Tallulah Gorge State Park is a vast 2,689 acre stretch of land located on the Appalachian Trail in the scenic North Georgia Mountains. Stretched between two lakes and fed by the Tallulah River, the gorge is over 1,000 feet deep and two miles long and is one of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern United States. Tallulah State Park is a true gem of the region and features six major waterfalls, numerous serene lakes, and tons of opportunities for recreation. Ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers, this GA State Park truly has something for everyone.
Nestled in the heart of the mountains, Glen-Ella Springs Inn is just a short fifteen-minute drive from one of the most breathtaking areas in the state and is the perfect place to retreat after a day of adventure. Here are some of our favorite ways to explore the Tallulah Gorge State Park.
Hiking & Biking: More than 20 miles of trails of varying difficulty can be found throughout Tallulah State Park. The easiest is the Shortline Trail, a paved path that is accessible for strollers, bicycles, roller blades, and more. For more advanced mountaineers, head to the North and South Rim Trails and challenge yourself to a tougher trek. Just be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the time of year.
Before you head out on your outdoor excursion, be sure to get a restful night’s sleep at our Clarkesville bed and breakfast and fuel your body with a gourmet breakfast in the morning. You’ll leave feeling energized, refreshed, and ready to take on the day!
