This trail is absolutely amazing and beautiful. The overlook is stunning and it makes the climb totally worth it. However, make sure to be extremely careful and to look out for potentially dangerous animals. My friends and I camped overnight in a campsite near the main overlook and we spotted a mountain lion that hissed and growled at us on the way back to the campsite from the overlook. The next morning we saw 2 Black bear cubs and their mom as well as a few snakes.

Hiked Angel Falls Overlook and the Grand Gap Loop over two days. There is a perfect camping spot where Angel Falls Overlook Trail intersects with the Grand Gap Loop Trail. It is behind the sign at the top of the hill. There is no water on the trail after the small rock shelf that you hike which has a cable attached. Make sure you fill up your water there. We used a mini sawyer filter. Camp site is about .5 mile past the ladder and rock shell cable are. Stumbled on a black bear twice while hiking this trail so beware. Beautiful views at the two overlooks to the right of the intersection mentioned previously. All in all a great hike!

The Charit Creek Lodge is a rewarding treat to see along the loop. Lots of history in this area. Very pretty area!

Did the north side of the stream trail which was not very well maintained so the next time I will do the south side that sounds like a better option on my next camping trip to Bandy Creek Campground.

Beautiful mountain scenery and great for the whole family

We had a group of mostly young Boy Scouts. We enjoyed camping at Jakes Place and the side trip up to Slave Falls was worth it for sure. This was the perfect loop for our younger guys with heavy packs and sore legs. Luckily we had amazing weather.

Titled "Twin Arches" but doesn't go within miles of the Twin Arches?!

Beautiful views, rock faces and flowers

Nice easy trail, mostly follows an old road. Nice views of the Big South Fork River. Great for little ones too. Take your time and explore the area.

gorgeous view at the overlook. worth the climb. whole trail is well worth the hike. a little bit of everything.

Great trail. Simple and well maintained. Very easy, the trail it’s self wasn’t spectacular but there were several pretty views. Would and probably will do again.

Great trail. Can get kinda confusing with the lack of markers. The view and the trek up the ridge are gorgeous. The bridge to get to the overlook is broken and the “alternate route” was a swim through a 5ft deep creek. So get ready for a cold wade. Overall great hike.

Easy. Well maintained trail. nice views along the river and some water coming off the blufff. Interesting exploring the shoreline at the "Falls". OK experience. Do with another trail to fill a day.

Loliipop out & back combo w Grand Gap Tr-12.4mi. Easy. Well marked & maintained. Bridge over Fall Branch broken but can still use. Superb section from Fall Branch up to the plateau-interesting rock features. Several pretty waterfalls & some great vistas from outcrops on the rim. A very enjoyable hike.

beautiful area.

5 stars for the view and workout. Trail needs some work. The leatherwood ford and another bridge on the trail are damaged. It wasn't 10 miles, maybe 6.

Arch to Jake's Place...and out.

Did an overnight with great company looping clockwise. Arrived at 12 allowing plenty of time to visit the larger arch/cave, stroll to Charit Lodge for late lunch and finish with a casual hike and liesurely camp setup at Jake's Place. We ate dinner and talked around the campfire before calling it a night. Woke up with a quick morning out and back toward Needle Arch and Slave Falls. Then it was time to walk up and out. The first mile leaving Jake's is enough of a climb to raise the heart rate a little. The last 1.7 are along the rock bluff, towers overhead. Just beautiful hiking before the ascent up the stairs/ladders.

Great trail! Clearly marked! Perfect campsite on the water 1 mile in.

This trail had it all, very rugged back country! Ladders, bridges, climbs, rocks, creeks, wild flowers! we did see a copper head on this trail as well as bear marks in some mud so no doubt you are in bear country! Lots of caves along the way as well! We loved this hike and it had just the right amount of challenges.... not too hard but very rewarding views! We will definitely do this one again!

We did about about 10 miles of it from Zenith trailhead about 5 miles each way. Even though it had been days since it rained it had been a wet summer so there were muddy spots but the soil is not clay so it wasn't slick. An easy ride. And even though it was an August day quite cool because it was along the water way.

The hike itself was pretty boring. Wish there was a better view of the river. Went down along the rapids on the way back and had a much better view and time. Definitely make your way down to the river to get a better view.

nice trail along the river. Lots of campsites. Just make sure to study the signs and maps before you go in. There's really no signs showing the Angel Falls trail. and look out for copperheads! lots of copperheads
