When I’m on a waterfalling trip I’m like an energizer bunny, I keep going and going and going! Such is the case with this waterfall, Little Rock Creek Falls. Located off trail in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest the trail description to the falls said that it was only a little over a 1/2 mile "but would feel much further.” Well, it wasn’t kidding. By the time we’d reached the trailhead for this waterfall we had spent the whole day chasing them and quite frankly we were wore out, but the waterfaller in me said, “You are here. You must go.” There was about an hour left of good daylight, so myself and my good friends The Static Brothers headed out to the falls. Little did we realize that this one was going to wear us out completely, so much so that in the end it would be Karl Hassel and I who are the only ones who would make it to the falls. This trail worked hard to defeat us: ups and downs, steep slippery slopes, numerous downed trees that required weaving over and below massive limbs. At one point Karl just stood there on the trail staring ahead. “I don’t think we’re going to make it.” “Sure we are Karl! It’s just around the bend! Come on!” I said! And sure enough, just around the bend was the waterfall. At about 25 ft tall it was gushing, in fact it was way to much water, especially for 20 minutes before sunset in a secluded valley with towering trees. Setting up, we only took a few shots before we needed to run off. Light was quickly leaving us behind. We power walked back to the the car. It was brutal. Nevertheless, we made it back to the car in near darkness completely exhausted. I look forward to returning to this waterfall on a day it has less water and when I have more light, but for now this will have to do. Exhausting or not, it was well worth the adventure!
