There are so many fabulous natural wonders to discover, scattered around our state of Georgia. There’s one that springs to mind when the summer heat makes its return to the ATL, and that’s Blue Hole Falls. Located on the High Shoals Falls Trail in Hiawassee.
With two of Georgia’s beautiful waterfalls nestled in this super-green fraction of the peach state, hikers and visitors are in for a treat, so make sure to pack that camera for some gorgeous snaps of these Georgian cascades! However, make sure that you definitely pack items for swimming, as there’s a beloved swimming hole on the trail.
The inviting pool under the waterfall is the perfect pilgrimage to beat the heat this summer, with temperatures of 40-50 degrees all year round. As one of the many hikes boasting waterfalls in Georgia, this trail has become an anticipated part of the warmer months for many Atlantans.
There’s also an abundant forestland and spectacular natural landscapes throughout the hike. And if hiking isn’t your thing, the trail isn’t far away from Helen, a hotspot for river tubing and shooting the hooch throughout the summer.
