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

This was a nice afternoon hike. we did this with a five and six year old. The decent to the falls could be a bit tricky for little legs, but they did great. The payoff is definitely sitting at the bottom of falls. It is beautiful. Probably even better after a rain.

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.

What a nice hike. Starts off very easy through several fields, cross the creek several times and into the woods. Approximately 0.2-0.3 miles before you arrive at the waterfalls, trees are down making the trail harder to follow. Overgrown and rocky at the end. However, very worth it for the pictures of the falls. Would not recommend for any one younger than 10. Recommend long pants and waterproof hiking boots as well as reading others descriptions here. It was an easy hike with a beautiful waterfall.

Awesome hike to a beautiful fall!!

Raining hike today. This hike was amazing. First time actually following the trail on All Trails App. It was great. Walked through several open fields. You have to go through 4 plus creek crossing. Wear pants ... there is a leaf all through trail that made my legs itch so bad. Kept washing my legs in creek. Climb boulders to get to base of falls. A really fun hike.

If you hike this trail I would suggest wearing pants and boots, you cross about 6 creeks (yes tennis shoes will get wet) and towards the end near the waterfall it is VERY grown up with plants that make your legs itch and trees have fallen you have to climb over! The waterfall was WELL worth it but be careful to not get lost on the trail, use this app and it will lead you straight there. When you get to a creek towards the end, you can follow down the side of the bank to get to the waterfall. Much easier than going through a small part in the woods climbing over trees and over grown plants. There is not much elevation to this trail so if you feel like you have started to increase drastically in elevation, you are going the wrong way. We loved it and would definitely do it again, but with pants and boots on next time!

This was a nice hike down and back up a gently sloping well marked trail. I enjoyed it but do not foresee myself coming back often. Next time: Tamassee Knob !

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.

hike itself is ok, but the falls at the end, sitting in the middle of a jungle-like forest make it amazing! Did it early on a weekday and didn't see anyone else!

be careful. trail not marked well and several times the path goes through the creek.

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.

It was a great hiking trail once we figured out where to begin. Really had to follow the map from here to see where to go in the beginning. You had to walk through some fields that were grown up pretty high to get to the trails but once you were on the trail, it was easy to follow. Wear boots because you have to cross a lot of creeks and climb up pretty steep rocks at the end. The waterfall at the end was absolutely beautiful!

I loved this trail & hope to return soon. It was easy to follow once I figured out where to begin: the closed road branching off the parking area where the bridge is. I wore waders & shorts & now have legs covered in poison ivy bumps - really wish I had on pants. I saw a momma bear & her cub's tracks. the falls were beyond breathtaking - I felt like I was in another world. I will post pictures.

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

Loved this trail! Lots and lots of trees down and kind of confusing to follow due to their not being any guidance besides the app! Wear rain boots! You go through maybe 4 or 5 creeks!

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!
