This is a great trail if you're looking for adventure and up for a challenge. Ignore the moderate rating, though. If you go beyond the first fall, it's very difficult. I went with the kids (4 & 10) and they made it, but there were some hairy moments. Gorgeous falls.

Good easy trail to the falls. The road is a challenge if you don't have four wheel drive. Otherwise park at the main road.

Amazing hike this morning with my girlfriend, like someone else said make that right on gravel road before bridge and drive to dead end and park then Trail is right there, yellow blazes..sketchy Trail but the falls were Amazing! We're only ones there so it was very serene and beautiful! Wish I lived closer so I could go more often..deff worth checking out

Wonderful hike. I drove in from North GA and didn't regret it. The hike itself was fairly easy. Only about 1.5m in on a old dirt road. I went straight for the falls. They were fantastic!

love it out here but if you go anywhere near the upper falls camping area... campers apparently do not use the dig, drop and bury rule while relieving themselves in the woods. watch your step!

The directions will take you to a road. If you don't have a truck or a real SUV with ground clearance then park at the mouth of the road and walk. At the end of the road is a parking lot and trail head. The trail is easy and rewards you with a gorgeous swimming hole, so bring your swimsuit.

nice hike lots of time beside the river

Walked to lick log and pigpen falls from Nicholson ford then backtracked north on the Chattooga River trail to Big Bend falls. Beautiful walk. The trip to lick log and pigpen falls from the parking area was an easy hike in and out. The last few yards down to the river and the base of the falls were steep and treacherous. From Nicholson ford to the river and back is only right at 2 miles but the walk a little further north or south on the Chattooga River trail is worth the effort.

Trail stops at the top of the falls. Then just scramble down the exposed roots to the bottom. The creek to the upper falls must be forded unless your balance is good. Then again, a good rain might wash that log away.

Hit this trail on the way back from big bend falls. Easy, clean and short. Perfect for beginners and kids.
