Views were wonderful but be prepared to walk up and down stairs but there are a lot of places to stop and sit. Bring a water bottle and there are water filling stations along the way.

Heading back home from Thanksgiving vacation, I stopped at Tallulah Gorge State Park. There is a small parking fee to get in the park but trust me, it's worth every dollar you pay. You have miles of trails that take you down the gorge and...More

The park has nice hiking trails. You need to be in fair/moderate shape to go there. There are alot of stairs to go across the gorge, but it is totally worth it.

Happened to be there when they were releasing water from the dam. In addition to seeing the roaring river, they also had experienced kayakers going down the river. There are 7 waterfalls, with the tallest being 96 feet. It was intense to watch the kayakers....More

Our entire family had a great time at Tallulah Gorge. Trails were well-identified and not too steep for the smaller children. The views were breathtaking.

We have come with our dog both times so we could not go down into the gorge but nevertheless you still get great views and some hiking in. We drove thru the campground and it is very nice too.

We camped for two nights. The campground was clean and well maintained. It was a convenient hike over to the trails to see the gorge. Be aware, the steps down and up are serious and plentiful. With the water releases, the waterfalls were all fabulous....More

Georgia State Parks were open for Thanksgiving in 2017. Looks like a newsletter will come out shortly about holiday schedules.

From the visitor center, to where the stairs start, is paved. At that point, there is a couple of overlooks that are very pretty. You probably would not be able to make it to the swinging Bridge in a wheeelchair because... More

Staying in Clayton, labor day weekend 2011 (5 Replies)
a group of 8 of us, late 20's are staying in a cabin in Clayton and are looking for some adventerous activities. we of course are hitting the Chattooga River but are looking for some guided mountain climbing, or biking or some locals only type hiking trails to swimming holes and/or waterfalls. I have looked into Tallulah Gorge state park, and that is on our list, but we've got a full day of nothing planned and are looking to fill that up with something! thanks for any help!

You might like to drive over to Helen and Unicoi State park/Anna Ruby Falls for the day. Another suggestion would be to go up just across the GA state line to Highlands, NC- lots of things to see and do- Dry Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Whiteside Mountain climbing, Gem mine and botanical gardens. Enjoy your trip!! PS. Good food at Dillard House just north of Clayton in Dillard, GA.
