The Secluded 55-Foot Waterfall In Georgia Makes For The Perfect End To A Simple Hike

Nothing is more rewarding at the end of a hike then coming across a cascading waterfall over 55-feet high. While Georgia is flush with many stunning waterfalls throughout the state, this particular hike remains a great choice to spend some time outdoors. Not to mention the views just get even better once the leaves are in full color-changing-swing.
