lovely hike with my 78 yr. old Mother and my Sister. The Falls are beautiful and we really enjoyed our time.

Well worth the hike!

Gorgeous waterfall!!! The trail itself was a little uneventful but easy. Watch for some roots. I do want to go back in the fall because I know the trail will be beautiful. We were just there on a hot, buggy, summer day. The Station Cove historic buildings are well maintained.

After a good rain, this waterfall is magnificent! Plenty of room to sit on the large rocks and admire and/or wade in the water. The hike itself is uneventful and pretty flat. (watch for roots.) Can't wait to see it in autumn!

great hike. had the little one with us, the falls were beautiful

Beautiful falls. We went after a lot of rainfall and it was really great. We had some trouble finding the trailhead at first. It is the dirt parking area just past the historic site sign to the left. We found it due to the amount of cars there on a Saturday. Worth the hike and we had a 4 year old and she loved it since she could play in the water at the falls.

Awesome hike to a beautiful fall!!

Perfect hike on a nice sunny day. Easy trail and the falls are well worth the hike. Bring a book and lunch. It’s wonderful

Beautiful fall! We hiked this trail during a heavy storm. The water was high at all crossings, 4 in total, in some places up to our knees. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Several trees down to climb over and some light mud slides in places. Some ups and downs but nothing unmanageable. Parking was excellent- we were able to drive and park our 25’ motor home with no problem. Several places around this paved parking area for picnics but I recommend carrying your food and eating at the fall. We hiked this trail with two kids and several places we had to walk closer together to keep them safely on the trail. This was an exciting hike and the falls were full force and spectacular when we arrived. The temperature is cool and the rocks are big and inviting- a nice place to relax and take in the power of Mother Nature. Due to the storms and conditions we saw only a handful of people on the trail- making it quiet and easy to meld into that place we long for when we hike...peace! ✌

Great hike. Some hills but not too difficult. A walking stick helps. There are 4 places where you have to cross the creek but there are rocks to step on. A couple of bridges. Nice, well marked trail, many areas with roots. The falls are pretty with rocks to sit on and enjoy lunch. Lots of dogs. We even saw 2 snakes.

This hike was worth it and had a pretty good view at the end. Went May 13th and there was definitely a bunch of trees and branches to dodge as you ascended up and down the path. I don't know if I'd do it again, maybe in the winter time when there wasn't so many trees brushing up against me (waist high at the tallest). Don't forget to wear long pants!
I'd call it somewhere between easy and moderate.

Fairly easy hike the falls were beautiful!

If you have trouble finding the start of the trail based on this apps directions like I did than drive past the cherry hill recreation center and about a mile or two up the road is a side road to the left named F708. Turn down that road and drive about 3 miles down the dirt road until you see the sign for a campground. Park in the campgrounds parking lot and walk down past the gate towards the campground and go to the very last campsite along the river. There will be a sign for the Chattooga River trail which is the trail you should follow. There will be an area where the trail splits into three directions, just keep following the green and white blazes along the trail until you see the small side trail that leads to the falls. It's not an official path so it is slightly dangerous to trek down but it will take you out right beside the falls which are breathtaking.

Beautiful hike. Easy with easy incline in a few parts. Falls we're gorgeous. Clean clear trail.

A nice home for a lazy day. Perfect for a toddler or an elderly hike. Sorry and easy. Nice for a first date and a picnic

This was a beautiful and diverse hike. My GPS said it was 3 miles, and it wasn't too difficult. This was a wonderful hike for dogs since a stream ran alongside the trail for a bit. There were a couple of spots where the trail crossed these streams, so just be aware of that.

well marked and great for kids. ups and downs but nothing too bad. waterfall was wonderful! we brought a blanket and sat and had lunch.

Great hike with family

Beautiful day for a hike yesterday. gorgeous trail, well marked and mostly clear. The is up and down a little but not too strenuous. Watch for

So close to home! Always enjoy the trail and the beautiful falls!

Loved it. Was perfect for my 2 year old, dog, and myself. We had quiet a few companions that we ran into but everyone was friendly. The falls is absolutely beautiful. We took our shoes off and splashed in for a few before heading back.

Beautiful waterfall. If you do the complete 6 mile trail, I would definitely rate this trail as moderate. My tracker put it equivalent to climbing 88 flights of stairs and that doesn’t include declines. Trail is very clean. There are bathrooms at the parking lot which is very convenient.

Great hike...great falls. Perfect for a relaxing hike for the family!

Excellent well maintained trail that ends in a spectacular waterfall. It would be better if they made a loop out of the trail.

Beautiful waterfall! There are a few places that you have to cross the creek on rocks. Not a huge deal but something that would be better in warm weather. The falls were absolutely beautiful. The trail was clean and marked. We will definitely be headed to see them in the summer!
