High Falls State Park is located about one hour south of Atlanta and less than
5 minutes off of I-75. The 1050-acre park also includes a 650-acre lake for boating and fishing, with renowned bass fishing. There are several waterfalls along the Towaliga River, with the 135-foot High Falls being the tallest waterfall in central Georgia. Trails through the park lead you along the river and provide lovely overviews of the falls and the remains of a grist mill, which used to operate along the river. High Falls was a thriving little industrial town with a cotton gin, shoe factory, several stores and the mill until around 1880 when a major railroad passed it by and it suddenly became a ghost town.

After a whirlwind 24-hour visit with our daughter, Nicole and her fiancé, Robert in Atlanta, we got back on the highway and headed for NE Georgia.
