This is a beautiful, easy hike to a beautiful, big waterfall. We saw lots of families with small kids here so it was definitely an easy Trail. It's very muddy at the bottom and I tried to sit with my tripod to take some good...More

Bear Gap Road is gravel and narrow in places. On one curve a new house is being built on the water which made it too narrow for 2 cars to pass. It's 1.6 miles (seems longer) to the small parking area on the left and...More

It is a short hike in the woods, but well worth it when you reach the falls. We had scouted it for our wedding but decided against it due to the hike. Very beautiful views though and the area surrounding it was a nice drive...More

The narrow drive on a dirt road to this waterfall is a thrill but the falls are worth every bit of the experience. Easy hike to a beautiful setting. Spent a good hour just enjoying the view... WORTH IT!!!

This was perfect! We didn't have a lot of time for a long hike and this short. 4ish miles roundtrip was excellent. Picture perfect. Parking is very limited and you drive along a dirt road for quite sometime to get there. But so worth it....More

My wife and I hiked the Minnehaha Falls after we spent the afternoon hiking the Tallulah Gorge. To gain access to this Falls is quite easy. It's a small hike compared to Tallulah Falls. The waterfall is beautiful and makes great for a photo backdrop.

A very short hike to an impressive waterfall. It's worth the drive along the windy dirt road. It's uphill all the way, but a very short and easy hike. We saw some people in flip flops on the trail as well as small children.

What a great find. This will go down as a waterfall my kids will remember when they are old. It's a true hidden gem with an amazing payoff. You can get into the falls and really connect at this location. We had the entire fall...More

The Minnehaha Trail (.4 mile) follows Fall Branch until it deadends at Minnehaha Falls which is approximately 100 feet high, falling and shoaling. Take U.S. 23/441 north from Tallulah Falls for 3 miles to the Rabun Beach... More
