As the park service says, it's easy to see why this is one of Georgia's most popular state parks, its name is the Cherokee Indian work for "tumbling waters" and tumbling they are. The falls are 729 foot and are the tallest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River.
An 8.5 mile approach trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,135 Appalachian Trail going from Georgia to Maine. And there are lots of other hiking trails within the park.
At the top of the mountain, you can enjoy a meal, a hotel stay and more spectacular views!
