A beautiful, short(@1.8 miles in and out) waterfall hike in North Georgia on Frogtown Creek in the Chattahoochee National Forest and designated the DeSoto Falls Scenic Area. The Falls are on Rocky Mountain(not to be confused with the Rocky Mountain North of Unicoi Gap on the Appalachian Trail)

Trails to the upper and lower falls are clearly marked.

There is actually an upper Upper Falls that extends from the upper falls trail but The Forest Service now has the old trail marked as being under natural restoration, so highest falls are unreachable. Wink, wink; Nudge, nudge.

Some photos and video:
