Tumbling Waters Hiking Trail - Carters Lake

This trail climbs to Tumbling Waters, where it crosses the creek. The other side contains numerous trails that offer a look into the history of the area around Carters Lake.

Before we walk a trail, we check for other material about the hike. Whether the information is from the Forest Service, the Corps of Engineers, a local CVB, or one of the great books on hiking in the north Georgia mountains, there is almost always detailed information about a footpath. However, on this trail, none of the printed material covers the historical interest of this treadway that is painfully apparent to even amateur history buffs.
Entering at the marked trailhead in the boat ramp parking area, the treadway wraps around a ridge, about halfway between the lake and the top of the ridge on a steep hillside. The wide footpath crosses two small bridges (over normally dry creeks) on the approach to Tails Creek, then crosses it on a bridge about fifty feet above the falls. Before the bridge a side path leads to an overlook up the mountain.
