Easy hike to a beautiful secluded area great place for a picnic. If your looking for a little more of a work out there is a steep more strenuous trail leading from the bottom to the top of the falls. Not sure how far it goes after that.

Very easy, short walk to the falls and it was a stunning view. The kids will be able to do this one with no trouble.

The hike to the falls is pretty short and not too strenuous. There is a wooden sign at the start of the trail to point you in the right direction. The falls are beautiful and definitely worth the short hike!

Once you find the trail on the road it is a pretty easy hike to the falls. They are very pretty and a good place to take a picnic lunch.

Had to follow explicit directions to find this place, but it was surely worth it. We were glad that we went during the week, as it would be difficult to get here & back with traffic in both directions. Short hike to the falls, just lovely!

A waitress told us we had to give this waterfall a look and we took her advice. It was the right choice! The drive to the trailhead is truly a treat in itself. The curvy drive around Lake Rabun with unique houses is worth the trip alone. The trail is on the right side of the road signified by stairs.... More

Take Low Gap road to Bear Gap road for about a mile and a half, park on the left, set of steps to your right. Take steps to easy 1/4 mile trail, loved the falls with lots of flat rock for sitting and viewing. Water level was low when we visited so we we're able to sit right next to... More

Minnehaha Falls is well worth the search for it & the short hike to it. It is definitely off-the-beaten-path! There is very little signs showing where it is and very little parking! Walking down the tree rooted path, you find the stream which puts you in mind of a babbling book. The end of the path opens up to a... More
