Nice trail with a beautiful waterfall awaiting at the end! Not a long hike but still quite challenging as you descend to the creek. Can be a little difficult to find, but it’s worth it when you do!

Absolutely gorgeous hike! I would give it a moderate skill level at my age of 57 as there are some significant hills, slopes, and a few branch crossings. But I would say it is certainly worth every step of the way!

It was nice. Scramble down to falls. Lots of trails and they appear clear, just not well aligned to the all trails trail.

The lower side of this trail is a bit boring and very straight. 3 caves overlook Athens bottom is cool. But then you get further up the mountain and you hear the stream and waterfalls! It is the steepest part but it is worth it. Caution there are 3 creek crossings. If the water is low you'll be ok, but it is slick and your feet might get a bit wet.

I would recommend this trail. It was fun and the moderate rating is accurate. The trail offered a good variety of scenery and trail conditions. There was a good bit of muddy areas after all of the rain in the area over the last couple of months. If you hike it this time of year, I recommend waterproof shoes unless you want to hike in wet feet. The actual distance was just over 12 miles as well. I hiked the trail clockwise which would probably be the best based on my experience.

The water fall is off the trail. We had to leave main trail & listen for the water fall to find our own way to it. Probably unmarked purposely to preserve the waterway from heavy hiking traffic.

Trail not marked at all. You’ll be following a horse trail if you attempt to follow AllTrails Map. Nice scenery, but you’ll be freelancing the majority of the way.

on Cheaha Cave Creek Trail

Closer to 7.5 mi loop. Counterclockwise is best. Not much to see beyond the plane crash and lookout points. Return skirts along the side with a few scrambles and cross cave creek.

Excellent trail, good hike with lots of cool rock formations and waterfalls.

Falls were beautiful today. Trail near Falls was very wet and slippery. Anyone can do this trail. Just take your time. Awesome hike!!!!

This trail was a delight to hike. Blazes are recently updated and frequently displayed. Was fortune enough to hike this one in the rain and was quite peaceful. I did change parking lots and used the white trail to trail head.

Well marked with several small water falls. Accomplished in the rain and was slick in places.
