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!

Just back from the lower trail of green mountain. Easy walk up to the end of the trail where you can see blue ridge lake. Beautiful . It’s Friday and passed by 3 persons. Ideal with my dog. Also close to downtown blue ridge for food and drink when done.

Nice trail, well maintained. Either way you loop is nice. A trail for a stroll, not very difficult.

Great time of year to see the forest. We took the loop to the right at the fork and would recommend it this way. There is a nice lunch spot when you cross Flatt creek.

Long drive for a short hike. HOWEVER- this is a beautiful area, offers a nice short hike for kiddos and camping along the way.

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy this hike. You can see through the forest of naked trees and soak in the true contour of the mountain ravines, ridges and rises. We took the lollipop loop to the right and would recommend that direction. There are quite a few creek and stream crossings that make lovely spots for lunch or just to sit, reflect and inhale. After the hike we kept driving down towards the Toccoa River and enjoyed a refreshing brew and apps at Toccoa Riverside. A day well lived.

7 days of hard hiking, but totally Awesome. We backpacked to Albert Mountain

Great with kids!

Nice trail. Well marked. Beautiful stream that meanders along portions of the trail.

Nice hike for a group outing, but it was a long muddy drive for a pretty short hike.

Lovely day hike with an amazing waterfall at the end as a reward❣️

Dog friendly hike as long as you arrive early in the morning. Anything after 11 AM you’re going to start running into other folks arriving on the trail. I recommend going counterclockwise -that way you end up with water at the end of the trail. This only matters if you have dogs and wish them to have the ability to to cool down.
There is enough of an incline so that you’ll feel like you got a work out. 3rd or 4th time I have hiked and generally has quite a bit of solitude.

This is a great short little hike for a family with small children. It is nice to hike up the creek through a beautiful forest. Spring would be the best time to hike when there is plenty of water cascading over the waterfall. The coming from the north is not too bad, however the road coming from the south via Bull Mountain Parking lot needs to be done with four wheel drive vehicles only.

Beautiful trail along the river, culminating at a wonder falls. Not many obstacles to maneuver. Nice hike!

Had a blast,nice open trail,few stream crossings and an old free standing chimney! Not far from home and easily accessible!

The weather finally cleared today so it was time to hit the trail. Couldn’t ask for a better day!! There were several hikers out and about today but not what you would call crowded. I met two 2017 AT thru-hikers on the way in. Since all the rain has been plentiful over the past forever it seems, the falls were really pretty today!!
After I left the falls, I continued on up the AT for about a quarter mile to an old road bed and then back out to Three Forks! Great hike. Can’t wait to be out there more now that spring is just around the corner!!! Happy hiking everyone!!!

Amazing!
Tough yes but, totally worth it for the views and the breathtaking scenery.

Nice trail. I went during the rain this weekend and covered 2 loops. I ran clockwise and counter clockwise. The trail did not disappoint. I sprained my ankle a bit on a rock but was able to finish the run. I was able to kind of ice it in the flat creek creek by the bridge. I will be out of commission for a few days but I should be fine. The trail was very runnable even in the rain. Expect a lot of standing water if you do it in the rain.

This is a great walk. Decent views in the winter that would not be visible with leaves on the trees. Had a great time!
