Tallulah Gorge State Park

Located in Georgia, the 1,000-foot deep Tallulah Gorge is one of the deepest canyons in the U.S. The 2,700-acre state park named after this impressive geographical feature has trails that lead to scenic overlook spots where hikers can see down into the gorge. They can also cross a suspension bridge that hangs over the river. The park grants 100 permits per day to people who want to make the long and steep trek from the top to the bottom of this impressive canyon.
