Beautiful place. Peaceful & quiet. Many different trail options for experienced & not. My mom has a disability & we were still able to walk to the falls on one of the trails.

We had Thanksgiving here with 23 family members. The cabins are lovely and convenient, and the meal in the Maple restaurant was perfect. The food was wonderful, and the service was great. The hikes and the views are beautiful.

This park allows you to see the top and bottom of the falls and both are gorgeous. Fall is the best time to go but the view is great all year round. The Appalachian Trail starts here and you can hike small trails also.

.....this is worth your time! Absolutely gorgeous work of Mother Nature and away from the hussle and bustle of the lives we live in the concrete jungles!

This is my favorite park to visit in North Georgia for several reasons, mostly because it's the gateway to the Appalachian Trail. The staff is helpful and the park is kept clean. The trails are visibly marked and well maintained. The lodge offers spectacular views and has a decent country style buffet ( one should arrive at early for any... More

My wife and I visited this park on 11-14-16. Very clean and nice, including the bathrooms at the welcome center. The Falls are beautiful and we could still see some leaf color at this late of date. View from the top was spectacular.

Beautiful and impressive falls. I recommend taking the trail from the visitor's center to the top of the falls. My wife and I are hikers and we found this much more preferable than taking the stairs.

Great trails options you can choose from. Great views and on the top of the mountain is a lodge were you can have lunch. A must do trip! And if you are not into the hiking thing, there is a road which takes you to the lodge. Having options is great since i thought i could do the hikes but... More
