People tend to check in during these times:
Get there early in the morning to get the passes to get to the gorge floor!
Make your presence at 7:30AM to get one of 100 passes 👊
They are doing a controlled water release, so no "floor" permits are available at this time. With release of water the falls are how they once were before dams built.
Some steep, long stairs, but the views are absolutely worth it. Everything is also so well-constructed, from the reused tire rubber trails to metal steps.
Beautiful place! I loved it.
Beautiful hikes but start early in the day so you have time to get back before dark if going to bottom. Must have permit for that hike but not for north trail
What great views!!!
Awesome place! Make sure to take the stairs to the bottom!
Hike down to the suspension bridge!
One of the beat family hiking places in Georgia
Short-line Trail is great for walking with a stroller. Plenty of nature to keep my little guys curiosity busy!
Bring a bathing suit, lunch, sunscreen, change of clothes, and lots of water. If you go for the rock scramble on the way out, be ready -- it's not for the faint of heart!
The bathrooms at the beach bath house are the nicest I've ever seen in a State Park.
Try the Nancys dark chocolate peanuts.
Do the Gorge Floor. I start at Sliding Rock, cross Bridal Veil & hike toward Hurricane Falls. I avoid the stairs entirely - too crowded. Sliding Rock is steep, but views awesome & it's shaded.
For 3wknds in April & Nov, they increase flow for expert kayakers to paddle. It's fun to watch them run Oceana. Bring binoculars!
Set to release in 2013, "Killing Season," starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta was filmed in several spots around Georgia, including Tallulah Gorge State Park.

Arrive early to get a pass to hike all the way to the swimming hole at the bottom.
Gorge floor permits are limited to 100 hikers /day. Not your ordinary stroll in the woods!
Go to the information desk at the Interpretive Center for any questions and a map to help you hike the gorge! We went to every lookout point--it's amazing from every view!
Grab yourself a Cheerwine and Moonpie.
More like Tallulah GORGEOUS!!
RC and moonpie is a requirement
Check out the view of Hawthorne Pool, Tempest Falls and Pool!
Beautiful trails and the view from the rim of the gorge is amazing!
Wear a good pair of hiking shoes.
Make sure you have cash bc the guard is a dick. Then you'll have to break in
Amusing to watch people gasping for breath on way up stairs. I love to mention the escalator or cable car just to "eff" with them.
Get a Cherrywine!
Make ure u chk out the bbq upstairs. It was actually good
Don't lean too far over
Awesome place to be in the fall.
Lots of great overlooks of Tallulah Gorge. Get a permit and head down to the river for a swim on a hot day
Lots of steps, great views!
Bring lots of water. When they say it's strenuous they mean it.
Make sure you get a hiking permit from the station if you really want to do exploring, lots of scary signage around the park! I didn't know State Parks were so strict!
Lots of stairs down to the bottom, but it's well worth it!
