Bee Cove Falls

GPS for section 1:  34.97488, -83.05298

Water source:  Bee Creek

Height:  Section 1, approximately 40 feet

Bee Cove Falls is comprised of series of four separate waterfalls.  The trail is nearly 5 miles round-trip, and consists of logging roads, which then become steep and narrow trails to each of the four sections.  For Bee Cove Falls to look its best, it needs a long period of heavy rain.

Shown below is the 1st section of Bee Cove Falls.  To show the difference in water levels, the pic on the left is from January, 2017; on the right, from August, 2013, after heavy rains the month of  July.
