This place is beautiful. It's been years since I went, but when we were there the parking area and pathways were very clear no trash ect. The walk down to the falls is easy, but getting back can be a bit of a struggle if your not used to lots of stairs. There are plenty of resting spots every so often between the staircases to rest though. Will be visiting again soon!

Great trail with fantastic views. Excellent for walking so there’s no need to bring a hiking stick. Many stairs.

Found this to be a fairly easy hike through the woods with a waterfall, river and covered bridge as the highlights. I went on a Sunday morning and it wasn’t too busy, crossed paths with a few dog walkers and joggers. Missed having blazes to follow but they do have signs on posts at all intersections and path well groomed so no chance of getting lost. I would walk here again.

cold, damp weekday my dog and I enjoyed this walk. We saw one other couple, it's easy to get turned around and lose your way when you walk this trail for the first time.

My son is named after this place ... will always be my serenity ...

Love this short trail. Rarely see anyone. Good climbing. Good downhill. Not well marked. Nice river views. Picnic table at the top. Boardwalk first half mile. Hike or trail run

Like others have said, the rocks on the red trail can be tricky. Almost more like bouldering. I did take my dog and she loved it, so it is possible with dogs. Taking the white trail back avoids having to go back over the rocks and trades distance for the more rugged parts of the red trail.

Very challenging trail for me, as it was my first back country camping trip, luckily I had my brother in law with me who has been here a couple of times and he was a big help. We did the trail clockwise and had no reals issue other than being out of shape with a heavy pack on. The trail is clearly marked and I agree with some of the other reviews that the mile markers are not entirely accurate. Please be cautious, as the the leaves and rocks are extremely slippery due to the recent rains. It took us a 3.5 hours to get to our campsite (3) and the next morning it took us 2 hours finish. I consider this moderate to strenuous. I will definitely hike this trail again.

Easy to make longer as it has many offshoots to smaller trails off the main loop. Nice scenery with creek.

Stunningly beautiful. Lots of different trails to follow

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Kennesaw Mt Park, but on the trail maps and at the trail head, it's called the Nose's Creek loop trail. My kids love this hike and we alternate directions we'll hike it on each visit but we do agree that doing it counter clockwise (as you look at the map) is our preferred direction.

Nice hike out, moderately strenuous during the first mile climb. Bridge is worth seeing. The walk back is along a dirt road. total trip was 7 miles by my GPS.

Awesome hike beautiful scenery, would do it again

Great time with my brother! The driving path was closed about a half mile from the start of the hike so we parked at the sign and hiked, finding downed trees and giant puddles in the driving path so definitely heed the warning if you see the sign. There was a small brook where we could fill our bottles too. It was an awesome experience and would definitely recommend.
Here’s a video of our trip.

Beautiful easy trail. It was clean and not crowded. Lots of parking and a huge bonus for being dog friendly.

Selected this trail since it had waterfalls and was the shortest looking trail on the map as we passed through. Did not consult AllTrails... lady at visitor center said “you know it’s 1200 steps?” And I said to myself ...”is that a lot? I can do 12k steps in a shift at work”...
What I didn’t hear was STAIRSTEPS. Lots and lots. Thank goodness for all the little landings to wait for my heart to slow back down. Well worth the journey, though!
And I agree re dogs and the grated steps... ours would not have made it very far had we brought him.

Hiking, Beautiful place. Waterfall.

It was a good hike , got my legs burning

Awesome trail!

Great trail I was slightly concerned when we started out because it is on a road but after about a quarter-mile or so you turn and go into a real hiking trail and it is beautiful after that.

cool mostly tree covered. but not a clear pathway kind of go your own way. easy walk nice historic sights

mostly paved. good walking loop. very easy walk probably great for running

Family friendly hike around the park with a nice view and woods

We did almost 11 miles of the 22 mile Pine Mountain Trail today and took the Sawtooth cut. Tomorrow we are hitting the rest.

Loved the trail, just hard to find the trail head. Once on the trail, all the different trails are all blazed.

I love this trail! Very organic! There were several trees to crawl under & step over, but it added to the hike in my opinion. Very wet from all of the rain & little sunlight. My GPS says we did 5 miles, however, the trail map at the trailhead says it’s 4.1 miles. We took the West loop to the quary loop, then the East loop back. It’s beautiful!

Overall good. had difficulty (and it could just be me) with understanding some of the trail maps. If you enjoy birds, definitely walk along the river it was like being in a aviary.

Dockery is always a good place to go for a brisk walk, fishing, or camping. The grounds are maintained well, and the trout are always stocked.

Great hike past the swinging Bridge there was a few muddy spots but if you walk straight up the road on the other side it’s a nice easy hike
