Nice, short hike with the dog. Moderate enough to get a good sweat started but not too hard to slow you down. Very pretty.

Very beautiful sets of falls. However mileage is closer to 1.45 in and 1.45 out to the road trailhead for a total of about 2.9 to 3 miles RT. Whoever posted this and said 1.1 in and 1.1 out must have been at the Rabun Beach campground trailhead. Trail is easy/moderate to the second set of falls and then moderate/difficult to the final and third set of falls. Overall worth the 3 miles.

Took about an hour there and back taking our time. Good hiking that not too hard but gives you a workout.

Really cool trail. Very scenic drive in. Beautiful lake. Very nice falls. We got to the 1st falls and thought we were done. Make sure to double back up to the left. Angel falls is actually at the end of the trail. Probably one of my favorite falls so far. Very scenic trail. Would recommend checking this one out.

My favorite hike so far. The drive up is cool. Lots of beautiful homes. The trail is through a very green forest. I was waiting for elves and fairies to start jumping out at us! The waterfall at the end empties into a clear, shallow pool that’s not scary if you have kids or dogs. We went early and were completely alone. On the way back we ran into quite a few people. So, go before lunchtime if you like to be alone. Afternoon if you like to have people around.

This trail was perfect for our family! We had a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a 19 month old in a carrier! Very Shady with a well maintained trail that followed the water! Plenty of fun bridges to walk across and places to stop and play in the water. It took us about 40 minutes to walk in and 40 minutes to walk our , but that is with kids in tow :) we will definitely do this trail again!

Great hike, we only saw a couple others on the trail so it was nice. My 10 year old enjoyed it, she played in the creek along the way to cool off. Go all the way up to see angel falls!

Nice, short hike with great waterfall at the end. There are two falls so make sure you go to the end. Easy to moderate.

Great little easy hike, parking was weird but could be “user” “google maps” navigation error... Traveled from Atlanta there on Wednesday and had the whole falls to myself to do some photography... Very beautiful!

Angel Falls and the smaller Panther Falls are the hidden gems of this area. Very close to the crowded Minnehaha Falls but with much less traffic. A very easy trail to follow along the creek.

Beautiful trail! Just when we thought it ended we continued past the first fall and took it all the way up! Loved the organic feel to this location. We were able to squeeze this in after visiting Tallulah and Minnehaha.

We did this trail a few in late November and really enjoyed it. Our kids are 6 and 8 and have grown up hiking and this trail was perfect for them. The waterfalls are pretty. Our dog really enjoyed the water too

Nice easy walk with good, strong falls. Ideal trail to spend an hour or two with family in the woods. Easy access as well

Beautiful trail with two significant falls. Trail is well travelled with some steep parts and exposed tree roots. Rhododendrons and mountain laurels everywhere.

Fun easy trail. Two campgrounds close by. Small parking area on the side of the road for about 5-6 cars. There's also parking just past the trail head at the campground. Not sure if they charge a day use fee or not.

We liked it! shady, rustic, along the water, easyish but had fun terrain with roots, rocks, bridges and mud, but nothing difficult, lightly travelled and a decent waterfall at the end.

Well kept trail. Beautiful as you trek along the stream up to the falls. Don't be fooled when you get to Panther Falls...continue on to get to Angel Falls. I thought Panther Falls was prettier.

Easy trail that takes you through 2 waterfalls. Nothing special, stopped by after hiking Tallulah and visiting Minnehaha. Came during summer time, so the falls were both pretty dry. I did see a few snakes while climbing the falls.

The trail to the lower falls is pretty much as described by AllTrails, except that is was sort of busy on the Saturday we went. Eye-of-the-beholder notwithstanding, we had it on fair authority that the uppermost falls were not significant, so we were content to pass on the day we went. YMMV
