We brought our 8 and 10 yo here while waiting out tropical storm Alberto. They kept saying thank you for bringing us here (without us prompting them). They were amazed to see the layers of soil and climb around where they could. You walk down...More

Providence Canyon was formed as a result of erosion caused by poor farming practices in the 1800s. But the result is a beautiful and colorful series of small canyons that are well worth a visit. Pictures give you a clue regarding the beauty, but even...More

The Grand Canyon of the East! Absolutely worth the time to visit! Unfortunately, the map you get from the visitors' center is confusing, and once on the trails, the signage is either also confusing, or missing altogether. The Canyons to visit are Canyons 4-5, if...More

Very easy to find and several overlook points make it an easy walk. We didn’t go to the canyon floor so I’m not sure how strenuous that hike would be. Very impressed and hard to believe that it is located in Georgia! Beautiful!

First time there with family. We really enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery. It was something new and different to explore. Only cost 5 dollars per vehicle to get in. There's not really anything around so pack a lunch and water.

Good day trip State Park. You will not need to spend more than 3-4 hours here. The weather was fantastic in March. I would visit before the summer heat! Beautiful photo opportunities & very easy hiking. Good for families and pets.
