Long Description:
Dukes Creek, from Wikipedia:
--
Dukes Creek is the creek in White County, Georgia on which gold was found in 1828. Either Frank Logan or one of his slaves is typically given the credit for this find. The discovery of gold in White County and neighboring Lumpkin County lead to the Georgia Gold Rush. Dukes Creek is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River.

The 150 foot Dukes Creek Falls, which are actually located on Davis Creek at its confluence with Dukes Creek, are accessed by a hiking trail called the Dukes Creek Trail. There is an observation platform at the falls. Dukes Creek Falls is one of four waterfalls in the Chattahoochee National Forest near Helen, Georgia that are popular destinations. Two of the other waterfalls, Anna Ruby Falls and Raven Cliff Falls, are also in White County and the third waterfall, DeSoto Falls, is in neighboring Lumpkin County.

The Smithgall Woods – Dukes Creek Conservation Area also includes a portion of Dukes Creek.
