Waterfall Description: The scenic two-mile trail leading to Hemlock Falls teases visitors with the sounds of rushing water during the entire hike. The beginning of the trail looks down into Moccasin Creek while smaller falls created by branches entering it allow for multiple scenic stops along the way. After arriving at Hemlock Falls, hikers can relax in the shade by the pool at the base.
Directions: From Clayton take 76W to HWY 197. Follow HWY 197 to Moccasin Creek State Park/ Lake Burton Fish Hatchery, turning right onto Andersonville Lane, the gravel road across from the hatchery. Continue 0.5 miles until the road dead ends at the trailhead. Follow the trail along Moccasin Creek. You will cross a bridge above one set of falls and will pass another small set of falls on your left before continuing up the trail to the larger Hemlock Fall.
