Lee Falls Special Area
It sure is! That’s the location name that comes up when you search for Lee Falls in Google Maps. This is a great waterfall to visit and photograph. Unfortunately the directions Google gives will not lead you to the trail head. Try these coordinates instead; 34.894351, -83.079860, continue until just before crossing a small bridge over Tamassee Creek and there is a parking area to the right. The trail head is at the end of this parking lot, through a gate opening to a small field.
The 1.5 mile trail to this waterfall is quite interesting as it passes through several open fields, rare for a hike in the Carolina mountains. It also makes several creek crossings which make waterproof boots very handy. It is a very easy trail until you get to the waterfall itself. There is starts to wind its way through boulders and downed trees, making it a fun maze. At this point you can hear and see the falls, so just pick whichever path you like and enjoy this special area!
