Explore the most popular trails in High Falls State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

In the early 1800s, the site was a prosperous industrial town with several stores, a grist mill, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, shoe factory and hotel. High Falls became a ghost town in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, park visitors can enjoy the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River and hike to the remaining grist mill foundation. A campground, picnic areas and canoe rental are also available. This pretty park in middle Georgia is conveniently located near I-75 and makes a restful side trip for travelers. For visitor safety, swimming is allowed in the pool only, but not the river or falls. Numerous rocks submerged in the river have deep holes eroded in them, and these can easily trap or injure someone.

This is a fabulous trail. Beautiful views, good exercise and well marked. Highly recommend!

Brought my dog with me and we really enjoyed hiking this trail. It’s not too hard and not too long but has very nice views. I went early in the morning and there was hardly anyone there.

Nice and easy trail. Great for those who like to have a chat while hiking.a few places to sit near the falls and have a peaceful experience.

Dont go on the rocks, the warns are real. witness an experienced hiker lose their footing and got cut up. There are many small broken shells all in the water that may act like razors.

This was a nice short hike with stunning views of the falls. We went early in the morning on a Saturday and by the time we were leaving the trail was starting to get busy. We took our 50 pitbull mix and she handled the trail fine and she couldn't resist jumping in the water. This was the perfect spot to try out our new hiking gear before embarking on longer treks in the Smokies.
