|North Georgia Waterfalls
Located just a short drive from Hart County Georgia are an abundance of
North Georgia waterfalls among the thousands of miles of hiking
trails. Waterfalls are one of nature’s most exquisite
features, and are a great place to cool down after a
long day’s hike. Some of the well-known waterfalls
include, but are not limited to the following.
Toccoa Falls is to the west of Hart County,
and at 186 feet it is one of the highest free-falling
waterfalls east of Mississippi. Cascading waters fall an
extra nineteen feet further than that of Niagara Falls.
Entrance to the Toccoa Falls in located on the campus of
Toccoa Falls College along a short paved pathway. A
small admission is charged for all visitors.
Falls offers visitors not one
waterfall, but four. Brasstown Creek features three
falls, while Little Brasstown Creek has another. Water
tumbles an impressive 120 feet down three consecutive
drops in a relatively private setting. Brasstown Falls
is known for its simple beauty and easy access. This
is a nice retreat from the real world for
families, as the hike only takes a mere 20 minutes.
Riley Moore Falls extends 100
feet and is 12 feet in height on the Chauga River. The
moderate hike along the newly constructed trail, which
about 45 minutes, is defiantly worth the effort.
If you are looking for a place to spend the afternoon
with your family, you might check out Station Cover
Falls. The falls is found at the end of an easy to
moderate 2-mile hike. Station Cove Falls is 60-feet tall
surrounded by towering pines. Station Cove Falls is a
great retreat, especially during the spring, when
wildflowers are in bloom.
