Decent view but very close to rushing traffic and it’s smell. Not ideal for clear days when it’s crowded.

Stunning historic bridge and rushing water. Plenty of foot traffic and some police presence when we went. Truly gorgeous walk.

Great hike. Road in good condition. Chattooga River was super high, waterfall was raging. Uphill basically the entire way back to the car but totally worth it. Nice well-maintained trail.

Good for birding and biking.

For local hikes, this is a five star hike. I only gave it three stars because if you are really wanting to compare it with trails all over the state, especially in the mountains, then this trail would not rate that high.

We hit this trail in mild rain, and temperature in the 40's. I hike with my dogs, so those are ideal conditions not to encounter other humans. The trail has some decent views, and decent rolling terrain. I started at the trail head and headed to the right side of the loop. After about 5 miles there was a nice Creek, with a small boat landing. So that is where we had a little picnic. There is a variety of views, marshes, Foster creek, some grassy areas...just a nice day in the woods.

The Bluffs are nice but the short loop trail was flooded near the river, so there wasn’t a lot of area to explore. Still nice for a quick afternoon visit.

I did this trail for the second time yesterday and it was great. The trail is easily marked, not crowded, and beautiful the whole way.

This might be one of my favorite hikes. The water is so pretty and the trail is well maintained and marked

Really pretty trails but many were flooded due to the rain. Hope to go back when it dries out.

Great moderate hike with lots of running water, beautiful lake views.

Great trail. Well marked. Not a lot of views along the way but a nice walk in the woods. Definitely take the Narrows route. There is a sign indicating the trail. The trail to the Narrows is very short maybe .2 mile but an incredible view not to be missed.

gorgeous late December run trail.

Love the falls on the spur at the end!

we walk or ride this trail every year at christmas.

Attempted to hike the loop 12/17-12/18. We camped at Burrells Ford Campground and headed East on the Foothills trail. There were a lot of trees and bushes down along the trail. We turned around about 5 miles into the trip and headed back to Burrels Ford. The next morning we hiked North on the Chattooga Trail. Again we found a lot of tress and bushes blocking the trail. We were disappointed that we couldn't complete the loop, but we enjoyed our time. King Creek Falls and Spoonauger Falls were impressive.

beautiful but isn't all of the chattooga?!

beautiful beautiful beautiful. went during the week, saw 2 guys fishing.

Fun, fast, and challenging trail. Super Springs to the top is a good climb be not as hard as one might expect. Brissy Ridge is a technical challenge.

Very easy and absolutely beautiful view of Table Rock at the back of the trail.

Hiked this counter clockwise with the trail to rainbow falls. Couple places where you could get off trail. Very technical coming back. Several roots, rocks and latters that made for slow miles. Very adventurous.

Fun hike. Rim of the gap trail gets a bit technical in parts. Trail is very well blazed but its important to pay close attention while on Rim Of The Gap (yellow), some parts are a bit iffy but I always found a blaze within 50 feet of questionable areas. All and all great trail. Would recommend to any experienced hiker.

Hiked here today.
The good: the river-walk was cool with great over swamp wood walkways. This is technically not on the loop trail, but connects.
The bad: the trail was closed halfway due to flooding I think. Looks poorly maintained.
I’d go back in the spring. Definitely need bug spray around that time.

Solid hike. Wear good boots with good ankle support in the fall and when it’s damp, because there are numerous roots, holes, and rocks hidden under the leaves. Some parts of the trail can be technical, I wouldn’t advise bringing a dog.

Our gps said 10.4 . Technically very difficult. Would not go again after any recent rain. The approx 8 waterfall crossings where very dangerous with the steep drop offs and rushing deep water, made my us nervous. Beautiful hike that is fairly well demarcated and we saw no one else on the trail.

The directions link took me on a wild goose chase inside of Oconee State Park. We did find a lake but we did not find any specific trail that went around the lake.

Awesome trail.. plan to get your feet wet.. with rain the past 4 days, we could not find the rock due to high and fast water. maybe next time. the trail is awesome, and the scenery is better. You can see and hear the river most of the way.

This is my go to for walking or running. I love it!

nice well marked trails

Did this trail with my two year old son. Had to pick him up twice for some tricky parts. (Rocky hills and some tree root steps), but for the most part it’s easy to navigate. Loved walking close to the lake. Towards the end you can branch off onto other trails to make a longer hike. Five dollars a person or 49 a year for individual and 100 for families fee. Beautiful place with much to offer.

Last one that I did. Hiked over 11 miles. Gonna have to come another time to conquer the rest of the park.
