We completed the 7+ mile hike and it was beautiful. The rating by the Forest Service was moderate-difficult. I agree with that! From the very start, you make a steep climb to the top of the mountain and follow the ridge. The hike is a loop and you return on the Forest Service Road which must have been the moderate part. The area surrounding the swinging bridge is beautiful with huge Mountain Laurels and Rhododendrons. The river views from the bridge are stunning. There is a nice little stream coming into the river close to the bridge. The bridge is not scary to walk across. You can take the easy route by driving the Forest Service Road and parking 1/4 mile from the bridge. If you walk the 7+ mile loop, you might want to plan on 4 - 5 hours if you want to spend some time at the bridge. If you drive to it, you can see everything in less than an hour. It would be a nice place for a picnic lunch.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are an incredibly beautiful and wonderful area to explore and enjoy. From the most excellent motorcycling roads in the country to great places to hike and explore nature's finest, the Blue Ridge offers it all.
My children have grown up hiking the many trails, visiting waterfalls, mountain tops, and navigating along streams and cliffsides, we have taken advantage of these old and majestic mountains, the small towns, as well as the hidden coves and bald top mountains.

Me and my boyfriend rented a cabin from Mountain Laurel Cabin Rentals in Blue Ridge, Georgia for a weekend getaway.
We had a beautiful cabin, with the most beautiful mountain views, with a hot-tub overlooking the mountains and had the most wonderful weekend!
The cabin was so beautiful, and the price was low for such a beautiful cabin!
I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a nice, romantic getaway with wonderful prices and beautiful cabins!
We are now planning our summer family vacation, and I am planning on using this company again!

Our family loves taking an annual vacation in Blue Ridge. Lots of great outdoors things to do. We always rent from Mountain Laurel Cabin rentals. We rent a different cabin each time and have never been disappointed. Each time we're visiting we make sure to stop at Mercier Orchards, Blue Jeans Pizza and Amicalola Falls State Park.
