Parking:   Going north on Highway 107, turn right on Winding Stairs/Cheohee Road Falls.  Drive for approximately 3.2 miles and park on the left in the parking area, GPS 34.92236, -83.07755.

Hike:  A long-range view of Secret Falls can be seen from the Winding Stairs trail in the wintertime.  From the parking area, hike approximately 1 mile.  You should hear the waterfall and see it ahead/to the left.

This waterfall, along with all of the waterfalls on Crane Creek are extremely difficult to reach (with the exception of Lower Crane Creek Falls), and should not be attempted by anyone who does not have a lot of experience in off-trail hiking and map reading.

Also on Crane Creek, you will find Deadfall Falls, Prospector Falls, Yellow Jacket Falls, Crane Creek Falls, and Lower Crane Creek Falls.
