$5 fee to park at the trailhead. The incline on this trail is moderate until the end. The trail follows a river the whole way in, allowing for great views, and opportunity to cool down or for pets to get a quick drink. The trail is fun, with lots of different terrain to navigate which keeps it interesting. The falls area is amazing, and a great place to enjoy the water. Bicycles in wilderness are illegal and subject to fines. Hiking past the end is discouraged. The scramble at the end up to the top off the trail and is heavily eroded. Please, respect the landscape and its resources! Show more

The Waterfalls Trail begins on a paved section of the park at the main overlook. Parking is available in an adjacent lot. The trail progresses into the canyon on a 40-degree slope. Most of the trail consists of gravel and stairsteps, numbering over 1200 in all. Both waterfalls cascade off sheer faces at 60 and 90 feet, and are among the most beautiful in the state. Swimming and climbing on rocks are strictly forbidden, and regulations are enforced.Show more

This hiking trail offers spectacular views of Georgia's Chattahoochee River and is just a short drive from the city of Atlanta. Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) preserves a 48-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River in North Georgia between Atlanta and Lake Lanier. Based within the Indian Trail District of the CRNRA the East Palisades Trail features a loop trail of high, rocky bluffs offering breathtaking views of the river. It's a popular place for trail running, hiking, fishing and walking dogs. There are two parking lots in East Palisades that you can start from to access the trailheads. Indian Trail Parking Lot (Closest street address is 1400 Indian Trail NW, Atlanta, GA 30339) and Whitewater Creek Parking Lot ( Closest street address is 4001 Whitewater Creek Rd NW Atlanta, GA 30327). This is a National Park Service Trail so there is a $5 Parking Fee. The park is patrolled by United States Park Rangers and its headquarters and visitor center are located at the Island Ford Unit of the park (1978 Island Ford Parkway in Sandy Springs, Georgia). DO NOT park along the road that leads to the parking lot—even if you see other cars doing it! Those "no parking" signs ARE enforced, and the fine is a steep $130. Visitors interested in other great hikes in the area should check out the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell or the West Palisades Trail and historic Marietta Paper Mill across the river.Show more

The current response to the COVID-19 emergency has closed several trails and recreation sites in Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests. Please see website for up to date info: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/conf/recreation Please note part of the trail may closed due to a downed tree. This is a great trail for all skill levels. Round trip the trail is about 2.2 miles. The first couple of hundred yards is an ADA paved trail that winds around to an observation deck overlooking the ravine and Davis Creek falls on the other side. From there it heads down a series of stairs and follows an old road bed which makes up the better part of the trail. There are wooden boardwalks and stairs occasionally along the way. Most of the trail is wide and flat with switchbacks. As you wind your way down to the bottom of the ravine you get occasional sounds of the waterfalls. The first sizable falls are viewed from the trail. The last descent down to the main falls is the steepest part of the trip and the trail gets a bit narrow and steep on the side. At the falls there is a nice observation deck with two observation platforms with built in benches. In the summer the creeks treat you with a natural air conditioning. Also with the high humidity there are lots of varieties of mushrooms everywhere which seem to entertain the kids. If you are looking for a full day, use this as a warm up for Raven Cliff Trail that is just up the road. $4 to park unless you have a Forest Service Pass. State Park passes are not accepted.Show more

Tallulah Gorge State Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(815)
Length: 1.8 mi • Est. 45 m
NOTE: The park is not issuing permits for the Gorge Floor as of July 2020, due to COVID-19 concerns. Please check here for updates: https://gastateparks.org/TallulahGorge Dogs allowed on rim trails only, not the Gorge Floor, Sliding Rock Trail, and Hurricane Falls Staircase. Dogs will not be able to complete this entire loop. Although mostly moderate, please note that this route is almost entirely stairs, which may be difficult for some visitors. The Tallulah Gorge is breathtaking! These trails are very well marked and stairs are very sturdy. The views of the waterfall are breathtaking. If you wish to visit the Gorge Floor, free permits (limited to 100 per day) are required and can be obtained at the Interpretive Center on the day of your visit. This allows you to go past the bottom of the stairs and onto the gorge floor, just outside the pool at the base of the waterfall. From there, there is a path through the woods and rocks that takes you down the river following all 3 waterfalls.Show more
