If you are into hiking and nature, this is the place to visit. The gorge is the largest canyon east of the Mississippi. Steeped in history and all but forgotten. The views from the rim are amazing but the real feature is the walk down to the bottom and back out of the canyon. 1099 steps with plenty of places... More

Tullulah Gorge was a weekend getaway for my husband and I. The gorge is just beautiful and the visitors center was a very delightful way to cool off after hiking over 800 steps up and down the gorge. I liked the mini-museum that told about the history of the park. The park staff were kind, courteous and friendly. I would... More

This was a lot of fun. During the week you have the whole place to yourself. Not a crowded attraction. Take lots of water. Unless you are in great shape you'll need to take a few breaks along the way, but it is worth it It's gorgeous!

Tallulah Gorge State Park is a beautiful, well maintained park with beautiful views. My daughter, a friend and I hiked down to the Gorge floor. 500 + stairs down, crossing the river on rocks (can be a little dicey), then on to a swim hole then climb up 500+ stairs out. This can be a bit of a dangerous and... More

We came here with our 5 year son and had a blast! We did the loop trail around the gorge and one of the back country trails. About 7 miles of hiking and climbing but it was awesome! Would highly recommend this place!

The views are amazing. Trails are well kept and the park was very clean. I like the Interpretive center. Loved seeing the historical items but would have liked more of the areas back story prior to English settlements.

This park was bigger than we thought. The waterfalls views were beautiful from the two observations areas we visited. We could not go all the way down because it too strenuous for my parents. The visitor center is great too with nice exhibits.

This is just a short turn off of 441. We stopped to break the travel monotony on our way to Gatlinburg. There is a $5.00 parking fee because this is a state park. The interpretive center is really interesting and there are clean restrooms. There are 3 overlooks which are just a very short distance from the interpretive center with... More

Visited in July 2015. There was 5$ for parking and I got there around 10 am for Atlanta, so roughly 2 hours. All the floor passes were gone by that time, the guide told me they sold around 8:30, so definitely get there early if that's what you really plan to do. It was my first time, even visiting so...

The park is nice. Trails well maintained. Facilities were clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Didn't make attempt to do the gorge trail (permit required) due to the strenuous and dangerous terrain and the time required to do it (4hr round trip)
