This trail is 2.5 miles one way. It took a couple of hours. The trail can at times be treacherous, because of roots sticking out of the ground, and drop-offs, so if you have little ones, you need to keep a close eye on them. But the entire hike is beautiful, not just the end. We saw several waterfalls that... More

Nice moderate trail without too much incline. You can go as far as you want and their are several falls along the way. Very pretty scenery.

It's about a 2.5 mile trek to the falls. Hiked about half way. Plenty of small falls on the trails. Nice fall foliage.

I've hiked this trail numerous times and am still in love with it. Very dog friendly. 2.5 miles one way so 5 miles round trip. Hike along the stream for most of the trail passing several beautiful waterfalls. Several campsites along the way (first come first serve). The trail ends at raven cliffs falls. Great place to sit and take... More

A moderate to strenuous hike to awesome falls! Cool pools at the base of the falls to refresh your feet. Don't miss this.

Amazing views secluded campsites! It was awesome to be somewhere that quiet... Until other campers showed up and decided to bring all the modern conveniences with them. Its nature don't wreck it man.

This moderate, five mile hike is very dog friendly. The best part is that it follows a stream with small waterfalls along the way so you don't have to do the entire hike to enjoy beautiful scenery. The trail ends at the cliffs, which have plenty of boulders to sit and enjoy the waterfall that is tucked in the crevices.... More

Well the adventure was a little different today…had a great ride over Burnt Mountain to Amicalola and Dahlonega then through Cleveland heading to Raven Cliff Falls. Highway 348 is a gem of a motorcycle road and I will be back with a different plan of attack…but today, it was all about the hike! Raven Cliff Falls is a state park... More

We love western NC for all the great hikes and beautiful waterfalls but I must confess, Ravencliffs is one of the best I have seen. The hike is 2.5 miles one way but it follows a beautiful stream. We went early and had it to ourselves. As we hiked out, though, we passed many visitors. At the end of the... More
