The trail is great to walk up 10,000 stairs...ok it seemed like that many but makes a decent hike up to the face of the falls, better yet drive the loop and hike across and enjoy it that way!

No view of falls from trail but some very beautiful mountain views from several clearings along the way. Nice hike through woods and then a fairly steep rocky wide path for a section towards the top.

Easy softly paved path through hardwoods past old wrecked moonshine runner's trucks to the amazing water falls. Appropriate for any age, wonderful trail that allows everyone access to the beauty of Georgia's mountains! Highly recommended, will return. Stop at the visitor's ranger station for maps,...More
