There is room for several cars at Blackwell Bridge. Hike 3/4 mile downstream on a faint path that parallels the river. The last 0.1 of a mile is on exposed rock, exercise caution.

This hike leaves me torn. I really loved the falls. I found the trail to be overgrown, confusing most of the time, and occasionally treacherous. Lots of over trees, ducking branches and practically swinging from the branches in areas.

This is a relaxing stroll along the river until you get to the falls, then becomes a little bit of a scramble. If you want to get below the falls, you will likely get wet and/or muddy. The shallow waters make for a great cool swim. The narrows themselves are powerful and great to sit back and listen too! Quick video of our visit: https://youtu.be/fDvfiWu1F2M

my family and I went to Chauga Narrows, most if the trail is easy walking , until you get to the falls then , the trail turns a little bit harder. but overall the falls are beautiful you definitely feel the power of water.
