Directions to:
Helton Creek Falls
Brief hike through a cool mountain cove to two waterfalls, both of which are on Helton Creek. An observation deck has recently been added in the area of the second falls.

From Dahlonega, take Highway 129 to Turners Corners and turn left. Continue past Neel's Gap (Walasi-yi) to Helton Creek Road on the right. Once on Helton Creek Road follow it for just over two miles. The parking lot is on the right.


The scenic route to Helton Creek Falls is from Helen. Take GA. 348 (Richard B. Russell Scenic Highway). At the town of Hood, go west. Follow this unnamed road. It fords two rivers and becomes Helton Creek Road. Continue down to the parking lot on left.

The easiest way to get to Helton Creek Falls from Atlanta is via the Georgia Mountain Parkway. At Blairsville, take US 19 south to Vogel State Park. Helton Creek Road is a mile after the park.
