Absolutely amazing hike. I went counter clockwise at the trail entrance and did the stairs first down to the waterfall and was happy someone suggested this. I was glad I took my trekking pole to assist me on the slippery rocks when walking in the water and climbing up into the waterfall. Wear waterproof shoes and bring extra socks! I picnicked up right next to the waterfall, it was beautiful. Be sure to follow the white paint on the trees to stay on the trail to the waterfall, anything with two colors together; means it’s a joining trail and not necessarily headed towards the waterfall.

NOT EASY. This is definitely a moderate hike—especially closer to the falls. They were beautiful and well worth the effort. The Debord Falls are on the same trail, so stop and see them on your way.

Easy and short. The falls were beautiful and my kids had fun playing in them.

Nice stroll through the woods and interesting information about native people of Tennessee valley.

Rocky path in parts. great trail!

Good trail, swinging bridge and overlook rock are interesting. Good hike.

My family had a great time. Hopefully they fix the couple destroyed viewing points. We want to go back when the water is down so we can swim at the bottom of the big fall!

Fun, interactive trail for the younger kids.

Decent elevation change. A lot of streams crossing over the path. Great wooded getaway in the middle of the city! It was pretty muddy the day we went. Only drawback was that a portion of the trail backs up to a subdivision and you can see the houses. There is a way to cut off that section of the trail, but I didnt realize that until later.

Paved trail. we love this one! no pets allowed.

There’s really nothing to this trail it’s just a 3 mile hike by a river. I came into this hiking thinking is a least see one waterfall since you see some in the pictures but I was disappointed to find that this hike is really nothing special. Only reason I’m rating this 2 stats instead of one is because I went off trail and hiked by the Collins river instead of the trail.

not as easy as it describes. some area you will have to jump from one rock to the other. overall it a great trail

Well maintained and very friendly and helpful people in the visitors center. Definitely will be back.

It was good but easy hike!

Hiked with our 7 year old son. It was a bit strenuous, but he made it like a champ. We loved this trail.

I really enjoyed this trail. I had such a blast with the family. It's a nice and easy stroll.

Had a great hike yesterday with the family. Did the full trail which ended up right at 4 miles. Trail has great markings and is well maintained.

easy hike to an awesome overlook.

My 18month old daughter and I mastered this trail today. It was such a beautiful day. It was a little confusing starting out, but once we found the trail it was a piece of cake. Pay attention to the trail markers... we missed the waterfalls by a mile because we were following the blue markers. Follow the white markers. It will lead you down about 250 stone stairs right to the waterfall! If you’re backpacking (like I was with our baby carrier) it’s HELL getting back up! All in all it was a beautiful hike and I am so happy we did this.

What a sweet spot! Amazing lake views and so many trails you can choose from. Dogs aren’t allowed on the trial but they are allowed on Otter Road which is just as beautiful. :) Perfect for an afternoon walk.

Too crowded from all the visitors but great trail

The trail had a slow incline so it made it relatively easy. Several downed trees provided a small obstacle. Saw a couple doe on the hike we made which was so cool. Very enjoyable.

This is a very easy but relaxing trail.

Great short hike! You do have to cross water at times, so wear water proof shoes or bring extra socks!

Beautiful waterfall and very nice ranger at the trailhead. Very easy hike for kids and pets!

I’ve been hiking here since I was a child. Great day hike and plenty of other activities to do in the park.
