This trail was beautiful in the fall- at times when the breeze picked up, the leaves would fall down like colorful confetti decorating our path. The trek in was very easy with mostly downhill terrain, so we knew that the hike out was going to be much more strenuous, and it was. We are in our mid-fourties and not in great shape, but we managed it with just a few pit stops to catch our breath. The whole trip was worth it though, the falls are beautiful! We went on a Monday the beginning of November, and we were the only ones there the whole day. It's quite a treat to have lunch at the falls alone with your sweetheart! We hiked in with camping stools so we we able to relax and just enjoy the beautiful oasis- we definitely recommend this trail!

Spring and fall bring lovely wild flowers and butterflies. The final destination is the best. The Falls run right into the Chatooga. Great for swimming in the summer.

Nice hike. Falls impressive. Save some water and vigor for the climb back to the parking lot.

The best waterfall I've ever been to! However, we did run across a copperhead, so be careful!

Wonderful hike. I drove in from North GA and didn't regret it. The hike itself was fairly easy. Only about 1.5m in on a old dirt road. I went straight for the falls. They were fantastic!

The trail itself isn't that impressive unless it's wild flower season but the waterfalls/river destination is fantastic. Wear your bathing suit if it's warm enough. You'll regret it if you don't.
