This is a pretty nice trail for a quick jog. There's some very nice lakes and picnic tables around. I saw a sick mountain bike trail that I'd love to try! There's also little streams around which was nice to hear during my walk.

Love this area. Quiet and secluded camping and high shoals falls has always been a favorite of mine. Short fun hike down to the falls and worth the treck back!

Loved it!

OK. This is a bit of a surprise. Easy walk down and back up. Well maintained. But the waterfall at the end is amazing. You get to see one of the best falls in the area and it's only a mile or so there. Much better than hiking 8 miles through crazy terrain for a little trickle of water! This one is HUGE. The kids loved it - great picture opportunity !

Trail was mostly uphill the whole way. We weren’t expecting the stone stairs at the top but they aren’t too bad, just wish the railing extended up the whole stairway. The fall is a little anticlimactic but there’s an awesome spot where you can sit and hang out behind the fall and cool off before you head back down. Seemed like it took us an hour to get to the top and about 15 minutes back to the car. Going out is way quicker and easier than the hike up. Altogether had a great time, I wouldn’t want to do it in the hotter summer months but the weather was beautiful so we got a little sun without dying of heat stroke

Absolutely love this trail! We went Saturday 4/21... reading the other reviews I thought there would be a lot more flowers then there were. I would wait another week or two and it should be fully bloomed... but still beautiful! The best time to go is early am when the birds are waking. I love watching the sun rise through the canopy. Whole trail is well covered all the way back to the falls. Which we’re running quite well. Took a 4 year old and she did good, still learning to watch where she’s placing her feet so a few spills but nothing major.

Hike from hog mountain to cow rock mountain. Cool hike as the fog was sticking to the trees.

Fun hike- beautiful scenery at the bottom.

Easy, short hike!

This trail is 10 minutes from me and I take my husky here for exercise 2-3 times a week. Well kept, nice scenery, and plenty of rest areas if needed.

Great hike, easy with a “moderate” section or two. Falls all along the creek are gorgeous. The falls at the cliff (especially up inside) are worth the climb.

Great hike, pretty landscape. Killer climb out... after you go down to the river, the walk out is steep but an amazing workout.

This was a great hike. The walk along the river was one of the prettiest we have seen. The views and sounds felt like you were a million miles away. Be sure and get a Land Use pass or take ur fishing/hunting license. This is state land and they are checking for the permit. It helps support the upkeep. You cannot buy it on site.

Trail was easy to find. The porta potty had a sign on it that said due to lack of donation they are unable to keep up with the maintenance. Started walking the trail, and it was very pleasant, but NOT clearly marked. There are no trees marked in between trail markers and it is very easy to end up off course. We ended up miles off the loop turning a 9 mile loop into a 13.5 mile hike before we finally called forestry because we were running out of light.

nice trail. can easily become a 3 points of contact scramble if you get off the trail. beautiful waterfall.

Amazing waterfall! Keep this in mind: there are two ways to get the waterfall. One is via a trail in the woods which you get to by entering the visitor center and going out the back door. The other is via stairs that run next to the waterfall. To get to the stairs you need to go past the visitor center and walk up the road a bit. The trail is fairly steep with some moderate terrain if you are amateurs like us. NOT recommended for dogs or kids. Nonetheless it only takes about 40 minutes to get to the top of the waterfall via the trail. We walked back to the visitors center via the stairs which offers some amazing photo opportunities.

Very hard trail but well maintained and marked.

vista maravillosa, el lugar muy bonito...

I am definitely out of shape.

very nice and easy to follow. not sure why it's considered moderate though, I'd say it is easy. friendly folks along the trails also.

This is an awesome hike, especially in the spring before the trees fill with leaves. My husband and I were able to see the mountains and the valleys well. It is definitely a good idea to start this hike at Track Rock Gap as opposed to starting at Brasstown Bald. The most difficult part of the hike is the first 1-1.5 miles staring from Track Rock Gap. This section is pretty much a steep uphill climb. It was nice to get this over with. In reading other posts I was confused. It sounded like the archeological site was part of the trail. It is not. It is a separate trail across the highway from the start of the actual trail. The trailhead for the Arkequah Is very clearly marked on one side of the highway and the archeological trail is very clearly marked on the other. Also, the Arkequah is 5.5 miles each way. When you get to the end of the trail(at a parking lot with restrooms and a ranger station) , you still have to hike the Summit Trail for 0.6 mile to get to the observation tower. This may be why some folks came up with distances other than 11 miles. The total is 12.2 miles if you do the Arkequah and the Summit Trail. I’m not sure how much distance is added if you do the archeological trail too. With that said, the hike is strenuous even if you are used to hiking long distances, but the views along the way and at the summit are so worth it. Total hike time was 5 hours and 19 minutes.

This trail is brutal for overweight older people. Great hike and it’s NOT 5.9 Miles there and back. More like 7.5. Even the Indian Springs trail map says 3.5 miles one way. Be prepared. I drank almost 4l of water.

Went for a quick hike with my dog. The trail is fairly simple and amazing views! Definitely worth going to.

Nice difficulty with several options to take. Tons of dogs and trail runners. Bamboo forest, great views of the river, and beautiful places to take in nature. My husband and I hiked over 5 miles today and had an incredible time.

Beautiful fun hike- more challenging than most trails ranked moderate which made it more exciting. The quarry is gorgeous and I will definitely hike out to it in the summer. My dog Halle loved it too!

Beautiful trail very close to the lake. Awesome view of the dam. Me and Halle (my cocker spaniel) really enjoyed the hike! Best view of the dam is from the red trail that goes straight up

Pretty steep but worth it

This is a nice trail if you want a fair amount of distance (I clocked in @ 6.77 miles) without too many strenuous hills. Like others have said, should be rated easy with only a few moderate spots.

Beautiful trails! I was with my pup, so only did the orange trail - found it to be delightful! So easy to follow, a few creek crossings, and wide enough to stand while horses passed. Fabulous trails!
