I have to be honest, when I read the review of the other Poster about the Gnats I laughed. I went out there today and experience them it was kind of annoying. The trail is not very attractive and the wooded area surrounding most of the trail that I saw was somewhat barren. you can see that there was a controlled burn done out there not long ago so there is not as much plant life is there would have been otherwise. If you are just looking to get away from stress or activity, this may be a good option for you. However if you're looking for beautiful scenery I would do not recommend this particular Trail.

This was a major disappointment! Our group of 5 regular hikers expected a nice wooded trail leading to a lake and boat launch. As we proceeded on our hike we were attacked by gnats! It never let up. The trail was dry and dusty and hundreds of Gnats!!! What was supposed to be a 10 mile RT was shortened to 6 miles. We couldn't stand the conditions. This is a relatively unattractive trail maybe worth taking in the winter if at all!

A long but fairly easy trail. The last two miles provide incredible views of the lake. At the four mile marker there’s a tremendous campsite. The trail ends at a beautiful boat launch and dock with an amazing view of the lake

One of the first good trail running spots you come to in the N GA mountains. 4.5 out and 4.5 back. After the first mile almost all downhill. Of course all uphill coming back. Easy to go out for another out and back because you know the going out part is easy. Good trails; not single track so pretty easy to run on.

Not much to see until the end at the lake but worth the hike down. Nice dock to sit on a end.

An easy in and out trail with nice, spotted views across the gorge. A clear, quiet Sunday afternoon, taking in fading, but still radiant fall foliage, created a peaceful locale for lunch on the dock. Adding a trip to Inspiration Point to watch kayakers brave the cold rapids, satisfyingly topped the 14-mile day.

A (free) back country permit is required for this 10 total mile out and back trail which starts at Tallulah Gorge State Park and ends at a boat launch & camping area on Tugaloo lake. 3600 feet of total elevation gain makes this trail a challenge if attempted after the stairs leading into the gorge on the main rim trails. Several back country campsites are available along the trail and a 4x4 road leading to a boat ramp can be used to access the trail terminus.
