This waterfall is defended by intensely sincere faculty, staff and students of Toccoa Falls College. It's a little creepy for your average hiker because you have to access the extremely brief walk to the falls via a gift shop. It's a very pleasant gift shop, with a bathroom no less, but it's still a creepy way to access a waterfall. I think you're supposed to pay to access the falls, but the really nice girls working the store told me it was free that day because there was a sporting event on at the school. So i bought a $2 postcard by way of compromise.
For all that bother, Toccoa Falls really is one of the best waterfalls in a land of many, many waterfalls. The photos can't do it justice, if you have the opportunity, do no not miss it.
