  • This waterfall is not to be missed. I went in the offseason and it wasn't crowded. As the other reviewers said, the drive is a little long and your are on the dirt road for awhile, but after the bridg...  more »
  • it was a long drive in to find the trail head. We parked at the parking lot w a trail head that says .4mi. It was a little shorter than we expected. We hiked the .4 mi and saw the top of the fall. But...  more »

  • Great views for a short walk. 1.7 miles one way took about 35 minutes up and 30 minutes back down. The trail is well kept and easy to walk. The trailhead is about a 45 minute drive from Lake George, the same start for Black Mountain. The drive there takes you on a dirt road for the the last 20 minutes of the drive. Great short hike altogether!
  • A bit hard to find the falls trail, but well worth it. Short level trail... Until you get to the falls. Then it gets a little steep and slick. Might be able to get across, but life don't come that cheap to this fella!
  • Beautiful little hike along the shore of Lake George, leading to an even more beautiful waterfall. You can stand along the top of the fall, as well as walk to the base, where we spend some time enjoying the sights and having lunch.
  • An easy walk to the top of shelving rock, but no views or great spots. If it gets you out of the house for a little while I think its good. We did the entire trip to the top and back in under two hours.
  • Great easy walk for the young and the old. Make sure to go to the lakes edge and bring a bathing suit, the area in the lake is a large sandbar that local boaters hang out and have a good time so jump in and join in with them!
