Definitely one of the best spots I've been to in GA so far. I honestly prefer nature to stairs, but that's really the only drawback to this place. Gorgeous views from tons of places all over the park. Great information center. I'm glad I took the hike before finding out they filmed Deliverance here. :)

This is a great hike. I rate moderate to strenuous. Awesome views. Be extra careful when u get your feet wet or step on the wet rocks. They are super slick. I have been all over the gorge way back before the state park scene. Highly recommended just be careful.

On May 17, 2013 I stopped in to Tallulah Gorge State Park to get some new photo's. The park was in full bloom and smelled of honeysuckle. It was a beautiful clear day and the water level was low so from the top bridge area the waters were roaring.

I took my 6 year old Reese hking on the gorge for the 1st time Friday 12-21-12. It was 25 degrees not a sole was there except the ranger and it started to snow hard. The winds were harsh in the canyons. The water levels were as low as I have ever seen them, a beautiful sight.

This place is breathtaking--the upper rim trails on both side have awesome views. This place is also quite challenging because it has a ton of stairs (being 19 and fairly in shape, I wasn't phased too much). The trail at the bottom of the gorge that follows the river is great; definitely my favorite part. It has a fun river crossing at the beginning, where you have to hop a few rocks. The rest of the trail also has quite a few more rocks to walk/climb over, and can be difficult in few spots, I don't think some older people should try this trail. At the end of the trail there is a swimming hole, and a huge rock that you can slide down that is a ton of fun, so bring a swimsuit.

By far the most outstanding hike I have done in Georgia. I was there November 19, 2011 the last day they opened the dam up for the kayakers. The photo's were spectacular from every vantange point. Highly recommend this hike. MUST! be able to easily do stairs they are all over the park. Knee problems and you can forget it.

In response to melissa peacock: I think it took about an hour to get all the way to the bottom, maybe less. Then about another hour to go back up. But it all depends on how many breaks you need to take along the way. It is quite a trek!

I am going back again. On November 19th the waters were open so the Gorge Floor was closed but the photo's were to die for. I want to actually explore the Gorge Floor in the next couple of weeks. It was a tremendous time. I spent 5 hours in the park just exploring and never bored and never tired.

US 441 drives over the gorge. We had driven through here so many times and never knew about it. Well, I'm glad we went. It is a very nice park with up-to-date facilities. The interpretive center displays the history and ecology of the area. The trail is a challenge. There are places to sit on the stairs, and you WILL need to sit and rest. The stairs pay off with dramatic vistas of the gorge.

We almost didn't stop here but I am so glad we did. This is a beautiful State Park with gorgeous views of the gorge. There are A LOT of stairs to go down to the bottom but that's the easy part. The stairs going back up seem endless. It was definitely worth the hike, though. There is a really cool suspension bridge that goes all the way across the gorge. They also have a really nice interpretative center. It is one of the nicest parks in Georgia.

Absolutely Beautiful - Go ahead and get the permit to hike the gorge floor - lots of fun! Just be prepared for the stairs going back up to the top.
