  • Not a bad drive from Atlanta. For a newbie to hiking, this was an easy trek for my family . The falls are as beautiful as the pics and even more. Definitely worth visit in morning before the crowd...

  • This is a moderate climb and well worth it. The waterfall is so beautiful and such a surprise to find it hidden away. Just amazing.

  • The drive up was amazing. As I got closer to Minnehaha Falls, the road got narrower. Please be careful, you may have to wait for vehicles coming from the opposite direction. There was enough parking spots for up to 5 cars. I visited this spot on a very hot summer day. There was a very short trail up to this spectacular view. When I got to top, I was greeted by the breeze from the water hitting the rocks which made it a cool and breathtaking experience. You can go with your swimming trunks if you want to play in the cool water but please exercise maximum caution, it gets slippery. I had a great time, I'll definitely come back again.
  • It's really nice waterfall in Georgia, but drivable roads near to this fall is really narrow, though we'll maintained and there is no dedicated parking place...have to park side of the very narrow road. Sharing car will be better. Not wheelchair accessible. Really beautiful.
