We started the trail, headed to the left (clockwise) and it wasn’t well marked nor very worn in some parts. Many old trees are down across the path. We went mid Feb after a few days of rain and the water was fairly high and we ended up switching across the creek frequently. Wear good waterproof shoes :) Beautiful sights, great photos and overall a trail we will try again but headed in the other direction next time.

We took a route clockwise and it was great. The rocks and water fall after crossing the ridge were great. It was wet and the creek was flooded since rain was there day before. We had to cross the creek several times and there was no way to keep my shoes dry. But every one in my team loves it very much.

I highly recommend this trail. Absolutely beautiful. Would not go without hiking shoes and hiking stick. Cascading Falls. Below falls and to the right is another falls and a beautiful rock formation. Did not find anything to the left. Crossed creek several times.

It's a good little hike! The waterfall is beautiful! Didn't have any trouble keeping up with the trail..

We took our 4 kids and at times was a little difficult for them. However it’s really pretty and we all had fun. Like others we ran out of time but we did see several waterfalls. We will definitely go back.

Beautiful trail that we ended up taking as an alternate route. Hiked in from the southern parking lot up to Bee Branch on Friday night, camped through a thunderstorm, enjoyed a day of hiking on Saturday, and came back to much higher Borden creek on Sunday morning. I wasn't comfortable with the idea of taking a swim, so we went up the west side of the trail, crossed at the bridge, and came back down the east side. It was a nice trail and a good alternative to drowning

Beautiful place!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day hike today, despite the rain. We entered at the Braziel trailhead and took 223 - 208 - 224 - 204. Because of the rain and that it was our first time we missed the tree and carried on for about another mile till we backtracked and found what we were looking for. Don’t know how we missed it - it’s huge! We hike often, so this was a long but fairly easy trail. All in all we did 9.7 miles. Cold and wet at the end but happy with our adventure. We can’t wait to come back in the spring.

I loved it, but I also love crossing creeks.

Amazing. Sipsy wilderness ranks up on the top of my hike list. Started off towards Needle's eye and it, simply put is mind blowing. Very easy to lose the trail after that. we did the rest of the loop but had to rely on GPS to find the trail in several spots, especially in the big elevation gain near end/beginning no markings but so worth the loop. lol missed big tree. We saw a huge one though and thought it was it. We totaled 8.3 miles took 7h 53 m to complete.

Kinlock Falls is really easy to get to and is a pretty spot. We went after it rained all week and the road muddy enough that we didn’t want to drive the car through it for fear of being stuck. But, we pulled off the road about 1/2 mile before the falls and just walked to it. It’s worth checking out.

Easy hike to the falls, a little steep going down to the bottom of the falls. I will be going back

Decided to do this hike in January after many days of heavy rains. Wanted to check out waterfalls. This is not for beginner's. There is no marked trail. I basically followed the creek to see the falls. The terrain is rugged, steep, and very difficult. I Parked across Co Rd. 6 from Wolf Pen Camp Road. Begin my trek off an old road going through the woods. I begin at 11 a.m. and about 2 miles in I knew I wouldn't complete the loop before dark. Turned around and headed back out. I would not suggest doing this alone. Scenery is gorgeous. I would go again, just start earlier or plan to camp.

A really great trail. The falls are tiered! Follow the creek past parker falls and take a left at the fork. You will find a fifty foot water fall!

Right on the road. Deep water and rushing water! Worth seeing.

It’s great for a small hike. Has a rope swing and places to jump in. If you want to stave to the waterfall, I would suggest you don’t drive a small car. There are some spots (especially after rains) that you could get stuck)

Gorgeous. Very short hike, but it is quite steep and was a little slick after a recent heavy rain.

Absolutely gorgeous waterfalls. Trail isn’t marked at all. My son and I are novice hikers. We got a little turned around on the way back and it took us a while to locate the trail. Even with all of that, I consider this a must see/do. Beautiful!

Great hike.

A few trees to step over. Trail was well worn but nice walk. Waterfalls we flowing very nice. Able to climb to bottom one with trekking poles and back up to bottom of first one. Worth the trip if you are in the area

Great place to hike I’ve been hiking there for 16 years

I called the National Forest Service and they said that since Sipsey Wilderness is part of Bankhead Wildlife Management Area (hunting is allowed) and Bankhead National Forest, they do not “promote” day use, as such, at least not to the extent as some forests. There is a small team of trail volunteers that had to go through forestry training in order to provide maintenance to the trails. For example, no gas chainsaws are permitted and all trees must be cut with hand saws, if they are allowed to be cut at all. Also, NO BLAZING OF, NOR ON, TREES. And I am guessing that the trail post numbering are probably a curtesy of the volunteers and not the Forest Service. So if you are wondering why the trails are so primitive or seem unkempt, this is why.

Beautiful fall foliage! From a hiking standpoint, this trail was challenging. It wasn’t well-marked and we traveled through some heavy brush. Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the waterfalls - mainly because we were running out of daylight. Bankhead is one of my favorite places to hike - maybe just not this particular trail.

Wonderful trail l! Not too much climbing hills, but there are some great obstacles from squeezing through fat mans squeeze to crossing a small stream. Borden Creek is on one side and some rocky cliffs on the other side.

Trail was a great trail but hard to follow at times. We lost the trail several times and fortunately our gps kept it's signal so we were able to stay on course. I wouldn't recommend doing this trail without gps. It was a challenge but definitely worth it. Allow at least 6 to 8 hours to complete this trail as it is actually 11.6 miles for the whole trail.
