  • This falls is qualifies as a hidden gem. Use Google maps (our GPS didn't have it), and you'll drive right to it, though the sign and the arrow are a bit obscure. The "hike" was more of a walk with a s...  more »

  • This was a great short hike to really beautiful falls. There were plenty of rocks to climb at the end. We drove over from Blairsville and found the drive through lake country to be really picturesque....  more »

  • Easy trail! A little hard to find if you don't know where you're going. Do some research beforehand. Awesome waterfall
  • It was very easy and short hike to get to the actual waterfall. It wasnt enough to just see it from the bottom so I treked up to the top very carefully. It's easy to slip on the rock and its a steep climb up but worth it. The climb down was more challenging though. It was nice and relaxing to sit up there and listen to the sound of the water.
  • Secluded and a beautiful easy hike. So peaceful once you reach the falls. Not handicap accessible.
  • Very nice place for a private trip to a waterfall that is free and not too far.
  • Look for stairs with 2x4 railing. Park along left side. Short steep walk up to falls. Good for kids. Get there before noon..parking can be tricky.
