NORTH GEORGIA WATERFALLS
Numerous waterfalls can be viewed in the North Georgia Mountains. A definite must see is Amicalola Falls but there are so many beautiful waterfalls located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Each waterfall has its own beauty and uniqueness. The scenic drive and the hike each of the waterfalls offers a memorable adventure. Be sure you bring our camera to capture the spectacular beauty and remember the experience. In the summer, you may be able to cool off under a waterfall.
The North Georgia Mountains are covered with some of the most beautiful waterfalls. Many waterfalls can be accessed by a short walk on a well maintained trail. Your efforts will be rewarded with a beautiful picturesque waterfall as you near your waterfall destination. Some waterfalls have cooling pools of water where you can wade, sunbathe and have a picnic lunch.
LONG CREEK FALLS. Picturesque falls and trail. Requires a 20- to 30-minute walk in each direction.
Directions: From Blue Ridge follow old US 76 to Aska Road across from Harmony Church. Turn south and go 13.8 miles to the end of the road. Turn right on Newport Road, and go 4.3 miles to the end of the road. Turn left, cross bridge over Noontootla Creek, continue on gravel road. Pass a cemetery and come to an intersection .6 mile from the bridge. Turn hard right on FS 58 and go southeast into the forest along this road 6.6 miles to Three Forks. Hike to the northwest up Long Creek to the falls. The trail corridor has an assortment of blazes designating three major hiking trails: the Appalachian (white vertical, 2 inches by 6 inches), the Duncan Ridge National Recreational Trail (blue vertical, 2 inches by 6 inches), and the Benton MacKaye Trail (white diamond, 5 inches by 7 inches). The distance to the falls is 1.1 miles, ascending gradually along the way. A side trail to the falls is indicated with vertical blue blazes. ]
FALL BRANCH FALLS. A fine double waterfall.
Directions: From Blue Ridge follow old US 76 to Aska Road. Turn south and go approximately 8.2 miles to the intersection with Stanley Creek Road, entering from the right. Turn right onto Stanley Creek Road and go 3.2 miles to a small parking area just beyond an interesting farm owned by longtime Forest Service fire warden Garfield Stanley. Cross a wooden bridge over Fall Branch and park on the right. Hike up the hill on the Benton MacKaye Trail to double falls on the right. There is a small picnic and/or camping spot 30 yards above the waterfall.
SEA CREEK FALLS.
Directions: From Blue Ridge follow old US 76 east 5 miles to the intersection with GA 60 South at Lakewood Junction. Continue 14.7 miles south on GA 60 through the small town of Morganton, past the entrance to Deep Hole Recreation Area, to the junction with FS 4 on left. Follow FS 4 an additional 3.3 miles to a right-hand curve in the road just inside the U.S. Forest Service boundary. The road to the immediate left before curve is the access to the falls. Park in the area at the end of this spur (about .3 mile) and walk upstream 150 feet to view the falls.
LITTLE ROCK CREEK FALLS. There is a series of small falls just before reaching the main one. The walk is strenuous on a footpath leading along the left side of the creek and going only part of the way to the falls. Go no farther than this because of the dangerous, slippery rocks in the area.
Directions: From Blue Ridge follow the directions above for Sea Creek Falls, but only as far as the crossing of Skeenah Creek on GA 60 South. Skeenah Creek is located about 11.3 miles south of Morganton. There is an old but still-operational mill on the northeast side of the highway. A commercial campground is also located on this site. After crossing Skeenah Creek, continue south on GA 60 another 3.1 miles to the intersection with FS 69, Fish Hatchery Road, on the right. Turn onto this road and go about 3 miles to where the road crosses Little Rock Creek. There is a bridge and a small pull-out area here.
