    Great trail with pently to see a long the way. All the Pine Moutain Trails are blazed wonderfully. May is a great time of the year to go, all the moutain laurel was in bloom. This is a easy trail to do for a nice day hike.

    Great hike in middle Georgia. Trail is very well maintained and marked. The falls are nice but not as spectacular as the ones up north. Very nice hike.

    This is one of the best trails I have done in Georgia. it includes multiple waterfalls, stream crossings, interestng rock formations, and nice nice views. I found this particular trail guide to be confusing and incorrect in some cases. There is an alternate one on the site that is better.

    There are numerous wet foot crossings, so make sure you have appropriate shoes. If time or energy are limited, you can hike 2 miles in and back counterclockwise, and still catch most of the good areas.

    I hiked this trail in the opposite direction than is recommended, and it was really nice. All the pine mountain trails are so well marked, the blazes are almost like graffiti! I enjoyed it very much though, the water falls were quaint and beautiful. The section that has sandy, gravel soil has really small trees. Make sure you check out Ferney, the HUGE old pine tree that is next to the trail. There is not much climbing involved in the direction I hiked it.

    Great trail! Marked very well - plenty to see and explore. We started at the TV tower and hiked around the 6.7 miles. Once you hit the wolfden, it's all up hill, so be prepared. Plenty of nice places to sit back and relax -- nice streams -- waterfalls to filter water. Nice camping sites - Will go back again! Watch the slippery rock falls --- it did not get it;s name for nothing -- I learned the hard way. :-)
