The East loop is nice, and the rock quarry is a good place to rest and take a lunch.
West loop is tough, but could use a little upkeep due to some overgrowth.
Both trials are good for training for more advanced hikes.

Beautiful and remote. Great to bring the dogs and kids. Easy hike and great creek access!

Peaceful and enjoyable hike.

Nice shaded trail. Will hike again!

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.

awesome trail. had a great time with my gf and dog.

Great hike in and out! Beautiful
quarry!!

It was a Sunday after some rainy days so the parking lot was pretty packed. But I wouldn't let that deter you. I don't really think it should be rated as difficult though. There were a lot of families and kids going the red trail so I took the yellow. It was ok. Only two inclines that got my heart rate up a little. I finished the yellow and took the orange. That one was nice. Gradual inclines and gradual declines. I saw only 2 people on the way out so it was much less trafficked than the yellow or red.

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.

Fun trail with wide paths.

no dogs allowed....?!

What a wonderful trail for a hike! This was my first time. Wonderful views and places to explore with water views, rocks to climb on, and bamboo area. Beautiful. It would have been tough to run if newer to trail running but great hike. Will definitely be back.

Easy simple and beautiful

Started on the right side behind the visitor's lodge and hiked up, then took the steps back down. Highly recommend going in the morning before it gets hot and people start flowing in! We were finished around noon (on a Sunday) and the steps were packed with people on our way down. Also as a previous review stated please do not take your dog on the steps! There are so many other ways up or down that are less painful for them.

Love this hike. The view is spectacular and the hazy mountain tops are a treat to the eyes!

Great trails for families. One of my favorite ones.

Cool hiking place. End of the red trail was a little challenging because of the steep hills. However, it really worth it. After taking a lunch break, we also went for the yellow trail. Less crowded and have an awesome bridge to take a good photo.

Pretty quiet. Good run. Steady mild ups or downs. Finished next to a nice small lake. Drinking fountain in parking lot. No restrooms. Good wildlife sounds.

I absolutely love this trail. There are plenty of different routes you can take - for those who prefer an easier walk, or something more challenging. It’s very scenic so there’s always something to look at. There is also a dog beach off to the left which is a lot of fun! It’s perfect when the water is low, but after it’s been raining, it’s a little too full to walk out anywhere. Just beware of the parking situation, as there is limited spots and it gets VERY busy on a nice weekend. (Also parking is $5 - cash only).

This is my favorite of all the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area Parks in metro ATL. It has some nice hills, beautiful views along the river, and a good amount of total trail mileage. The bamboo forest is always enchanting and try to find the cave off a side trail. The only downside is that parking can be difficult during busy times. And one way roads in some areas to the parking area so can be tricky. But it's usually not an issue and definitely worth a visit.

We completed this trail 7/23/18. Trail was cool and shaded all the way through. Incline was gradual for the most part until the end when it gets pretty steep. I thought the terrain was quite challenging for a moderate trail. You definitely need to watch your step in some places especially when wet and muddy. There are some great overnight camping areas along the stream. Hiking time for our group was 90 mins in and 90 mins out. We spent about 30 mins hanging around the waterfall at the end enjoying the nice cool water. So 3.5 hours total. Our group consisted of me and my wife, late 40s and our 15-year old daughter and friends ages 15-17. The teens really enjoyed the trail. Good fun overall.

Wonderful trail with a great view. Felt safe the entire time. Only saw a few people. Just make sure you follow the signs carefully or you might end up in a different parking lot.

Short trail with good waterfall. Was great for my 9 year old and 2 Jack Russell’s. Watch out for stinging insects, my son was stung twice by hornets.

Easy to moderate hike! Loved all the waterfalls. Trail was muddy in certain spots which can cause some slippage. Whole trail was 5 miles. Very cool places to stay overnight. Heavy traffic on this trail. We loved it!
