forest

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.

Nice waterfalls. Hiked here a year ago though and there was not much water, just a trickle. This time, thanks to Irma, there was good flow.

Not a difficult hike at all, pretty cool views.

Well maintained trails, both with the trail markings and the trails themselves. Great place with scenic views.

Beautiful views....moderate trail with rocks, tree roots, and steps to climb
