Trahlyta Falls, Georgia

Trahlyta Falls (2)

Trahlyta Falls in May 2012

I don’t exactly remember how I stumbled upon Trahlyta Falls, whether it was a planned stop or whether I just noticed it out of the corner of my eye. I feel like it might have been the latter, but the visit was over 7 years ago, so it is a bit fuzzy.

Trahlyta Falls is found in Vogel State Park in northern Georgia downstream from Trahlyta Lake. I only visited this falls for a few moments as I pulled off US-129 to take some photographs (or at least that’s what I recollect). If that’s frowned upon, I wouldn’t suggest it, but I didn’t find much difficulty in pulling safely to the side. Looking now, I find that there is a trail down to the falls called the “Falls Bottom Trail”. I don’t know exactly where it starts because I didn’t follow it. In the photo, you can notice that there are stairs and a boardwalk/viewpoint right near the base of the falls. So if you want a closer view of a very nice waterfall, you might want to explore that option!

Directions:

  1. Vogel State Park can be found essentially at the intersection of US-129 and GA-180. Trahlyta Lake is sandwiched in between those two roads.
  2. If you wanted to view the falls from where I did, you would head a bit south of that intersection along US-129 until you can see the falls. As I mentioned, there is a hiking trail that leads to the base, but it doesn’t start from where I viewed the falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 80′
Length of Hike: roadside (though you can hike to the base)
