One of those trails that you just have to see in person. It’s a long hike so do take some protein and water but well worth it! Low traffic so we enjoyed the trail to ourselves mostly.

Bike trails in total make a beautiful meandering training workout. Wonderful in Autumn

Loved it!

Did this trail twice. First time was a mistake. I entered the horse trail, not the hiking trail. The horse trail is more than twice as long as the hiking trail. I had to turn around at one point just to make sure I got out of there before dark, because I didn't bring a lot of gear. When I finally went back and did the hiking trail, it was the hike of a lifetime. Its amazing. There are a few little campsites along the way and a very old small cemetery. One gravestone is in good condition and they apparently died in 1860. 10/10 would recommend.

I went after tons of rain, and I’m so glad I did! It was super muddy from the cemetery to the falls, so I would definitely recommend at least one trekking pole.

Once you get to the creek and see the falls and think you can’t go any further, put on some water shoes, cross the river, and keep going up.

Took my 26 pound dog and he loved it.

What a nice surprise!

My GPS clocked 8.25 miles and I went all the way to the top of the falls.

Amazing trail! Used it as a shakedown hike to test my pack weight and gear. Downed trees made the path difficult to find and navigate in several areas. Had to use my AllTrail map to stay on/return to trail. Love this app. Several reliable water sources along the way. Since this was just a shakedown hike I only did a small part and stayed just one night. Lots of great camping sites with fire rings. Planning to return and do a two night hike from Adams Gap to Cheaha then return on Cave Creek.

unseasonably warm temps in January made for unexpectedly active trail traffic today! recent rains and fallen limbs made trail blazes difficult to see, bring your GEO map and compass or extra battery for your phone to use All Trails GPS.
HIGHLY recommend this trail, I can't wait to go back! 10 am start at Adam's Gap, 3.45 pm finish at Cheaha Trailhead.

Fun day trip! Great scenery. Listened to other reviews and climbed the ledge at the pool and found the beginning of the falls. Well worth the climb.

We love this trail. Very muddy and slippery on the last mile to the falls tough climb back out. But overall an awesome hike we plan to return when dry
My GPS. Recorded 8 miles round trip and took 6 hrs spent about an hour at the falls.

Easy hike to the falls, a little steep going down to the bottom of the falls. I will be going back

A really great trail. The falls are tiered! Follow the creek past parker falls and take a left at the fork. You will find a fifty foot water fall!

God out did himself with this little treasure of land and water!!!!

SO COOL. The key is to keep going once you get to the little waterfall bit and rocky pool at the end, which is like the head of the little river you follow for the middle third. With a FUN rock scramble, you can climb up to see the crashing waterfall!! Must do that!!

Otherwise, decent hike. Only “hard” because it’s muddy and rocky for that middle third, and the ascent (return hike) is pretty long. Pretty area. We went in winter and are pretty active folks.

Great hike!
You can do it!!
Take your time! Beautiful!!

Absolutely gorgeous waterfalls. Trail isn’t marked at all. My son and I are novice hikers. We got a little turned around on the way back and it took us a while to locate the trail. Even with all of that, I consider this a must see/do. Beautiful!

Great hike.

A few trees to step over. Trail was well worn but nice walk. Waterfalls we flowing very nice. Able to climb to bottom one with trekking poles and back up to bottom of first one. Worth the trip if you are in the area

awesome area, well maintained trails and a ton of cute activity areas for kids. Not too bad of a walk up to the overlook, but a little muddy today! bring some good boots:)

Really great trail in the winter after the rain. During the summer the creek dries up. I would suggest taking the Tennesee trailhead as it is easier and offers better scenery. It can still be tough but well worth the trek!

Nice hike. Plenty of camping spots. Springs coming right out of the hills. Not sure why it’s rated as hard? Maybe people get hurt.
Be careful! It’s slippery in spots.

started on the Tennessee side today. the trek down is marked really well until you reach Alabama. be aware that the trail markers change.

Drought was the best

Awesome hike! Very challenging, but the payoff is fantastic.

Gorgeous falls!

Cool waterfall and small canyon at the end. The first part of the trail isn't too exciting, but the fall colors are pretty. Took us 3.5 hours including 20-30 min at the falls

Beautiful vistas and great trails.

Fun hike but out and back was closer to 8.5 miles, not 6.6....Very muddy towards the end. Cemetery is creepy too.

Definitely difficult terrain, especially the last portion near the river. Fallen leaves cover slippery mud, tree roots and rocks. I wish I had a walking stick! Trail isn’t marked well in some areas. However, it might be our age? We were passed a few times by younger hikers that were almost skipping down the trail!

Great hike if you want to wonder why the hell you aren’t back to your car yet for a couple miles. Rocks near the bottom are super slick and could make for a sore buttocks so be careful. Decent views. Easy in, hard out.
