Challenging hike that was a lot of fun. Gorgeous scenery. Hiking stick recommended. Trail was easy to follow. Steep inclines. Parking at base is plentiful. Clean restrooms.

Nice hike, mostly shaded trail. The bathrooms at the trailhead were pretty gross, wife wouldn't use them. Trail is well worn so isn't too hard to navigate.

We visited Raven Cliffs Falls on a Friday afternoon. It was a hot summer day, but the 2.5 mile hike is heavily wooded, so it was surprisingly comfortable (just really humid). The hike isn't a tough one, but definitely not a good one for young kids or people that aren't steady on their feet (as there are lots of roots... More

This was a fun little hike. I actually went all the way to the top (be cautious, it is a climb for some). Lots to look at and you won't be disappointed with the final outcome.

Great trail, easy to follow. Access spots to water for the dog. Would definitely recommend bringing drinking water for hikers.

I took my two boys, 12 and 9. Great experience away from all the tourists. The trail was challenging enough to keep them busy but easy enough that we had some great conversations. Beautiful surroundings. We had a great time playing at the bottom of the falls.

To get to the waterfall is about an hour walk through rocks, camping areas, cliffs and more but it is worth the walk. You see a lot of natures great views. Make sure you wear the right shoes because if you want to get a great view of the waterfall looking down on it you will have to climb up... More

This was a 2 hour hike up the mountain and 2 hours back so you have to make sure you know that. The cliffs are in the National Forest and the trail is not exactly paved. The path is very rugged and does require a good amount of energy and ability, especially at the top of the cliff. Only the... More

Nice hike. It goes along a stream to a not that exciting waterfall. No where to swim, really. Not nearly as pretty as the walk to Anna Ruby Falls, but that is a short stroll, not a hike. It can't compare to the hike in the floor of Tullulah Gorge, 45 minutes away.
