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.

Definitely worth a visit. Had to stay on the loop trail because of rain in the previous days the canyon floor was wet. Probably passable but best to save for the next visit. Will definitely return at a cooler drier time of year

This area is beautiful and a nice hike around the inner canyons and outer rim. It was a super hot day when we hiked so bring extra water inside canyons.

The trail starts out confusing as you start in a drainage area where blazes are far and few between; good news is the pathway is fairly obvious and well beaten. Primative campsites are available, the first campsite you come across has a standing shelter but the further you get on the trail the less likely you are to see trash and what not.

the overall experience and view was good. the red trail needs to have more trackable markers after mile marker 2. my recommendation is a more detailed mapping of the trail and more signs on the red trail. the white trail was very detailed and gives u a direct route to the canyon. the ranger staff at the visitor center was very nice and helpful

beautiful hike, definitely moderate level. lots of long steep stretches. the blazes are sometimes very far apart and the signage can be confusing, but it's a beautiful hike through interesting territory.

Interesting area. Not as deep a canyon as I had thought.

As others have said, it doesn't get too scenic until the last couple miles which is also a part of the canyon loop trail. I suggest taking the short 3 mile loop if you just want to see the canyon, you won't miss anything if you don't take the red blaze trail.

This is great hike I recommend doing the bottom first then the loop around the top. It will really help you to see the majestic beauty of it.

Wasn't bad. But nothing special. Gnats are horrible. Bring off.
