Lovely hike that wasn’t too difficult for my level, despite just getting over being sick. There were some slightly sketchy bouldering moments, but the views of the ridge throughout the hike and at the lookout point (near parking) made it worth it. I think it’ll be even better when the leaves are off the trees and visibility is even farther.

amazing fall colors

Strange trail at the start. The first 2-3 Miles are very scenic with creeks and small waterfalls culminating in Cascade Falls. Unfortunately these falls are a very touristy hike and I saw everything from couples with dogs to families with little kids. There aren’t may folks on the last six miles of the loop but it’s also not as scenic until you get towards miles 6-7 and you have some overlooks. Not a bad trails but feels like it isn’t terribly well maintained (tons of fallen timber and overgrowth along the trail), and in some places I had to use my AllTrails map to figure out which way to go. Definitely good exercise though and more of an “away from it” hike once you get past Cascade Falls.

Such a beautiful hike! It was about an hour hike in and an hour hike out. The falls were so nice and relaxing.

My first hike in MANY years. So, essentially, I am a newbie. I was worried how walking downhill would affect my knees. But the downward slope was gradual enough in some spots that I didn't feel it at all. I think a couple more times out will help build my endurance much more. I will definitely be back, and can't wait to do more each time!

Nice hike, not difficult but steady.

Did this hike last Sunday afternoon. The colors were lovely and the weather, although warm, permitted this hike. I'm 6 months pregnant and we had our little dog. The total time for us was 2 hrs 15 mins. We started the loop to the right. This route consisted of lots of larger rocks and a more overgrown path, leading down into a lower elevation. There were a few bugs but no big webs to avoid. Once you cross back over the main road, the path heads north a bit, elevation changes throughout. This half of the trail is more open. The last part of the trail includes a small campground and a waterfall. A small portion of the trail meanders alongside a cliff, which would be difficult for anyone hiking w children. Overall the hike was a great workout. The downside to this hike is that there are no good overlook views along the way. Not really any good resting or stopping points. The nice part of the hike was that we did not encounter any hikers the entire loop, which makes for a more peaceful hike if you're looking for that. The view from the parking lot overlook is nice, but these views are nothing in comparison to the views in north Georgia.

Loved this! It was a great trail and cascade falls is beautiful! You get to see a few other waterfalls on the way!

I did not know I would see all the different waterfalls on this one hike. Slippery Rock Falls, Big Rock Fall, Csonka Falls, and Cascade Falls. I will definitely do this hike again

Moderate trail with pretty views. There are waterfalls and all sorts of things to see! I recommend this trail for sure.

I do not believe, for a 7 mile hike, moderate is fair. I would rate this a difficult hike and it should not be taken lightly. The terrain is roughly 80% rocky and there are parts where you are outright bouldering. Take plenty of water and take your time. It is very hard on dogs as well. We were going to backpack this loop over 2 nights but ran into foul weather so we were going to finish the loop. It was extremely difficult and I did not hydrate enough (to be fair, it was like 100° outside).

On the other hand, this is one of the best maintained trails in Georgia. It has blazes very regularly, there are bridges over washed out spots and creeks. You do cross the mountain stream a couple times by rock hopping, which could be hard in the case of heavy rain.

There are gorgeous, beautiful mountain spring waterfalls. There are amazing views as well. You can take white candle trail at the left ( + .5 mile) instead if beaver pond to see Odie Overlook, it's gorgeous as well.

very enjoyable trail

Just hiked it to cascade falls and back out. 5 miles on the dot the way we went. Great trail with several creek crossings

We
Did it counterclockwise. Waterfall and stream section was amazing. Trail is well marked but about a half mile through what appears to be new growth pines is extremely overgrown with briers. The trail at some points is chocked down to the point you almost needed a machete.

Loved the hike- especially the waterfall!

Great trail!!! was well marked and maintained.

Parts of the first two miles of the trail, hiking clockwise,including the beaver dam trail was an easy hike but somewhat overgrown and in need of some maintenance. The last two miles included several waterfalls and stream crossings which makes for a nice finish. The trail is well marked and easy to find.

This trail was my second hike ever. It was marked very well and easy to follow. You will cross a few small streams and it does get hilly in some spots, especially trekking to Cascade falls. I only did the out and back from the TV tower to Cascsde falls and it was about 5 miles total. It was a very nice hike. Dog and Kid friendly.

One of my favorite moderate hikes in the area. Beautiful changes in ecosystem as you travel through the entire trail. I like to start with the beaver pond and finish with the waterfall section. Go in April and see tons of blooming Mountain Laurels. The waterfall section (up until Wolfden) is fairly busy but I rarely see people after that. You will cross the stream several times via rock and some footbridges. Roots and rocks in the path and the parking area have no bathrooms at the start. Usually takes me around 3 hours at a relaxed pace.

Great training for the Appalachian Trail

Beautiful views on this hike! Per the trail signs, it seemed to be 4.2 miles from the tower and back.

so gorgeous and the right amount of challenge.

Fantastic loop! Everything is in bloom right now

Absolutely love this park and it’s many trails when me and the wife at the time used to hike it. Divorced now and actually going back solo today.

Great Trail, super views.

Nice hike, great little workout work some good inclines. Watch your step with the rocks! Keep your eyes open or you will miss elephant rock. The trail is marked good.

moderate (loop). waterfall section was busy but rest of the well marked trail we had all to our selves. The old growth pines are amazing.

Awesome trail. Definitely do it clockwise. It’s great to end it with the falls and walks over the streams. Easy to moderate rating. 2 out of shape adults and an energetic dog and 8 year old did it in about 4 to 4.5 hours.
