awesome views from the bottom of the canyon. be prepared to get a little wet on the canyon floor. the rim trail is neat too with old cars at the halfway point.

As a beginner and someone very into geomorphology, I LOVED THIS HIKE!

The trail was easier than I expected and quite busy. The wet sandy stream beds felt wonderful on bare feet ;) We had a k9 companion in our group and he loved it too!

This was such a pretty hike! Definitely recommend good grip hiking shoes because of the smooth surfaces and shoes you don't mind getting covered in orange clay mud and possibly even waterproof to keep your toes dry unless you plan on being very careful. My friend and I brought my dog and she loved it also! I plan on going back!

the views were beautiful! the trails were easy, so much nature to take in. We just did, trails 1-5 this time with the little one.

The trails go through creek beds and it's mostly shaded.

Great for kids or dog walking. Nothing too challenging, but lots of interesting sites. Hiked this with a small group of friends and had a picnic at the end.

Very fun, 2-3hr hike. Took my dog, who loved it. Very easy to locate, trails clearly marked. Did not get a chance to do top upper loop due to rain, but enjoyed the day a lot. Will return.

Odd, misplaced "canyon" about 20 miles northeast of Lake George in Eufaula, Alabama.

First, and most important, it's $5 for a vehicle to enter so be prepared.

A short but steep descending trail falls into the canyon floor. The trails consist of sandy creek beds trailing off into each small, wooded canyon. The creek beds were wet today but never enough to come over the sole of my shoes. Small rivulets of water drain slowly in all directions. Oh and the water and sand is very red from the clay so you might get a bit stained.

The numerous warnings to not climb the canyons doesn't seem to deter many nitwits who freely climbed about as they liked. So is the state of our country, right? But I digress. The canyon walls are very fragile and should be left alone folks.

One last thing...come to find out, the "canyons" are mostly man-made. Years of aggressive farming and erosion reeked havoc on the soft rock and developed what is now the state park you see. Interesting.

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 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.

This really is a gem in Georgia! The day we went, the rain had passed and the colors were just popping! The main "path" through the canyons is along a river bed with imfamous Georgia red clay, silt, sand and other deposits. Trails to the 9 canyons are marked and vary between stream beds and regular trails. This is an easy hike, kid friendly. We even saw someone with a stroller, but the wheels became completely caked in clay. Similarly, plan on having muddy shoes! (there is a water faucet and boot scrapers at the visitors center).

If you want gorgeous views for little effort, this place has your name written all over it. Wear clothes/shoes you won't mind getting wet. I recommend getting there right after they open the trails because it was very busy while I was there and difficult to get a decent shot without a duck face or selfie stick in the background.

An enjoyable hike in the canyon (be prepared to walk through the wet riverbed). Canyons 4 & 5 gave excellent views. The overlooks around the rim provided awesome views.

Great trail for a family. The way down to and up from the canyon floor is steep, but doable. Lots of creeks (shallow and muddy) to walk through/across. Perfect for a cool fall day.

What a nice treat. While camping in Florida, we drove into Georgia just to hike it. Not disappointed at all that we did!

Breath-taking Views! We came from Ft. Rucker, AL looking for a good day trip hike. Did the 7-mile Red Blaze Trail--very easy--which we realized is actually more like 4 miles, 7 total if you add the canyon loop trail. Also explored #4-5 of the canyon floor area. LOTS of people on a Saturday, but there was hardly anyone on the Red blaze trail so that was nice!

Beautiful day. Walked with dog. Views from trail not interesting but worth seeing. Interesting abandoned cars along the way. The Butch Anthony Museum is also close by in Seale if you are headed in that direction.
