Enjoy the beautiful outdoors at Tallulah Gorge State Park. The waterfall views are worth the hike up and down over 1000 stairs. After your hike, be sure to stop at the gift shop to purchase a Friends of Tallulah Gorge t-shirt to commemorate your stair climb -- oh so many stairs -- but worth it!
Your State Parks Day
Thanks to the many volunteers who helped spread mulch in the native plant garden and along the trails on September 27th. It was a beautiful day for volunteering outside! The Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park thank everyone who participated.
Join the Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park for a unique evening of storytelling and fun, with the first Jail Tales Trail. The family-friendly event will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, October 24 at the Shortline Trail at TGSP.
Jail Tales Trail begins with a leisurely walk from the parking area of the Shortline Trail near the old Tallulah Falls jail to a bonfire at the suspension bridge. Sing campfire songs at the bonfire with guitarist and singer Eric Miller, while you roast marshmallows and make S'mores. A hayride takes you back to the old Tallulah Falls jail, where you'll hear storyteller Mary Gene Cotten telling tales of old Tallulah Falls and the surrounding area.
"This will be a fun evening for the whole family," said Bill Purvis, Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park president. "We hope to make it an annual event. What could be better than a flashlight walk, a bonfire, hayride and storytelling?"
The first walk will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the last group will start at 8:30 p.m. The walk is flat, paved, and approximately one mile. Participants should bring a flashlight. There is a parking fee of $5 unless you have a valid yearly parking pass. Donations to Friends of TGSP will be accepted. For more info, call the park at 706-754-7970.
Tallulah Gorge is listed by Adventure Journal as one of America's 20
