This waterfall is located in the Panther Creek Recreation Area at the end of a 3.5-mile moderate walk along Panther Creek. The National Forest parking area is located 8 miles north of Hollywood, Ga., on old US-441 between Clarksville and Tallulah Falls. The parking area is a daily fee facility, and restrooms are available. Parking is on the west side of US441.

To begin the hike from the parking area, cross over US441 and follow the trail markings. Panther Creek Falls Trail (5.5 miles) follows Panther Creek through stands of hemlock and white pine along steep, rocky bluffs of the creek. The trails passes a series of cascades as well as Panther Creek Falls. It terminates where Davidson Creek joins Panther Creek.

The trail is noted for its beautiful variety of wildflowers and ferns. The stream offers excellent opportunities for trout fishermen. Allow about 1.5 hours to reach the falls and 2 hours to return. Some rock scrambling is required, and there are some steep sections, but much of the hike is relatively flat.
