Nice trail, well maintained. Either way you loop is nice. A trail for a stroll, not very difficult.

Small hike but really nice!!

Great downhill trail with lots of technical features and many creek crossings. Some crossings required carrying the bike. Brush growth with hinder riding this summer without some trail maintenance.

I really liked this trail, It has waterfalls and plenty of overlooks. We had the entire trail to ourselves except for around the falls.

We had an amazing hike today out of Vogel State Park to Blood Mountain. Hiking up, we only saw one other hiker, who guided us when we weren't sure which path to take. We saw this same hiker at the top, along with about 10 thru hikers. The trail was well marked and seemed to have some new signs for Blood Mountain. It was definitely a strenuous uphill the whole way out! Well worth the hike, great views from the top and a good workout!

Truly my moderate trail. Some parts are narrow but I personally like it like that. Will definitely be back.

The trail was a nice, quick, easy hike. the waterfall was very pretty and not too far up the trail.

one of my favorite day hikes. definitely a summer trail though. be prepared to get wet as there are many creek crossings.

Great hike! definitely one of my favorite waterfalls in GA, there should be trail markers to tell you where to go, I almost lost track of the trail twice. Still had a great time though! Only saw a couple the whole 5 hours I was there, it was amazing!

Since we have had so much rain for the passed month or so the falls were gorgeous!! Nice hike for the whole family. I baby wear so the last little leg being uphill got to me. lol. We all had fun.

Nice Falls and wasn’t too far up the trail. Trails were a little steep for me since my hip and knees were hurting but still a nice trail.

I tried desperately also to find this trail. The map took me to a hunt club. I checked with the clay pigeon folks across the street from where the entrance “should have been” and no luck. I’d love to actually find it.

Great all-around hike. On the return from Vogel, be sure to keep a close eye out for the right turn onto the Duncan Ridge Trail. The sign can' be easily missed when you're SOBO on the AT.

Great day...i agree with the other reviews....would be very difficult to get lost. Follow James steps verbatim

This is a pleasant easy walk culminating in a nice waterfall. Take the low trail back to stay near the brook.

Breathtakingly beautiful. There’s even stairs!

Just got home from completing this one. Due to weather, we decided to do the river crossings first. Which meant we had to face an uphill penitentiary branch trail the next day. That was fairly strenuous.

Very dissapointed in this trail. Trecking up mostly on a gravel road was very difficult for me and the view was lacking due to trees and haze due to pollen and Controlled fires happening in the area. the Tower was locked so no view.

Fantastic hike! Challenging. One of the better hikes in Georgia. The Vista is spectacular words nor photographs give it justice. The abundance of water was fantastic for the dogs. I especially enjoyed the pool of cold water which rejuvenated my joints. I expected to see more wildlife. Great hike for solitude. Recommend packing a lunch for this one although Clayton is close enough and has an abundance of restaurants.

If you hike the whole loop its a really decent hilly hike. Its not a very scenic or pretty hike but its good for exercise. I tracked 5 miles on the fitbit. I hiked it counterclockwise so the waterfall was at the tail end. Be prepared to have wet socks and shoes tho... there are 2 shin/knee deep creek crossings with no logs or stones to step on. The waterfall is quite pretty and easily accessed.

Great Mornings walk all nice and quiet !
best cafe stop in the area watching the water cascade at the falls ! x

Every weekend I do a hike in North Georgia, and this one immediately shot to number one. The early spring wildflowers were in such rare form that I initially thought that the trail had been planted. As stated by others, this trail has something for everyone. The day I hiked this trail, the valleys were filled with fog, and the cascades and waterfalls were gushing. Sun rays were piercing through the early Spring canopy casting cool shadows and ephemeral rainbows. Save one quiet photographer and two small groups of overnighters, amazingly I had the entire area to myself. The trail is narrow, as in no more than necessary for single file walking, which means that disturbance along the path is at a minimum. The route is extremely well marked, and all water crossing of any size are either bridged or well stabilized with stone. The Pinnacle Knob side trail is blazed with green, and immediately cuts a swath through a rhododendron thicket (which is unusual and a little sad but at the same time very unusual in its almost tropical-ness), then skirts back and forth as it works its way gradually to the top. The reward for this effort is a broad vista of large, mountainous expanses of [thankfully] untouched forest land. The USGS benchmark on the top lends a real old school legitimacy to the summit. Timing it right, this would be the perfect private hammock camping site. Glad I suggested it to everyone...

Cold and windy, hard freeze this morning 29 degrees and fog on the summit.

Enjoyable short trail. Beautiful area

great view of the top. make sure to park where the closed gate for the 1st camping ground for the lake is. trail is pretty much all uphill. btw it's a 1hr drive on a mountain country non paved road from the main road, watch out city folks lol

One of my favorite walks. Has something for everyone. This trail passes two very picturesque waterfalls on the way to an easy to reach summit with fantastic views to the North and over Clayton. Parking is easy and next to a picnic area which is great for the "apres-walk" treat.

Great time of year to see the forest. We took the loop to the right at the fork and would recommend it this way. There is a nice lunch spot when you cross Flatt creek.

Long drive for a short hike. HOWEVER- this is a beautiful area, offers a nice short hike for kiddos and camping along the way.

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy this hike. You can see through the forest of naked trees and soak in the true contour of the mountain ravines, ridges and rises. We took the lollipop loop to the right and would recommend that direction. There are quite a few creek and stream crossings that make lovely spots for lunch or just to sit, reflect and inhale. After the hike we kept driving down towards the Toccoa River and enjoyed a refreshing brew and apps at Toccoa Riverside. A day well lived.
