Good hike, lots of stairs and a section right next to the highway, but beautiful lookouts and a very cool suspension bridge.

great trail to challenge your leg strengths. I am a beginner hiker and it was a bit hard. it was worth to see the view on top!

Hiked on a good weather weather Saturday and the trail was crowded. But the views and terrain were worth it. Was harder than I expected. A lot of elevation gain in 3 miles.

One of my favorites, to date! My only advice is to be sure to get the permit pass! Without the access it gives you, the trail wouldn’t be all that.

Love this trail. Our family has been up and down a couple of times and will be back. Views are great and trail is difficult enough to make it a great half day climb.

Easy day hike with cool views and nice waterfall. The airstrip offers some nice views if you hike out to the end. The trails are forest roads so doesn't offer much fun or challenge in terms of 'hiking'. You can also add in the Reasonover Creek Trail to make a longer loop.

Great swim spot. Love going behind the falls and sliding out on the rock.

One of the first amazing spots I went the first time I visited North Carolina. Now I live within hiking distance of all the falls in Dupont State Forest. Awesome trails for all ages and amazing waterfalls. The only downside is it does get very busy during the summer.

This is a great hike with an excellent reward at the top. Moderate, quick hike for such a beautiful view. We went counter-clockwise which was probably a little tougher with steeper climbs but that’s the way we like it.

Beautiful waterfalls and scenery along hike. Ok view at top.

Do the hike several times a month.
Great hike,magnificent view from the rock face.
One of my favorite hikes.

Great hike! Good trail running parts of it as well, especially on the descent. The view was beautiful, but wish there was a bit more to it. Recommend, though!

I love this hike. very scenic And moderate hiking conditions.

Getting a gorge pass and climbing the rock wall is amazing. Get past the stairs and definitely get a pass, it’s well worth it

We did Triple Falls, High Falls and Hooker Falls in that order. 3.5 miles.

Not as steep as I thought it was gonna be based on other people's reviews. Signage is good. Not quite as scenic as Pinnacle Mountain trail. I can't imagine how great this area looks when the fall colors are peaking...

Wouldn't rate this as "hard" but decent hike up with a nice view at the end.

It was amazzzzing! it was fairly long, taking us about 4 hours, including stopping along the way and at the top. lots of zigzags, and an upwards hike at almost every location on the trail, but the view is totally worth it! you're so high, and youre standing on a stone face overlooking miles and miles of mountains and trees, and it is really just breathtaking. really makes you feel in tune with nature!

Amazing hike. Not an easy one-but I loved it for that. If you are looking for a challenging hike-this will be the one. Loved this one.

Great trail for about 7-70 years of age - if in good shape. a few steep hills. but always wide trails.

Solid hike with a nice reward at the top. The view off the rock face was great. Pretty steady incline the whole way that is not hard. I hoofed it pretty quickly so I actually did feel it a bit the next day.

Overall a nice trip if you are looking for something in between leisurely and challenging that has a unique lookout at the top you will remember. Seemed like a great date hike or family hike.

I went on a beautiful fall day so there was a steady stream of people. Quite a few dogs (maybe 15 or so) making the hike up since the incline is reasonable and no real climbing needed. Almost all were on a leash although two were not - plus there was a sign for a lost dog. :( Sounds like a lot of dogs but over the course of 6 miles it wasnt really much.

Pleasant trail with great views. Clockwise was great!

Not really a hiking trail, but it would be great for families with small children. There are a lot of stairs to go down to the suspension bridge. Very touristy. There are much better trails nearby like Panther Creek.

moderate trail, pretty cool view from the bridge

Moderate hike. Round trip to the falls was about 1h 45m. Had to scramble over some boulders and roots, some of which were slick during our late-November hike. Totally impressive falls though, and well worth braving the cold!

Great trail for beginners! just get there early as this trail gets crowded.

Great workout on the way up, and the view is worth it!

This trail was more challenging than I expected it to be! I was naively assuming South Carolina mountains were probably all babies, but this trail is pretty steep pretty much the whole way up. There were plenty of steps that were quite a stretch for my short legs.

The view at the top is great, but I thought the scenic spot a few hundred yards before table rock itself actually had the prettiest views, so be sure not to brush it off just because you’re nearly to the end.

As other people have pointed out no bathrooms along the way and lots of people around the entire time, but with the amount you’ll sweat you probably won’t need a bathroom break.

Be sure to bring LOTS of water! I had 2 20oz bottles and I wished I had more. Also make sure to check in and out in the office before you start and leave.

There were a few spots that were a bit slippery with sand, so wear good shoes.

Great trail, and fairly easy with just a few steep parts. There are a lot of stairs but you can still see the waterfalls without going down the stairs, it’s just not quite as nice of a view.

When we were there we got to see kayakers take part of the triple falls, it was so cool!

Only reason it lost a star is the trail is not very well marked. Forks (and even 3 direction splits) weren’t always marked, the signs that were there often didn’t include distances, and there were very few signs along the trails. It is a short trail but it’s always safer when it’s well marked!

Nice
