The stairs can be a killer, but boy howdy is it beautiful. The museum is interesting as well. A couple of waterfalls to see. You have to register in order to visit the secure area, which naturally is where all of the neat stuff is.

“Beautiful Gorge overlook and nature center in NE Georgia”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Just South of Clayton, Tallulah Falls is fun stop right off the highway. A two story nature center runs a Georgia history film with beautiful photography of the gorge and waterfalls every 15 minutes. There are several trails leading to overlook spots of the scenic gorge over key waterfalls. At least one of the trails is handicap accessible. Do check the maps because quite a few trails have long staircases throughout. The river was damned decades ago to power hydro-electric power to Atlanta, but the river course and canyon are interesting to see and full of wildlife. The park has a small entrance fee and is interesting all year round. Do try to make go see it when they release the water for kayakers to run the whitewater down the river course -usually the weekends around Thanksgiving to early December. It is really fun to watch from the 2 lookouts closest to the visitor center. The first allows you a great view of the launch down over Oceania and through Bridal Veil falls. The second lookout is directly over Oceania so you can see how they negotiate the falls. Very fun! The lookouts can be windy so jacket may be a good idea if you want to stand and watch for a while.

“One of the greatest experiences in hiking”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

As expressed by other reviewers this is a must see place. You must be reasonable fit to climb the many, many steep steps. Thankfully, I use the stairmaster at gym regularly. It is an experience to enjoy and take in the sights.

“WOW... what a place!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The gorge is place of great beauty and danger all at the same time. Bring some good walking shoes and enjoy a hike to the bottom of Tallulah Gorge (don't worry, there's steps many, many steps!!) If that's not possible, then enjoy the view from the Interpretative Center or what the locals call The Point on the Old 441 Loop, it has the only free overlook available. The history of this place will amaze you.

“Unusual state park!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This state park has beautiful views of a deep gorge, ranging from 350 - 650 feet from the various easy-to-access lookout points along both sides of the rim. There are several lovely falls also. The thing that makes this park somewhat unique is the fact that almost anyone can "hike" the rim trails, both being reasonably short and with excellent lookout points. The interpretive center is very worthwhile as well. For the more adventurous, a hike down into the gorge and across the suspension bridge is a good connection point for the 2 rims. Beware the 1100 steps, though, if you're not up to that aerobic work. The campground is quite nice, with sites being adequate in size and with good bathroom facilities.
