Lots of water over the falls. Mara is correct about the large hole in the access road, but I made it in my Mustang. Believed the gps at first and missed the road to the parking area at first and drove down a extremely rocky road to where the road crosses the creek. After taking a few pics, finally turned around and found the correct road to the parking area. When FDR #341 hits a tee, go to the right, not the left. Look for the trail #170 marker - I missed it the first time.

Trail is in pretty good condition except for the 3 large trees across the path near the top of the falls. It's nice and smooth for about the first half, then the next quarter is pretty "rooty" and the final stretch is rocky. A nice hike - but a lot easier going down than back up.

The waterfall was pretty, but the drive in needed more gravel. It was very rocky and driving up the long road in was super bumpy. There was one point where there was a giant hole in the road in the middle of a steep hill. I don't think we would have made it except we were in a jeep.

Beautiful waterfall, trail was fine, the drive up to the trailhead not great, some of the road was washed out, maybe repaired by now? Another hike shot a water moccasin while I was near the falls.

Great hike in just 1.2 miles. There are several steps down to the base of the falls. The falls are gorgeous! The hike out is a little steep in places. You can do this how easily in an hour.

The hike down to the falls is fairly easy. Conasauga Falls is beautiful small waterfall. The hike back up is a little more difficult.

Not a hard hike. The trail was in great shape!
3 mile road to get to trailhead was a little rough with a few deep ruts, road a little rocky in some places... glad i drove a 4x4... loved everything about this place.

The hike is easy not hard the falls were beautiful and still running it seems the drought didn't affect that area too much. I feel blessed to have been able to go alone and feel safe about it. I did find someone's keys though they have a Nissan if these are your keys please email me at eubanksjenny588@gmail.com
