To reach the falls go north from Dahlonega 13.7 miles on US 19 to the paved Mt. Piscah Church Rd. (one half mile before reaching the junction of US19 and US129 at Turner's Corner) marked by a US Forest Service sign indicating Waters Creek Campground . Turn left on this road and go 2.6 miles to the falls which will be on the left.
Dicks Creek Falls is located in just North of Dahlonega in Lumpkin County (not to be confused with the Dicks Creek Falls in Rabun County). To reach the falls travel north from Dahlonega about 14 miles on US19 to Mt. Piscah Church Road and make a left. (There will also be a sign for Waters Creek , Campgrounds if you get to the T intersection with 129 you went to far, go back about 1/4 mile). Take Mt. Pisgah Church Road about 2.6 miles (last 1/2 mile will be unpaved) until you reach the falls, parking will be up on the right. The upper shoals after a heavy rain are liek a water slide ride and there is often people wadding in the pools of water. The lower area below the falls is often used by people as a swimming/wadding area. Be very carful as the rocks are very slippery.
This is a must see and easy to reach, less than 100 yards form the road/parking. Getting to the bottom of the falls can be a bit tricky, but nothing too difficult.
These shots were after a week of heavy rain and as you can see the water flow was exceptional.
I rate these as a 7 with a difficulty of 2-3.Dicks Creek Falls is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest just below the confluence of the Dicks and Waters Creek.

This falls and the shoals above it are popular for wading and sunning in the summer, however care should be exercised when walking on the slippery rocks and under no circumstances should one dive into the pools.
