The previous gentleman was not kidding about the ticks - I have pulled NO LESS than two dozen off my dog and me since yesterday, and that was after repeated coats of bug spray! The trail is not well trafficked and so there are spots that are a bit overgrown, which adds to the charm. I walk with a cane and there are parts that were too narrow to use my cane next to me. This is not a complaint, just be prepared for it. One tree covers the path, but it has been there for a while and is not too much of a challenge to get over. The trail follows a pretty strenuous down, and then up, hill hike in a relatively short period of time. Even my four-legged companion was wiped after this one. The lack of city noise and other hikers make this a top hike in my opinion.

An AMAZING trail if you’re a sucker for water and nice views.

Scenic dog friendly trail. Clean paths. Nice lake views.

Worth the trip!

Easy drive to trailhead. Short, easy hike. Refreshing cold water! Will return with more people to enjoy!

Relatively easy and short hike to the overlook. Beautiful views and trail is well maintained. Dog friendly. Outhouse available in parking area.

This was an awesome hike. There are a couple of waterfalls and even tho the las third of the hike is pretty much just trees, once you get to PK the view is breath taking. I would say pack a bottle of water and a lot of energy... it’s totally worth the sore legs on the next day.

Loved the hike- especially the waterfall!

Very nice place to hiking

Took the family. We went to the falls, then a bit up the Benton-Mackey for only a total of ~2 miles. Nice little hike. The falls was the best part.

This trail is very cool but make sure you wear pants because there is a lot of poison ivy and the weeds are really high in some parts

Never saw a river. We went for a trail run and I believe we walked most of the paths there. Came out once in what looked like someone's cornfield...still no river. Where did we go wrong?

This was our first trail to backpack overnight. The scenery is beautiful. It is a pretty hard trail the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles. There are 4 campsites. The campsites just have a flat spot for your tent and a fire pit. The only complaint was that campsite one was not marked and was right on the trail. The trail is a little grown over at places with tall grass and poison oat so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and bring bug spray. This is black bear country so be smart. We will definitely be returning.

Beautiful falls! Also beautiful, natural trail, although very short. Be prepared though, there are no bathrooms nearby. The drive over is also nice, because the lake is very pretty.

Beautiful hike !

half of the trail is on graveled road which is not fun to walk on. a portion had had a recent burn and was grown up with weeds. and there was no waterfall on the red trail which is the one marked on the map. do not recommend.

Very fun and scenic trail

Decent walk. A lot of shade from trees, which is nice on a summer day in Georgia. Walked after a rainy day and some areas were muddy.

Worthwhile trip to see the falls. Great workout. Thankfully dogs are welcome on the hike.

difficult, but gets easier the more you do it. It starts off easy but that changes quickly. Pace yourself on the way up and down. it's like you're going straight up, so on the way down it's straight down. The view is beautiful at the top. There's an old war grave/memorial which is what the Disney Trail was named after. Once you pass it you come to almost like an outdoor church area with benches and a podium. It is beautiful! Hard but worth it! Trails are not smoothed out or anything like that. There are rocks, roots, dips etc.

Great overlook of the river.

A fun hike, but it lacks a view and a “payoff” for the climb.

Great hike with waterfalls along the way. The main waterfall is near the end. The whole hike is worth it if you climb the cliff and see what’s behind the waterfall inside of the cliff. There are additional waterfalls that you can see from the top of the rocks- it’s a very difficult climb but worth it. Also- climb down to the waterfalls along the trail. You’ll get soaked, but they’re worth it.

Very easy hike but one of the families favorites. My 3 yr old and 6 yr old have no trouble with this hike and love climbing the rocks and playing in the water. The swimming hole at the upper falls is a great place to cool off.

Great hike for newbies like myself. I would consider it easy to moderate due to the gradual incline but rough terrain. The trail follows a stream the entire way which allows for beautiful views of several small cascading falls and areas to cool off. The view of the cliffs are amazing especially for someone like myself from Florida.

This trail was perfect for our family! We had a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a 19 month old in a carrier! Very Shady with a well maintained trail that followed the water! Plenty of fun bridges to walk across and places to stop and play in the water. It took us about 40 minutes to walk in and 40 minutes to walk our , but that is with kids in tow :) we will definitely do this trail again!

Great easy trail alongside Moccasin Creek with several waterfalls!

Long Creek Falls is well worth the short hike in. It's quite the popular place on the weekends when the weather is good, so pick and choose when you go.
