Unique falls between the rocks. Hike itself is very nice by the water most of the way with lots of other small falls to look at on the way. Loved that the incline was minimal. Although it's about 5 miles round trip it's not a strenuous hike. Some up and downs, rock skipping over the creek several times and a... More

This is about a 6 mile hike to the end and back, but worth every minute of it: lush Woods, River sounds and several small, yet scenic waterfalls before the "Grand Finale"- Raven Cliffs itself!

We, a group of four college students, had a blast hiking this trail! To preface our review, I will say that one in our group was more experienced; the rest of us were new to mountain hiking. The trail took us four hours total, including a slow ascent, a long lunch, exploring the waterfalls, a quick descent, and of course... More

Excellent hike, about 2.5 miles in then retrace the trail back. The trail follows an active creek with small waterfalls and pools. No fee for parking. Moderate hike with some topography.

Those reviewers who state the falls at the end were "unimpressive" didn't climb high enough. We had been told by another hiker that it was worth "going as high as you can go" and although at the end of the trail you're left with slick clay and rocks, if you go beyond the area where most simply stay for photo...

Falls are breathtaking, hiking is pretty easy, and the views on the road are worth spending effort.The part after dodd is a little less adventerous, but reaching to the falls is the best reward! Also, crossing over the river at falls is not worth it, the side that trail gets you is safe,prettier and magnificant. Do climb over the rocks... More

This is a 2.5 mile hike one way. About 1.25 miles in there will be a beautiful waterfall. The creek was also very nice and soothing. The major waterfall, Raven Cliff, was unimpressive. Though it could just be due to lack of water, but it was not worth the hike to the fall.

Great trail that passes 6 waterfalls until it ends at Raven Cliff Falls, a unique place. Not strenuous but the entire walk is nearly 6 miles. My favorite trail in Georgia.

This was a nice trail to walk. I have some knee problems so I probably went slower than most so it took us about 3 hrs round trip. Not much climbing just a steady slight incline. Lots of roots & rocks on trails but manageable. Would be too long for my boys to go the whole way but I saw... More

My husband and I hiked this trail after it was recommended by a friend. Absolutely loved it! The falls are beautiful! We hiked to the very top and sat on the top of the rocks and enjoyed a snack ( I don't recommend that for everyone, its very strenuous to the top). The main hike to the falls were moderate... More
