Tall waterfall in a small park. Trail follows the stream.

Great easy walk into the falls. Kids and I had a great time and the waterfall was awesome!

Probably the prettiest waterfall I have seen in northern Georgia or western North Carolina.

It was an absolute beautiful hike. My 3 year old daughter and I did it in about 3 hours but we spent a lot of time at the fall itself. Especially after she found a giant frog. It does get a little tough right at the end ( Elora names them the silly stairs.) but, you’re so close to falls it’s well worth the challenge. I only needed up carrying her about 100 feet of the trail. She’s a trooper!

we didn't make it to the falls, but it was still overall a good hike

Beautiful falls. The trail is well maintained and we really enjoyed that the rangers try to keep the trail as natural as possible while allowing foot traffic. Crossing the streams made the hike more interesting. Please take the time to look around the trail, you will see a number of tiny falls in the creek and a humongous tree. The streams are not deep at the crossings and there are steppingstones. The fall itself is breathtaking, pictures do not show the magnitude or majesty of this beauty!

Super easy and quick. Beautiful falls!

Great trail! Slight inclines, but nothing too difficult. This was my puppy’s first hike with hopefully more to come.

Beautiful trail, some wonderful trail work has been done, thank you to whomever! There has been a lot of rain the last week in the falls were absolutely beautiful!

Really pretty trail. The autumn leaves truly made this hike seem yellow. A few easy stream crossings, I was glad to have a hiking pole though. The waterfall at the end is beautiful. About a 200 foot elevation gain on the way back from the falls. The hike from the falls back to the car took us 35 minutes.

Short Jaunt to the viewing platform...nice waterfall. We did not go down below the falls, looks rather difficult if conditions are wet.

Not too long, not too short to Yellow Branch Falls with a few creek crossings. Easy hike on the way to the falls, and easy/moderate on way back (due to elevation gain from climbing back out of the valley). There are flats along the way to recover. I hiked it on a cooler/dry day with my 22 month old son strapped to me in our Osprey carrier and there were a few ares where I had some slightly elevated breathing and some burning quads, but not too bad. Pack a lunch because there is ample space near the falls to relax, enjoy the view, and refuel. I also passed about 5 other hiking groups along the way (on a Wednesday afternoon) so it does see some traffic. The trails is also well maintained.

Beautiful fall walk to the waterfalls. One easy stream crossing across large rocks. Some gentle ups and downs on the walk. The trail is well marked and maintained. Very little parking. About 30 minutes from Clemson. Well worth the easy walk to see these gorgeous falls up close.

love this one!

Great hike with well marked trail. Waterfall is beautiful.

Super easy, nice fall at the end and well marked. Good for all ages.

Fantastic hike to a beautiful waterfall! Not too difficult 1.5 mile one way. Creek crossings, wild flowers. Will be gorgeous in peak fall color season with all the hardwoods!

The waterfall is worth it!!

Great hike a couple weeks ago, not too crowded due to the potential hurricane, trail was well maintained. One group of hikers on the trail did report seeing a mother bear and two cubs though, bring your bear spray with you.

Great, short hike down to the bottom of the beautiful falls. A lovely place to contemplate and unwind.

Easy, Quick trail. Took 4 kids ages 17, 15, 9 and 5 in early September. Trail was easily managed. Highlight: Great photogenic falls at the end.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end.

Beautiful fall. There is a outlook and a place to climb down a steep hill to get to the bottom of the falls.

Trail well maintained. Pup loved it, a few streams to cross and the falls are gorgeous. Bring the bug spray.

Its misleading to call this an easy hike. Yes, easy to get to the viewing platform but to really experience it, you need to go down a pretty hard, steep trail "crawl" of sorts. Not a long way down but be ready to crawl and scramble over some areas.

BREATHTAKING ! this hike is more like 4 miles I would say and it really should be categorized as moderate. Alot of tree routes and some uphill on the way back. We definitely worked up a sweat! Now one thing that really disappointed us was the restrooms. We wanted to use the restrooms before starting our hike but as soon as we opened the door, we literally ran out! There was poop everywhere! On the floor,walls and toilet. That was shocking. But you know, we forgot about it once we saw the awesome falls.

in past 3 months I have visited this BEAUTIFUL WATERFALL ITS THE VERY 1ST ONE I HAVE SEEN, PICTURES does it no justice , it's not a easy hike I will say not for someone who has sciatica and carpel tunnel but it was worth everything to see ISSAQUEENA I HAVE HAD A SPIRIT TO SHOW THEMSELVES TO ME HERE IN VIDEO

my wife and I did this one while she was pregnant. the way up to state park is mostly uphill and seems like an old logging road for most of it. we really enjoyed the hike. theirs some great views. we didn't meet any other hikers on the trail. It's defiantly a good trail to try.

super easy hike. we took my 3 small children and they had a blast. It's a real quick hike for a family hike. the falls are georgous.

it's a beautiful hike. the waterfall is georgous. the trail is well maintained and is marked well with orange blazes. It has 4 creek crossings on it. with all that being said I think the trail should be marked as a moderate hike. the hike out is uphill most of the way.
