Tallulah Gorge State Park

Added by camprate admin

0 reviews

One of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah Gorge is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a free permit (limit 100 per day) to hike down to the gorge floor. A suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom, providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls. Exhibits in the park’s Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center highlight the rich history of this Victorian resort town, as well as the rugged terrain and fragile ecosystem of the area. Additionally, an award-winning film takes viewers on a dramatic journey through the gorge.

Permits are required for all people accessing the gorge floor or rock climbing/rappelling. Permits are not transferable. The only approved trails for entering or leaving the gorge floor are the Sliding Rock and the Hurricane Falls (staircase) trails. Trails entering or exiting the gorge, as well as those on the gorge floor, are very strenuous. Visitors with health problems should not attempt to climb these trails. CHILDREN MUST BE CLOSELY SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES. Weather and water flow conditions can restrict gorge floor access. Permits limited to 100 per day.

During deer hunting season (Sept. 11 – Jan. 1) Stoneplace Trail permits will not be issued until after 10 a.m. and hikers/bikers are encouraged to wear reflective orange.
