Lula Falls at the Lula Lake Land Trust is only open to the public for hiking on certain days, but the views are worth a bit of planning to take advantage of this wonderful resource.
Lula Falls – Trip Details
There are multiple trails to the lower falls (the more impressive of the two). One, is shorter, steeper, and more difficult. The second is much more gradual but significantly longer. The falls drop about 100′ into a large basin.
Before you go, be sure to check the schedule for open gate days. Since this is private property, during the week they host schools and private groups. On the weekends (usually the first and last of the month, though it varies), the property will be opened to the public.
The falls are not the only attraction. Visitors can enjoy the lake and several nice overlooks that take advantage of Lookout Mountain’s perch over northwest Georgia.
