I was lucky enough to visit the falls on one of the two days of the year when they release extra water from the dam for kayakers. On one hand, you need to reserve a place with the hiking group that goes to the bottom of the gorge weeks or months in advance. On the other hand, the view from... More

This was surprise last stop on our way home. Overhead someone mention a gorge when we were in a shop, so we hopped in the car and looked for "gorge" on our GPS. We found a beautifl spot that claimed the "best free view" and it was...Plus there was a tiny BBQ place upstairs with the most amazing ribs I've... More

Beautiful gorge. Lovely views. If you want to hike it, be prepared for a lot of work. Be in good shape. Still, if you aren't in good shape, there are a couple of views that are within "less than good shape" distance. Nice exhibits as well. Definitely impressed with the overall offerings here - lots to do for everyone.

Lots of rough hiking and beautiful scenery. We hiked every trail, viewed the movie in the visitor center and met fun people.

This was my second visit to Tallulah Gorge park and I still shocked by its beauty just like the first time. I highly recommend to visit this park especially in the fall. The falls are simply amazing, if you are going to visit be ready for a great leg work out. The park's trails consist of 1000 steps which are... More

$5 entry fee to park, $3.75 if military/veteran. Interpretive center interesting. Loved the 15 minute movie. Maps available which highlight trails. We did all the trails except the one that goes to the bottom of gorge. Some are very easy and a small part can be accessed by wheel chair. We decided not to go to the bottom this trip... More

The gorge has several impressive waterfalls along its two mile run. the river flows over 1000 feet below the rim of the gorge. There is a very nice trail system including a long set of stair down to a bridge that crosses the... More

What a wonderful scenic area. The falls are just beautiful and in the autumn when the leaves are changing you can't ask for a better picture. The visitors center is nicely presented with all sorts of information on the area. Be prepared for a strenuous stairs climb, especially if you aren't in shape (like me). Getting down is easy, take...

We were visiting Helen and decided to go here as it's only about half an hour away. Best decision. The people in visitor center are nice and knowledgeable. The hikes to different falls and outlooks are breathtaking!!! You have to be fit to go down 1064 steps to see Hurricane falls, furthermore, 1064 steps going back up!!! Take lots and... More

If you want to have fantastic pictures and get a great workout then you need to come to the Tallulah Falls Park. My wife and I decided to visit the park and Gorge when we were in the area on a vacation. We wanted to see all the falls so we did the long walk down into the gorge. There... More
