Nice hike to a beautiful waterfall. Enjoyed the scenery on the way also. This is not an easy hike, though. It should be rated as moderate.

Amazing and beautiful views. The trail is well marked. It will be a challenging hike for some as you must go up and down hills. It's rewarding and would love to do it again in the fall.

One of personal favorite waterfalls in Georgia. I am totally in love with this beauty. A fabulous hike to the fall a great workout of about 7.5 mile. I have visited here quite a few times and ready to be there anytime again.

A good workout hike uptill the top of the cliff. The waterfall is gorgeous and accessible. I went in the fall and the water was icecold but it was fun to be able to reach to it. Had a great time.

Had a wonderful hike today with my wife. The falls are so worth the trip. But as others have said boots not shoes. I'm also looking to go back and enjoy some camping along the trail.

Loved the rocks, the lake, and all the tree coverage. Would do again. Definitely

Wonderful! The trail has it's ups and downs, but it's really beautiful all along the way. God's handiwork all around you. And then you get to the waterfall. Breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL. Stunning. Words do not do it justice. Do yourself a favor and seek out this lovely trail!

Great trail. The waterfall is beautiful. I'll be hiking it again soon.

nice trail. it was challenging in a good way. no waterfall, not even a trickle

Great trail, awesome hike, amazing waterfall.

LOVE this trail!

Great hike, make sure to bring lots of water if done in the hotter months. Amazing views from the ridges. Would recommend doing the hike in the fall during the color change.

I did both loops. Late morning/early afternoon hike, and very few people on trail. There were a few places along the trail where tree branches fell due to recent storms. Forest views with beautiful overlook of lake. Lots of elevation changes.

enjoyable hike to the falls. the trail to the top is a workout.

awesome trail with great views. not to strenuous until the last climb to the waterfall. worth the climb.

Recent rains have made some areas along the trail a little muddy but they have made the falls pretty fine. I've hiked this several times but the volume of water going over the falls is the best I have ever seen.
This is very good hike if you don't mind crossing the stream in the water due to the damaged bridge. That was really fun once you get in and try it.

great trail that takes a few hours. some difficult bits but mostly is a good hike. has some great views along the way and plenty of wildlife.

Awesome trail! So many beautiful viewpoints while hiking along the top of the ridges! Technical hike which makes it interesting and fun!

I highly recommend doing this hike early in the morning because it does get busy. The bridge is broken but, if you feel comfortable doing so, the creek is pretty easy to cross and not very deep (I'm 5'1 and it came up to my knees at the deepest). You see two beautiful falls and can swim in one, blue hole falls. If you're planning on swimming, make sure it hasn't rained for a few days because the current is really strong and the fall is unswimmable if it just rained.

Eagle Nest lookout is awesome. We parked at eagles nest, ascended on the logging road then took trail up to lookout. Descending we used the Pine Trail (something like that) which is a much nicer hiking trail along the ridge. This trail takes you back to the high way at Manitou Trail where you can walk the 400m back to the car. When I do it again I will use the Manitou Trail for sure!

Very nice hike to the waterfall and back out the same way, which is 7 miles and is what most people do, as the part past the waterfall to the other trail head is very steep and difficult. The 7 mile hike that we did to the waterfall and back is along the creek and very fun, with ups and downs and boulders and such to climb around. You can swim at the pool in front of the waterfall, and many people set up hammocks or tents and hang around for the day. Lovely.

Be cautious after rain, muddy steps on steep inclines make this trail dangerous

Easy, well marked trail to hike.
This waterfall is my absolute favorite. To say that it’s stunningly beautiful is a complete understatement! It’s truly magical!
100% worth the drive and the hike to get to it!

Nice, peaceful trail. Saw a small bear by the parking lot.

Arrived at the trailhead by 8:15 on a Friday morning. I came after several days of heavy rain and definitely had to navigate some muddy spots. But it was well worth it. The river was roaring and the falls were awesome. I didn’t come across anybody until on my way back out. Finished and back to the car by 10:15. I thought this a relatively easy hike until the end where you do see more elevation gain. For anybody hesitant to go on this trail you do come across several falls early on and could definitely turn around sooner and would still be satisfied. Followed it up with a trip to Dukes Creek Falls and then some wine tasting in Helen. Lovely North GA day trip.

Nice hike but more crowded than I would like on a weekend. Mid June and the rhodedendrons were just starting to bloom at the start of the trail. Almost no blooms yet higher up. The mushroom and fungus diversity was spectacular.

Easy hike with great reward payoff at the end. Falls were awesome and definitely highly recommended! I prefer this set of falls over Station Cove honestly. I was there all by myself in the AM! Dog did great too!

Great fun for the whole family.

We enjoyed this hike and it provided a great workout. It was steep in spots, and rocky, but offered two lovely lookout areas that were well worth the climb. Pleasantly surprised with this trail. Hardly any bugs (August).

Fav trail!
