Hike/walk. The incline is absolutely killer but it’s a great workout and the views are gorgeous, on the way up and very rewarding at the top. Recommended!!

The wife and I were on vacation in blue ridge, so we decided to find a waterfall close by. Long curvy roads but a nice a waterfall.

Tough hike for me but well worth the views at the top. Will do this one again.

It was a nice trail, A little strenuous in places, but not too bad. At the beginning there was a lot of trash, but further in it the trail was pretty and tranquil. We were the only one's there.

This trail has a good mix of ups and downs. Great for exercise

This was such a fun trail with multiple beautiful overlooks at the top. Most people turn left onto the AT when they make it to the intersection and are met with a steep incline and tons of rocks, but if you curve to the right and continue onto Byron Reese, you will have a slow and much more doable incline. We did this and thought the trail was fairly easy because of it. Wear good shoes and socks! The trail is so rocky.

This trail is so easy to follow. Loki and I enjoyed our morning walk .

not a bad trail but not well marked. If you cross the creek you are on the other side which is 4+ mile loop.

Great hike! Definitely need hiking boots as there was a ton of rocks, roots, etc. But, that’s why we are outside, right? There wasn’t much traffic on the trail. Felt safe as a solo female hiker, but of course i was prepared! The last .5 of the Mountainside Trail will get ya...uphill. Get your head around it. Great workout! Will be back.

Just an fyi...there are a couple of big trees that came down right where the yellow and red trails meet. Someone with some saws or something need to cut a new path. Couldnt get to the red trail.

had Friday morning off work and had it to myself. it was hilly and challenging but all hills are runbable

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

Hike killed me but great view

Steady climb all the way up. Some great views at the top. Fun trail.

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.

Tough hike but well worth it for the panoramic views! Will go again for sure.

This trail seems better suited to cyclists than hikers. It's very narrow in parts and I was constantly stopping to let cyclists pass. The trail was not very well marked in places. Also not much to see but the very occasional peek of lanier through the trees.

Loved this trail. Good workout and quiet in the early morning. Be careful of loose rocks on the trail. Wear appropriate footwear. Lots of fire ants so don't plan to stop for a trail snack.

The Blood Mountain portion was moderate and challenging. Great to see the lodge and the mountains all around. We came down Freeman’s loop - that part was brutal. So many rocks and roots to navigate, but we made it and will do it again. Be sure to bring more water than you think you’ll drink!

We tried to take Freeman trail but some guys said we were off trail so we turned around and took the AT trail. Lots of rocks to walk over and climb. Difficult trail but doable. It’s so worth the view at the top. I’ll be doing this again.

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.

Great day for a hike, weather was 73 degrees and didnt really see anyone until I got to the top. Views are incredible.

The AT portion is fairly open but Freeman portion somewhat overgrown. Lots of rocks and fallen trees to climb over on Freeman.

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.

Really beautiful-both the trail and the falls. This is also suitable for most people-less than two round trip-so you can pretty much bring anyone. We carried a couple of light backpacks and picnicked at the falls.

Lot's of fun for an experienced hiker, made the mistake of taking my girlfriend on this trail as her first hike. Needless to say she was in over her head.

Pretty view of the falls. One of the more crowded hikes along the Chatahoochee

Nice trail- very flat except for a small hill at the very end. Lots of trail runners- with the flatness of the trail I see the appeal for trail running.
