Not a good experience, too much jungle.

the trail was a lot of fun but a lot of it was up hill which is fine and there was a couple of deep holes on the trail and not very kid friendly.

Steep incline to start but otherwise a fairly easy trail.

Great trail, the down trees at the beginning of the trail have been cleared! It was actually about 8.2 miles up to the top and back. Got here at about 8am on a Wednesday morning and never saw another person. The view from the top is amazing!

Great views!! More of a walk than a hike

Hiked from Brasstown Bald to Trackrock Gap! Being a senior citizen (70) & “flatlander” (Louisiana), I thought I’d try the predominantly downhill trail first! Look forward to going back later in the fall for more great views! Other reviewers mentioned the tough “uphill” from Trackrock at the beginning, but it wasn’t a picnic for these tired old knees going downhill either! Very little water so better pack yours in! Definitely take hiking sticks! Lifesavers! 3 1/2 hours! Not bad for an old guy! Hike on!

Amazing hike, 7 creek crossings, loved both falls on this trail. Well worth the hike.

Great trail in the burbs!! Walking along the river and couple of elevation is great!

Need to plan next time to stay here and maybe stay in one of the yurts. Only got to do the loop and one of the falls - Cherokee. So need to go back and do the other trails and falls.

Love this hike- a North Georgia classic. Did this with my wife and two girls 5 and 2. 2 year old hiked about 60% of the way up to the top of Blood. 5 year old did the whole hike with minimal complaints, however bribes were leveraged for this. All the same proud Papa and Mama.

Very nice views. I love water falls and this trail is amazing!

Great views

Great trail, most foot traffic is near the Panola trail head after you ride out about 1.5 miles not many people walking mostly cyclist very quiet beautiful bridges over the creek connects with the Arabia trail

I loved this hike.

Took my son and dog for an afternoon trip. Easy trail and safe. Beautiful views.

Very beautiful sets of falls. However mileage is closer to 1.45 in and 1.45 out to the road trailhead for a total of about 2.9 to 3 miles RT. Whoever posted this and said 1.1 in and 1.1 out must have been at the Rabun Beach campground trailhead. Trail is easy/moderate to the second set of falls and then moderate/difficult to the final and third set of falls. Overall worth the 3 miles.

Relatively short and easy to moderate hike that offers good views of Atlanta at the top. The trail itself is well marked and clean. It is steep at times and has a few switchbacks, but nothing too crazy. The observation deck at the top is nice, but there are so many trees that views of Buckhead and Atlanta are somewhat obstructed.

Parking can be a challenge on weekends--either circle through the lot and wait for someone to leave or park about half a mile away at the overflow lot.

Lovely views. I could see all the way to Atlanta from the top. The trail is difficult for beginners and moderate for the average hiker. It is just almost non-stop inclines all the way up. The trail is marked, but be sure to keep an eye out for markers on the way up and down as there are several side trails, and it's not always well marked.

The hike was nice being right next to the creek the whole way, was soothing hearing the mini rapids. The falls was like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, well in a sense. :)

great all around family trail.
we hiked this trail on the last Sunday and it was simply great.
family of 5 and even the 3 old kid managed to do most of it.
we haven't complited all of the trail but completed around 3/4 of it.

Wonderful hidden gem for a short walk in the woods. Nice trail to take your dog for a walk.

This was a short hike with a bushwhack to the summit of Cowpen Mountain and back. Long forest/service road drive to the trailhead at Three Forks Mountain. Still smells like fire in this area of the woods. Also, the bow hunters are out so be careful! I hiked East Cowpen Trail to the backside (north) of Cowpen Mtn where the ridge line comes down to the trail. At that point I turned back south and bushwhacked the ridge to the summit. Encountered only briers which were easy enough to go around or through. Pile of rocks is all there is to the summit. No views. From there I headed almost due East back to the trail and from there to the trailhead.

Not the most scenic route until you get to the end but good exercise. Overall I think it rates easy but there are a few elevation changes that are some work. I did it in under three hours with a 20 minute lunch break and some water/picture breaks. I would recommend having a walking stick or grabbing one from the trail, mine saved me from walking through at least three banana spider webs! Much of the first mile is a sandy creek bed so be aware it’ll be wet, especially after it rains.

Nice scenery. Trail really isn’t well marked, so the map is very helpful. Lightly traveled. Would go back.
