Nantahala National Forest Secret Falls Poster
A favorite amongst locals, Secret Falls is a waterfall deep in the Nantahala National Forest just south of Downtown Highlands. A popular swimming hole during the summer months, this 50 ft waterfall on Big Creek plunges into a serene oasis before continuing down a second set of cascades on its way into Georgias Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. This “secret” waterfall has zero signs directing tourists to its location, making it a spot that rarely gets more than a handful of visitors at a time. Recently folded into the official Forest Service trail system as the Big Shoals Trail #402, its 0.75 mile length is undergoing several improvements including two bridge crossings and a new staircase leading from an overlook down to the falls basin.
