Cane Creek Falls -Located on the grounds of Camp Glisson, Cane Creek Falls is open to the public during daylight hours except when camp is in session. You must check into the Visitors Center prior to visiting the falls.
Dicks Creek Falls-Dicks Creek Falls is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest just below the confluence of the Dicks and Waters Creek. This falls and the shoals above it are popular for wading and sunning in the summer, however care should be exercised when walking on the slippery rocks and under no circumstances should one dive into the pools.
Amicalola Falls-Amicalola Falls is located in Amicalola State Park on Hwy GA52 near Dawsonville, Elijay and Dahlonega. This beautiful waterfall cascades 600 feet to a reflecting pool at the bottom. Parking is available at the bottom, at the top and near the middle of the falls so it is possible to start the walk from the middle, top or bottom.
DeSoto Falls-The DeSoto Falls are located 3 miles south of us in the Chattahoochee National Forest DeSoto Falls Scenic Area. Trails lead to 2 different falls on Frogtown Creek. The lower falls is .3 miles downstream from the trail head, the second is .75 miles upstream. According to legend Spanish armor belonging to the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto or one of his men was found near here which led many to believe that the expedition passed through this region in 1540 in their attempt to find gold.
Raven Cliff Falls-The trail to Raven Cliff Falls is 5 miles round trip along Dodd Creek to the cliffs where the creek plunges through a narrow opening in the cliff. Along the trail to Raven Cliff Falls, which follows along Dodd Creek, there are several falls. This a pretty trail and is moderate walking through rhododendron and hemlock forests following the creek by numerous small waterfalls. However the trail becomes fairly steep near the end. The trail and falls are located within the Mark Trail Wilderness Area.
Dukes Creek Falls-Dukes Creek Falls is actually on Davis Creek as it joins Dodd Creek to form Dukes Creek. For those who do not want to take the 1 mile walk to the bottom of the gorge, there is an observation deck 0.1 miles from the parking area which has a distant view of the falls.
Helton Creek Falls-Helton Creek Falls is 4 miles north of us and is a must see while visiting the area. There are two falls on Helton Creek in the Chattahoochee National Forests. The upper falls, which has an observation deck is about 50 yards above the lower falls.
Anna Ruby Falls-Two falls, one on Curtis Creek and the other on York Creek together are called Anna Ruby Falls. A paved walkway leaves the Visitors Center and follows Smith Creek on a beautiful interpretive walk to the observation platforms at the base of the two falls. There is a cost of $3/person age 16 and over.
