This place is beautiful. It's been years since I went, but when we were there the parking area and pathways were very clear no trash ect. The walk down to the falls is easy, but getting back can be a bit of a struggle if your not used to lots of stairs. There are plenty of resting spots every so often between the staircases to rest though. Will be visiting again soon!

Great hike. I’d call it easy but I feel a little more seasoned. Great view with all the leaves missing. Sunny day.

Found this to be a fairly easy hike through the woods with a waterfall, river and covered bridge as the highlights. I went on a Sunday morning and it wasn’t too busy, crossed paths with a few dog walkers and joggers. Missed having blazes to follow but they do have signs on posts at all intersections and path well groomed so no chance of getting lost. I would walk here again.

Great 360 degree view at the top. Can get over grown in late spring and summer.

Beautiful trail. Not too far and the elevation change is gradual so not bad at all. Hemlock Falls is beautiful and the hike up along Mocassin Creek is stunning. I will be hiking this trail again. We have seen dogs on some of the trails we hike and although they were dog friendly trails, that doesn't mean they shouldn't be on a leash. Other people don't know your dog and some people may be deathly afraid of dogs. Please consider other people when you bring your dogs.

the lake was so full part of the trail was under water. it was very pretty but some parts deeper in the woods the trail was covered up by debris and hard to tell which way to go.

pretty easy, but super beautiful

I will start off by saying maybe this issue was because of the government shut down and having no forest rangers. However, this trail was being used by squirrel hunters and there were people hunting right off the parking lot for the trail head. WE COULD SEE THEM SHOOTING FROM THE TRAIL HEAD! Needless to say this was a 3 hour round trip wasted because we didn’t feel safe hiking with so many (obviously irresponsible) people shooting that close to the trail.

Very nice and scenic trail. Not much elevation change and pretty well marked. I will definitely do this trail again.

Love this short trail. Rarely see anyone. Good climbing. Good downhill. Not well marked. Nice river views. Picnic table at the top. Boardwalk first half mile. Hike or trail run

My wife and I hike this trail on a regular basis with our two Golden Retrievers. We all love it!
There are always friendly people on the trail, and we often run into through-hikers of the Appalachian Trail
The views are fantastic!

Nice hike , haven’t hiked for about a year and it wasn’t bad.

Good hike love the water fall at the end

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Kennesaw Mt Park, but on the trail maps and at the trail head, it's called the Nose's Creek loop trail. My kids love this hike and we alternate directions we'll hike it on each visit but we do agree that doing it counter clockwise (as you look at the map) is our preferred direction.

Awesome hike beautiful scenery, would do it again

Great time with my brother! The driving path was closed about a half mile from the start of the hike so we parked at the sign and hiked, finding downed trees and giant puddles in the driving path so definitely heed the warning if you see the sign. There was a small brook where we could fill our bottles too. It was an awesome experience and would definitely recommend.
Here’s a video of our trip.

Beautiful easy trail. It was clean and not crowded. Lots of parking and a huge bonus for being dog friendly.

Selected this trail since it had waterfalls and was the shortest looking trail on the map as we passed through. Did not consult AllTrails... lady at visitor center said “you know it’s 1200 steps?” And I said to myself ...”is that a lot? I can do 12k steps in a shift at work”...
What I didn’t hear was STAIRSTEPS. Lots and lots. Thank goodness for all the little landings to wait for my heart to slow back down. Well worth the journey, though!
And I agree re dogs and the grated steps... ours would not have made it very far had we brought him.

Hiking, Beautiful place. Waterfall.

It was a good hike , got my legs burning

Great way to get a quick workout in and you get a nice view at the summit.

Awesome trail!

Great trail I was slightly concerned when we started out because it is on a road but after about a quarter-mile or so you turn and go into a real hiking trail and it is beautiful after that.

Great easy hike today in the misty rain. The poplar tree is much bigger in person than in pics! Trail was great. Very beautiful area. Only about a mile hike to the tree.

Such a fun, easy to moderate hike! The summit is well worth it, even in the fog!!! We had two dogs and made it easily. Went on a chilly Sunday and it was practically empty!

Take the western loop clockwise to avoid hiking down rocks!

pretty walk. had fun climbing tree. easy walk in woods and water sights
