I’ve debated for a bit about whether to post anything on Estatoah Falls, and I’ve decided that it’s worth it. Let me start by saying that this waterfall is on private property. There’s no way to get closer to the falls, and there’s not really a good place to stop and view the falls. One book I have mentions a pull-off along the road (GA-246), but there isn’t really any true pull-off to see the falls. I found that the best option was to turn down a road that comes before the falls. (There’s no designated place to view the falls there, it’s just not a busy road.)
So why am I posting about Estatoah Falls. Well, first, I think it’s a cool waterfall. Even from afar, this 200′ can catch your eyes. Just make sure to stay on the road. If it were accessible, it would be very popular…which is why I can understand keeping it private! And second, I don’t think I realized that Estatoah Falls is a continuation of Mud Creek Falls. Mud Creek Falls is also known as Little Estatoah Falls because it’s on the same creek. You can very easily visit Mud Creek Falls by heading into Sky Valley.
- From US-23, turn onto GA-246 heading east. After about a mile, if you look to your right across the fields, you should be able to get a glimpse of Estatoah Falls.
- I found that turning onto Kelly’s Creek Road allowed me to get a “better” photo of the falls, not that it’s the best picture. (Kelly’s Creek Road isn’t wildly busy, which is the only reason I mention it.)
Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Length of Hike: No hiking here (can be viewed from the road)
