Very well maintained and the falls is absolutely breathtaking. In fact, it’s my favorite so far in Oconee County, and I’ve done 10. As with most trails, plan for rocks, roots, mud and blow downs. Highly recommend this falls if you’re in the area.

Trails were well maintained and easy to follow. Following the Chattooga River was beautiful, plenty of spots to break and enjoy the water.

The length of this trail is super nice - but the terrain is a little rough. Lots of roots and skinny spaces, but don’t let that deter you from the falls. It’s absolutely breathtaking. A few notes though: - There is a fallen tree you must cross, there was a snake in it when we needed to cross. Please be careful! - a lot of people said not to go after it rains because it is muddy. It hadn’t rained for days when we went, and towards the end of the trail it was extremely muddy. There is water coming down from the mountain. It will ALWAYS be muddy - so prepare for that when picking shoes. - we took a picnic, but there really wasn’t an easy place to sit but on the rocks, which are soaking wet, so if you want to sit bring a blanket!

Two patches of mud and a little bit slippery but an easy trail. The falls were running heavy and were beyond gorgeous!

The trail is pretty narrow, and runs along a steep ravine, but my pre-teen and I were able to navigate it pretty easily. We went after it had been raining for a few days, so some places closer to the falls were pretty slippery, but it was well worth it for the breathtaking falls at the end of our (approx 30min) hike.

PROS: Really nice waterfall, short trail, very few people. CONS: Narrow path, rooty underfoot, significant overgrowth, muddy, slippery and a large fallen tree you have to climb over. A short, not-too-steep, trail with a really nice waterfall at the end. Not necessarily "easy" given the slipperiness, trees obstacles, etc. A "one and done" for us.

Followed this trail down the service road toward the campground, on the way back we jotted to the train marked to the right of the bridge and liked that better. Falls were awesome. Water shoes a must as u can play in the bottom

The way to the trail is written in blue marker on a map board. once you make a left at that board. wooden falls marker / sign is on the left a little ways down. the trail to the falls is marked on the trees. it has some parts that are little trying with younger kids but otherwise very easy. there isn't a lot of sitting room at the falls. the Falls are Gorgeous! so big and beautiful. there isn't a lot of sunshine up there and the water is very cold but the kids had fun. there is also camping areas on another path up there which are beautiful as well. along side the Chattanooga river

I took my dogs with me. Not a bad hike, pretty easy. A large tree was down, so we had to maneuver around that. Enjoyed the waterfall all to ourselves. I wish I had brought some water shoes so that I could get a bit closer. It was a nice day!
