it's not a long hike but it's a pretty good fall, ill return to it shortly to see what's below, looks like there are some more falls 1/2 a mile or so .

It's a easy trail but the trail that goes to the bottom of the falls is pretty steep. Overall it would be a great short trip for a family with kids.

I hiked to the lower falls. It was great because I had it all to myself. Be careful coming down and going back up. Happy hiking!

A beautiful drive-in on forestry service roads in a short but slightly challenging hike to a nice waterfall. I bet in the spring when the rains come the waterfall is very intense. I would love to come here again.

not much water coming over the falls even though it rained earlier. the last part of the trail isn't marked very well but it's not that hard to follow. getting to the bottom is like a lot of the falls you have to find your way but it's still a beautiful Falls.

Not much water going to have a "falls", perhaps spring. Even if it had water, I didn't think the trail was nice at all. The journey is the best part, and other parts of Bankhead has much nicer scenery to offer on the trail than this.

No water now. Puts you at top of falls. Last 10% of trail is totally unmarked. A couple of trees down. I did not go to the bottom of the falls. It may have been more picturesque. Hard to get to trail on forest road and washed out. Did miss the trailhead and had to turn around. Thank goodness for GPS and Alltrails. O

August... no water. Trail not bad, just easy to miss because trail head isn't marked. Found where falls should. Was being guarded by a rattlesnake, though.

The trail is not marked. We missed it going in and if another car had not been parked there on the way out, we would have missed it then also. No parking area, just the side of the road. The waterfall was completely dried up even though it had rained the previous four days. The trail was easy except for climbing over two fallen trees. The slopes to the bottom of the waterfall are steep and slick.

Great trail and scenery. Water was down and it was still wonderful. Oh, the trail isn’t marked and it’s hard to find.

It’s a fun little trail with pretty views. The slopes to the bottom of the waterfall is steep so be ready for that. My 7 year old enjoyed it, and even took the k9! Oh, important note Apple Maps will not take you to the correct spot!!!

No parking area, just the side of the road. Looked more like a dirt bike trail at first glance. Real easy trail for all ages. Beautiful waterfall at the end.

This was a long drive to a short hike with a really BIG payoff at the end. There’s not much to the hike in but the waterfall basin at the end is totally worth it. There is a long gravel road to get to the trailhead. Google maps left us about a mile short and on the wrong road. But Waze got us within 100 yards. There is really no place to park. About 40 yards before the trailhead is a pull off “road,” but it will hold a couple of cars. Then walk down to the trailhead. We are a full time RV family of 9 (#findyourcrazyjourney) that does a lot of hiking. Today we had me, the wife, our 8, 9, 11, and 11 year old special needs twins, plus two small dogs. No one had any trouble with the hike but the trail ends at the top of the falls and it is a little bit of a slippery scramble down to the pool. But once your there....wow. We went in April the day after a good rain, so the falls were beautiful. Not much poison ivy, but we did find three ticks on the dogs when we checked before getting into the car, so be sure to check.
