Gurley Creek Falls

The Gurley Creek falls drops 220 ft. Most of that drop can be seen from the observation deck to the right of the creek which is within a 5 minute walk from the Visitors Center of the Enota Mountain Retreat and Conference Center. A trail to the right of the lodge and the left of the creek is marked by a cute bear cut out pointing the way. Follow the creek to the base of the waterfall up a very steep trail about half a mile up. The walk is well worth the trek as you will see rock outcroppings, beautiful wildflowers, and native pants along the way, plus you will be rewarded by a beautiful cascading waterfall.

The Enota Retreat & Eco Village is private property so you should obtain permission at the Visitors Center to visit the falls. Better yet spend the weekend in one of their cabins or campsites. At the very least please patronize the establishment by buying a snack at their country store which also has a nice selection of hand made musical instruments and other collectable's. Nearby is the access road to Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest peak. You should also check out Joel Creek Falls also located on the Enota property.
