Great spot off the road. Came after some big rains in the area, so the falls were flowing big time.

Great trail. It was really muddy on a lot of the trail, as it had just rained the day before. Prepare to get dirty. The waterfalls were beautiful.

I went up North Old Mac and camped on a boulder at the Panther Gap Rockhouse because the actual rockhouse was flooded with running water from recent rains. It would be pretty cool in dry weather. The forest sounded pretty dead, no birds, squirrels, etc., except for the constant sound of running water from the bountiful springs, creeks and branches. I took South Old Mac back to the parking area. The total mileage is around 7+ miles. The elevation gain/loss is close to 4,000 feet. With a 22 pound backpack it's a solid "moderate" hike. I only saw 3 other hikers and one pileated woodpecker on the
entire loop. The trail turns to more like a "goat path" for a good bit of the hike, and due to the heavy rains was pretty slippery most of the way. There are no overlooks unless you go to the firetower.

We enjoyed this water fall the best!

We went the first week in November and it was amazing! The leaves were fantastic.

This trail offers one "or two" of the best views around. The trail itsself needs work.

Beautiful! Wear a good pair of hiking boots or shoes to get to the bottom and back as it’s slippery. Sadly no pictures documenting my sister falling on her a**, but this occurred and was the result of poor footwear ;)

Alternatively, the hike to the top is very short and flat.

Great trail, narrow at times, but very diverse in terrain. December visited.

Awesome trail. Could use some maintenance, but marked and easy to follow. Went in December and were the only ones on the trail!

Awesome trail all the way around. We went a day after a heavy rain, so the waterfalls were at full force. Beautiful trail, and an easy trail too.

I hiked this with my dog yesterday and went in the reverse direction from what was described above (I started at the visitor center). That direction is more challenging with some steeper climbs that are difficult rather than moderate. I was disappointed that there were not any scenic view points, but it was a gray sky day so I probably wasn't missing much. There were plenty of stream crossings so I didn't need to carry water for my dog. The hike was good exercise at least.

Very easy to get to top of Falls. Wish we’d had time to hike to the bottom. Will definitely be coming back for this!

Great trail. Fairly challenging. Started on Old Mac North to Chimney Rock for 11.2 miles. Only complaint was that Chimney Rock was poorly marked in some areas.

Nice hike the overlooking is an easy trail, going to base of the falls is rocky and like rock climbing, but good if you are geared for hiking and using hiking boots , it will give you stability as rocks are uneven and leaves are slippery. It is breathtaking and worth it hike.

This took me almost 3 hours total and I was carrying a baby. The blue trail up was no joke. East overlook is beautiful!!! West overlook is meh. The red trail/ridge walk is a nice relief after climbing the blue trail. The white trail is a lot of fun with all the rocks- I bet younger kids really enjoy this part! Most of the people we saw were on the white trail, but it is definitely busier here than I would’ve imagined it to be (they even have an overflow parking area).

I pulled 5 ticks off my dog total (4 at once at the end of the blue trail climb)- I didn’t use her spray because I thought it was cold enough- just be careful. The ones she had were red + black and all black.
