Waterfalls

Amicalola FallsAmicalola Falls is located in Amicalola State Park on Hwy GA52 near Dawsonville, Elijay and Dahlonega. This beautiful waterfall cascades 600 feet to a reflecting pool at the bottom. A walkway which goes from the bottom to the top of the falls was completed late in 2001. A paved walkway begins near the reflecting pool at the bottom of the falls. The walkway passes along a series of cascades and about one third of the way up becomes a combination of viewing platforms and steps to the top affording spectacular views of this outstanding attraction. Parking is available at the bottom, at the top and near the middle of the falls so it is possible to start the walk from either the middle, top or bottom.

To reach the falls from Dahlonega head west on GA52 for 4 miles, then turn right to stay on GA52 for 14 miles. Turn right onto Amicalola Falls State Park Road, then take the first left to stay on Amicalola Falls State Park Road.
