Nice shaded hike with river and lake views. A lot of fishing spots to boot.

Trail is nice not too long. They say dog friendly but dogs are not able to walk the main trail which is the one closet to water. Some of the signs are confusing but overall good trail.

Great trail. We hiked the largest outer loop. At times it got narrow and swampy down by the lake, but most of the trail was wide and well maintained.

It’s a trail by a river and miles of it, it’s alright.

Beautiful, secluded trails. They advise you watch out for rattlesnakes, but personally the spider population is more way active.

Nice and well maintained trail. Staff and rangers are extremely friendly and helpful. Would strongly suggest to keep a map, available in visitor center. Ample amount of parking space.

Get ready to get wet! This hike has plenty of creek crossings so make sure you come prepared. The falls are absolutely gorgeous and the trailhead was pretty easy to find. Best part was definitely the fact that there was such little traffic on the trail. You should totally check out Emery Creek!

Great hike! The river crossings are fun on a hot summer day and our dogs loved it. There is swimming at the base of both falls. Things to note...at the start of the trail there are two paths, one leading down to the river and one leading up. The one leading up is the main trail. Also after reading the other reviews we expected the first crossing to be difficult. We did a somewhat challenging first crossing where we waded across the river but it turns out we just crossed too early and there was an easy crossing further down. Basically if you think it looks like a hard crossing keep walking and look for the green blazes!

A good workout hike uptill the top of the cliff. The waterfall is gorgeous and accessible. I went in the fall and the water was icecold but it was fun to be able to reach to it. Had a great time.

This is not the exact route that we backpacked, but I think this could be said of the entire Cumberland Island trail system:

Easy hiking with gorgeous views that range from live oak groves to historic plantations to flawless beaches to stands of conifer. What's not to love? This place served as a perfect early spring backpacking getaway.

Very few people and tons of wildlife including wild horses, dolphins, and a cougar!

There was one hiccup as we were trying to rush to camp before dark one night, and were confronted by a flooded trail closure halfway across the Willow Pond Trail. That made for a dark and stressful hike back. Some signage at the start of the trail would have been appreciated.

Good workout! We took our 3yr old along (he spends a lot of time hiking) and he enjoyed it, too.

Great hikes to lovely waterfalls with pools to lie in. Clayton, Ga

The lake, view, and waterfall are beautiful. However, the hike is not very rewarding. It is very short, you are always close to a road and traffic, and the waterfall is close to a water treatment facility. You are never more than a few yards away from very loud mechanical noise that feels out of place in the beautiful area.

Trail was kinda rough and saw a large snake so was nervous for the rest of hike.

Nice, short trail with water views. Perfect trail for kids.

enjoyable hike to the falls. the trail to the top is a workout.

awesome trail with great views. not to strenuous until the last climb to the waterfall. worth the climb.

This was a great family hike today. Easy to find, nice maintained trail. Beautiful view along the way. Beautiful area at lower water fall if you want to hang out for a while. It was getting busier as we were walking out around 11 am. Definitely will do again.

Solid trail for a quick hike that’s not too far from Atlanta. Rolling hills and some narrow stretches to keep things interesting but nothing too crazy. Good for all ages.

Love this trail especially as a newer trail runner. Nice staff at the visitors center as well.

Trail blocked half way by fence also lots of trees and limbs down also needs to be mowed.

Beautiful hike along the river that’s nice and secluded. I would recommend you have some agility skills because there are a number of trees down across the trail. After this hike we walked north for several miles on the road along the Tallulah River.... a beautiful hike as well and no trees to climb over.

This is a great walk. We did about 1.25 out and turned around. Beautiful views of the lake. It is posted No Dogs (seems to be part of the park across the road) but we saw no one other than a couple of fishermen thigh-deep in the water. So, whatever...

there are more bike trails than walking but I have fully explored all but two which are bike only paths. tons of great views and easy to navigate. my favorite park so far

Nice, peaceful trail. Saw a small bear by the parking lot.

walked trail and fished creek had a blast caught big bass on micro rod trail needs to be marked but i have lived in area my hole life

Beautiful view of lake Lanier and Chattahoochee river. We enjoyed the beach towards the end of our hike.

Arrived at the trailhead by 8:15 on a Friday morning. I came after several days of heavy rain and definitely had to navigate some muddy spots. But it was well worth it. The river was roaring and the falls were awesome. I didn’t come across anybody until on my way back out. Finished and back to the car by 10:15. I thought this a relatively easy hike until the end where you do see more elevation gain. For anybody hesitant to go on this trail you do come across several falls early on and could definitely turn around sooner and would still be satisfied. Followed it up with a trip to Dukes Creek Falls and then some wine tasting in Helen. Lovely North GA day trip.

Nice hike but more crowded than I would like on a weekend. Mid June and the rhodedendrons were just starting to bloom at the start of the trail. Almost no blooms yet higher up. The mushroom and fungus diversity was spectacular.

Been here a couple times hoping for a better experience. Like others have stated, although there are trail markers, it's easy to end up on different parts of the trail just because there are so many side trails. The paved walking/bike path is great for those looking for a smooth outing. The dirt trails weave too close together and it ends up getting boring. Lots of huge spiders and webs in the wooded areas that cross over the path so watch out. Makes for a good evening stroll. We saw 5 whitetail deer. Great park, trails so-so.
