Licklog & Pigpen Falls
From the parking area you will hike the Foothills Trail for .5 mile and
turn left onto the Chattooga Trail where you will get two waterfalls
for the price of one. You will find the 25-foot stack of Pigpen Falls and the
two-tiered, 80-foot Licklog Falls are much prettier than their names
imply. Interestingly, these two falls are among five
waterfalls you could visit by hiking the entire Chattooga Trail, which
should emphasize the steep and wild nature of this terrain. Even so,
this is an idea area for a family outing. .
Pigpen is 25 feet. Licklog’s first level is 30 feet and second level
is 50 feet
