High Shoals Falls: Discover A Secret Waterfall in Dallas, Ga

Until just this week, I only knew of the High Shoals Falls near Helen. That is, until my friend posted pictures of her kids playing in the waterfall…in Dallas! The very next day, we hit the trail! What a special treat!

Don’t freak out when you get to the address. It’s an old graveyard with a parking lot in front large enough for about 4 cars.  You’ll see a trail that runs in front of the headstones. Follow that down, about 1/4 of a mile. You’ll hear the waterfall before you see it.

There is a picnic table, and plenty of creek in which to wade. The water in front of the falls is perfect for swimming, and you can climb to the top of the falls.  There is more stream up there, but not much trail before you hit private property. This is more “water play” and less “hiking” … but still a load of fun.

We visited in the morning, but I learned from a friend that the sherrif likes to come around at 5pm to make sure people leave the area. My guess is because of the houses that back up to the falls.

Hope you enjoy!
