Running

I jogged the moccasin creek trail and Anderson lane the gravel road early Monday morning and wore a bear bell. Good thing i did because my husband who was walking behind me saw 3 bear cubs run accross Anderson lane leading up to Hemlock falls. i came back 3 days later on weds and hiked the moccasin trail and part of hemlock falls and still wore the bell and saw no bears. i am glad i wore the bell so i never saw the bears

Scenic drivingGreat!

A great hike! Had fun hiking this with my dog. A moderate hike, that’s not to long and a beautiful waterfall at the end. Not to mention the BEAUTIFUL drive to this hike. It’s near Rich Mountains about 30 min south of Blue Ridge.

HikingBugsGreat!Off trailOver grownWashed out

This is not a trail for novice hikers. I didn’t see any other hikers. At first I wasn’t sure if I was in the right place. First, follow directions to Cochran Falls Trailhead. Apple and Google maps both work. It will bring you right over the first creek (should be shallow enough for any SUV), and all the way up to the second creek passing. Stay left, following Blackhawk Drive. This one is not really that deep, but it has a pretty good drop to get to it, and if a little muddy, may be difficult for any 2WD. Don’t worry, there are several places to park and walk from there. Secondly, there are no trail markers. Nothing will tell you that you are in the right place. Walk until you cross over the 3rd creek. After that, you will follow the creek down a dirt road for about a mile and a half. This is a very easy walk, and also appears to be popular with 4WD vehicles. There are multiple muddy rivets, and several that could be quite difficult for larger trucks. This will open up to a wide area, that looks great for camping. After this comes the more difficult climb. Lots of very narrow passages covered in poison ivy. It would be a good idea to mark the trail if the old markings have disappeared. In some places the trail simply vanishes and you pick it up later with a little searching. There are very narrow passages that one could fall and get seriously injured. You will be climbing in some places, not hiking. There will be a lot of fallen trees that takes a little while to get over. If it’s wet and just a little muddy, you will fall and slip. Don’t try it if you’re not experienced. You will climb straight up for a half a mile, cross over the creek a few times on fallen trees, then you’ll get to the top. You know it when you get to the top. Beautiful! You can walk right up to the falls. Watch out for sunbathing snakes. The climb down is more difficult, but not terribly hard for experienced hikers. This is one of my favorite Georgia hikes.

Paddle sportsFeeGreat!

Our family visited here to explore and play in the rapids. My wife and I each bought a fishing pass ($17.50 with tax) and that lasts 1 year. We will certainly get our money’s worth after thoroughly enjoying our first visit. The trail (boardwalk) was nice, however there were some boards broken that would make it difficult for someone in a wheelchair to get past. Once arriving to the rapids, the trail gets very difficult with a lot of vines. Nothing bad but gotta be careful. The rapids were very fun, we brought some tubes and floated the rapids. Our kids loved it! The locals showed us the ropes and were very kind which we appreciated. We will be returning here soon. I imagine the weekends are crowded so plan accordingly.

Greatly enjoyed this hike. We arrived early and beat the crowds and had most of the trails to ourselves until we returned. Best views are found by going down the stairs, across the bridge and down the stairs again to the lookout on the river. Lots of stairs to complete the whole loop up to the other rim (approx. 1100 according to the sign in total). Good workout! Hike back to the Interpretive Center is less maintained and pretty. Outlooks 7-10 weren't great as trees have grown into the viewing space.

Beautiful, natural trails. Not much breeze because of how dense the trees are; so early morning/evening walks are best this time of year. We saw twin baby fawns not even 5 minutes of walking.

The trail is rated easy. The southern loop between GB12 and GB11 is definitely moderate in difficulty. I took family and friends on the trail today and skipped the GB12-GB11 loop and had a good hike. And as others have said even that section was tricky with rocks and roots. And poles would be very beneficial on this trail. Given the other reviews I see and the clear benefit that poles provide I think this trial should be rated Moderate And it was great that the trail was in shade with the August heat.

I really enjoyed this trail. It is all paved and mostly shaded. The views are beautiful as my pictures show. As Arnold said...I'll be back.

Nice trail, but shouldn't be rated eas y. Tight turns, numerous climbs. Like the stretch along the lake. Only rode it counterclockwise Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Maybe it's easier clockwise :)

This is a great mountain hike (steep and rocky). It’s shaded most of the way which helps when hiking it midday.

Pretty consistent climb up to the top. Somewhat overgrown in spots. Not much to see along the way, but there is a decent view at the top and if you continue another few hundred yards along the AT to a campground. Good hike if you want to find some views quickly.

Beautiful water! Very easy hike. Wish we brought an inner tube or inflatable raft. Saw a few boaters but not a heavily trafficked area overall. Lots of giant ants near the lake access.
