Tallulah Gorge State Park Falls
Tallulah Gorge is 2 miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. You can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or you can obtain a free permit to hike down to the gorge floor.
Suspension bridge at Tallulah Gorge State Park 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. The only approved trail for entering or leaving the gorge floor is the Hurricane Falls staircase.

Both the Hurricane Falls staircase and gorge floor are very strenuous. 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.

Tallulah Gorge State Park is operated by a public-private partnership with Georgia Power Company. Many facilities, including the campground, are operated by Georgia Power rather than the Department of Natural Resources.

Due to access restrictions on private property, the original Sliding Rock Trail is closed. Sliding Rock pool is accessed by hiking the Hurricane Falls staircase. GORGE FLOOR PERMIT REQUIRED.

NOTE: See the video at the bottom of this page.

Groups of 20 can get permits on Saturday and Sunday only. Groups of 30 can get permits Monday through Friday only. To protect the natural resource, no groups larger than 30 are allowed. Weather and water flow conditions can restrict gorge floor access.
High Bluff and Stoneplace Trails
This moderately difficult out-and-back trail system has a 2 mile moderately technical section of trail called the High Bluff trail. It terminates into older road beds which become the Stoneplace trail and descends to the Stoneplace boat ramp on Lake Tugalo. Once you get to the boat ramp, the ride back is all ascending. Lake Tugalo is a primitive lake formed by the Chattooga and Tallulah rivers.
Pet Rules
For animals' safety, pets are not allowed on the gorge floor or on any trail accessing the gorge. Leashed pets are still allowed on rim trails.
