Warwoman Dell Trail System

Explore the trails around the Warwoman Dell Recreation Area along this easy trail system in north Georgia. Good for kids and dogs, this short hike takes you to a small waterfall and sneaks in a bit of history as well. Add a short loop to Becky Branch Falls or a longer trail to Martin Creek Falls or an even longer hike to Pinnacle Knob if you're up for more.

You can park at either parking lot for this hike. This page describes starting at the rear lot but this is really a choose your own adventure style hike. Head out on the green-blazed trail which quickly loops up to the pavilion area. Continue away from the parking lot, taking either path of another loop that ends in a really nice secluded waterfall. You'll notice several posted information signs along these sections and the rest of the hike. Back at the pavilion is a large info sign with a map.

Take the old railroad bed past the sign. Make sure not to head up the yellow-blazed Bartram trail or you might be hiking quite a bit more than you had planned. Follow this flat path to an intersection where, technically water is falling, but I'm hesitant to call it a waterfall.

Turning left here will take you down a steep set of steps that connect to the lower trail. I'd recommend continuing straight to loop around. There is one side trail here that looks like it was blocked at some point. Just stay on the main path that turns around back to the parking.

From the pavilion at the first parking lot you can take a path that parallels the gravel road or just take the gravel road back to the second parking lot to end this loop. A few other interconnecting trails exist to explore but this gets the highlights. On the way back to the second parking lot you'll pass two trails on the right. One is the Bartram heading north and the other makes a short loop to Becky Branch Falls that I would recommend adding to this hike. I've listed it in purple on the terrain map below.

Quiet Trail System
There were many other cars at the parking lots but I didn't see a single other person while walking these trails. Nice little waterfall and if you combine it with Becky Branch Falls you get two nice waterfalls for a short easy hike.
