#9 of 9 in Parks in Helen
Horsetrough Falls are located on one of the flanks of Horsetrough Mountain in Union County, Georgia. This 70ft waterfall is located on a creek that is part of the headwaters of the Chattahoochee River and is in the Mark Trail Wilderness. There is an observation platform at the falls which can be reached by the 0.4mi Horsetrough Falls Trail. The trail begins at the nearby Upper Chattahoochee Campground camping area, which is maintained and operated by the Chattooga Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The Eastern Continental Divide follows the main ridge line of Horsetrough Mountain and the water passes over Horsetrough Falls to begin a 500mi journey to the Gulf of Mexico via the Chattahoochee River.

  • We went here for the first time today, good bit of a drive to get there. I'd recommend a jeep or truck as the road is dirt and uneven. The waterfall is breath taking! Perfect for the whole family. Even a little spot for kids to swim in.
  • Easy waterfall.
