Very short trail to the waterfall, through the bookstore. You can climb on some of the rocks. Water is cold! Very nice waterfall.

Super easy trail. You will need to go through the Toccoa College bookstore and pay a fee to access the trail to the falls. It’s a gradual walk up the gravel and groomed trail to the base of the falls. Good for kids and dogs.

On a college campus but lots of parking. Closes at 5 so get there before then. Short walk over to the falls. Pay $2 per adult person at the gift shop before entering. Beautiful falls after all the rain we got and was even greeted with a rainbow.

Super easy for all ages. I didn't know that it closed after a certain time, so check before you go.

This was a great hike! My kids, 11 and 7, both enjoyed it. Our little dog did well on it. It was very muddy since it has rained so much. The waterfalls are pretty.

Beautiful Waterfall and very easy walk! $2 fee per person. FYI, call before you go as it is a wedding venue and we only had a little bit of time to see the falls as they were closing the area for a wedding! So worth the little walk!!

It’s a cool fall to go see or grab a peaceful lunch next to, but it’s a short walk.

A very short and easy hike! My only complaint was the hours! They are open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. But definitely check it out if you are in the area!

Super easy. Worth the $2 and the drive to Toccoa. Interesting history that I don’t remember, though I had spent the summer in Georgia in 1976.

As others have said not a hike, but a short walk to a beautiful waterfall. It was flowing nicely when we went. Well worth the $2 fee.

This had a pathway that was a very easy walk. Took no time at all. Not much of a “hike” but a very nice walk that leads to the beautiful falls!

Really just a viewing of the falls, not really a hike. The falls are beautiful though so well worth the $2 entrance fee. If you're driving up here, plan to tack on another trail as this one won't take you long at all.

Beautiful waterfall! I would not consider this a hike but it is a beautiful view. There is a $2 entry fee and you go through the gift shop to gain access to the path. Would be easy for any age.

NOT a hike. But still totakky worth it. Two beautiful falls (the second one is small and tucked behind the old hydroelectric plant) and the campus is lovely and idyllic. Easy and cheap family activity.

I would hardly call this a hike, but it’s very pretty and easy to get to. Just drive up through Toccoa Falls college and boom, you’re there!
