Tallulah Gorge State Park in Georgia
Updated: Sep 12, 2022
Difficulty: Strenuous Trail Length: 1 mile to 10 miles, depending on your trail of choice Why it's cool: Neat bridge, deep gorge, unique veiws! Tallulah Gorge State Park has been on my list for quite a while now. She's got a pretty name, and I'm definitely a sucker for a good gorge tucked into the hills of Appalachia! Many folks who head to Tallulah Gorge go with the hopes of hiking the trail that goes to the floor of the gorge. There are a few things to note here; the floor is not always open depending on the weather, you must wear close-toed shoes, it is strenuous, and you need a permit to get to the bottom. These permits are available at the main building of the park. Unfortunately, there was too much rainfall to get to the floor the day I ventured out to Tallulah Gorge, but it was a great journey nonetheless!
If you don't know anything else about Tallulah Gorge, you've probably seen ~the bridge~. This suspension bridge in the park is beautiful and it's such a unique feature!
Y'all, if you're wondering... yes. I did squat and make a fool of myself to get this angle. Those shots for tHe GrAm don't take themselves! One thing that I did not expect while exploring Tallulah Gorge were all of the stairs. Dear Lord, there were so many stairs. There are plenty of signs along the way letting you know exactly how many steps of stairs you will encounter along the way, but that number doesn't truly hit until you feel your thighs pull you up each individual stair. There was some heavy breathing involved, y'all.
If you are a fan of waterfalls, Tallulah Gorge definitely needs to be on your list! There are several overlooks throughout the park that offer beautiful views of the waterfalls below.
Thanks for reading, y'all! Have fun planning your next adventures out in the Appalachian Mountains. Remember when you wander to practice Leave No Trace Principles. Take only pictures, and leave only footprints. Happy wandering!
