Trails were confusing at first. A few unmarked splits but all in all it’s a great little loop. Will be back out there again.

Nice hike with limited views. Road in kinda sucked.

Fun trail. Steep and quick. Starts off easy, but when u hit the steps!!! Get ready. Nice view at the top. Once you get to the amphitheater it’s really it as far as view...trail continues a bit, but eventually turns into a vehicle access road, don’t know where that ends up, would be fun if ur a runner.

A tree took out a large part of the upper viewing platform, so you couldn’t see the upper Falls well, but besides that, it’s a nice hike. Wish you could get down to the water more easily but if you back track when you come down the stairs, you can access the river.

Well worth the hike! Falls is bigger then it looks in pictures. Have to cross creek in vehicle in order to get there.

I found this trail to be easy going down and hiking along the paths at the bottoms of the canyon. Coming up provided a first class workout as you climb up 600 stairs. But the beautiful views, the scenic river, the gorgeous waterfalls made it all worthwhile. The sights and sounds were amazing and beyond what I was hoping to find there. Loved it and will be taking friends back to visit this trail again.

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!!

stunning!!! the rock quarry is breathtaking. I would suggest going in the fall. the colors were fantastic when we hiked it a few years back.

Beautiful hike. A little challenging but definitely worth it!

Did this trail in March 2018 and it’s a great day hike. The first 2/3 of the Trail ascends up Blood Mountain gradually with a pretty good push to the summit, then descends steeply over the finally mile and a half. The trail itself isn’t as established which gives it a very rustic adventurous feel as you hike the Blood Mountain ridge line. The second half of the hike loops back on the AT giving you a chance to run into AT through hikers. Not too difficult would definitely recommend.

This trail is perfect for a first hike, or to warm up for longer hikes. I did this trail while it was raining pretty heavily, and it was still very enjoyable. The hike is fairly easy throughout, but there are some spots can be treacherous, especially if you want to get closer to some of the waterfalls along the way to the end. The final waterfall at the end is truly amazing and much bigger than pictures make it seem. I hiked with a group that ranged from first-timers to seasoned veterans and everyone enjoyed the trail.

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

$4 to park, so make sure you have cash or check. Great easy hike! The falls are beautiful but I can see this trail getting crowded in nice weather. Took my Shepard, great trail for dogs & from what I saw, easy for kids.

Great hike with great views. Trail was a little hard to see in places but well worth it!

Took the kids and dogs last weekend. Great trail. Will definitely be going back.

Should be higher than moderate

Great hike! I wouldn’t rate it as difficult...amazing views!

Beautiful view of waterfalls. A quick hike about a half mile to top of falls. The terrain is pretty steep and has lots of rocks and roots. So, even though it’s a quick hike it would be easy to twist an ankle if not careful. We tend to go off trail at times and that’s how we got to the very top of the falls ( there is a trail for this also). There is a lookout area near the falls so, you are able to look up at them and at the river flowing from them.

Always a nice hike. Beautiful falls very easy to visit.

West loop today and it was great. The view on the back side is incredible to walk. No traffic and pure tranquility.

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

Great hike in the winter when the leaves are off the trees and even better after a good rain when the water is up. The rock quarry is beautiful.

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!

Really nice trail. Fun elements of creeks and views and Vogel is really pretty. The climbs are serious but not unbearable. I took my boys aged 9 and 11 backpacking in the counterclockwise direction. Good reviews containing good details elsewhere here. This all trails gps trail location is off and wonky near Bear Hair trail. Not terrible but a wee bit disconcerting.

Beautiful easy hike, even with a bad ankle. Get there early as it tends to get a bit crowded with people & dogs. Trail runs along the stream, more than 1 pretty waterfall. Will definitely be back! No cell phone coverage, which kind of makes it even better!

Beautiful views. Good trail. Pretty streams

Tried to follow the Park map which was not detailed and confusing, so we got lost a couple times. Really pretty hike with a lot of views!

Nice hike for a group outing, but it was a long muddy drive for a pretty short hike.

The falls are beautiful! Our dog enjoyed it. The kids loved it. 5 year old walked down and up on her own. The 3 year old needed a lift back.

Anyone in reasonable shape can and should do this trail. Absolutely beautiful, varied woodlands, waterfalls, and gradual ascents and descents.
