Brasstown Falls are 4 falls ranging in height from 20 to 40 feet. Three of the four falls are to the right at the fork past the trail head and the other is to the left. Hiking to the waterfalls on the right are no joke. The trail is an arduous journey downhill in which you will need to take your time treking. There are many tree branches to hold on to maintain your balance. The waterfall at the bottom offers a small swimming hole for you to take a refreshing dip after your hard work of getting there. The waterfall to the left of the fork is a much easier hike. The hardest part is walking across a couple of down trees which were sturdy and fairly easy traverse. This waterfall also offers a small swimming hole at the base. Directions to the waterfalls include turning onto Brasstown Road off of Highway 76. Brasstown Road will eventually turn to a gravel road. After traveling Brasstown Road for 4 miles, turn right onto FS 751. Park and follow the trail head to the waterfalls.

The falls are amazing! You can go further down to the falls it is very rugged! It is steep coming back and most of the time you do have to walk on the edge. It is a great place to take the kids! Be careful we did see a snake in the water close to where we were standing.

My favorite waterfall Trail ever. There are three waterfalls here in succession. You kind of have to scramble down a steep route dirt path if you want to see all of them but it is well worth it because the last one is my favorite. It looks like a wonderful place to Wade in swim in the summer. It is not a long hike at all you kind of park your car at the top and walk just a short distance and you’ve already hit a waterfall. There used to be a sign that said Brasstown Falls but it is missing now. Google maps should take you right to it though

Beautiful falls! More of a hike than a walking path. Don’t let GPS take you down Unity Church Road, the access road from that point is closed. Take 76 to Brasstown Falls Road. We did not have internet on our Verizon phones anywhere near here, so I suggest downloading maps before you go.

Short, easy hike to the falls but if you continue on it gets a lot more difficult and interesting and provides some great views of the double/triple fall

Short hike to the split. The trail to the right takes you to spectacular set of falls. At 70 couldn't go to bottom. To the left if you can't cross a log need to be able to wade across small creek.

Very short hike but right around the second falls in the series it gets tricky, a lot of root scrambling and very narrow, one wrong step and it’s quite a tumble. Beautiful falls and great little swimming hole at the bottom of the last waterfall

Amazing views and a fun hike. More a climb while holding on to roots but fun!

Absolutely amazing! Pictures don't do it justice. Short hike with several areas to camp and places to swim near the different falls. Only came across two other people, which we love the more secluded hikes so this was perfect! Lots of ups and downs, using rocks and roots as steps, might be difficult for kids or after a rain. Will def be going back!

Great and challenging short hike to three amazing waterfalls. The bottom one looks like it would be safe to swim in. The hike is challenging with lots of steep cliffs sides to climb across. We took our dog and she made it but I would not trust little children on this one. The site has lots of campgrounds. For a first time camper this would be a great place to start.

We love these falls. We spend a lot of time in Long Creek, so we visit these falls often. If you do the whole series of falls, you’ll definitely break a sweat.

Beautiful series of falls. Very steep, rooty scrambles moving down the falls but the payoff is worth the effort.
