Pretty crowded. Just ok! The falls are beautiful but the amount of people take away from enjoying it completely.

Nice hiking! Falls are pretty but crowded. Water is a little chilly but feels nice after a nice hike.

Very beautiful trail, well marked. Lots of mosquitoes but if you’ve got the right bug spray you’ll be just fine.

We enjoyed the water around machine falls. Lots of shade on a hot day and a few places to step off and snack/rest.

Beautiful trail! For the most part Is kids friendly so was great for us! We had lunch at the waterfall and was just gorgeous! Only sad thing was too see so much trash !! I couldn’t believe how many plastic bottles were all over the place. We took as many as we could but they were literally all over.

I don’t know how trail markers are confusing.. there are two paths and they go in a circle. Follow one preferably go left.

Very nice trail. Well marked and their were people out performing maintenance on the trail - picking up trash and getting downed trees out of the way. Thankful for people who help keep nature pure and accessible. The shorter trail was very busy

Awesome! There are several branch trails, so it’s easy to make this trail as short or long as you would like without taking the same path twice. Family and pet friendly. Loved it!

Wear water resistant shoes. You have to hike thru the creek to get to the falls.

Really enjoyed this trail. The front part of the loop (in front of the connector) I would rate easy and the back portion moderate. My recommendation would be to go to the left to start because the stairs are only on that side, basically straight down, and are *brutal* if you do them at the end because you have to go up them. Had to go a bit off this trail to get to Machine Falls, but it was beautiful!

We hiked this trail in March and had a great time!! We were looking for a good trail to do on our way to Nashville and found this one. It didn’t seem like much at first and then opened up to a beautiful waterfall. We accidentally took a “shortcut” up the side instead of the path on the way up but once we got to the top it was incredible. We only saw one or two others on the trail. It was a little slick, both of us slipped on the stairs once or twice, but I’d definitely do it again!

Loved this hike! There are 6 trails at this trailhead and it’s super easy to extend your hole or shorten it along the way! My pup loved the waterfall access area!
