Really pretty area. Lots of people on the weekend. I bet it would be great on a week day in the morning on a crisp fall day!

Great hike. Would be even more beautiful in the fall and winter. Offers a wonderful mix of lake, woods, and streams.

Very well marked. Don't miss the Jocassee Visitor Center at the trail head. Valuable maps and brochures on this feature rich area.

My family and I took this trail and thought it was great. It Has frequent rest stops with trash cans along the way, along with some overlooking scenic views and a stair case down to the river. It gets hot so I recommend bringing water.

It was a nice hike in the woods with a side tour climbing down to the rocks. Go early because it gets hot.

The details are wrong, the waterfall is not on this trail. The waterfall is a different trail and adds about 3 miles to your hike. This trail is beautiful and worth the trip.
