This waterfall is a free falling one, one of the highest in the eastern US. They are in a lovely little grotto, near a monument commemorating the flood that was caused by the earthen dam above the falls, back in Nov. 1977. The falls are on the campus of Toccoa Falls college, which itself is very lovely. One must go... More

Decided to go for a drive and ended up going to Toccoa to see the falls. Brought our two girls and they loved it!

Had a beautiful drive to Toccoa Falls. Enjoyed probably the last color of autumn. Went with friends. There's a minimal fee to go to the falls. $2 unless you are over 60 then it's only $1. One in our group had a walker. It's a short walk but is on gravel so it was slow going but she was happy... More

In 1977, after 5 continual days of rain, the dam above Toccoa Falls burst. This sent many millions of gallons of water onto the campus of Toccoa College, a Christian university located near the falls. Thirty nine people died, 60, injured---all connected in some way with the college. The dam was not rebuilt. There is a memorial plaque located on... More

Ok 2 bucks for entry is cheap. A short walk to the falls well worth it. Plenty of opportunities for pictures. Hard to believe its taller than Niagara! It doesn't take long so go while it's nice.

When I first visited Toccoa Falls as a child, we heard stories of star-crossed Cherokee lovers leaping to their death over this scenic waterfalls. said to be the highest east of the Mississippi. Later, the Gatehouse at the foot of Toccoa served as a meeting place for the DAR and CAR, where I spoke on the same podium as Zell... More

If you want to see a pretty waterfall, but not into a long hike, this is the place. $2 entry fee, a 5 minute walk and you're there. Bring the camera! The only drawback is you're not allowed in the water.

My husband and our 2 Golden Retrievers went to see Toccoa Falls. It is a very scenic waterfall and very easy to access. Just a short walk on a gravel walkway. Toccoa Falls College campus (which is where the waterfall is at) is a quaint Christian college and very scenic as well. It costs $2.00 per person to see the... More

Just like my trip, I'm going to make this short, sweet, and to the point. The Falls are absolutely gorgeous, however if you are looking for a nice long walk to see several falls "this attraction is not for you", on the other hand if you want to take a breather from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and...
