Beautiful place!

This is a beautiful place to see whether you can hike or need to stay on level ground. Great place to get outdoors and something for all ages and every level of ability.

Spent the morning in Helen and drove over to hike the falls. Beautiful warm day. The state park seems small but nice. Had to pay for entrance but that's usual. Did the north rim trail -300 steps down to suspension bridge. Pretty strenuous. But worth the effort. Very nice views of waterfalls

This was our first hiking stop on our trip because of the reviews I'd seen on it. The park is absolutely beautiful with incredible views, but on a Saturday it was extremely crowded. We had to circle the parking lot twice to find a spot and when we arrived to each of the "viewing areas" on the mountain we had... More

Drove from Ellijay to here just to hike and see the views. So glad we did. The park was very busy but it didn't seem too bad when hiking. There are 5 overlook views to see the gorge from. There are 610 steps total to the bottom of the gorge and about 379 steps to the suspension bridge that overlooks... More

My friend and I went early (9am) on a Monday morning to make sure we could get the gorge floor pass. The staff were very friendly and informative about the path, where to cross, and where to/not to swim. Here's a little outline of the path and what to expect: - You begin by checking out a few lookouts on... More

We had a lovely few hours here, enjoying the extremely well-designed visitors' center, and a few of the easier walks to some of the majestic overlooks. My mother, who'd had recent leg surgery, managed the walks to lookouts 1, 2, and 3, so there is something for everyone. Don't forget to carry your own water and snacks if planning to... More

This was an amazing hike! It's certainly not for beginners or those with knee or hip problems, if you do the entire hike! There are different points you can go, in the park, that aren't as strenuous and get some nice views of the gorge and falls. But, if you can do the 1,099 stairs, bring plenty of water, take... More

Between the colors of fall & the vistas to the gorge & waterfalls, you do not realize you are going up & down staircases to both the bottom then top of the walkways. Take a bottle of water & good walking shoes - but you won't be sorry even though your heart is beating in triple time! ;)

My family visited twice already. The gorge is beautiful and the waterfall is refreshing. It has a nice little welcome center that leads to the walking trail. The first I took the trail, all those stairs made me nauseated, literally. It had more than 600 stairs. I realized that I need more exercise since my kids had no problem :-)

The park offers clean bathrooms and an amazing interpretive center with friendly and helpful staff. The North and South Rim Trails show off the natural beauty from 10+ overlook spots, however.... in order to fully appreciate the extreme beauty of the dam and the many multi-level, multi-tiered waterfalls that run throughout the gorge, one must climb down 510 steps from...
