Awesome place to fish or primitive camp! Don’t be sacred if you have an AWD or 4WD go as far as you can. Cool place, will definitely go back, take the dogs, fishing pole and maybe a tent and a grill.

About 25 minutes from downtown Dahlonega.

Wasn’t really a hike, or at least I didn’t see the trails. People were mainly there for fishing and swimming in the waterfall. Great area to swim around in.

I take the dogs here a lot and we hike/walk the road. Havent been past the concrete bridge by the small falls, but it's a lovely walk. Very pretty and easy. We usually park in the lot by the main falls and swimming area. I haven't come across an actual trail, just the road and a few defunct service roads. Bring water, trail snacks, and definitely a camera. The wildlife is spectacular.

The trail head was relatively easy to find, at a larger parking area on the right side of the road. We took off on the road and went along the western side of the loop. The trail is not marked and the best way is not always on the east side of the creek as shown by the red line. We got a bit confused after the creek came in from our left and ended up turning around coming back the same way - did not finish the loop, saw but did not get all the way to the falls at the head of the creek. We will go back and try again.

Not really a hike, although you can explore. Lots of fun. It was really dry when we went. We'll go back in the summer.

Not so much a hiking trail but a great place for fishing, waterfalls, etc.

The description is inaccurate. There is no signs for hiking trails nor did we find any. We drove almost to the end. The road leading in starts off as a paved road. Then it becomes a narrow dirt road. There are about 10-12 campsites. There is limited parking to visit the falls. There are several areas to go into the water. The largest area is by the falls and has a few places to jump off the rocks into the water.

There is a really fun waterfall to swim around in, and it also has a small cliff jump. But it is not nearly this far down Dicks Creek Rd, and doesn't require any hiking to get to. On Google Maps, this waterfall is called Water's Creek Falls. After playing around in the falls, we followed the gravel road farther up into the mountains, but never found this trailhead. We did however wade up Dick's creek, and that was really nice and relaxing. The falls are pretty busy on the weekends, but there was no one farther up the creek. There are also disbursed campsites in this area.

Primarily fishing and camping, but, Excellent for year round bushwhack. Just be careful of hunters, this is in the heart of Chestatee WMA. Oh yeah, be very mindful of Bears! :)
