These falls are a hike supposedly for the novice,which they very well may be if you can get their it said it was 7 miles off the road we were on,but when we went the 7 miles the sign said it was another seven miles. After short while on the road it said the road was unpaved and hazardous.Huge pot holes everywhere and finely came to a area that the road looked like it split open all the way across and no way to go around. We were in a car if you had a heavy duty truck you'd be alright,I believe.

Closed at The Highway

We found the road to Horsetrough Falls blocked with a giant boulder just off the highway. If you call it says there was a bridge failure so it is not possible to get close.

4/22/20 road wash-out
Apr 2020
12:00-lunch Went about a mile up dirt road before finding a wide deep gully washed down/across road extending about 20 yards. If you don't have vehicle with high clearance , you might lose any lower trim / spoiler on your SUV (I drive a Durango) or car.Couldn't straddle or go L or R of trench w/o tree limbs scratching vehicle if one even tries to traverse,
TURN AROUND
Left here to go north to next falls trail (Blue Hole & High Shoals) only to find gate closed before first creek drive through.
TURN AROUND
went back South and hiked a mile on the Appalachian Trail and saw lotsa pretty native wildflowers in bloom.
Posted only to update--will go back after the CV gone :)

Horse Trough Falls

Whole this is a magnificent waterfall, if you don't continue to see Upper Chattahoochee River Falls you are missing one spectular waterfall. It is not a hike for everyone with the faint and sometimes almost invisible trail. Trees down on the trail making it even more difficult. I suggest if you plan to see it from it's base you take a fifty ft.rope. To visit Horse Trough Falls, although the campground is closed, take the road straight ahead, stay on the main road and it isn't far until you cross a wooden bridge. You can get a glimse of Horse Trough Falls almost straight ahead.

Horse Trough Falls in Georgia.
May 2019 • Couples
Did not make it to the falls. We took the Forest Service Road as directed but it was closed a mile or so from the Falls. We could have walked but opted to wait for the Road to be reopened to vehicle traffic. My understanding is the road has been closed for sometime now.
If you make plans to go there call ahead to make sure the road is open.

Check Ahead for Road Closed
May 2018
Call US Forest Service 706.754.6221 to check status.

FS Road 44 to Upper Chattahoochi campground and Horsetrough Falls is closed due to March storm & tornado.

These falls are uniquely beautiful and we will visit there again next year.

One more fall to see!

On the trip to Helen GA we tried to visit almost all the falls and every single one had its own beaty, I highly recommend to do all of them since they are all different.

Short hike to a tall falls
Jan 2018 • Friends
The gravel one-lane road to the campground parking area is about 5 miles from Hwy 75 via FS 44. From there, it is a short, easy walk to the platform at the base of this 50-foot falls near the source of the Chattahoochee River.

Headwaters of the Chattahoochee
Sep 2017 • Family
Beautiful to look at, but hiking to the top is for the young, fit and adventurous. Relied upon the excellent paperback "The Wayward Travelers Guide to Waterfalls and Back Roads of Northern Georgia" available on Facebook. Driving the almost 5 miles along the one-lane forest service road was an adventure in itself. Once you get to the entrance of the National Forest camp ground, drive into the camp ground and follow the road until you stop at the last parking spot near the circle driveway. Can hear the waterfall nearby. Follow the trail to the viewing platform. Hikers coming out of the trail beside the falls warned us the trail to the top was steep and narrow, but climbable. Me and my 8 yr old daughter passed on the opportunity. Worth the drive to view.
