Explore Tallulah Gorge State Park
One of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah
Gorge is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can
hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a free
permit (limit 100 per day) to hike down to the gorge floor.
A suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom,
providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls. Exhibits in
the park's Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center highlight the rich
history of this Victorian resort town, as well as the rugged terrain
and fragile ecosystem of the area. Additionally, an award-winning
film takes viewers on a dramatic journey through the gorge.
Permits are required for all people accessing the gorge floor or
rock climbing/rappelling. The only approved trail for entering or
leaving the gorge floor is the Hurricane Falls staircase. Both the
Hurricane Falls staircase and gorge floor are very strenuous.
Trails entering or exiting the gorge, as well as those on the
gorge floor, are very strenuous. Visitors with health problems
should not attempt to climb these trails. Children MUST be closely
supervised at all times.
Tallulah Gorge State Park is operated by a public-private
partnership with Georgia Power Company.
