On the shores of Lake Rabun, Minnehaha Falls is a nice easy hike best taken in the spring or early fall.
To get to the falls, you’ll hike a wooden staircase right off Bear Gap road (which is unpaved). Limited and free parking is available off the trailhead near this road. Rhododendron covers the landscape. The trail itself is only 0.4 miles, which makes it an extremely easy hike for beginners. Another plus is that it’s dog friendly.
