This is a great place to see some wonderful waterfalls. Some of the hike was tiring do to the steps on coming back up but well worth the exercise. Take plenty of water. Also remember to get a free permit if you want to go down to the bottom first!

Get a permit to hike down into the gorge. Then cross the river and slide down Bridal Veil Falls. Great summer thing with the kids but wear very good shoes and be in decent shape, some rock crawling required.

How can one improve on what has taken mother nature thousands of years to create? Beautiful views. We walked all the way to the bottom of Hurricane Falls, and my legs were shaking a bit when I reached the bottom. Climbing up the +500 steps to get back to the top was challenging, and I consider myself to be in... More

Tallulah Gorge State Park is a must see! The interpretive center is one of the best I've seen!! The views of the gorge from the multiple view points are breathtaking. The climb down to the suspension bridge is over 600 steps so the climb back up is no joke! Take your time and it's not too bad!

This is such a lovely place, everywhere you turn is something to see, NON COMMERCIAL! The shops are Mom and Pop places, which I love, and not a big company chain of any sort in sight. So if you arrive after hours, remember, you are left to your own devices and come prepared. We found this place completely by accident... More

Awesome place, don't follow their signs! Look for the spray Paint on the tree's depending on which trail your on. I am sure the people who put the signs in the forest up do it just for laughs. If you get lost just follow the noise of the traffic. If you don't hear it, turn Round.

My partner has been wanting us to visit Tallulah Gorge for over a year, and we finally made it out. We arrived early, just after the park opened. We got our passes at the welcome center and began our trek to the bottom of the Gorge. It was definitely a strenuous hike and if he hadn't navigated this previously I... More

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
