Added by Sean Morris

Hike to the most stunning set of waterfalls in North Georgia!

Starting with a scenic overlook of Yonah mountain and ending with three waterfalls, Dukes Creek falls is the perfect hike on any occasion. This easy 1 mile trail has spectacular views and is great for dogs and families. The trail is gravel and boardwalk the whole way and great for any age. The path leads through the forest along the river leading up to the falls. This hike is excellent for running, photography, or just spending time with friends and family(and dog) in nature.

Reviews

The dirt trail leading down to the falls winds back and forth a few times without any major views, but the gorgeous falls at the bottom are so worth it! Falls from above merge into a river fall from the lower forest, and it makes a truly unique scene! I loved capturing a few pictures of the falls! Was not overly crowded and had ample time to view the beauty. It is a basically all up hill trail coming back up, and although not at all steep, I would keep that in mind if you are taking very young kids to see the falls!

Pretty difficult hike down to the falls, it took longer than we thought it would. However, the falls themselves were pretty awesome and well worth the hike! I liked how the bigger waterfall seemed to just emerge from the forest above and spread out as it descended the cliffside. If you're in the area its definitely something to come check out! Parking was $5 for us.

We hiked the this trail recently with our 4 children and we enjoyed it. The scenery is beautiful! We will be back again!

Loved this hike! It was an easy one and led to some beautiful falls! There weren't too many people and we found a part of the river no one was at to let our dog swim and play fetch. Perfect day trip!

Falls were nice, moderate hike back up.
