Tallulah Gorge is an astounding natural wonder that sits right outside of Tallulah Falls, Ga. The canyon is located right on the county line between Habersham and Rabun counties. The deep gorge from which the park gets its name was formed from years of erosion caused by the Tallulah River. Tallulah is more than a park — it’s a force of nature! Visitors to Tallulah will find that there is plenty to explore. While the park is 2,689 acres, the gorge alone is two miles long and almost 1,000 feet deep! The park offers limited passes to explorers who want to hike the gorge floor and see the bottom of the canyon.
Visitors are also encouraged to hike the rim of the gorge, mountain bike along the trails, sightsee from the suspension bridge, and experience the beautiful, yet fragile ecosystem that is Tallulah Gorge. Tallulah Gorge State Park also hosts a Full-Moon Suspension Bridge Hike. As the name suggests, visitors will be led on a guided hike across the bridge overlooking the gorge with nothing but the full moon to light your path. Sounds like an adventure to me! Interested hikers are encouraged to register in advance for the full moon hike!
