Waterfalls

Dukes Creek FallsDukes Creek Falls is actually on Davis Creek as it joins Dodd Creek to form Dukes Creek. For those not who do not want to take the 1 mile walk to the bottom of the gorge, there is an observation deck 0.1 miles from the parking area which has a distance view of the falls. The falls drops approximately 200 feet. The 1 mile relatively easy walk to the falls from the parking area is by way of switchbacks into the Dukes Creek Gorge. Steps are provided on the steep sections of the trail down. Upon reaching the bottom a 300 foot long walkway connects 3 observation decks which along with the walkway afford excellent views of the falls and shoals on all three creeks.

To reach the falls from Dahlonega head north on GA9 / Morrison Moore Parkway for 13 miles, then turn right onto US-129 for 7 miles. Turn left onto GA75-Alt for 6 miles, then turn left onto GA348 / Richard B Russell Scenic Highway. After 1.5 miles, the falls will be on the left.
