Fall Branch Falls Trail

Length: .25
Rating: Easy

Fall Branch Falls Trail offers a spectacular view of a double set of waterfalls as well as some great fishing spots.

Fall Branch Falls Trail is a short, quarter mile trail to a double set of waterfalls that also features a Georgia Game and Fish Wildlife food plot, fishing, mountain laurel and rhododendron growing along trail and creek bank. The trail follows the white diamonds of Benton MacKaye Trail. Beyond the falls, the Benton MacKaye continues turning sharply to the southwest ascending Rocky Mountain.
