Good for a day outside with kids. Hike is very easy and short.

Did this trail on a windy and rainy day-just went slower but was still a good manageable trail. Definitely follow the posted trail signs. Lots of options to make it a short or long loop. Beautiful scenery.

Found this to be a fairly easy hike through the woods with a waterfall, river and covered bridge as the highlights. I went on a Sunday morning and it wasn’t too busy, crossed paths with a few dog walkers and joggers. Missed having blazes to follow but they do have signs on posts at all intersections and path well groomed so no chance of getting lost. I would walk here again.

Love this short trail. Rarely see anyone. Good climbing. Good downhill. Not well marked. Nice river views. Picnic table at the top. Boardwalk first half mile. Hike or trail run

Hiking, Beautiful place. Waterfall.

Great views and not too crowded on a Friday morning...definitely recommend!

Went here and I was blown away by the power that the falls have on you when you see them in person. The stairs are a challenge but they are worth it!

Walked down the trail then up the steps, both had amazing views!

Great trail that starts by the river on a boardwalk bordered by beautiful hemlocks. Be Careful though!! Some planks are missing from fallen trees that broke through. Boardwalk ends at small falls and blue blazes mark the Interpretive Trailhead. The trail is well-marked and easy to follow. There are a few moderate elevation gains but most of trail should be rated easy. A little under a mile is actually true hiking trail that goes through woodland bottoms and ridge lines that have nicely flowing springs. It ends as you summit a small hill. There is a nice little picnic area with a memorial stone. Mount Oglethorpe and Potts Mountain can be seen when canopy has fallen late fall thru early spring. The trail turns to gravel from this point on until about 500 feet when you reach the boardwalk. After the small hill, there is another cleared summit, from here with no leaves on hardwoods, you can see several peaks including Black Mountain, Springer Mtn, et al. The woods trail picks up again on the descent to the boardwalk and then it back to the parking lot. Very enjoyable and just the right length for a short hike with kids or dog.

Beautiful views on the way up and from the top!

Too crowded for me. There were people everywhere. I like to have a little peace and quiet. The view was nice at the top. Unless you are just trying to get miles in, I would not do entire loop. I liked hiking from Bettis-Tribble Rd. Entrance. Did not like hike from Spot Rd.

Easy short hike, kind of crowded especially at the top. The view is beautiful though! Overall a nice hike.

It is very challenging but I felt like Jesus wanted to meet me here so I did even if I was scared that the stone is slippery because it was pouring on my drive to the location. Anyway I just kept hiking up like a penguin by using the outer edge of my foot to support each step. I didn’t slip and the rain cloud started to be swept away and I got a chance to see the sun while it was slowly setting. You have almost a 360 view at the very top. Coming down a solid white line is steeper, it needs more faith, trust and persistence. The breaking yellow line would still be slippery if it rained so still be careful.

Great hike! Perfect for a 7 year old. Very busy on Long Creek Falls trail but three Forks was just us. Beautiful scenery and great diversity.

Nice easy trail. A little crowded. Bummer that no pets allowed. Should be no kids under 7 allowed, lol. View is pretty nice as well.

Hunting season hours Sept to January - giving this 3 stars - neither good nor bad since we weren’t able to access this time. Easy to access to trail head, with good amount of parking.

This was our first trail hiked!!! Awesome, memorable experience. Gorgeous views the whole hike up. The trail got pretty steep towards the end but not too difficult. My 9 and 7 year old did this hike very easily. Would definitely recommend for family vacationing.

Loved it amazing. I went November with beautiful coloring of leaves and walked the trail then down the steps .

Great way to start the day, made it up in time to watch the sunrise.

Quite the workout during the last 1/4 way up. Busy trail with lots of people, but trail is wide most of the way so you aren't likely to be stuck behind someone very long. Beautiful Vista views from the top.

Nice trail system. Would like the trails to be marked better as it was a bit confusing.

love this hike, have run it many times

Absolutely beautiful trail!

We went the wrong way up by mistake but it was a good choice. Trail is not easy but was fun. The view from the top is a great panoramic one. The view of the falls from the bottom of the steps was the best. Great day.

Took the AT approach trail to walk the steps up. The steps are not for the faint of heart. The views of the falls on the way up are great. And at the top is awesome. Took the East trail on the way back down. Very rocky at the top. Watch your footing so as to not roll an ankle. The trail itself is nice, wooded.

Great place to spend the day ,picnic ,hike ,camp ,kids playground .
