We obtained our permits in the morning( they can go quick) and hiked thru the whole gorge. Easily the best hike we've ever done. Most of the time you're scrambling over big rocks with a mandatory river crossing on boulders just at the beginning of the gorge. Be mindful of snakes. Every time we turned around there seemed to be... More

Only $5 for parking. Worth every penny. We are City folk with no hiking experience. The hike to reach the "sliding rock trail" will make your heart stop and the hike to leave the trail will take your breathe away. Literally heart pounding, breathe taking, adventure filled hike. If you suffer from knee injury or any bodily injury I would... More

Great views of the gorge and river flowing far below. See where Carl Walenda walked across the gorge on a tightrope back in the early 70s. Nice visitor center. Nice trails. Beautiful waterfalls when river is flowing well. Well worth a stop

This State Park has a lot to offer. I stuck to the portion of the trail that was listed as accessible and went to 2 overlooks. The trailbed was wonderful to walk on, leveled out and covered with packed recycled rubber made for easy walking even for those with sore knees. There are nice views from the 2 overlooks that...

Pay the five bucks and park by the visitor center. The trail starts inside, and as you go down through the building, you are treated to natural history. Once down behind the center, you can walk a short way on a good path to two or five easy to reach viewpoints. There are a series of falls, so each observation... More

Called to check yes "we are giving out passes". Hurried all the way back down to make it in time... More

Located on Hwy US-23/441, just 90 minutes’ drive from Atlanta, this gorgeous gorge features several waterfalls along its canyon. It is very easy to access by foot after you park at the State Park facilities ($5 per car). There is a Nature Center showing wildlife, plants, geology and history of the place, and a 25 minutes movie explaining the “All... More
