Amicalola Falls, 12 miles to the north, is the highest in Georgia. The streams descend 722 feet in a series of beautiful cascades, with one clear drop of over 100 feet. The part of the stream above the falls once drained Westward into the Cattecay River at the higher level. The swifter, lower Amicalola pushed back its headwaters divide until it beheaded the other stream, forming the presetn falls
