This 5 mile round trip trail is my favorite in the north Georgia mountains. It was a beautiful walk along the stream ending at a unique waterfall. Make sure you go up the last hill at the end to see Raven Cliff falls between the cliffs. I took my 7 year old, but a couple of steep spots and drop... More

An easy hike along tumbling streams with gorgeous rhododendrons (not in bloom on our visit in the fall, of course) as an understory and tall trees providing shade throughout. We arrived in the morning while many of the tent campers were still sleeping, some quite close to the trail. The falls themselves were diminished due to the drought, but the... More

This is our third time hiking Raven Falls. It is a must do each time we visit Georgia. It did not disappoint the third time around. Simply stunning!

The hike is approximately 5 miles round trip culminating at a waterfall cascading through sheer cliffs. There are a few places with steep drop offs but generally the hike is moderate difficulty.

If you just go to the falls it is just over 5 miles round trip, if you decide to keep going to the top of the mountain it will at roughly another mile. It is a good hike but is well traveled. I personally thought taking the challenge to hike to the top of the mountain was worth it but... More

Awesome hike. It's about 2.3 miles from the trailhead to the base of the falls and it is fairly easy. Nothing too treacherous or difficult, no terribly steep inclines. Just be careful of the roots on the trail, one of our hiking buddies twisted his ankle pretty bad with a misstep. So wear good boots and step purposefully. At the... More

A perfect hike to these falls. It took us, a group of 6, 45 year olds, about 1.5 hours to get there....at a moderate pace. It was nice, we saw just a few people....not too crowded.

Beautiful walk up to the falls and great time enjoying the view and scenery on the way up. Not a hard trail, but long 2-1/2 miles each way.
