Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the beautiful scenery, but they were not kidding when they said the walk up was strenuous. Be sure to bring your sneakers, walking stick and water.

“A natural wonder”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Great experience for the whole family. If you're not up for the hike or major stair climbing, there are park and walk options that provide easy access to the most scenic locations. Definitely a must see.

“Amazing and pet friendly.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Something fun to do with the whole family including our four legged members. Come prepared for a hike that means wear the proper shoes, pants, sunscreen, water bottles and walking stick for those that need it. You can even have lunch in the lodge at the very top and what a view that will be.

Parking and lodging available.

“Beautiful and Amazing”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Really beautiful falls..you can drive to the top and the middle of this falls. If you are with babies, driving is the option for you instead of the stairs. We went with 2 babies but would have loved to trek :). We plan on returning when the kids are bit older. Overall worth visiting this place if you are in the Dawsonville area.

“Its a workout”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It was $5 to get in and park the car. We didn't realize how many stairs there were! From the bottom they have a little fish pond and you walk up 125 steps until you reach the waterfall, which was beautiful. Then from there you have another 425 steps until you get to the top. Its a beautiful view, take pics just saying you made it & that's about it. They do have some vending machines and bathrooms. But I would take a picnic if you think you will get hungry. We just walked back down to our car and drove up the mountain until we found a lodge that you can eat at. They have pretty good food, but the view you get to look at while you eat is even more amazing!
