Getting There

The first part of the hike has an easy incline, when the trail forks, stick to the left and you'll immediately cross a small stream. Continue on up this steep section of trail and you'll soon arrive at the falls.

Follow Clark’s Creek Road until you hit gravel. Then go about another 1.5 miles, pass the first parking area on the left, the trailhead is ahead on left with parking

Great trail to falls. Muddy/slippery from large amounts of rain and snow melt.

The falls are beautiful. There are plenty of people there but not overly crowded like some of the more popular trails. The hike is a steady up hill with a couple places of rough terrain. Worth the hike for sure.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Very pretty. Lot's of horses riding up the service road on a Sunday. You can park at the entry of Cherokee National Forest or by car drive 1.5 miles to the trail head. The trail itself is not hard but for a steep incline and a stream (fairly easy). Very pretty falls. If you park in the lower lot you can get in a 5 mile hike (but most will be a service road) otherwise it's less than a mile to the falls (if you park at the trail head). I recommend hiking poles for the trail as it's rocky and wet with leaves in the fall.

Easy trail for beginners. Moderate incline right before you get to the waterfall and it’s totally worth it!

It was beautiful! Climbed the cliff next to the waterfall and saw a small cave in the side of the cliff, but also met some unfriendly yellow jacket bees!

Easy hike with 1 small ascent following the creek crossing. There is no need to follow the trail beyond the falls.....nothing there.

Actually just a short, howbeit worthwhile, walk of only .6 miles (if you stay left and only go to the falls). Saw a sharp-shinned hawk at the falls. Lovely walk along this mountain stream!

Great falls and a short hike, but it is definitely not easy. If you're with smell children or nursing an injury, just know that it gets very steep for a little while, and a less steep but much more sustained for a longer distance.
