Short hike to a beautiful waterfall.
This is an easy family and dog friendly hike to a beautiful waterfall less than a mile from the parking area south of Blue Ridge, GA, along the Benton MacKaye Trail
. The route takes hikers to at a platform which overlooks the water fall. Hikers can also continue on the BMT for a short stretch to reach the top of the falls.
Need to Know
There is no fee for parking.
Park along Stanley Creek Road (also known as Rock Creek Road) near the kiosk for the trailhead. Follow this short trail up a nicely graded uphill climb, then near the waterfall, the trail heads back downhill to the platform a short distance on a side trail off the BMT. From here hikers can view the waterfall. This popular route is family and dog friendly, but we do not recommend trying to climb up the face of the falls. Injuries have occurred attempting this. Keep your children under control if they are playing below the falls in the stream.
