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.

Short hike down, but longer coming back up! Waterfall is absolutely beautiful. . Make sure to see both..

Beautiful trail, went during last autumn. Great sites of the river and waterfalls.

Great views of canyon on rim trail. No sure about it being on any top 10 list but it was nice. Trail is heavily trafficked and show signs of wear and tear in a few locations. Nice area altogether though. .

Beautiful place. Well-maintained and the falls are gorgeous, there are two. If you can’t do stairways this is not the place for you. There are 600 stairs if you go to both ends of the waterfall trail.

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.
