"With steep cliffs, waterfalls, rushing streams, and exotic forest, Panther Creek ranks as one of Georgia’s most beautiful hiking paths. Since it’s also easily accessible, it can be crowded during weekends and holidays. Just 3.4 miles in is the trail’s main attraction, Panther Creek Falls, where multiple streams of water rush over a hulking bluff and collect in an immense pool.
The flat patch of land at the pool’s edge is one of the most scenic campsites in Georgia. Granted, there are usually plenty of people vying to get this spot, and the trail nearby can see heavy traffic, but if you can visit midweek or in the offseason, you might nab it for a great overnight trip."
