Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and beautiful vistas. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton's Gulch Creek, and elevation differs from 800 to 1,980 feet. The most spectacular view into the canyon is found near the picnic area parking lot; however, additional views can be found along the rim trail. Hardy visitors who hike to the bottom of the gorge (including a 600-step staircase) find two waterfalls cascading over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below. (For visitor safety, wading in pools and climbing on waterfalls is not allowed.) Cottages are located near the canyon edge, while the parks walk-in campsites provide exceptional privacy for tents. Be sure to stop by the office gift shop for hiking sticks, camping supplies, snacks, toys, disc golf supplies, books at more. Outdoor lovers should not miss this parks spectacular scenery.

Great for the family, but not at all if you're looking for peace and quiet. My girlfriend and I went on a saturday, it was PACKED, you're no more than 10 feet away from another person. You show up to the falls, snap some pictures, and then it is a treacherous way back up the steep steps. You will be out of breath. You could traverse the creek to reach the falls and get away from the crowd, that's the only way to make this trail worth it!

Well maintained and scenic trail. Lovely sounds of the creek for most of the hike. My 5 and 6 year old daughters enjoy the trip! You can bypass the stairs by parking in Trenton at the Cloudland Canyon parking lot and hiking up the trial to the waterfall and back.
