#1 Get Fit! Fitness Hiking in the Mountains
Try Fall Branch Falls for a short, beautiful hike up the Benton MacKaye Trail. A double waterfall with Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron growing along the trail and creek bank. The hike to the falls is about 30 minutes round trip. In Blue Ridge, follow Aska Road south for eight miles. Turn right on a paved road (Toccoa Riverside Restaurant is on the left). The trailhead is about three miles on the right (.2 miles from where pavement ends).
Ready for more strenuous hiking workouts? Georgia's Blue Ridge boasts some of the most famous and challenging hikes in the South, including the famous Appalachian Trail which begins here. Our self-guided hiking maps are available here: Hiking Trails Access or Waterfalls.
