Hike To Conasauga Falls

Conasauga Falls Trail  is a 1.5 mile (roundtrip) trail that offers quick and easy way to see and experience a beautiful  waterfall and enjoy a quiet day by the creek.


This nice falls is in the Hiwassee Ranger District of the Cherokee National Forest. From the intersection of the Cherohala Skyway and Hwy 68, head south on Hwy 68. Drive an additional 2.4 miles and turn right on FR341. Look for a large forest service sign. Drive about a mile on pavement, take the right fork and drive another 1.5 miles to a right hand turn. There may be a sign pointing towards the falls. This road ends after 0.5 miles at the parking area and trailhead. The hike is only about a mile and easy to moderate. It ends at this beautiful 30' falls.  There were plenty of smaller cascades and swimming holes.
