Quite easy in the beginning crossing few creeks then becomes a little difficult with climbing rocks to get close to the beautiful waterfall but worth the effort .

The trail is hard to follow at one or two points but is relatively easy and an absolutely spectacular waterfall!!

What a wonderfull waterfall and walk. The rock scramble at the end is a challenge, but my wife did it. One of my favorite hikes to date.

We hiked the trail as shown by AllTrails. In addition we also decided to check out the well-used trail that goes beside the unnamed creek just east of Tamassee Creek; there is nothing notable to see along it. The trek to the falls is wonderful; if you stand still and listen you won't hear a sound from anything man made. After the 5th creek crossing the trail definitely becomes technical near the falls as others say. I have been with other groups in the past when someone fell by moving too quickly or just being careless. Also, the rocks in and near the stream can be very slippery. This can be especially hazardous as one can easily build a false feeling of security as there is good traction on many rocks and on the trail.

A great hike! Pretty easy hike until you get closer to the falls. Expect to do some rock/tree climbing!

I’d been warned that the final section of this trail might be tough for my two younger kids, so I left them at home and took my ten-year-old. After completing it, I think my five- and seven-year old would have been okay. The creek crossings were so fun, and it was a true scramble to the top, but never dangerous and so worth it.

Hiked with Miss 8. Her descriptions: - "It's a good place to hear the [nature] song." - "It's an awesome waterslide for fairies."

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

Great trail..really easy, up until the scramble, and even that wasnt too bad. I took my 9 and 5 yo and they loved it. maybe like 5 or 6 places where you need to cross water, but people have set up little rock/stick paths across..the kids still managed to get some wet feet but it was a pretty short hike. someone had tied neon tags to trees and things up the rocky area which was helpful finding the easiest way up! Trekking poles were helpful! The falls were beautiful.

Nature tripsGreat!RockyScramble

Loved this trail! As others have said, easy except for some challenging stream crossings even for us waterproof boot folks. The last 1/4 of trail to the falls was SO MUCH fun - If you love a good scramble. So rewarding to stand beneath the falls’ spray after working so hard to get so close. Be careful and just have fun with this trail!

Previous reviews could’ve been more specific and said these are stream crossings two of them are calf deep and I had to pick up my pug - she does not swim! Trail starts at the gate - easy walk through pasture & woods. The all trails map is perfect to use for this trail because there are a lot of little switchbacks in places near the falls where it is a little harder to find the trail - crossing the water back & forth. Nice little scramble over old blow down - rocks & water it was a nice hike little different than some at the end. btw gps wanted me to stop about 50 yards from a parking area - I found it when I kept driving to turn around.

HikingBlowdownGreat!

The first 3/4 of the trail is rather easy other than a couple stream crossings. The last 1/4 mile is very difficult if you're not an experienced hiker. Lots of fallen trees and slippery rocks to climb over. The waterfall is worth it if you make it to the end. Definitely worth the effort.

I went at the beginning of February and the storms and rain caused a lot of debris, so definitely more difficult than normal, but the falls are gorgeous and it is worth the climb and the mud!

I've done this hike before, and wrongly assumed I knew the way! After you pass through the pastures and enter the woods, the trail passes through several large fallen tree trunks which have had sections sawed out to allow the trail through. Just after this spot the trail splits. The least obvious choice is to cross a small stream, where the Lee Falls trail continues on. Unfortunately the more obvious trail doesn't cross the stream and continues on for a ways before a large number of recent blow downs make following this trail more and more sketchy. Lees Fall trail is not marked. Thanks to the All Trails app, when I finally figured out I had taken a wrong turn I was able to see where I was and where I should have turned.
