Each month during the full moon, visit Tallulah Gorge and take a mile and a half hike under the full moon.
One of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah Gorge is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor (100 per day, not available during water releases). The suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom, providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls. Tightrope walkers have twice crossed the gorge, and visitors can still see towers used by Karl Wallenda.
2013 dates for this activity are: June 22-23, July 21-22, Aug. 19-20, Sept. 19-20, Oct. 18-20, Nov. 15-18, and Dec. 15-16. Times will vary by date. Check the park's website for hours.
