great trail if you are with small kids.
multiple attractions around and you can always drop by to Helen for a burger and beer afterwards.
if you look for serious hikes this trail is not for you.

Super easy and quick. Beautiful falls!

Great trail! Slight inclines, but nothing too difficult. This was my puppy’s first hike with hopefully more to come.

It is beautiful! You have to drive around a quaint little lake for a little while to get to it but it’s a very short walk. The drive combine with the walk made it even better for me. It’s a little steep at first, I wouldn’t recommend taking your grandma or someone in a wheelchair but it was gorgeous! I don’t feel like the photos do it justice. We’ll be back.

Beautiful trail, some wonderful trail work has been done, thank you to whomever! There has been a lot of rain the last week in the falls were absolutely beautiful!

I hike this trail at least once or twice a month since it’s so close to my house. Other than the stairs to get to the waterfall it’s fairly easy.

This was absolutely amazing. Mid November rain had the cascade rolling. Such a magical area. The drive along the lake was beautiful as well.

not really a hard hike but you can see the beauty of nature

This is my new favorite - had a little bit of everything - Hiked this Sunday, Nov 11, 2018, So many things to do. I believe the waterfall is one of the best I have seen in the Ga Mountains. Weather was perfect: sunny and 40 degrees. Wore jacket on way down and stowed it on the way up. Met some really nice people. As others said the bridge was destroyed but not hard using the fallen trees to cross. There is a sign about the route being closed due to the bridge. Please ignore that and enjoy yourself. Last point, if your vehicle does not have the clearance needed to cross a small creek you will need to walk a pretty good distance to start this hike. Not sure how far - someone else would know the distance. I drove the hike in a 2015 F250 Lariat - plenty of clearance.

Really pretty trail. The autumn leaves truly made this hike seem yellow. A few easy stream crossings, I was glad to have a hiking pole though. The waterfall at the end is beautiful. About a 200 foot elevation gain on the way back from the falls. The hike from the falls back to the car took us 35 minutes.

I really liked these falls. Easy to get to, the path is steep- beautiful

So much fun and absolutely beautiful

Gorgeous views of the river and waterfall. The perfect hike for a beginner that wants a challenge. We were pressed for time so we only hiked to the waterfall viewing platform and came back, but we crossed a cool bridge, a lot of rocky terrain, and the views of the creek alongside the trail were beautiful! Plus, we visited in early November so the fall foliage was picture-perfect!

Super fun hike if you enjoy waterfalls! Lots of stairs but worth it once you get to the viewing platform

This trail is paved the entire way, so it's not a very "natural" experience. I guess it makes it more accessible to all ages, so better for families. There are other beautiful falls in the area that you can take a real hike to and that don't charge admission.

Short Jaunt to the viewing platform...nice waterfall. We did not go down below the falls, looks rather difficult if conditions are wet.

Not too long, not too short to Yellow Branch Falls with a few creek crossings. Easy hike on the way to the falls, and easy/moderate on way back (due to elevation gain from climbing back out of the valley). There are flats along the way to recover. I hiked it on a cooler/dry day with my 22 month old son strapped to me in our Osprey carrier and there were a few ares where I had some slightly elevated breathing and some burning quads, but not too bad. Pack a lunch because there is ample space near the falls to relax, enjoy the view, and refuel. I also passed about 5 other hiking groups along the way (on a Wednesday afternoon) so it does see some traffic. The trails is also well maintained.

This was a beautiful hike! I definitely would not rate this as hard - more like moderate. The only difficult part was heading back up from the river. The waterfall and river are totally worth this short steep section. Otherwise very easy trail that makes for a nice afternoon hike!

This hike can fool you. It is relatively easy on the way down to the falls. As other reviewer‘s have mentioned, there is a sharp left at the “end”of the trail (at the river) to get to the falls. The falls are spectacular. The tricky part is on the way back, it is mostly uphill. The hike it’s not difficult but the return trip will exert some energy. Well worth the time.

Great trail you can walk across logs where the bridge is closed.

Cool waterfalls! Would recommend a car that can go through some water otherwise you’ll have to park further back and hike 1 mile uphill to get to the trailhead

Great hike with well marked trail. Waterfall is beautiful.

I love this trail but it is not for everyone .. first fall you must walk across tree to get there and the. Rest climb along tree roots and mountainsides .. I saw a lot of disappointed people that couldn’t get to the falls :(

Great hike. Bridge was down so need to cross on small log or get wet. Well worth the hike.
