Pretty east trail for an amazing view.

Beautiful hike, next to the river the entire time.

so we took out five year old autistic son for a day of exploring, we had a blast! The Prince, (as we like to call him) did right at two miles before calling it quits. this place is beautiful and an moderately easy hike at a good pace. having the river beside us was awesome and everyone we meet on the trail were super friendly. I'm new to hiking and this was kind of a foray into seeing how will I could hold up. this will likely be one of my favorite trails.

loved this trail, even in 36 degree weather. beautiful waterfall and river views all along the way.

Great, relatively easy hike. Really crowded on the weekends with lots of dogs and kids and parking is sparse. Plenty of places to play in the water and falls and at the end there’s a bit of a scramble up to see the main falls in the rocks. Take the gravel road at the parking lot to find some amazing primitive campsites.

Had a great hike today. Great views at the top. It is pretty steep with rocky terrain for the first mile. After that it gets a bit easier. Took the Rock Mount Trail back to complete the loop. Not as scenic as the Unicoi, but it did give a change of scenery

Not too challenging for a novice, but overall a really nice walk. I went in the morning and the trail was pretty much empty, but later on as I was coming back down from the falls it had gotten crowded.

This has become one of my favorite hikes in the southeast. Several waterfalls and numerous creeks to cross. Climbing the rocks at the very end of the trail leads to a beautiful view that makes it a satisfying end.

This was a great trail and well maintained. A few trees had fallen due to all the rain recently but easily passable. Great weekend camping with raging falls in action.

Beautiful views, trail is well maintained and a nice little hike to the falls. This is one of my favorite trails that’s our family has hiked!

This was a beautiful trail with breathtaking views on the Unicoi to Indian Gap. The trail begins with an upward hike on a rocky terrain for close to a mile- tough, but worth it! The trails do get narrow in places, but it was all clear. Definitely a challenging and fun trail on a warm day in north Georgia.

Beautiful double water fall with a great hiking path and great for little ones to go up and see.

The falls are great!! Only wished the upper observation deck would have been fixed.


nice climb

Beautiful, well kept trail. When you get to the top make sure you climb up a bit so that you can see the cascading waterfall off to the left. I’d give the trail 5 stars but the foot traffic was just too high. If I did the trail again I’d go early AM to beat the crowds.

Always a nice hike. Not super long, but uphill the whole way.

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 little challenging trail.

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
