Hike to Helton Creek Falls

Georgia Helton Creek Falls Trailhead

Added by

Take a short hike through the coniferous Georgia woods and enjoy the scenic Helton Creek Falls.

The trail takes you through conifer trees and rhodendendron flowers down to the Helton Creek Falls. The falls themselves are surrounded by lush vegetation which stand out against the neutral forest colors. You can view both the lower falls and the upper falls from this trail.

How to Get There

All Time Favorite

When it's not crowded this is the place to be. Driving down the gravel road and hitting the bumps are so much fun. If you're having a not so good day, head to Helton. You won't be disappointed.
