First time visitor to this State Park and area. The Interpretive Center is full of history and very interesting. The trails that lead to the gorge is very nice and maintained. The views from the observation points are gorgeous. The history of the tight rope walker from the 1970s is another layer of interest and once you see the gorge unbelievable!!! Definitely go if you can arrange it.

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. It was a lovely day and we had a perfect visit.

Its $5.00 to park. We were into the hike about .25 miles. I ended up stepping in dog poop. After that mainly watched the ground NOT the scenery. There were so many dogs there. I saw some poop bags tied up and left on the ground.,lots of trash too. I never saw trash cans. When we got to the stairs, walked down and up. Was trying to catch my breath to relax from climb back up. Wasnt relaxing, so many dogs. I felt like I was at a DOG PARK. I will never be back to this park, unless things changed with the dogs. Dont get me wrong I love dogs, but not the untrained ones that people cant handle.

The hikes were easy - mostly on paved or well marked paths. You could do the 1 mile in and out path and see a couple of overlooks with great views. But we also did the 300+ stairs down to cross the suspension bridge with amazing views. Saw kayakers putting in their kayaks. Beautiful fall day. the hike back up the 300+ stairs was steep, but there is places along the steps to stop and rest and half way there is a water fountain. Even though I am sore 2 days later, I would definitely do it again. Would not take a dog on the steps though, since they are metal grates and it would hurt their paws. Saw many folks having to carry their dogs.

It's an easy walk to overlook the river and the canyon. Absolutely beautiful views. Easy to access and a great visitor's center.

We finally got to go to Tallulah Gorge! We were still unable to hike all the way down to the very bottom due to the rain keeping the rocks too wet to safely traverse, but I was on a mission to see this wonderful jewel so off we went!

The gorge, a giant two-mile-long gash in Georgia’s rolling terrain and one of three true canyons in Georgia, drops nearly 1000 feet deep over near-vertical walls to the remote canyon floor below with a series of six spectacular waterfalls carved by the Tallulah River and known collectively as the Tallulah Falls, which cause the river to drop 500 feet over one mile. Tallulah Gorge is bounded upstream by a hydroelectric dam operated by Georgia Power. Today the river flows much lower than the historical flow. Large releases of water are scheduled for kayaking and whitewater rafting. Additional aesthetic water releases are scheduled to allow visitors to see what the natural flow of the river would look like. The metal towers used by Karl Wallenda to cross the gorge via a 1,000 foot tightrope anchored by 1,000 feet of wire in 1970 are still on site.

There are some more very interesting safety signs, as you could imagine.

According to Wikipedia, parts of the 1972 film Deliverance were filmed in the gorge.

It is 345 steps down to the gorge floor via a suspension bridge offering spectacular views … and you know what that means … 310 steps back up. Don’t be put off by the steps - there are miles of trails that don’t require steps as well!

The campground and sites seemed like they were designed by a developer that never went camping nor cared to know what tenters or RVers want or look for when camping in a state or national park. They tried to squeeze as many campsites in an otherwise too small of an area for the most revenue they could get out of it. At least two other RVers hung several large sheets so they would not have to see the other campers three feet away. Also the campground was yards away from the main highway so we had plenty of road noise. The ranger and campground hosts were amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. The Falls were breathtaking and the hikes were really nice. The one fault was the highway noise took away from an otherwise beautiful natural environment. I rarely buy anything from gift shops but the one at the Falls had interesting stuff as a reasonable price.

The gorge is the State Park. Georgia has invested millions to capture this very picturesque landscape and provide loads of exercise and educational offerings as well.
