Beautiful place. Free parking. There are so many places to hike and see the amazing wonders of nature. It's so quiet here. I think it's awesome that they have horse trails. I wish we could have seen some today!

After the short mountain climb, it is a very flat and simple hike.

My favorite trail in GA. Took us about an hour and 30 minutes each way with kids. We took so many pictures! I can't wait to go back. We saw a bear on the parking lot.

Scull Shoals Trail

Went to the site last weekend. First, let me say the road to get to the site is NOT marked. The directions from this app attempted to send us to the farmer's field with the iron horse. Which was pretty cool. I had to pull out the gps to find scull shoals road. At the end of that is the site.
The location itself is pretty cool. Very overgrown and uncared for, but the ruins are neat. The trails leading from one building to another are non-existent, so after walking through the long grass (and dodging the spider webs) we located the old water mill. The only part that appeared cared for was the trail to the river where people had been fishing. It looks like a cool spot to wade and swim. The dog enjoyed it.
Even with all the issues, I would recommend the location as a neat side trip.

This is a fine approach to the AT. My daughter and I hiked it at about 6:45 pm, and then set up camp in the gap that night. I highly recommend combining this hike with the AT and Slaughter Creek trail!

This was a beautiful hike! I would recommend doing it in the winter or spring so you have some clear scenic views. The food was amazing (maybe because hiking 5 miles will make you hungry) and the staff was very nice. Make sure you get to see the sunrise. It's worth it! I look forward to making the trip again very soon!

Really beautiful trail. The flora was breathtaking and I loved walking along the river and seeing so many great waterfalls. There were a lot of people on the trail! It would be a great hike to do in the off season.

Went today and it was pouring rain. The trees made a great canopy and other than the mud, it was a great hike! The waterfalls were beautiful from the rushing river.

This is a great hike. First did it in the early 70s before all the "improvements". It was 5 star then since it didn't have the stairs etc. It is a much easier hike now still nice. Connects to the cabins now so it is a lot more people these days.
