This was a great hike! It was relatively easy, though there were a couple small sections you would want to watch your footing on. There are several small falls along the way as well. The very last section (less than a tenth of a mile) was relatively challenging to get to the falls, but totally worth it. We took of our boots and climbed around and walked through the water. It was super cool. There were a lot of campsites along the trail too which we were told are free to use. They were really close though and the trail was highly trafficked, so if you want somewhere private this is not the place to camp. Overall a great hike though.

Most popular dayhike in the north Georgia mountains, and for good reason. Out-and-back trail leads to unique waterfall that falls through the middle of a cliff. Passes several warm-up waterfalls in Dodds Creek before reaching the main attraction. Fairly easy until you get to Raven Cliff, but the last bit is steep and rocky. Plan a weekday or winter visit to reduce the crowds.

This was such a great hike! Went with my husband and 7 year old. Had such a wonderful time, beautiful scenery, follows the river which you can hear at all times. Great places to stop off and have a snack, or eat lunch, and dip your toes in the cool rushing water. If we lived closer we could come back again and again. Went all the way to the top, above the falls :) so peaceful and beautiful.
