Very intense hike for someone carrying a toddler in a carrier. Nice leg workout. Took our dog and he did just great. Several places where Trail led straight up or straight down; sometimes having steps for easier navigation. Lots of people at waterfall which is in the middle of the trail loop. One negative was that people were smoking around the waterfall and the smoke filled the falls.

Nice waterfall. Worth the drive if you include Short Springs hike also

I really like this hike. I've driven from Nashville twice to do this hike (after the jack daniels tour LOL) and the waterfall is amazing. the hike is short but going down (& up) the "stairs" is super treacherous. the first time I went it was clean and well maintained, but when I last went (mid July) it was trashed with litter! I picked up a bags worth on the way up, all I could carry, but there was more! It's really a shame to see! The drive and the stairs are worth it, amazing wide and heavy flowing waterfall and a cold stream for a dip! Perfect!

Really enjoyable hike. The waterfall and vegetation is amazing when the water is flowing. I seen an abundance of mushrooms as well! Just an amazing little spot.

Loved Machine falls ! Easy hike to the falls. Stopped in at Route 55 BBQ for some great food afterwards.
