High Falls is the largest waterfall south of Atlanta in Georgia and is a worthy visit for a day of fun. Take the Falls Trail for a manageable loop and great views of the falls at High Falls State Park.
High Falls – Trip Details
High Falls State Park is about midway between Macon and Atlanta in central Georgia. The thundering falls on the Towaliga River is a unique feature this far south.
You can also enjoy the large spillway dam at the base of High Falls Lake, with many swimming, boating, and fishing for hybrid and white bass provided by the park for the public.
The historic trail also takes you by the historic hydroelectric power plant and foundation of an old mill to explore the legacy of this bustling area in the 1800s before being bypassed by the railroad.
