Tallulah Gorge State Park
One of the most spectacular gorges in the eastern U.S., this chasm is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. The park's breathtaking views and the town's rich history make this area a favorite stopping point along U.S. Hwy 441 - the main route between Atlanta and the Great Smoky Mountains. The park's interpretive center features an award-winning film that takes viewers on a dramatic journey through the gorge. Tallulah Gorge State Park takes an aggressive position toward visitor safety and protection of natural resources. Due to the rugged terrain and fragile plant and animal life, visitors must obtain a free permit (limit 100/day) from the interpretive center before hiking into the gorge.
