  • It takes about 40 minutes to get to the trail head from Blue Ridge. This trail is only 4 miles from Springer Mountain where the AT starts. Once you get on Forest Road 58 it gets bumpy but take it easy...  more »

  • Nice, easy hike! Falls were nice, but not spectacular. Perhaps better weather and some blue sky would have helped. Make sure you have an SUV or drive very carefully. Lots of potholes and bumps in the road (not tarred)!
  • Pretty medium sized falls with a 1.5 mile approach from the pull in parking. Popular with families can be busy at the falls. Some rock graffiti slightly spoils the otherwise beautiful surrounding.
  • Beautiful hike along the AT & Benton McKay Trail. Sign posts are easy to follow. There's a path leading up on the right side of the falls to the top. Also heading back down to the road there is a unmarked path that leads to another fall that looks like little fingers. I ended up disturbing a nest of yellow jackets. I would suggest to observe from afar.
  • We visited after the Snowpocalypse of 2017 and it is magical. It is a fairly easy hike to the falls, although I'm sure there's more to explore in the area. Parking is really hard to come by without shoulder lanes.
  • Easy hike to falls. Nice view, not overly crowded or popular. Wish I could have stayed longer and explored area
