Tallulah Gorge State Park

Tallulah Gorge State Park (HDR image)The next stop our weekend state park tour was Tallulah Gorge State Park, located north of Toccoa, GA. Tallulah Gorge is a two mile-long canyon that is almost 1000 feet deep with a river rushing through it.

The park has one of the best “interpretive centers” that I’ve seen in Georgia’s state park system. We hiked along the north rim of the gorge and then went down into the canyon.

There was some sort of kayaking event below and they had closed off the trail to Hurricane Falls. Nonetheless, after climbing back up 602 steps while carrying Trey, I was quite content with having gone as far as we did.
