I have had the good fortune to spend a decent amount of time in North Georgia, and Hemlock Falls is hands-down my favorite hike. It's super easy and pretty short. The falls at the end of the trail are really pretty, but there are equally pretty spots all along the way. I can't wait to go back and spend more time on this sweet little trail.

Wonderful trails, very well maintained. Beautiful falls and fun swimming pools. Everyone we met was friendly even the dogs!!! There were many kids there, all ages.
On the way out, we were told we just missed a rattlesnake! Thank God it was on the way out or I would have missed a wonderful hike!

Awesome trail! Good for all skill levels with perfect views of the rapids and waterfalls along the way. As with any trails in north Georgia, look out for snakes.

Great trail!! Lots of places to jump in the river. Shaded to avoid the heat and a wonderful rest spot at the end with the waterfall. Kids loved it, aged 5-12.
