“A beautiful piece of Georgia”

Raven Cliff Falls are located in White County, Georgia on a creek that joins Dodd Creek. The waterfall consists of three drops, a 60-foot (18 m) drop, followed by a 20-foot (6.1 m) drop into a deep pool, followed by a cascade of 20 feet (6.1 m) to Dodd Creek. The waterfall is an unusual double cascade flowing down through a fissure in a massive granite outcrop. There are also three other major waterfalls located on Dodd Creek, with the largest having a 70-foot (21 m) drop. Raven Cliff Falls is formed by Dodd Creek, a modest size mountain stream. The waterfall and creek are within of the Raven Cliffs Wilderness of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The creek is known as one of the most beautiful in northern Georgia. Raven Cliff Falls is one of four popular waterfalls in the Forest near Helen, Georgia. Two of the other waterfalls, Anna Ruby Falls and Dukes Creek Falls, are also in White County, while the third waterfall, DeSoto Falls, is in neighboring Lumpkin County.

Raven Cliff Falls Georgia — not to be confused with the one in South Carolina — is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Helen. It was on my bucket list back when my two boys were just toddlers, and I wasn’t quite sure if they would be able to handle it. But handle it they did, and it quickly became one of my favorite hikes in the North Georgia mountains.

The trail to Raven Cliff Falls is a moderate 5-mile hike, full of fun, awesome views, and a really unique waterfall. This family-friendly hike is a must-do waterfall hike in Georgia.

This was a very beautiful hike. The kids and I only made it the first mile and a half in to the first Falls before turning around with a broken shoe. There were plenty of spots to enter the water and splash around. Had a good time.

This was a beautiful hike. There were small waterfalls and running water all along the trail. It was fairly easy to hike the first 2.5 miles to the big waterfall. There is an opportunity to climb a root ladder enabling hikers to view the falls from above. The teenagers in our group had no problem navigating that, but it was a bit too challenging for others.
