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.
