Absolutely beautiful. Great little hike to an amazing waterfall.

Loved this hike, with beautiful waterfalls. There is a lot of climbing down tree roots and rocks so I would not recommend bringing small children, or doing this hike if you have any physical disability. But it is well worth the climb and there are great spots to have a picnic next to the falls!

This trail was pretty brutal and hard on the knees. I definitely recommend trekking poles. This trail seems to be a constant up and down with not much in between! That being said, it's a beautiful trail that offers some gorgeous views once you are on the ridge. The second half of it you go into a rhododendron type cove that's really beautiful and gives you some relief from the climbs. Be careful doing this after heavy rain. Some of the rocky areas are a little treacherous.

Tall waterfall in a small park. Trail follows the stream.

Great easy walk into the falls. Kids and I had a great time and the waterfall was awesome!

Easy hike! Nice “beach” area for hanging out. The falls are beautiful. Wasn’t sure about the primitive road going down to the trail head so I parked at the first pull off

We really enjoyed this hike on Nov 20. The bridge being out made the hike even more fun for me and my daughter. We crossed on the smaller fallen tree next to the bridge. Note: if you’re balance-challenged (or just don’t want to fall in 2 feet of water), be sure to grab one or two of the hiking sticks that people leave at the trailhead. They are really helpful to work your way across the log.

Probably the prettiest waterfall I have seen in northern Georgia or western North Carolina.

It was an absolute beautiful hike. My 3 year old daughter and I did it in about 3 hours but we spent a lot of time at the fall itself. Especially after she found a giant frog. It does get a little tough right at the end ( Elora names them the silly stairs.) but, you’re so close to falls it’s well worth the challenge. I only needed up carrying her about 100 feet of the trail. She’s a trooper!

we didn't make it to the falls, but it was still overall a good hike

Beautiful falls. The trail is well maintained and we really enjoyed that the rangers try to keep the trail as natural as possible while allowing foot traffic. Crossing the streams made the hike more interesting. Please take the time to look around the trail, you will see a number of tiny falls in the creek and a humongous tree. The streams are not deep at the crossings and there are steppingstones. The fall itself is breathtaking, pictures do not show the magnitude or majesty of this beauty!

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.

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.
