The climb to Mingo falls is very short, and it did feel like much less than the half-mile described. There are a lot of steps at the beginning leading to a flatter trail portion, but it is totally worth the climb! The falls are beautiful and peaceful, and were even this way with a screaming child nearby. If you are in Cherokee this was definitely something you should check out that is do-able for everyone!
