Amazing !!!!

Great trail to introduce new hikers. Scenic, challenging & fun.
Bring two bottles of water & one Gatarade...

Lots of fun! Decent hike and the waterfall is worth the effort

Great hike. Beautiful!

An awesome trail for a day activity. Two waterfalls along the trek. I ended up walking the trail in the rain which made Raven Cliff Falls more exciting to see since the rain made the waterfall thicker and fuller.

It was an awesome experience and me (47))and my twin boys 25 had a blast! It was so cool and refreshing walking beside the river! Just when you think your done hike a little further up and there is a beautiful hidden jewel of a waterfall Great Moderate Hike! Went afternoon and was not busy.

Absolutely beautiful all year. It's a generally easy hike with the constant soundtrack of a flowing river right next to you.

So pretty! The trail gets pretty crowded around midday so it’s better to go early in the morning. Our dogs loved it too!

Great hike, gets crowded if you don’t get there early in morning!

it was a pretty walk but waterfall it's a little disappointing unless you are a dare devil and want to risk climbing some rocks

This trail is located close to Helen, Ga so I'm sure many tourists think about going. Just a warning! When you walk down to the bottom of the falls you must walk back up! Beautiful hike and well worth it though! The views of the river are just as beautiful as the falls.

good walk and lots of places to take pictures

Short, easy hike and spectacular views of the fall! I went after it had just gotten done raining so the water was in full force and it was glorious!

Nice trail. Just a little short. Going downhill sucked Beautiful falls though and well worth the short walk!

OK. This is a bit of a surprise. Easy walk down and back up. Well maintained. But the waterfall at the end is amazing. You get to see one of the best falls in the area and it's only a mile or so there. Much better than hiking 8 miles through crazy terrain for a little trickle of water! This one is HUGE. The kids loved it - great picture opportunity !

Great hike, easy with a “moderate” section or two. Falls all along the creek are gorgeous. The falls at the cliff (especially up inside) are worth the climb.

Great short little hike to round out an easy morning.

It’s not just about the falls. My wife and I have taken this hike numerous times. We bring water and snacks and just enjoy everything this location has to offer. The river alone is enchanting. The trees are amazing. We love this hike.

Great trail and BEAUTIFUL water falls. Will definitely visit again.

Nice trail. Started in Unicoi and went to Helen and hiked back. Trail was well marked and well maintained.

I know why its #1 in the area, loved it! It has multiple waterfalls along the way.At the end, Like others have said you have to climb to the very top to see all the falls in between the rocks. The climb looks intimidating but its really not that bad. Just do it, you'll be glad you did.

Great trail and beautiful waterfalls! We went later in the afternoon on a weekday during Spring break which was less crowded. We passed a lot of people making their way back, but we had the Falls to ourselves when we got there. We took our 11 and 4 yr old and they had no problem.

I love this trail! I camp and home here every year!

This short trail down to the falls was amazing. Tons of views, no way I could give this any less than a 5 star review.

Easy hike—well maintained path. Beautiful multi-tiered falls. Some recent storm damage prevents access to the top observation deck at the trail end, but the trip is still worthwhile. Make sure you bring $4 in cash for the parking fee!
