Dukes Creek Falls

Perfect Fall Hike: Dukes Creek Falls

10Nov

The gorgeous fall colors in Georgia are close to reaching their peak, which makes it a fantastic time to explore the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. One of our favorite hikes is Dukes Creek Falls, which is located about a 20 minute drive from Dahlonega Spa Resort.

This moderate hike is approximately 2 miles round-trip on a gradual trail that features several large wooden viewing platforms. The trail ends at the majestic trio of Duke Creek Falls, with the largest one dropping down 150 feet from a tall wooded cliff into the clear waters at the convergence of Davis Creek and Dukes Creek. It’s the perfect spot to take a moment to drink in the many wonders of Mother Nature and our beautiful Georgia surroundings!
