While it's seasonal, Keown Falls is at the end of a nice hike. There's a viewing platform near the top of John's Mountain just past the falls to enjoy at the end of your walk too!
Keown Falls - Trip Details
The hike to Keown Falls in northwest Georgia near Calhoun is a 1.7 mile round trip hike up to the falls and back down. The trail is in good shape and even features a picnic area near the trailhead to enjoy.
There are some narrow and steep stairs at the top, which may make this hike a challenge for dogs or smaller children. But, it's not impossible.
You can even take a loop at the top where the trail intersects Pinhoti Trail and descend on the other side of the creek for a change of scenery.
