Long Creek falls is a 1 mile hike in Fannin County Georgia. It’s slightly uphill all the way to the falls and downhill all the way back.
Long Creek falls is off Forest Service road 58
There’s a few parking spots on the edge of the road. There’s even a note on the Benton MacKaye/ AT (AT is hiker lingo for Appalachian Trail) sign assuring you that the falls is that way.
Optional: while waiting for your friends to arrive: Have a snowball fight with a snowman.

There are a few off trail additional little waterfalls.
