Excellent hike

Terrific, long hike. Not difficult, but very scenic. Great for dogs and older kids. Would be beautiful any time of year.

This was my first real trail. I was born and raised in South Florida, so trails like this just don't exist down south. I was amazed by the beauty of it. There's several waterfalls before the actual Raven Cliffs and all of them are beautiful. The trail was easy to me. I had no problem navigating over little streams, and... More

Just hiked this 2.5 mile in and out trail this weekend. The entire trail runs along side a beautiful, bubbly creek which provides lots of photo opportunities and I'm sure it's heavily occupied in the summer with folks who come for a swim. Multiple small waterfalls are along the way, so you can certainly see some beautiful sites without doing... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the hike to the falls on such a beautiful day. The out and back trail was not technical but enough to feel you had done something.

It was kind of long for me since I'm out of shape. There are great photo opportunities along the trail. Once we got to where we saw the fall, we saw others climbing higher. Maybe behind the falls. We were not that adventuresome.

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
