The area around McLemore is filled with numerous scenic waterfalls lined with trail access and viewing points for avid hikers and day-tripping family. Choose a waterfall, pack a picnic and enjoy the cool mountain waters of this beautiful region.
Singing Sisters Falls
Located within the McLemore resort area, Singing Sisters Falls is one of the areas least known and most beautiful waterfalls. With a drop of over 80-feet, Singing Sisters Falls is nestled within a sheer canyon on the west side of Lookout Mountain. Although access to Singing Sisters Falls is limited, it will become an integral component of the overall McLemore master plan in the near future.
Lula Lake Falls
When hiking at the core preserve at Lula Lake, there are three must-see locations. The first is the upper falls and Lula Lake itself, viewed from an old railroad bed dating back to the 1800s. This lake is as picture-perfect as they come, with a small waterfall feeding into brilliant turquoise waters. The second location is the lower falls, best viewed from the bottom after descending either a steep and rugged trail, or the new, easier trail. The sight of the falls dropping nearly 100 feet into a huge basin makes it well worth the effort.
Cherokee Falls & Hemlock Falls
Hike the popular Waterfalls Trail at Cloudland Canyon State Park. Descend the steep canyon walls via stairs to two waterfalls, Cherokee Falls and Hemlock Falls, that cascade in the beautiful, steep-walled canyon.
Lost Wall Falls
The Lost Wall is a bluff line that follows the east side of Pigeon Mountain for several miles. It's popular with rock climbers, and a trail follows the cliffs, passing many climbing access points. Only 0.15 miles from the trail's beginning at Rocky Lane, Dickson Creek comes over the Lost Wall and forms a 70-foot waterfall. During wet periods, free-falling Dickson Falls is one of the best waterfalls in the northwest corner of Georgia. The best part about it is how easily one can get to it! This hidden jewel is great for the whole family.
DeSoto Falls Recreation Area, located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, offers a couple of trails to view two different waterfalls along Frogtown Creek. This is a great way to see beautiful waterfalls on a short, family-friendly hike in the North Georgia Mountains.
Little River Falls
Little River Falls is located within the Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama, United States. It marks the beginning of the Little River Canyon. On April 8, 2014, the falls set a record water flow of more than 11,000 cubic feet per second.
