This was a beautiful hike I took with my 16 year old son and 50 lb dog. We went in the morning so we could finish the trail well before sunset, so started about 9 am. I am so happy I consulted all trails before going, because some other reviewers mentioned that they didn’t bring enough water. I took 108 oz split between our backpacks, and we drank it all. Other reviews mention a section which has large jagged rocks, and that it would be easy to twist an ankle on those. I second that. Hiking boots strongly encouraged.

Our hike was last year, and I can’t wait to hit this trail again in the fall.

Nice quick trail

As falls go in GA this is an easy hike to a short creek falls with two camping sites on the creek. Certainly not to be compaired to a top ten in Ga. Good canopy for a cooler hike. From trail head to the falls is .8

Great hike. Start on the left side and you’ll end the hike with good views of the bluff. We set up a hammock at the end and ate a snack.

easy and enjoyable

Excellent trail!!! The Lacefields do a fabulous job well marked and clean

very cool and gorgeous trail. very difficult at times. Definitely a quad and glute workout with all the steps. waterfalls are amazing

Great trail but it's closed past Sycamore Falls which was only around 2 miles in. Looking forward to going back after the gas line has been repaired.

Easy hike about .5 mile to the falls but we kept going for a little ways. Easy but pretty hike very much worth it if your ever in the area.

Lots of wildlife seen a lot of deer. Really liked the top

The BMTA volunteers did an amazing job on this Re-route! So clean and beautiful! It was so nice to be the only ones there! Peaceful and serene to just sit and listen to the sound of the water, birds and leaves blowing in the slight breeze! Thank you!

Part of trail unknowingly closed "until September" after I read it supposedly opened around August 1st. Arrived at 5pm from 4 hrs travelling, and a citation issued on the windshield of our car the following morning for camping d/t campsite being closed, but too far in to hike out after arrival. Embarrassed to be escorted out (on our way out) by Park Rangers (eldest with 3 months experience after telling us we would be cleared of citation for not actually having been 'found camping.') Beautiful sights, however. Do your research more in depth than I did, apparently, before staying here or hiking past 5pm.

Nice hike. We combined it with Stanley Gap. The falls are great. Be careful if at the top, a young man slipped and fell when we were there. Several people at the falls, but that should be expected, especially in the summer.

Most of the trail is meh, the falls are great. Be sure to keep going back until you see the large drop off that’s impassable.

Good nice hike. Parts of trail are almost covered and some trees have fallen but still nice along the stream. Perfect for a early summer morning walk.

Simple walking path with a small creek that crosses it. I liked the many mushrooms/toadstools along the trail, but maybe much better as a biking trail.

Beautiful narrow trail, a spur off the AT leading to Whitley Shelter. A little overgrown, but well worth the hike. After leaving the AT we didn’t see another soul other than two campers at the shelter. Nice waterhole about .3 mile behind the shelter.

This app says "out and back" with the miles. Does that mean TOTAL hike miles, or it is ONE WAY hike miles?

I walk this trail often and love it. On average my hiking app shows it to be 1.7 miles. There is enough elevation that it gives me a decent workout. If you want more distance, hike it twice. It is a rocky trail so I do caution anyone to keep your eyes downward to prevent a fall. The trail has a solid canopy too, so no sunscreen is required.

Beautiful falls. Great for family photos. But can be quite crowded. Nice little hike. Can be steep in some sections but nothing too difficult.

awesome trails, awesome scenery, and an overall awesome hike. Some parts are more challenging but what waits at the end of all of these trails is well worth it. Will be going back.

Actually backpacked this last summer. We brought our dog and I would recommend staying on the top of the ridge to ravens point if you’re hiking from sycamore falls. Hiking into the valley is quite treacherous with all the boulders, especially for a dog.

This was a fun hike, lots of centipedes all over the place though

Short but uphill hike to the falls. One bench about halfway up to rest. Path is well maintained. Falls are pretty but I thought they would be bigger. Lots of white rhododendrons in bloom first week in July.

Took the family. We went to the falls, then a bit up the Benton-Mackey for only a total of ~2 miles. Nice little hike. The falls was the best part.

Is there water at the water fall this time of year? July?

Great trail, but difficult for older and beginners. Enjoyed it!!!
