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.
