Visitors are often amazed when they visit Georgias Little Grand Canyon. The massive gullies, as deep as 150 feet, were caused by poor farming practices during the 1800s. Hikers who explore the deepest canyons will usually find a thin layer of water along the trail, indication of the water table below. Colorful wildflowers, as well as the pink, orange, red and purple hues of the soft canyon soil, make a beautiful natural painting at this unique park. The rare Plumleaf Azalea grows only in this region and blooms during July and August when most azaleas have lost their color. While the park's visitor center is no longer open, hikers can enjoy views of the canyons from the rim trail, and backpackers can stay overnight along the backcountry trail. Camping and cottages are available nearby at Florence Marina State Park on beautiful Lake Walter F. George. Visitors are urged to use caution on trails and to not go beyond fences or overlooks. Erosion can cause the canyon walls to collapse.

Beautiful view that can't be found elsewhere in Georgia

This place was amazing. Mini redneck Grand Canyon. Make sure to bring exact $5 cash for parking. Get there early. The parking lot is small. There is not a lot of food option in the area so bring a lunch.

back country trail is nice walk in the woods, most scenic part is along the canyon loop

Great hike for my wife, 3 boys, and I. Great views, some inclines, but nothing serious. The trail is well marked and well maintained. 5 bucks to park.

we had a great time enjoyed the hike,we had a friendly fox come visit our camp ground and he was stubborn and did not want to go away finally we were able to shew him away with out incident.we stayed in number 3 and enjoyed our stay thank you!

I stayed in the back country camp sites on my trip. A 7 mile very diverse trail varying between soft sand, hard clay. some rocky areas. Nice inclines and declines. There are six sites. We hiked the trail backwards and noticed that site #6 has a shelter but the trail also goes right through the site. Sites 5,2, and 1 are very private. All of the maps I looked at show a water source. Be advised that you will need to hike water in. This source is pretty much non existent and we were advised strongly against using canyon floor water even if filtered. The small white trail was nice and offered views of old cars that were abandoned from an old homestead.

Great hike with the kids!

What a nice treat. While camping in Florida, we drove into Georgia just to hike it. Not disappointed at all that we did!

Very pleasant.

nice enjoyable hike with the family

One of the best places to escape the city. So peaceful and breathtaking!

A lot of open space and several water crossings. Enough up and downhill to make it a little difficult for children under 6.
