The beauty of Georgia's waterfalls lures visitors from far and wide who come to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery, spectacular cascades of water in all shapes and forms, and a relaxing day in the great outdoors. Many of Georgia’s waterfalls are very accessible via easy hiking trails or walking paths that can be enjoyed by families with children and dogs and hardcore backpackers and hikers alike. Most of the waterfalls are set within well-maintained state parks, which provide comfortable campsites, restroom facilities, marked hiking trails, and shady picnic spots, making visiting Georgia's waterfalls easy even for the not-so-outdoorsy types. Pack a picnic basket, put on your hiking boots, and head into the picturesque wilds to check out some of these splendid waterfalls. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.

1.Ada-Hi Falls

Located in Black Rock Mountain State Park in Rabun County, Ada-Hi Falls are the highest elevation falls in the state. Meaning “forest” in the Cherokee language, Ada-Hi Falls are surrounded by dense thickets of rhododendron and patches of wildflowers and can be viewed from an observation deck at the end of a short yet steep hike. Boasting rarely more than a trickle of water in the dry summer months, Ada-Hi Falls are at their best in the winter after heavy rains, when the water tumbles over layers of rock down a steep descent. The falls are reached by a delightful walk through a moist, north-slope Appalachian cove, which features lichen-covered stones, mature hardwoods, thickets of ferns and wildflowers, and a dense forest of rhododendrons.
