Hike to Raven Cliff Falls while in North Georgia

Raven Cliff Falls TrailIf you are staying in Blue Ridge, Blairsville, or the surrounding north Georgia mountains, take time to hike the Raven Cliff Falls Trail during your stay.  There are plenty of waterfalls and rapids to view as you walk along this gentle trail.

Many small rapids in stream

The Raven Cliff Falls trail is located off of GA 348 between Blairsville and Helen, GA.  This hike is a relatively easy hike, with gentle slopes, 5 miles round trip. This trail is rate as one of the best short hikes in the state of Georgia.  Rarely will the trail will be further than 50′ away from the creek with its beautiful waterfalls and rapids.

The waterfalls that you will see while hiking are almost too numerous to count.  I think I was in waterfall overload by the time we got back to our truck, I think we just glanced at several and kept walking.

Hiking over a creek

I would recommend this hike for a family adventure while you are staying with us at Sundance Cabin Rentals.  The hike is slightly uphill on the way in, making for a very easy hike back out.  There is plenty to see and hear along the creek, be sure to bring snacks and water with you for your hike!

Along the sides of the trail, there were many varieties of blooming wildflowers for your amazement and enjoyment.  There are plenty of Rhododendrons along the creek, getting ready for their big show very soon.

Please keep an eye on your young children on this hike, there are plenty of exciting and interesting things that they will want to explore, some could be dangerous, depending upon their age and abilities.  Sometimes on the weekend, this trail can become crowded and finding a parking space at the Raven Cliff Fall Trailhead can be a challenge, but it is definately worth the drive.  This is becoming one of our family favorites, we will be sharing it with all of our friends and family who visit us here in north Georgia.
