I would say this is a moderate hike, not difficult. We just completed this trail with four eight year olds. What a fantastic payoff!

Nice easy walk to the water falls. Beautiful little beach and you can even swim in the lake.

Nice day hike... viewing deck is small but luckily there were few people on the trail. Note that as you walk from the parking area to the top of the 1st rise the trail continues to the left. The trail that goes to the right leads down the steep incline to the lake and is very over grown.

Several nice but well used camping areas along the trail that are either creek side or along the wider Chattooga. Sites are roomy and offer space for tents. We hammock camp so some sites had trees too far apart but we had no trouble finding a good spot. The hike in is very easy with a down slope. Hiking out with your gear is still easy but you are hiking out and slightly up. There are three really lovely waterfalls. The first, Pigpen is smaller and has a great wading pool. Safe enough even for younger children. Upper Licklog is viewed from the trail and is scenic. Lower Licklog can be accessed by a steep side trail but is worth the trip down and up. Early June is stunning because the rhododendrons are in bloom. Trail can be narrow and roots slick.

good hike and beautiful waterfall but bad with ticks..30 in 2 hours.

Super fun! Worth the drive. Finding it was a little difficult. The road leading to it is a small gravel road with only a tiny piece of cardboard to guide the way. It was worth the confusion though because it was awesome.

The best waterfall I've ever been to! However, we did run across a copperhead, so be careful!
