The Lula Lake Land Trust (lulalake.org) maintains a portion of the land in the extreme northwest corner of Georgia through which Rock Creek flows and on which are two outstanding falls, small but beautiful Lula Lake and more than six miles of hiking trails. The area is open 9am-5pm for hiking, biking and picnicking on the first and last Saturday of each month throughout the year. Pets are welcome on a leash.
The 1-mile level trail from the parking area to the falls and lake is graveled and follows an old railroad bed which years ago was used to haul coal. Because Rock Creek is a high-mountain stream the flow is dependent on recent rainfall and the falls will have less flow during dry periods. However, because the lake and falls are located near the top of Lookout Mountain, the area with its rock outcrops, vistas and unusual geological features is a beautiful and interesting place to visit even when Rock Creek has low water flow.
