We spent a quick hour and a half here on our way further north. The stop was well worth it, including the informational video and displays inside the facility. There were several different trails to take of varying lengths and difficulties. We took the relatively short hike to the bridge and back and enjoyed the sights on a cool day... More

We had half day and we did cover along North Rim Trail Near Overlook #1 are the remains of one of the steel towers used by Karl Wallenda for his tightrope walk across the gorge back in 1970. We further went to walk up to Inspiration Point. it's only a half mile round trip...but worth the scene and nice time... More

Visit Tallulah Gorge and get your fill of beautiful views, rushing water, fresh air, and lots of exercise. We did the entire north and south rim loops, including down to the gorge floor. The park only gives out 100 tickets per day to visit the gorge floor, so plan ahead accordingly, and arrive early. Also be aware that no pets... More

Navigation found it easily. Parking was plentiful. Upper paths were super easy. Paved, cushioned, plenty of benches. Non-active folks could hang out there while others took the stairs. About 1000 stairs to get down and back up. Not taxing for fit folks. Plenty of stopping points for less fit folks. We went on Sunday afternoon, 4pm, 65 degrees and sunny.... More

We spent 3 days camping here and really enjoyed it. You can go all the way to the bottom without a permit (stairs/trail) but if you want to hike at the bottom and swim at Sliding Rock waterfall you need a free permit issued at the interpretive Center (they only issue 100 per day so get there early). Dogs are... More

The shorter hikes and upper observation areas have great views but if your up for an adventure the hike down through the gorge is amazing! One of the best overall hikes I've been on because of the multitude of falls and views. Better get there early in during the warm season because there on only 100 permits a day for... More

Tallulah Gorge and the Falls is a must see if you are in the North Georgia area. The Falls are absolutely breathtaking and peaceful.

We took our teenaged kids and their friends up to Talulah Gorge for a hike. It had been many years since we visited. Very clean with friendly and helpful park rangers. Nice little museum inside and gift shop with clean restrooms. The landscape is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. You must hike down about 200 ft. and go on... More

The gorge and falls are beautiful. The path around the upper rim is easy but its hard to get good pictures so far up.

We went just to view the falls, but since the weather was rough, they were turned off. One word- EXHAUSTING!!! You must be physically and mentally prepared to take these hikes. I only made it to the swaying bridge then I was DONE!
