    The trail is very pleasant to walk. I was only scared because the rattlesnakes, we are but none encountered. The Lake is really nice.

    Nice falls and walk to the shores of Lake George. There are many other hiking trails in the area that we didn't explore, but plan to on our next visit!  more »

    After a scenic drive down a dirt road, it's a short 10 minute walk to the Falls. A very scenic area, relatively peaceful and quiet. Recommend bug spray---mosquitos were everywhere.

    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.
