Our goal is to see all of the Georgia waterfalls, especially since we live here. We love to explore the waterfalls in Georgia in the north Georgia mountains. There are an abundance in both the northeastern and northwestern corners of the state.
The mountains here are just grand and although the southern heat is scorching during the summer months, hiking shady trails along a stream always keeps us cool while trying to fit in as many waterfalls as possible before dusk.
And since the summer days are longer, we can't resist the opportunity to squeeze more trails into our day hikes.
Our waterfalls chasing in Georgia started on and around famous Lookout Mountain at Cloudland Canyon State Park. My dad's side of my family used to hold family reunions at this gigantically beautiful gorge in the northwestern portion of the state.
We then naturally gravitated toward the massive mountains of northeast Georgia, an area teeming with great cascades and waterfall laden paths, some on private land, but accessible to the public...and some on public lands and national forest trails with cool sounding native American names like Minnehaha Falls. That one always makes me laugh!
