My favorite hike so far. The drive up is cool. Lots of beautiful homes. The trail is through a very green forest. I was waiting for elves and fairies to start jumping out at us! The waterfall at the end empties into a clear, shallow pool that’s not scary if you have kids or dogs. We went early and were completely alone. On the way back we ran into quite a few people. So, go before lunchtime if you like to be alone. Afternoon if you like to have people around.

Excellent hike along the river. You pass several swimming holes. Great for families!

Get there early to avoid crowds

slightly challenging but fun! it was muddy and humid when we went but nothing unbearable. Wearing dri fit clothing helped with that. There were about 5 campsites along the trail before the warerfall that I think would be great to stay at.

Like previous reviewers, I want to emphasize that this route is only the rim trail, and nothing beats getting one of the 100 per day passes they issue in the visitor center to hike for the gorge floor. That is where you will find a really fun rock scramble along the river, and where you find Sliding Rock, a giant, natural water slide. SO FUN! We arrived about 9:30 on a Tuesday morning one July and had no trouble getting a pass. The climb back up out of the gorge is also a fun challenge.

Short but uphill hike to the falls. One bench about halfway up to rest. Path is well maintained. Falls are pretty but I thought they would be bigger. Lots of white rhododendrons in bloom first week in July.

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

Worth the trip!

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

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!

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.

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

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

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.

The falls are a must see for everyone. Beautiful and breathtaking. It's easy to miss so make sure you are looking for the trailhead or you might miss it. Get there early since parking is maybe 3 cars. Easy hike but if it has been raining wear shoes you can get muddy.

Easy walk and a little over grown but not too bad!

Nice trail and fairly scenic along the Hooch. Mulberry Creek is the final destination and is nice place for kids or the four-legged children among us.

Okay hike. Through the woods, along a little stream, but nothing special. Falls not that easy to see because they're in a crevice.

Very pretty, short, paved, hike along a stream to a smallish waterfall. Very very pretty. It takes a lot for me to give 4 stars to a hike this short and paved, but it's beautiful, and sometimes you want to take grandma in her wheelchair or the baby in a stroller, so this is just perfect for that.
