Waterfall Hikes are the most requested hikes on Georgia Trails. Here is a list of the hikes that include a waterfall of one kind or another. Noted waterfalls include the Sweetwater Creek falls, more of a cascade over a rocky area. This area is created by the Brevard Fault line, the most active fault line in the world. It is virtually unknown, even in Georgia, because the earthquakes generated by the fault barely budge a seismograph.
