Waterfalls

Helton Creek FallsThere are two falls on Helton Creek in the Chattahoochee National Forests. The upper falls which has an observation deck is about 50 yards above the lower falls.

To reach these falls go north from Dahlonega on US19 21.5 miles to Neels gap. Go another 1.7 miles to Helton Creek Rd. on the right. Follow Helton Creek Rd. 2.3 miles to a Forest Service parking area on the right. About half of this distance is paved. The well maintained trail with steps to both falls is about 200 yards and not very strenuous. The walk to both falls is about 200 yards on a well maintained trail with steps on the steeper slopes.
