    This short trail loops through a small stream’s surprisingly deep canyon, with lots of sheer cliffs and massive boulders along the way. A great short, easy hike with big payoff.

    There's a very good chance that the creek won't be running, as it only flows after a period of prolonged rain. However, I walk the trail on a pretty regular basis, and find it to be a pretty charming walk through a really beautiful forest regardless. One definite perk is that throughout the hike you can see cliffs rising through the trees on either side of the trail; these cliffs become more prominent as the gorge narrows. When the water is flowing, there is a really unique waterfall that tumbles into a deep cleft in the cliff to the right of the trail.

    Short, rugged, and very scenic trail that climbs alongside a wet-weather waterfall and skirts (sometimes almost perilously so) the tops of some tall cliffs. A great short hike to tackle after work or school.

    One of the best waterfalls in Georgia! The hike, though short, is incredibly scenic, as the trail winds through a forest of massive hemlocks. A really refreshing place to visit on a hot day.

    True wilderness experience in an intimate setting. The trailhead is remote and the trail itself, while easily discernible, is at times little more than a narrow path through rhododendron (especially near the base of the falls). It’s a great place to get away from the crowds and dunk your head beneath a really scenic waterfall.

    This trail offers a steep hike through a nice forest to a series of beautiful waterfalls. However, there is very limited space available for viewing these falls, and the crowds detract from any possibility of a wilderness experience. The falls are very popular and located just outside of the Highlands city limits. If you hike this trail and want a chance to enjoy the falls, get there very early.

    I wouldn’t go out of my way to hike this short trail, especially with all of the other waterfalls in the area. Still, it’s a worthwhile walk to a high-elevation, trickling waterfall if you’re staying in the park (which I recommend). The easy rating is confusing, even considering the trail’s length, as it is a sharp descent via steps with very little relief along the way, a kind of miniature version of the nearby and more rewarding hike to Hurricane Falls in Tallulah Gorge.

    Brian McCarty reviewed Hawk's Cave Trail

    3 months ago

    As with the other trails in the area, the Hawk’s Cave Trail features some really impressive rock formations and massive cliffs. Fun place to explore. I would suggest hiking it clockwise from the trailhead, as this will save the cliffs for the latter half of the trail. The cliffs will seem really imposing when you approach them from this direction.

    Lots of bang for your buck on this hike: two nice-sized and very different waterfalls, unique rock formations, and a really scenic section hugging cliffs above a creek.
