Great easy trail alongside Moccasin Creek with several waterfalls!

Enjoyed the quietness and solitude of the hike. I think they have rerouted the trail due to rain wash and there are quite a few roots and rocks to contend with, so watch your footing. Would have to carry small children most of the way.

One of my favorite low key, meditative hikes in GA. Never busy, nice and shady for hot days, you walk right along the river full of rapids and calming noise. Great for older dogs that don’t do well in heat.

Loved it. Great trail to take non hikers on. Not hard. But there is a second waterfall I haven’t been to yet. My friend said it’s about 2 miles past.

Great in-and-out hike to a beautiful waterfall! Wooden bench about halfway to enjoy the view. Well shaded and good for dogs and kids. We set up camp overnight and it was pretty ideal.

This is a nice family type hike but be aware this trail can be quite muddy and slick after a rain. Heavy traffic during tourist season.

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!

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.

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.
