A fun day hike! Challenging enough to make you feel good when you reach the car but easy enough that my 12 year old was able to do it as his first ever hike. Variety of terrain and great views. Definitely would do it again!

I really liked it. But since it had rained the day before, crossing the creeks was extremely difficult. The water got up to my waist in some parts. 9 total so you go through creeks 18 times. IMPORTANT!! So I got there at 6:30, but the park was closed and I didn’t see a sign with the hours of operation. I ended up going down the road to Burgess Falls. There was a state park officer, he told me Windows Cliff OPENS AT 8:00 am!!!! Plan accordingly!

A very short but steep climb down rocks to get to the incredible waterfalls and swimming hole. We had a large group with dogs and kids so they had to stay behind. My 10 year old niece was able to climb the rocks easily. We did jump in but the water was freezing! We had to help each other get out of the water. I would not recommend for dogs or young kids.

My wife and I loved this place, Cane Creek falls was gorgeous!!

Great trail! Brought my Chacos and they were perfect for crossing the river right before the waterfall. Keep climbing for a bonus waterfall. Love this hike.

Went yesterday. As everyone says, the hike in is easy- back, not so much! But worth it because it’s beautiful right now. Saw wild roses, geraniums, irises, trillium, phlox, violets, larkspur, and catch-fly (bright red). We caught a glimpse of a pileated woodpecker. The water is flowing well. We brought water shoes to cross the creek and were glad because we had dry shoes to hike out. Bring plenty of water!

Breathtaking the first time you see it. One of my all time favorite hikes and waterfall.

Beautiful waterfall and very short hike, well worth a visit.

Beautiful area!!!❤

Beautiful trail! Did it in the middle of the week in February and it was actually very trafficked. The falls was very pretty!

Absolutely beautiful!!! The hike out was definitely difficult but well worth it!! Took my 9 year old son, and we hike at least 2x/month, and he said this was his favorite hike so far. I would not recommend this hike for beginners.

We went after a good bit of rain, so the creek crossing (you step on rocks to cross, right before the waterfalls) was close to impossible without getting water in your boots. It was absolutely worth it to have wet shoes, because the water features were awesome. So carry extra socks. Also, due the the uphill climb on the return trip, allow much more time to return.

Great hike the creek crossings were more like river crossing though would probably hike again if I could bring my dog but until then probably won't

Loved the trail, it is difficult towards the end. Well worth it!

Great short trail. Beautiful waterfall views! Some of the viewings were closed due to flood damage today, but it was still worth visiting. Trail maintenance was excellent.

This is a great day hike spot. The top does appear to be a challenge but you quickly discover great large footholds that make it rather simple to climb. It is a lot of fun and the view is so worth it!

Love this trail completely

有几处瀑布,非常壮观。

Most beautiful hike ever! Not very well marked so we got off trail a little but the scenery was beyond worth it!!! My favorite place to go!

Nice easy trail, mostly follows an old road. Nice views of the Big South Fork River. Great for little ones too. Take your time and explore the area.

Fun trail but as the reviews before me said, it is a valley so the hard part is in the second half of the hike. I think it's a pretty good trail for a range of hikers - if you're an avid hiker it's not a challenge but it's still nice and if you're newish it'll be difficult but manageable. There are definitely prettier waterfalls in this part of the country that take less effort to get to but if you want to get some exercise in it's worth checking out.

The trail is pretty easy to follow and completely empty when I went. I started from the Alabama side though so I'm not sure how it is from the Tennessee side. You hike down through some woods, across a creek, past a small cemetery, and end up in a natural amphitheater. The trail just sorta ends and you can explore the area. I sorta wish I had brought some sandals when I got to the end b/c most of the rocks were submerged so I ended up getting my feet and shoes wet trying to get closer to the waterfall (and hiking in wet shoes is never fun). Do be careful while exploring the area though. I slipped and fell on the wet rocks and got bruised pretty bad.

Beautiful. Completely worth the time and effort!

Trail can be a little intimidating but the view is totally worth it.

Parts of the trail are currently closed.

My garmin tracked this at 4.8 in and 4.8 out. Not sure where AllTrails get 6.6 in/out. Not accurate. It’s well over 8+ Miles. Also, If you are a avid hiker, I would disagree with the rating of Hard. Out is up, but if you are in pretty good shape this is not a hard day hike. Beautiful!

Beautiful area! A lot of waterfalls to see!

Very well maintained hiking/walking trail that offers spectacular views of waterfalls. We like it because it is a quick walk in very pretty setting.

Great hikes on well maintained trails; phenomenal view of the waterfalls.Cant wait to return!

To top of fall is a short walk, to get to bottom of falls takes a little rock scrambling and coming back up is fun!

This is a steep decent down to beautiful waterfalls. Also continued on to Boardwalk Falls. Loved the trail and Falls. Neat metal staircase you descend beside bluff. Rocky, rooty, a Little muddy. Much fun!!
