As falls go in GA this is an easy hike to a short creek falls with two camping sites on the creek. Certainly not to be compaired to a top ten in Ga. Good canopy for a cooler hike. From trail head to the falls is .8

Easy hike about .5 mile to the falls but we kept going for a little ways. Easy but pretty hike very much worth it if your ever in the area.

The BMTA volunteers did an amazing job on this Re-route! So clean and beautiful! It was so nice to be the only ones there! Peaceful and serene to just sit and listen to the sound of the water, birds and leaves blowing in the slight breeze! Thank you!

Nice hike. We combined it with Stanley Gap. The falls are great. Be careful if at the top, a young man slipped and fell when we were there. Several people at the falls, but that should be expected, especially in the summer.

Beautiful falls. Great for family photos. But can be quite crowded. Nice little hike. Can be steep in some sections but nothing too difficult.

Short but uphill hike to the falls. One bench about halfway up to rest. Path is well maintained. Falls are pretty but I thought they would be bigger. Lots of white rhododendrons in bloom first week in July.

Took the family. We went to the falls, then a bit up the Benton-Mackey for only a total of ~2 miles. Nice little hike. The falls was the best part.

Nice Falls and wasn’t too far up the trail. Trails were a little steep for me since my hip and knees were hurting but still a nice trail.

Fairly steep climb but the falls are close - totally worth it! The platform overlooking the falls is a great photo spot. The falls were a lot bigger than we expected. Great with kids!

Beautiful view of waterfalls. A quick hike about a half mile to top of falls. The terrain is pretty steep and has lots of rocks and roots. So, even though it’s a quick hike it would be easy to twist an ankle if not careful. We tend to go off trail at times and that’s how we got to the very top of the falls ( there is a trail for this also). There is a lookout area near the falls so, you are able to look up at them and at the river flowing from them.

The waterfalls were pretty but very crowded. After you reach the falls the hike leads to a small, random section of the BMT and then you just turn around and go back. I was hoping it would lead to another view.

Only hiked to the falls about a quarter mile in because my girlfriend and I forgot our hiking shoes. Very pretty, however, definitely not a “lightly trafficked” trail. Parking was completely full when we first arrived, had to drive past and circle back around to find a spot.

Beautiful, but very busy. We went with our GSD in the evening, in 20 degree weather, on a weekday. My boys and I thought we’d be the only ones there. We were very wrong! It’s a pretty easy hike and the waterfall is beautiful, even full of ice.

Great accessible hike. The falls are 0.3 miles from the trailhead. Can easily adapt to your fitness level and distance.

Falls are only about a quarter mile up the trail. We kept going to the top thinking it 'went somewhere ' but it just runs into another trail. Pretty but disappointing.

Nice trails but very busy! Well maintained but be prepared to hike up hill to get to what this trail is all about... The waterfall!

one of our 'go to' hikes. If just us and the kids, we'll hang out by the falls. If just me and the wife, we hike to the end and back.....love this hike but can get crowded.

Definitely not an easy trail because it is mostly uphill and has huge roots in the ground that you have to watch out for, but other than that this trail is quite, peaceful and definitely beautiful! The waterfall is mesmerizing 

Great trail for a short hike. The waterfall is a great reward.
