Nice trail. Well marked. A little treacherous in spots. Just watch your step.

Great, easy hike along a creek with a Falls. Good spot to camp for a night on the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain.

Kids loved it and so did the dogs!!

One of my favorite trails to hike. Pretty easy and the waterfall is beautiful. The 5 mile dirt road to it is amazing as well. Love the view!

Nice easy trail for kids. Did this with 4 kids from 2 - 8. The falls are beautiful and there are great rocks to sit and climb on which made the kids happy.

This is a nice easy two mile round-trip walk, suitable even for small children. The falls at the end are serene and well worth the trip. There is plentiful camping at the trail head (where the AT crosses the forest road). I took this one as my warm-up for the day, carrying nothing but my coffee mug, before taking the Springer Mountain loop.

Beautiful waterfall! Tip: Some of the forest service dirt roads are for high clearance vehicles only. Check out their maps to choose the best access for you. Even some of the roads marked for passenger vehicles might not be suitable for sedans that are low to the ground - due to potholes. https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/conf/maps-pubs

The wife and I were on vacation in blue ridge, so we decided to find a waterfall close by. Long curvy roads but a nice a waterfall.

We love this trail.

Simple walking path with a small creek that crosses it. I liked the many mushrooms/toadstools along the trail, but maybe much better as a biking trail.

This app says "out and back" with the miles. Does that mean TOTAL hike miles, or it is ONE WAY hike miles?

Nice well maintained trail but I’d recommend hitting it thru the week. If you only have time on the weekends plan on arriving early to avoid the bike traffic and even then keep you head on a swivel! Otherwise it’s not a bad trail for a short day hike.

So so more for biking

So so, more for biking

Short trail with good waterfall. Was great for my 9 year old and 2 Jack Russell’s. Watch out for stinging insects, my son was stung twice by hornets.

Really beautiful-both the trail and the falls. This is also suitable for most people-less than two round trip-so you can pretty much bring anyone. We carried a couple of light backpacks and picnicked at the falls.

lots of great steady incline. perfect amount of time for a day hike.

Long Creek Falls is well worth the short hike in. It's quite the popular place on the weekends when the weather is good, so pick and choose when you go.

According to my Apple health data this was 3.6 miles and 16 flights of stairs so lots of elevation changes. I agree should be considered moderate, plus it was 85 and very humid today.

It was an easy beautiful hike!

To me it was a harder hike on the way out to the falls. It is .5 mostly uphill. The way back was easy, I have bad knees and I could do it easily on the way back. The hike out isn’t bad but it is uphill and there are roots and rocks to watch for. Worth the short hike to see the falls and let the kids play in the water. One mile total hike.

Easy, pretty waterfall

Trekked East from the Appalachian Highway 76 in Cherry Log on section seven. Very easy walk starting out with gravel roads. Talked to some nice folks while hiking!

It’s a great exercise trail and perfect for biking.

The trail is no longer a loop. A simple up and back. Nothing spectacular to see. It is easy/moderate and a nice hike but no real points of interest. Personally I was hoping for views like the pictures uploaded but this is a wall in the woods. Nice, but nothing special.

We didn’t complete this trail- we made it about halfway with our kids. Still great and would love to come back and hike the entire thing. Kids were worn out about a mile in. Steady incline.

Easy trail that my dog loved. Camped right down the road too at a huge campsite alone!
