Tallulah Gorge is an incredible sight in North Georgia – spanning 2 miles long and 1000 feet deep, the Tallulah River cuts through a deep gorge in the surrounding quartzite rock, creating a stunning set of six waterfalls as it cascades down through the gorge.
Tallulah Gorge State Park is well manicured, with a great interpretive center just off the parking lot. The center covers the historical and natural details of the area – perhaps a good stop after you’ve had the chance to stretch your legs on a tour of the trails.
This was our second visit to the park; our first, over a year ago, was cut short by rain and we wanted a chance to re-explore the area.
A set of well marked, well manicured hiking trails (North and South Rim trails) skirts the outer edges of the gorge, providing breathtaking views from the top rim into the deep expanses of the cut rock below over a moderately easy 3 mile loop. The hiking trails are well traveled and very popular; you’re likely to encounter many people along your hike, especially on weekends in peak season. But the views are a solid 10 out of 10; the views into the canyon are some of the most stunning geology we’ve seen in the Southeast.
