Tucked away in the southern edge of Sumter National Forest, Brasstown Falls tumbles for 120 feet in three consecutive and equally dramatic drops. Relatively secluded in a portion of a scenic vale known Brasstown Valley, it’s a nice place to bring the family because of the moderate, 20-minute hike and calm swimming hole at the base of the upper falls.

Time to hike: 20 minutes to the bottom of the upper falls


1.) From Westminster, drive west on US 76 for 12 miles and turn left on Brasstown Road (Oconee County Road S-37-48).

2.) Drive 4.2 miles (dirt for the last 1.5 miles) and turn right onto FS 751 (just before the small bridge).

3.) Drive 0.5 mile on FS 751 and park.

4.) Follow the path (past the vehicular barricade on FS 751) that leads you beneath power lines and into the woods.

5.) Approximately 50 feet into the woods, another small path branches off to the right. You will cross the creek and afterward the trail will split into several paths, all of which lead you to the first falls and its calm pool.

6.) To view the lower falls follow the creek downstream, or bushwhack upstream to find the upper falls (Little Brasstown Falls).
