My first waterfalls hike and it was wonderful.

Beautiful falls! Nice, moderate walk until the stone stairs down, but worth it. My dog loved it! I walked past the falls but couldn't find the loop trail, so ended up going back the way I came. Bring extra water, hiking poles, and take breaks climbing back up the steps.

A beautiful hike along the river. The steps are pretty strait down about 450 ish feet. But definitely worth the hike. Beautiful waterfall.

Beautiful hike. It is closer to 8 miles and an uphill climb the whole way in. I would not recommend this hike for a family outing or an easy stroll. I would also rate it difficult. I did not see any waterfalls though, can someone tell me how to get to those?

DO NOT FOLLOW DIRECTIONS FROM THIS APP!!!!!! S Suther below has perfect directions in their review! THANK YOU!!!
The App directions take you to someone's driveway WAY off from where you should be!

The falls are beautiful. We took our 5 year old and he did great! Take some water shoes with you so you and the kid da can splash around at the foot of the falls!

One steep section but with good traction shoes you'll do fine. It's a beautiful place.

I wasn't able to do this trail because these directions are incorrect. They don't take you directly do a trailhead. I googled where the trail was and it ended up taking me to a private property with security who did not let me through. They told me to go to Sam's Gap on the AT and that I could get to big bald from there, but I never saw signs for it anywhere. I wouldn't use AllTrails for this particular route but there are others out there

Easy hike. Several places to stop along the trail to watch the rafters and kayakers.

Great easy hike with my parents. Just the right speed for them.

The trail was very grown over and the trailhead not marked. We had to walk down the creek to find the trail. The waterfall and cave was off the trail and you could not see through the brush. We had to backtrack and look for it. This trail is best done in the winter or early spring because of the dense vegetation. It was a easy hike and after finding the trailhead well marked with white blazes.

Easy trail with 1 creek crossing that can be rock -hopped unless alot of rain has fallen .A short uphill climbing part after u cross creek but nothing bad and is beautiful to see with snow or ice on the falls .Does tend to have low flow in summer months without adequate rainfall .

The waterfalls on this trail were truly gorgeous. I echo everyone's reviews on it being hard to find and encourage you to screen shot some of the more logistics-minded reviews to help you get where you want to be. There was a storm not long ago so the trail was a little rough with some fallen trees, but nothing we couldn't manage. Like some others, we couldn't locate the loop connecting trail, but it was still a perfect, secluded hike.

This location is often mistakenly referred to as `Starr Mountain'.

These bluffs are found on the southeastern edge of Chestnut Mountain and offer spectacular views overlooking the Hiwassee River.

The hike is very steep and strenuous.
