Tallulah Gorge - 360 Tour

This 360 tour shows one of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah Gorge, which is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain one of the limited permits to hike to the gorge floor. A suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom, providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls. A paved path follows an old railroad bed, perfect for strollers and bicycles, while mountain bikers can test their skills on a challenging 10-mile trail.

Exhibits in the park’s Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center highlight the rich history of this Victorian resort town, as well as the rugged terrain and fragile ecosystem of the area. An award-winning film takes viewers on a dramatic journey through the gorge, including footage of rock climbers and kayakers.
