Eleven miles from Long Mountain Lodge. From the trail head it is about a 1.2 mile hike to the waterfalls. Slight uphill to the falls. Long Mountain Lodge donated the double swing you will see when you get there and Boy Scout Troop 36 hiked it in and erected it. Follows an old logging road. The road continues past the falls, but we have not taken it yet. Will update this hike when we do.

From Long Mountain Lodge – follow driveway to Bull Creek Rd and turn left. At stop sign turn left on Camp Wahsega Rd.

Go 4 miles and turn left on Black Mountain Rd.

Go 6.5 miles and turn left on Jack Walker Rd.

Go 1 mile and turn left on Clayton Gooch Rd.  You will see a pull-off about 1/4 mile down on your left at an old logging or Forest Service road.

You will hear the waterfall to your left after about 20 – 25 minutes and there is a path following the stream leading to it about 100 yards up.
