This is a 6-mile hike, and it is definitely up and down. The trail is great, very little blowdown, and well maintained. The falls are simply beautiful! I did see a tiny brown snake and started looking closer for the rest of the “family,” but they stayed out of sight.

Followed directions and ends up at the very top of the waterfall

Don't freaking hike this unless you're prepared because it's up and down the whole way. And there's a much shorter path another way.

Very nice trail. Enjoyable experience. The directions are accurate to the trailhead, gravel road accessible by car. The falls is at the beginning of the trail from my experience. Very steep drop off on one side of trail for most of the hike, would not recommend dogs or children. Beautiful scenery!

Nice hike. Not too long, but a bit more strenuous than we expected. Waterfalls were spectacular.

This is a beautiful place to go hiking. there is a nice trail, it's kinda, steep, in places, with drop offs. I would not recommend for kids. Beautiful waterfalls.

Went in extreme drought and at end of fall. loads of leaves make the very narrow path slick and tricky in many spots but still beautiful.

The water fall is beautiful, but getting to to the trail is a little confusing. We did not end up going to the end of the trail. The trail has a lot of ups and downs and pretty rocky. I suggest going on it when temperatures aren't in the 90s.

Good trail with quite a few ups and downs. Getting down to the parking area at the south side of the trail does require a 4X4. If you park at the falls and hike the road is much better. We ended up doing a one-way hike on this as we had a vehicle at both ends.

First hike of 2015 - enjoyed with a good friend. Hiked to Hiwassee overlook.

Nice hike, beautiful area. Much of this hike is right along Coker Creek and the trail itself, while moderate in intensity is very narrow much of the way, and has a long, steep drop off on the creek side. I would not recommend this hike for younger children for this reason. The falls are beautiful, with about 7 long cascades, and there are areas you can wade in to cool off.
