Long Creek Falls - Fannin County
Long Creek Falls – Fannin County

Creating a memorable experience for your family doesn’t take a lot of money or time. Have you ever thought about taking a Saturday trip to the mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia?  Well, being advocates of mountain living, The Mountain Life Team encourages you to “TAKE A HIKE”!  Yep, we said it- we really want you to take a hike with your family & enjoy scenic waterfalls within the boundaries of Fannin County.  The weather is getting better every week so now’s your chance to do a relaxing day of exploring one or more of the five waterfalls accessible by hikes of various distances. Waterfalls & Whitewater Guide

Long Creek Falls is one of our favorites!

An extremely popular waterfall in Fannin County is Long Creek Falls, which can be seen by hiking down a short side trail from the combined Appalachian/Benton MacKaye Trail. These falls total about 50 feet in two distinct drops. A leisurely 30 minute hike to the falls is uphill on the way in, downhill on the way out.  So what are you waiting for?  Grab your hiking boots & enjoy the mountain life!

Directions: From Blue Ridge, go south on Aska Road 13.5 miles to end. Turn right onto Newport Road, go 4.5 miles to end. Turn left onto Doublehead Gap Road and continue on this road about .8 miles to intersection with dirt-gravel USFS Road 58 intersecting sharply from right. Turn onto FS 58 and continue into forest and uphill 5.3 miles to Three Forks. Noontootla Creek, a beautiful trout stream, is on the right as you ascend.

You won’t be disappointed with the rich Blue Ridge Mountain heritage of your new mountain community. Plan your visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains HERE!
