Minnehaha Falls is a series of cascades located on Falls Creek in Rabun County, Georgia. The waterfalls descend about 100 feet over a stepped rock formation. The falls are near Lake Rabun, within the boundaries of the Chattooga River Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest.

The falls are named for Minnehaha, a fictional character in the epic poem The Song of Hiawatha.

The falls can be reached by a short trail (0.4 miles) from Bear Gap Road called the Minnehaha Trail. The trail is maintained by the U.S. Forest Service.
