Ochlocknee Falls

Ochlocknee Falls has most often been known by the simple name "The Water Falls". This limesink is extremely rare in South Georgia, for its walls are exposed limestone rock. Most limesinks in the region have dirt walls because the overburden of soil is very deep in most of the area. A small waterfall spills into the rocky crevice and disappears into a gapping cavern at the bottom of the pit. Huge rock boulders cover the floor about 55 feet and more below the falls. Beyond this, the pit sinks gradually another 50 feet or more into the entrance of the caverns. Ochlocknee Falls is located in northern Grady County, about nine miles north of Cairo and west of Hawthorne Trail, the Camilla-Cairo highway (Ga. Hwy. 112). It is about 230 miles south of Atlanta, Ga. and about 50 miles north of Tallahassee, Florida.
