Falls View Trail

Follow this trail along the side of the largest waterfall south of Atlanta, which cascades with tumbling whitewater over a span of 135 feet. This double looped trail takes you through a rocky forest alongside the banks of the river downstream of the falls. The forest floor is littered with boulders along the trail. The Falls View Trail head is located right across the street from our day use area.
