There's a large shady rock at the base of Helton Creek falls that's a perfect place to keep cool on a hot day. Click here for directions to Helton Creek and to Anna Ruby Falls.
Anna Ruby Falls is very nice. It's a little bit of a hike but there's a paved path.
Anna Ruby and Amicalola Falls are probably the prettiest falls in Georgia. We like Helton Creek because it rarely attracts a crowd. Check out Angel Falls and Panther Falls behind the Rabun Beach campground. It's a 1.6-mile trail and a fairly easy grade. The ferns along the start of the trail are fantastic.
