Two miles of nearly 1000' deep canyon will take your breath away. The staggeringly steep walls of the gorge, bursting with a variety native trees, coalesce at the roaring and grounding Tallulah River.

Tallulah Gorge is a must-see feature of Georgia. Campers can lay low and experience the gorge from its floor, engaging in river activities such as kayaking or swimming. Those seeking a thrill can hike the rim trails of the gorge, and even cross an 80' high suspension bridge. (Hikers who may be fearful of crossing the bridge can gain some perspective upon learning that Karl Wallenda walked across this gorge on a tightrope.)

Rock climbing is a popular activity in the gorge, but climbers should check in at the park website as climbing is prohibited for parts of the year due to falcon nesting.

Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the variety of plants and animals in the park, some of them rare, protected species. An interpretive center rounds out the trip with historical knowledge and engaging programs.

Overall rating: 

Great

Great place. Staff are a bit overzealous. Good place for older Boy Scouts.

Nice Jumping Off Point

Great spot for exploring the eastern side of north Georgia including the small town of Clayton. Check out the Wander North Georgia shop on Main Street for a great list of trails in the area.

Breath Taking View

I loved hiking around the Tallulah Gorge state park. The Gorge Floor, river and the high view were beautiful. And it was right next door to another beautiful place to hike and see waterfalls, Panther creek.
