Cochrans Falls cascades approximately 600 feet vertically descending from Frosty Mountain. The Largest fall is at the top and is the first image above. After the initial fall shown the falls continues to cascade steeply for about another 150 feet before changing to a series of smaller cascades (two are shown above) to the bottom.
To reach this falls go west on GA 52 from Dahlonega 14.5 miles to the second entrance for Wesley Chapel Rd just inside Dawson County. Turn right on Wesley Chapel Rd. and after .8 mile turn left on Dan Fowler Rd. Go 1.2 miles and turn left on Blackhawk Road. Ford the creek within a few yards. The road parallels a field for the first 100 yards or so before reaching a fork. Take the left fork and ford Cochrans creek twice in the next 0.6 miles. Continue on this road until you decide to park and walk because of the rough and often muddy road filled with standing water. The total distance to the base of the falls after turning on Blackhawk Rd. is about 2 miles. The poorly defined trail which ascends the right side of the falls is treacherous and not recommended.
