Very pretty, short, paved, hike along a stream to a smallish waterfall. Very very pretty. It takes a lot for me to give 4 stars to a hike this short and paved, but it's beautiful, and sometimes you want to take grandma in her wheelchair or the baby in a stroller, so this is just perfect for that.

very quick hike, but the waterfalls are really cool!

enjoyed the trail and waterfalls, our first time using this app and glad I did! I would definitely recommend coming here.

Great little stroll. Easy

Well maintained trail and even though the upper deck is closed due to a tree falling on it and making it unusable, the two falls coming together at the lower observation deck is fantastic!!

Easy Hike, Nice Waterfalls

Pretty east trail for an amazing view.

Deceptive at first - the two+ mile hike to the AT (app says 3.5, signs said 2 - I’m inclined the truth is in the middle) ends at Indian grave gap and the last stretch is a long slog uphill - gets the heart going but not too hard, never see a person on this trail - it’s a great way to tack on 2 miles of solitude til you get to the AT and decide north or south - north to Tray has the better camping.

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.

gorgeous

nice climb

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

Amazing !!!!

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 !

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!

The view of the falls at the bottom is nice.

I’m not gonna say this is a bad trail, because it isn’t. It’s an easy-moderate walk to a pretty cool falls, on a very well maintained trail. What it is though, is very over trafficked. And paved. And paid access. With a fully paved parking lot. It’s great for a day hike with family and pets, but it’s not exactly the genuine “hiking experience” that I would go for either.

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!

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.
