High Shoal Falls located in the far southern reaches of the Blue Ridge Mountains is likely the most spectacular and accessible waterfall in Towns County. The High Shoal Falls Scenic Area is comprised within 170 acres of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Within this region are cascading mountain creeks and streams, hardwood forest, seasonal wildflowers, natural wildlife and an abundance of Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron often lining both sides of the trail for some distance at a time.
Though High Shoals Falls are beautiful to behold and 1.2-miles from the primitive parking area, it takes some effort to reach this remote waterfalls (mostly on the upgrade return trip) and its sister falls called the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is made up of a series of five cascading waterfalls before reaching the 20-foot deep pool of the Blue Hole. High Shoals Falls itself is over 100-feet high pouring over jagged rocks often creating pockets of spraying water splashing off protruding rocks on its way down
