is a 5 foot hole right where the trail was prior to the fire. Point being, be careful, especially if you have little guys traveling with you.

Nice place and quick stop off interstate to explore. The sounds birds chirping, sound of water rushing down the rocks, butterflies everywhere so relaxing after Atlanta traffic! Seen people doing yoga by the cascades. Very cool!!

Tough son of a B, so rewarding! Awesome cliff side views at the top of you stay to the right. Then you get a wide open field for campin out at the top (if you stay left when you get to the top you get to the wide open spots quicker.. so If you’re getting there late to set up camp.. stay left lol then check out the rock side views in the daylight) definitely would recommend trekkin poles!!

Great hike with great views!!! Would definitely recommend!

This was an extremely challenging trail, but it doesn’t get challenging until close to the actual falls and of course the OUT and UP part.

We dropped a car at the Tennessee side and drove back to Alabama side and started there so that we could through hike. I think the through hike was the best idea because we got to see different things which kept it rewarding rather than an out and back situation.

It’s worth it but if it’s rainy it is quite slippery and a little scary. Trekking poles or walking sticks are essential in this sort of situation and would help even if it’s dry when you go.

Not as hard as you might think. Pick a nice clear day to enjoy the views. Great trail.

A beautiful place! Easy hike in strenuous hike out.

great hike with a rewarding view !! would definitely recommend.

I absolutely LOVE this place!! From the trail to the waterfall, it's very beautiful. I love getting in the water and absorbing everything around. It's an amazing place, no matter the season!

Great hike, definitely strenuous at parts, but the views from the rocky cliff is quite spectacular! I would love to go back and camp out there - they have some great backwoods camping spots!

Great Hike! But would not give it a "hard" difficulty.

Wouldn’t label this trail as hard, but it’s a nice hike. Have to go a little off trail if you want to get a good view of the several mini-waterfalls. Light traffic—I didn’t see anyone during my hike.

Loved it.


uphill almost the entire way with some rock scrambling ... great hike with amazing views!

Great Hike! From the TN side, the trail is around 4 miles to the "Walls Of Jericho" section. The AL and TN trails meet at the Walls and it's around 1 mile or so from the Walls of Jericho sign to the actual falls. As others have mentioned, it's a steep climb on the way out!

As always a great Mountain to climb.

Easy for its length. Not even bad in the rain. Not the most entertaining hike though

Amazing and beautiful hike with fun climbs..The distance is greater than 8mi total from the TN trailhead out and back ...and also other loop trails I noticed in the area. Hope to go back!!

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. Great hike yet slippery. According to my GPS and the sign at the parking area, this is a 8.3 mile out and back hike so not sure where the 6 miles on this app came from but it’s longer than 6 on the Alabama trail head side. Either way it’s well worth it.

Hiked the Walls this Past Saturday and loved it! It was beautiful. Very well worth it!!

Challenging, but more of a moderate trail than hard! Beautiful sights, perfect distance. Worth it!

The view is Amazing!!!

The trail was demanding but rewarding from the view

Well-marked trail. Combine this trail with the trail across the river for a great hiking day.

It is not as bad as you think but it is totally worth it

I enjoyed the trail, it offered beautiful views of the rock and the lichens growing on top. The path is well kept and marked, no easy way to get lost.
