Boyer Falls

Waterfall GPS: 34.68985, -83.30536

Water source: Boatwright Creek

Waterfall height: approximately 50 feet

It only seemed fitting to name this stunning waterfall on Boatwright Creek after my dear friend, Bernie. He’s a legend among waterfallers, and his contributions to the waterfalling community are without measure. This is a small way for Oconee County to say thank you for those contributions.

Parking: Going west on Highway 76, turn left onto Brasstown Road. Follow this road until the gate forces you to turn right, onto what the maps show is Glenrhoe Road. Follow this road to the very end and park in the cul-de-sac, GPS 34.69490, -83.30529. This is also the parking for the Waterfall on tributary to Boatwright Creek.

Hike: The hike is a bushwhack through relatively open forest. Map reading skills and experience in off-trail hiking is required. Mileage will vary depending upon your route, but it is a very short trek, though steep in places.
