Overflow Creek, Big Creek and Holcomb Creek join at Three Forks to form the West Fork of the Chattooga River. Singley's Falls on Overflow Creek is accessible through dense forests and although it is steep the last 3/4 mile the trail is a well used old logging road and easy to walk except for the last 100 yards down to the creek. Overflow Creek drops another 150 feet over several falls before reaching Three Forks 0.9 miles down stream. Like all of the National Forest in this part of Rabun county the area is remote and beautiful.

To reach the trailhead drive from Clayton on Warwoman Road to Highway 28, a distance of about 14 miles. Turn left onto Highway 28 and go 4 miles to the community of Satolah. About a 100 yards after crossing the Big Creek Bridge turn left into a rough parking area. The old logging road that serves as the trail begins here. This road immediately crosses Talley Mill Creek which you may want to ford in your vehicle to avoid wading or rock hopping. The road is not good from this point on and if you choose to ford the creek in your vehicle I suggest parking as soon as you spot a turnaround. Follow the logging road for about 1.5 miles where the trail to Big Creek Falls turns 90 degree left and begins a slow decent to Big Creek. Continue straight for about another mile to a large blocking mound with a water-filled pit in front. A trail straight ahead descends to Three Forks. Turn right at the water filled pit and begin to descend sometimes steeply for about 1/2 mile to where the logging road turns sharply right. At this point the trail to Singley's Falls goes left for about a quarter of a mile to the top of the falls. The walking distances are estimates but you should allow about 2 hours to walk in and the same for the return trip.
