Heading west on 64 from Turtletown, TN or Ocoee Whitewater Center, make the first right after passing through the Ocoee Gorge. Then make first left. Park, then follow signs for waterfall.

Relatively easy hike to Benton Falls and back. The rocks on the trail were challenging and hurt after a full five hour hike. Shared the trail with mountain bikers.

Trail was cleared with gradual slope. Basically it is a forest access road. Biggest problem with the trail are the 3 to 5 inch rocks on the lower end. The rocks are loose and make downhill difficult especially after a long day of hiking.

We started on Scenic Spur trail, and then somehow ended up on Clemmer Trail, so we never made it to the first small waterfall. Saw a few signs along the way, but don't know how we got off the original trail. The first two miles is uphill, so take it slow. The trail path itself is nice and wide, and we could walk side by side for the majority of it.

It was a really great trail the whole way to the top, which put us at Benton Falls, and that waterfall was simply amazing! It's an absolutely beautiful sight to see. We sat on a big rock and had a picnic there. There were a good amount of people at the waterfall, as it was a Saturday, but the trail itself was lightly trafficked.

We passed a few mountain bikers on the way up and down. Make sure to listen for them, as they come around the corners extremely fast. We moved completely off the trail to let them go by. They come down there so fast that there's no way that they would be about to stop or avoid a hiker.

Round trip, we clocked 10.2 miles, and it took us 5 hours from start to finish. We took our time, stopped many times to take pictures, had lunch, etc. Couldn't of asked for a prettier day, and thoroughly enjoyed this hike!

This is a nice trail. I made it to the first waterfall, Rainbow Falls. they are beautiful falls. I waded the creek, on the first crossing. I managed to cross on the rocks, on the second, crossing.

Great trail for kids with expansion available for a full day of hiking. The falls are lovely, especially after a day of rain. Note that there are two creeks to pass to reach the falls. Enjoy!

Extremely beautiful. A great place to escape and just be with nature. Not very rigorous but it was a nice little hike.

Clemmer Trail is family friendly to the falls and back. Additional loops and trail extensions can add to the day for more adventurous hikers.

Took the whole family oldest was 42 and youngest that could walk was 2 1/2. We enjoyed playing in the creek and waterfalls at end of trail. Even put the hammocks up. Great hike, will definitely go again.

First set of falls are great.. but if you do the hard climb up to the 2nd set.. it's for sure worth it. Wear great supporting hiking boots.. the rocks are very slippery. over all a great hike. loved it!

well worth the hike to play at the waterfalls

It was an easy trail and a lot of fun. However finding the waterfall was not as easy as the trail because the signs were unclear about having to cross the river (which you have to cross twice to continue on the trail, once at the bottom and again in the middle).Overall it's a great hike.
