HikingGreat!

Great Spring day hike at Burnt Mountain. Only saw one couple on the trail and we started at 11:30. This hike was pretty strenuous and we are not in shape, but very doable. We felt great after our hike! Heading to Fainting Goat!

Hiking

Tough, but totally doable. I had to take a break a few times on the way back up, but the fall at the bottom was totally worth the climb.

Hiking

Very tough, challenging hike. I have hiked many miles on the AT in north Georgia and this loop was much harder than any climb along the AT. I hiked down the west side of the loop which is steep. The trail is washed out and eroded in sections with exposed rocks and roots which makes the you straddle the trail for a good bit of the way. Climbing out on the east side the trail is in better shape but still steep with no switchbacks. Intended to hike the loop twice but didn’t want to make the climb again.

HikingGreat!

The trail is well marked and there are 3 or 4 creek crossings. Not crowded for a Sunday afternoon. Great loop, a little slippery on the way down, and I appreciated my hiking poles (or walking stick) to help. Just be ready for a big climb on the return! Great workout.

Trail is very well marked. We were the only ones there on a wet and cold February day. Slippery if you do not have good tread on your shoes. You get a good workout up and down.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Kind of muddy on the way down, but a very nice view of the creek at the bottom. Does anyone know if camping here is ok? Id love to spend a night by the water.

RunningGreat!

Good cardio in and out with a rocky stream at the half way point. My dog and I loves this trail. Do wish people would learn to take their trash with them!

HikingGreat!

Great loop. Killer on the joints on the way down and killer on the quads on the way up. Parking is easy and it wasn’t crowded (I went on a holiday). It may get pretty slippery after a rain, but it wasn’t bad when I was there. There are a few places at the bottom along the creek to hang out, have a snack, and get in the water. There was even a camp fire pit if you’re into that. I’d do this one again!

Nice quiet walk in the woods near beautiful creek and waterfall. Some mud, but not too bad.

Good trail. Very nice creek at the bottom. There is even a Cherokee bent tree marking the trail (see the picture). Straight uphill on the way back.

Nice hike down to a creek and several cascades. Little bit of a hard hike back out but definitely manageable. Would do it again!

Was a great hike. High 50s, breezy & sunny. Downhill out and uphill back in. Definitely strenuous uphill but a good workout.

This is definitely a hard trail! But worth the work. Trail was covered with fallen leaves and hard to find footing at times. All down him at the beginning, makes no it all up hill at the end. Cascading water was beautiful at the bottom. Hard but worth it.

mostly woods views with a nice waterfall just off the trail. Descents were steep and a little slippery with the fall leaves covering the trail.
