It is over 900 feet deep. Just beautiful. Deepest canyon east of the Mississippi River. The view from Tallulah Point Overlook is my favorite and only a few miles off the main road.

This was such a beautiful place. My wife (girlfriend at the time) came here in April of 2012. We had just driven overnight from Florida so as to have more time to enjoy things for our short weekend. We were blown away. Although it's not THE Grand Canyon, we still had no idea such a place existed. It was early... More

We were headed north and this was an unplanned stop, but SO GLAD we did. Only $5 to enter the park and well worth it. Got a quick, good explanation of trails, filled up our water bottles and headed on the route that was a little over a mile and provided tons of great views of the falls. There are... More

State Park located near Clarkesville Ga. This is a very scenic stop that is worth the trip. The Information Centre explains in detail the forming of the gorge and also depicts the many animals that frequent the area. The staff are quite friendly and full of information and ready to answer any questions. A note of caution to the elderly... More

Few different observatory decks but my favorite view was from the bridge. Those steps will give you an intense workout and if you're not used to, you'll take plenty of breaks but it's all worth it.

It's a great place to get some exercise for the whole family. Come prepared to sweat, the stairs can be strenuous for those with poor conditioning. Good news is there are several areas for rest and breaks. Beautiful overviews. The suspension bridge was fun. We had a great time. You may consider not bringing a pet as some areas don't... More

Beautiful wonder of nature. Breathtaking views of several lovely waterfalls. You will have to climb a lot of staid but it is well worth it. Super friendly staff

Pretty cool bridge over the chasm- neat displays and shop, I'd like to spend the day here hiking- it is a very busy park though.

The visitor center, rim trails, and the falls trails (down and up lots of stairs) were all excellent. Great views and sights from all different heights. Very unique place.

We checked in Friday after lunch and setup camp then at 7:30 hiked back to the visitors center for the the full moon guided hike. Watched the moon rise over the... More
