Go: Tallulah Gorge State Park

It’s Spring Break season (and summer break is just around the corner). While loading up and driving down to the beach is lovely, there are plenty of awesome things to do all over Georgia! One of our favorite spots is Tallulah Gorge State Park.

Tallulah Gorge is located in Tallulah Falls just off of 441 North. It is a MUST see and do here in Georgia! Tallulah Gorge is two miles long and almost 1,000 feet deep! Visitors can either hike rim trails to various overlooks or they can hike to the gorge floor. 80 feet above the gorge’s rocky bottom hangs a suspension bridge providing gorgeous views of the gorge, the river, and its waterfalls.

Not interested in hiking the gorge alone? Have no fear! The park rangers at Tallulah Gorge State Park host various events and hikes throughout the year! Interested? Here are a few of the upcoming events in the next month or so:

  • Whitewater-Watching Hike – hike down to Bridal Veil Falls to watch the brave souls paddle down the Tallulah River

Tallulah Gorge is a great opportunity to get out and to get moving! Even if you don’t make it to a guided event, be sure to make the (short) trip to Tallulah Gorge State Park! The view is totally worth it!
