Super fun! Worth the drive. Finding it was a little difficult. The road leading to it is a small gravel road with only a tiny piece of cardboard to guide the way. It was worth the confusion though because it was awesome.

Loved it! Went with my wife and 10 year old son. As others have said, getting to the 2nd and 3rd falls are more challenging but worth the effort. The view of the 2nd waterfall was the best. We will do this trail again.

This is a great trail if you're looking for adventure and up for a challenge. Ignore the moderate rating, though. If you go beyond the first fall, it's very difficult. I went with the kids (4 & 10) and they made it, but there were some hairy moments. Gorgeous falls.

love it out here but if you go anywhere near the upper falls camping area... campers apparently do not use the dig, drop and bury rule while relieving themselves in the woods. watch your step!

Trail stops at the top of the falls. Then just scramble down the exposed roots to the bottom. The creek to the upper falls must be forded unless your balance is good. Then again, a good rain might wash that log away.

Waterfalls are gorgeous but this is not a trail, slippery and washed away in some areas, use caution when you go. The GPS does not take you to the correct location, once you get to the gravel road, make the first right you come to, there are no signs other than the one on the main road.

By far my favorite falls. Four awesome falls on one short trail. Trail can be very slick right after a rain.

7/2/16 Trail is very worn to the point that there's not a defined trail, only a bare hillside. Very popular place.

Fun hike in. Few challenging ledges you'll want to be careful on. Awesome views and a great swimming hole at the end.

Short but rugged trail getting down several waterfall sections. Well worth the hike to see all of these. There is a great waterfall a short distance upstream from the approach trail that involved getting your feet wet getting across, but don't miss out on this one.

A fairly easy hike with a few steep areas here and there but pretty moderate hike.
The multiple falls that you can see are really nice and make for a nice hike

Some GPS do not give the correct Location. Follow Brasstown road until it becomes a gravel road (about 3 miles). Continue for another 1.4 miles and right before small bridge, then turn right on dirt road, follow road to the end. The short easy hike downstream brings you to the top of the first falls, after that hiking is much more difficult with some spots being very narrow and steep. But to see the other falls requires taking it slow and careful, but definitely worth it. Highly recommended, nice series of falls.

You get more than one waterfall on this hike and all of the falls are very pretty. The first one is rather difficult to get to...as we had to cross on a small fallen pine across a creek. However the others were very easy and well maintained. The trail is very short and easy for anyone to hike.
