#Waterfalls and #Wildflowers – Toccoa Falls

My wife and I were passing through Toccoa Falls, Georgia on Saturday, March 22, heading back home from Devil’s Fork State Park in South Carolina, and decided to stop in to see the namesake waterfalls.  My sister had attended Toccoa Falls College in the 1960’s, and a friend of my daughter’s family from Papua New Guinea is attending there now, so we knew the waterfalls was on the campus of the college.  We stopped at the guard’s gate for directions – straight down the road until we come to the gift shop in the Gate Cottage.  Access to the falls is through the gift shop, paying a small fee – $2 for most adults, $1 each for those of us over the age of 60.  A short walk of about 100 yards up a nice trail along Toccoa Creek brings you to a view of the 186′ waterfalls.
