First off, the ozone falls is breathtaking! The recent "Jungle Book" live action movie was partly filmed here!
The hike however won't take more than 10 minutes to scramble to the bottom of the falls. It could be difficult for some, but for an average hiker there would be no difficulty. I recommend this trail for a stop on a road trip but because it is only about .25 miles of actual "hiking" I wouldn't plan your whole day around ozone falls. That being said I want to reiterate that Ozone Falls is beautiful and I would go again.

Beautiful, but definitely not 1.3 miles. Marked trails combine to about .25 miles. Easy to top of falls, but moderate to difficult to get to bottom.

The trail to the base of the falls is hard, not moderate. Need to scramble down rocks and I was definitely disappointed.

Short simple level ground stroll to the top of the falls. Short hike to the bottom of the falls. I would rate the lower hike as difficult because its all rocks/boulders, no level ground at all! Slipper rocks near the water otherwise you will have good footing on a dry day. I would go back after a couple days of rain. Unfortunately for us the falls were at a slow trickle but still pretty!

Very rocky on the lower "trail". Short and crowded but 100% WORTH IT. Wear a swimsuit under your clothes. Waterfall and swimming at the bottom. You'll wish u had if u didn't. CAREFUL: LOTS OF POISON IVY!!

Great waterfall! Super short walk to the top and the bottom of the waterfall. Just really rocky on the way down. Also, there is a HUGE dog that actually belongs to the park. Nobody has ever mentioned him on here but it was a super cool experience!

Not sure this was hiking as much as monkeying over rocks to the pool. Perfect falls. Beautiful scenery.
