Beautiful hike with lots of options within the system. Long 4+ plus miles to short 1 mile easy loop. Big minus...dog poo. All over the path and in bags. Pickup after yourself.

I walk this several times a week. Never gets old. Love watching the seasons change there. From the squirrels to the deer to the ducks. A great place when combined with George Pierce Park.

This is one amazing waterfall. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle with good ground clearance as there are two water crossings on the drive in. Trail is fairly easy all but the last 1/4. Once you reach this point I would only suggest the experienced hiker continue as it is more of a climb to the top. While this climb is difficult and proper footwear is recommend, the effort is well worth it. This is one of the most beautiful sites I have visited in Georgia.

Awesome and so worth the walk up. It is paved, but some areas do have an incline. Our Portuguese water dog did great and we would do it again! Falls are beautiful and so much bigger than we thought!

Definitely not moderate- should be classified as easy. Some slight elevation and pretty smooth. Remember to pay to park- 5usd

Trails were confusing at first. A few unmarked splits but all in all it’s a great little loop. Will be back out there again.

Fun trail. Steep and quick. Starts off easy, but when u hit the steps!!! Get ready. Nice view at the top. Once you get to the amphitheater it’s really it as far as view...trail continues a bit, but eventually turns into a vehicle access road, don’t know where that ends up, would be fun if ur a runner.

Very nice walking trail, well marked and not too many people. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet hike in nature.

We hiked both loops. Heading left/south/clockwise for both is definitely the more strenuous direction - much steeper climbs over shorter distances.

I had waited for a decent rain before hitting the trail, and it was definitely worth the wait - the falls were beautiful.

the waterfall is beautiful

very nice trail, the signage was a little confusing. I would definitely go again.

A tree took out a large part of the upper viewing platform, so you couldn’t see the upper Falls well, but besides that, it’s a nice hike. Wish you could get down to the water more easily but if you back track when you come down the stairs, you can access the river.

very easy hike restrooms a little way down from trail head. if looking to see waterfalls its nice looking for more of a hike not for you.

always nice a waterfall. good warm up

Skip this trail if you want to go hiking in the woods. The only walking trails are really paved beside the river. Once you’re in the woods, it’s a constant barrage of mountain bikes speeding toward you and then getting upset if you don’t see them in time.

Great afternoon hike.

Nice place and quick stop off interstate to explore. The sounds birds chirping, sound of water rushing down the rocks, butterflies everywhere so relaxing after Atlanta traffic! Seen people doing yoga by the cascades. Very cool!!

Historic Jackson Hill was the location of Fort Norton, an earthen fortification system which defended Rome during the Civil War. It has several trails to choose from, all very easy to get to and to hike. Today, winding trails provide a quiet getaway just blocks from Downtown Rome. Outdoor exhibits include the Boswell Cabin Trailhead, a cotton gin, replicas of Civil War-era cannons.

I found this trail to be easy going down and hiking along the paths at the bottoms of the canyon. Coming up provided a first class workout as you climb up 600 stairs. But the beautiful views, the scenic river, the gorgeous waterfalls made it all worthwhile. The sights and sounds were amazing and beyond what I was hoping to find there. Loved it and will be taking friends back to visit this trail again.

Tough son of a B, so rewarding! Awesome cliff side views at the top of you stay to the right. Then you get a wide open field for campin out at the top (if you stay left when you get to the top you get to the wide open spots quicker.. so If you’re getting there late to set up camp.. stay left lol then check out the rock side views in the daylight) definitely would recommend trekkin poles!!

Very easy and the trails are horribly marked.

stunning!!! the rock quarry is breathtaking. I would suggest going in the fall. the colors were fantastic when we hiked it a few years back.

I love this trail!! It is right off of 75 and the hike burns some calories going up to the summit. Nice summit but I would recommend going early especially if it is nice outside to avoid crowds.

The trail was closed due to a pinebeetle infestation, so I was not able to complete it.

This was a very cool spot to visit. There is 175 wooden steps to the top of the falls which are the biggest in the state of Georgia. There will be plenty of people enjoying the falls so if you want to be away from people this isn't the spot. You won't forget some of the views and sights and is a must if you're visiting the state of Georgia.

The Little Grand Canyon nevera disappoints!
