Like many waterfalls, it provides a grandiose show and good photo ops, with a diversity of plants and animals around the falls.After you pass the sign that says “Desoto falls georgia”, you pass a few more farmhouses and then, finally, the sign changes: «Welcome to Jackson», it says, and “lanters” shoots up out of the ground next to it.

A beautiful area great for admiring striking waterfalls is Tallulah Gorge State Park. Tallulah Falls actually features six waterfalls that run down a deep gorge that plunges 1,000 feet. For a challenging and very rewarding hike, set out on the Hurricane Falls Trail. This is a great place to visit for aspiring nature photographers because you can cross over the gorge on a suspension bridge and snap some incredible shots. Another epic hike here is the Sliding Rock Trail, which is tough, includes rock scrambles, and leads visitors to the only natural swimming area at the gorge. Just make sure to stop by the state park office to get a permit first!
