Very easy hike to the waterfall. The only thing you have to worry about is your footing because there are a lot of exposed roots and rocks along the way.

Such a great trail! Waterfalls all along the path. Very easy hike, a lot of shade, and of course tons of beauty! I️ would recommend this path to anyone that was looking for a nice hike!

Perfect hike to hang out and chill at the falls! Dog friendly and not super crowded. it was pleasant and the light was really pretty on all the colorful leaves. Great hike with the pup and a coworker!

This was a beautiful hike!!! Lots of pretty views of the river and mini falls on the way to the main falls. Even though it was overcast and cool, it was still an amazing hike. The leaves were gorgeous. Not much elevation change so an easy hike.

beautiful, easy to get to the falls, we go several times a year.

I have had the good fortune to spend a decent amount of time in North Georgia, and Hemlock Falls is hands-down my favorite hike. It's super easy and pretty short. The falls at the end of the trail are really pretty, but there are equally pretty spots all along the way. I can't wait to go back and spend more time on this sweet little trail.

Wonderful trails, very well maintained. Beautiful falls and fun swimming pools. Everyone we met was friendly even the dogs!!! There were many kids there, all ages.
On the way out, we were told we just missed a rattlesnake! Thank God it was on the way out or I would have missed a wonderful hike!

Awesome trail! Good for all skill levels with perfect views of the rapids and waterfalls along the way. As with any trails in north Georgia, look out for snakes.

Great trail!! Lots of places to jump in the river. Shaded to avoid the heat and a wonderful rest spot at the end with the waterfall. Kids loved it, aged 5-12.

Great little trail. You can can hear and see waterfalls and streams the entire hike. Very beautiful and relaxing, not strenuous at all. There is a spot at end where you can swim or just float around and enjoy the waterfall.
