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.

great hike and lots of civil war history

10.7 miles? Maybe around 16 according to mile marker signs

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.

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.

there are more bike trails than walking but I have fully explored all but two which are bike only paths. tons of great views and easy to navigate. my favorite park so far

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.

Early morning hike on the Monday after father's day. No other hikers the entire out and back. One of the overlooks is closed since a tree fell on it, doing significant damage. The other overlook is open and several spots where you can get down to the water.

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 out and back through and amazingly beautiful valley. Despite the damage to the upper observation deck by a fallen tree, the view of the two falls at the end was well worth it. The trail was well maintained and in excellent condition. The grade was surprisingly easy. We’d go again.

Easy simple and beautiful

Great hike. Beautiful falls. Will definitely go back once the upper deck is fixed

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.

The trail is actually 8.5 miles (Website), and challenging beginners. We missed the right turn on Duncan Ridge trail and made a right on a blue trail walking a mile in a half off trail to Bird Gap. We had to turnaround to get back on course. Loved the hike, I would do it again, but taking my time not to missed the right turn.

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.

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

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!

Perfectly shaded and cool, even in the hot summer months. The terrain changes quite a bit, so wear appropriately-treaded shoes, not flippy floppys.

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.

Easy, simple, and absolutely lovely

Excellent hike along the river. You pass several swimming holes. Great for families!

Get there early to avoid crowds

Great hike with waterfalls along the way. The main waterfall is near the end. The whole hike is worth it if you climb the cliff and see what’s behind the waterfall inside of the cliff. There are additional waterfalls that you can see from the top of the rocks- it’s a very difficult climb but worth it. Also- climb down to the waterfalls along the trail. You’ll get soaked, but they’re worth it.

Great hike for newbies like myself. I would consider it easy to moderate due to the gradual incline but rough terrain. The trail follows a stream the entire way which allows for beautiful views of several small cascading falls and areas to cool off. The view of the cliffs are amazing especially for someone like myself from Florida.

Okay hike. Through the woods, along a little stream, but nothing special. Falls not that easy to see because they're in a crevice.
