Cupid Falls, Young Harris

When I was a student at Young Harris College, in 1988 and 1989, this was one of my favorite places. Years later, it’s charm remains. It’s one of the most accessible waterfalls in all of North Georgia, even if it’s barely over ten feet in height. It’s more easily seen from the small park above, but a short walk down to the creekbed affords this view. Ample free parking is available at the Corn Creek Preserve on Thomastown Road, which also features a couple of short trails, a children’s interpretive garden, and a marker commemorating the old mill which once operated here. (Be careful if walking down for this view, however, as the rocks are a bit difficult and always slippery).

It’s no surprise the name Cupid Falls was chosen for this small wonder of the mountains. It’s easy to imagine the appeal its seclusion and natural beauty holds for young couples. If you’re having trouble finding it, just ask anyone on campus and they’ll gladly point you in the right direction.
