Want to Do Map

Beautiful falls all along the trail. The traffic got a little heavy on our way out. If you want to see the falls at the end of the trail you’ll have to climb rocks to see it. Not for kids or people with knee problems. My mom was somewhat disappointed because she couldn’t see the falls at the end.

You can access this trail from main overlook/parking area, top parking area, and 2 of the campsites. Beautiful rock formations to climb on, and views of course!

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

This is a very easy but relaxing trail.

Beautiful hike. A little challenging but definitely worth it!

Did this trail in March 2018 and it’s a great day hike. The first 2/3 of the Trail ascends up Blood Mountain gradually with a pretty good push to the summit, then descends steeply over the finally mile and a half. The trail itself isn’t as established which gives it a very rustic adventurous feel as you hike the Blood Mountain ridge line. The second half of the hike loops back on the AT giving you a chance to run into AT through hikers. Not too difficult would definitely recommend.

This trail is perfect for a first hike, or to warm up for longer hikes. I did this trail while it was raining pretty heavily, and it was still very enjoyable. The hike is fairly easy throughout, but there are some spots can be treacherous, especially if you want to get closer to some of the waterfalls along the way to the end. The final waterfall at the end is truly amazing and much bigger than pictures make it seem. I hiked with a group that ranged from first-timers to seasoned veterans and everyone enjoyed the trail.

Took the kids and dogs last weekend. Great trail. Will definitely be going back.

The trail was semi wet from all the rain recently but still very navigable. I was passing through on a road trip and loved that this trail was right off the highway to stop for lunch. I would call this trail easy. The elevation gain was gradual. Very well marked!!! Great views, especially for being right next to the highway, I was more than pleased. Better hike than I could have anticipated and great views to sit and eat lunch!

Nice super easy hike!

Beautiful easy hike, even with a bad ankle. Get there early as it tends to get a bit crowded with people & dogs. Trail runs along the stream, more than 1 pretty waterfall. Will definitely be back! No cell phone coverage, which kind of makes it even better!

Loved it.

Beautiful views. Good trail. Pretty streams


Love this place, easy trail and an amazing view if you make it all the way to the top!

Definitely beautiful views if you have good visibility that day. Free parking with lots of available spots. Lots of room when you get to the top. Not a hard trail at all, I would classify this as easy instead of moderate. This would be a great running trail.

Great, easy to follow trail. Water falls in multiple spots and lots of beautiful views and plants. The last leg to get to the waterfall between the cliffs is a little shaky but worth it!
Beware though, this trails gets BUSY, due to how gradual the climb and rewarding the end.

Beautiful this time of the year. Love all the moss covered rocks. Interesting how the scenery changes. Will go back.

Great trail. Both waterfalls on the entry trail are worth seeing. (Lots of steps to get down to the waterfalls) After coming back up the steps, you have to cross the canyon and walk along the far side of the canyon before the loop trail begins. The best pictures/views are from the far side. The loop trail is around 2 miles and is relatively flat. The path goes through the woods and runs along the other side of the mountain.

My dog, Rezin, and I hiked the loop today, and I couldn’t be happier with how awesome it was. Weather was a little cloudy so it gave some nice shade. Great water access for majority of the hike. I didn’t need to get out my dog bowl, he was sipping from small creeks and puddles pretty much every time we took a break. The view from the peak of blood Mountain is out of this world! Decent amount of people on the trail, but all friendly and majority had dogs but they were friendly as well. Great place to also camp, so I plan on doing that next time! Overall, it was an absolutely beautiful and stunning hike!

One of my favorite hikes I have done! Definitely would rate it hard

Easy and short and the river is close and loud so it clears your head. cool facts on the area with the stone fort, ancient people's and the mill

easy hiking. great scenery. i can imagine this trail getting congested so maybe best to plan around peek times

Awesome, fun trail with gorgeous scenery!! The creek going along the trail makes for some really peaceful hiking. Definitely a must!!

Not difficult at all. We had a hiker for whom this was her first hike ever. She found this to be easy

Great view close to town
