338 Jane Hurt Yarn Dr., Tallulah Falls, Georgia

Originally a tourist town in the late 1880s, Tallulah Falls is now a 2,694-acre state park. Running through the park is the Tallulah River, the force that created this two-mile-long, 1,000-foot-deep Tallulah Gorge. A suspension bridge 80 feet above the bottom of the gorge offers breathtaking views of the waterfalls below. Several hiking and mountain-biking trails traverse the interior of the gorge and the surrounding area. A free permit, available at the interpretive center, allows access to the gorge floor. Trails entering and exiting the gorge and on the gorge floor are very difficult and should not be attempted by visitors with health problems. Also available are trails that offer scenic views of the waterfalls cascading into the gorge.
