This waterfall is located in Sky Valley, Georgia, just across the state line from North Carolina. The trailhead (such as it is) is located in the Sky Valley community. If you head towards the Sky Valley Golf Course club house, there is a small sign just before the club house that says Mud Falls to the right. This road runs along the course for a while before curving down below the dam.
Despite the name, it’s an attractive waterfall. The truth of it is, this is the highlight of the trail and it’s right next to the trailhead. The trail is easy though and runs along the creek towards Dillard, Georgia for a mile or so. There is a nature trail component to it with some identified trees and eventually (stay along the road) a covered bridge.
We also saw this friendly (as salamanders go) salamander at the falls.
