High Falls State Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"High Falls State Park covers 1,050 acres in Monroe County on the shores of High Falls Lake. The impoundment is formed by an old rock dam on the Towaliga River. The river derives its name from the Creek Indian language and translates as “roasted scalps.” Those Native Americans were known to scalp their enemies and used the area around High Falls on the river to dry and preserve those trophies.
Waterfalls below the lake drop almost 100 feet in multiple cascades over granite outcrops. These shoals give the area and the state park their names. This is an area of remarkable natural beauty and historic significance, with something of interest throughout the year, including spring wildflowers, fishing, fall colors, and bird migrations."
