beautiful trail and waterfall. The directions don't take you to the location, you need to drive a mile or 2 further. And the place to start is not clearly marked. We were lucky to have found hikers to Point us to the right direction. Also, more like 4 miles not 7. We were in and out in 2 hrs.

Great trail. Beautiful and water all the way to the Falls. There were rocks and roots but not difficult. Wore boots up and hiking sandals back down. Great for dogs, families and anyone in decent physical shape. DON’T park at the horse stable in my opinion. Drive past the stable up to parking on the side of the gravel road at Clawhammer Cove Trailhead (for a bit longer hike) or a little farther up the road to Buckhorn Gap trail head. This turned out to be a 5 mile hike. Take the time at the base of the waterfall to hike up the left side so you can get under the waterfall!!!

Parked at Buckhorn Gap and just looped around that way. Nice falls and all the log bridges were alot of fun. Still a bit muddy. Probably best when we havent got much rain recently.

Great hike. Lots of log bridges - not my favorite. The falls are beautiful. Pay attention since there are smaller falls along the way. Also pay attention to the color coding on the trees there are several places to go the wrong way. We had s sunny but cool day. There was a lot of people out.

This a wonderful trek. Quite easy. Some uphill sections but the uphill is gradual and not too difficult. Beautiful Falls. Twin falls is breathtaking but throughout the hike there are plenty of smaller falls and “mini” falls as I call them. There are Multiple creek crossings but most have designated log bridges to cross. For a majority of your trek you will either be beside water or you’ll be able to hear it. It’s quite peaceful. Note: for the experienced or daring hikers, if you hike up the right side of the falls, you will be in awe of one of God’s beautiful creations. You can walk behind the falls. Make sure to wear proper hiking boots or trail shoes and be careful! This is a truly beautiful hike. I would highly recommend this trail. :)

We went last weekend and the weather was great. This ended up being a 10 mile hike because the road to get to the stables is closed. The hike was great, but there were several downed trees.

We parked at the stables and went in November. It was on the tail end of lead season and beautiful. Some of the reviews/directions are hard to follow on here. Take the main road and use the BUCKHORN GAP trail head. We missed this and ended up three miles uphill. Once we got on track it was pretty straight forward and the directions made sense. Just make sure to use the correct trail head.

Very pretty and quiet trail. Never figured out the loop. Hiked about 4.5 miles up the mountain to find the trail is a dead end. Whoops.

Pretty walk in the fall season. Walk is on a well maintained dirt/rock road. Look for the trail sign that will lead to the falls. We missed it and kept walking on the road. We heard the falls and realized we were not on the right path. Path to falls is a single wide trail.

The falls are beautiful and well worth the hike. Follow the AllTrails route closely, many opportunities to take a wrong turn. Got lost which added an extra mile. Went on a weekday and didn’t see a single person on the trail. Recommend doing the trail in reverse so the falls are near the end of the hike.

This is definitely a "moderate" hike but so worth it. Beautiful area. We went on a rainy day and had the trail to ourselves. The water was flowing from the beautiful waterfalls. This is on the Waterfall 100 Challenge and very deserving on it.Lots of great foot bridges to pass over and lots of great creek crossings.

Well worth the effort. Only a few other people on the trail and had the falls all to myself.

Favorite trail in pisgah! We hike this one every visit. Lots of little creek crossings and just a cool environment. Lightly traveled, we usually only come across just a few people. Dog loves it. We typically start from the Buckhorn Gap trailhead.

A nice little climb on the way up followed by some intense riding on the way down. Theres a pretty challenging portion with lots of roots, rocks, and sharp turns followed a much flowier portion next to a creek. I entered behind the stables and just kept making right turns until i made a loop.

Great hike today. Was a little confusing at times but we figured it out with Alltrails and a quick glance at a paper map. Maybe some local groups need to volunteer time to refine some of the signage?
