The 40-foot waterfall is made when Ramsey Creek empties into the Chauga River. This is an excellent location for a family outing as the falls are by the parking area of Chau Ram County Park which has sandy beaches, shelters, camping sites and a suspension bridge--the longest in the county. There are more waterfalls down river and well-maintained paths will lead you there. There are over 4 miles of hiking trails along the river.
