Ada-Hi Falls (pronounced Uh-dah`’he) located within Black Rock Mountain State Park in Rabun County, Georgia is the highest elevation waterfall in the state. Unfortunately, when a waterfall is this high in the mountains, there isn’t much water coming down so it’s more of a trickle than a rushing falls.
It is easy to get to the falls if you know where to look. A short hike down a fairly steep stairway brings you to the observation deck where you can get right next to the falls. The the quarter-mile Ada-Hi Trail is surrounded by mountain laurel, which may well be why the place got its name which is Cherokee for “forest”.
Though it is no spectacular drop of vast amounts of water, this serene little waterfall was a pleasant find. It is always nice to come across new things when visiting our State Parks. I also believe that there is a great amount of beauty in the small things in life when we take the time to appreciate them.
