Stoneplace Trail is a 9.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Tallulah Falls, GA that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Not much to see until the end at the lake but worth the hike down. Nice dock to sit on a end.
An easy in and out trail with nice, spotted views across the gorge. A clear, quiet Sunday afternoon, taking in fading, but still radiant fall foliage, created a peaceful locale for lunch on the dock. Adding a trip to Inspiration Point to watch kayakers brave the cold rapids, satisfyingly topped the 14-mile day.
A (free) back country permit is required for this 10 total mile out and back trail which starts at Tallulah Gorge State Park and ends at a boat launch & camping area on Tugaloo lake. 3600 feet of total elevation gain makes this trail a challenge if attempted after the stairs leading into the gorge on the main rim trails. Several back country campsites are available along the trail and a 4x4 road leading to a boat ramp can be used to access the trail terminus.
