Waterfall on tributary of Brasstown Creek

GPS for waterfall:  34.71893, -83.30827

Water source:  Unnamed tributary

Height:  Approximately 50 feet in total

This three-tiered waterfall is probably not much more than a dripping rock in drier seasons.  The catch to this is that bushwhacking/creekwalking to the tributary in periods of higher water is potentially dangerous, since Brasstown Creek flows swiftly, and is usually very muddy, so there’s no visibility to see where you’re putting your feet.  Additionally, the bushwhack along the hillside is sketchy in places, being little more than rock face covered with a thick layer of leaves and dirt.  Extreme caution should be used, and experience with map reading and off-trail hiking is required for this hike.

Pictured from the bottom up are the three tiers:




Upstream from this beauty is another waterfall, approximately 25-30 feet high.  It’s not very photogenic, and there is nowhere to photograph it from the base.  For documentary purposes, here is the quick cell shot I snapped of it from the hillside:
