    Apparently, there are two falls with the same name. Which one is the best one to go see?

    Cool weather I'd say Rabun: taller waterfall, more of a hike to get to it.

    Warmer weather (depending on whether you consider 60s/70s "warm" or "cool") Lumpkin, as there's a proper swimming hole. It's also more accessible to parking, if that's a factor. The Lumpkin falls is also near Dahlonega, which has kind of a nice square with some good eateries (my family likes Picnic Cafe) and a quite good chocolate shop, things to add to an excursion.

    There is a nice place to hike at Dicks Creek in Dahlonega if you know the spot. It's a little rough for some but leads back to a pool of water and a large rock. Be careful splashing in puddles on top of the rock. The holes are deep. I lived in the area a while back and still one of my favorites places to go hiking and camping.
