In hopes of getting a good dose of Vitamin D and breathtaking views within the 8-hour roap trip back home from North Carolina, we decided to take a pit stop at Tallulah Falls in North Georgia. Tallulah Falls (located 1.5 hours NE of Atlanta and just a few miles from i75) is the home of the Tallulah Gorge, a 1000 foot chasm that was carved by the Tallulah River. It’s the oldest natural gorge in the US and is second in depth to the Grand Canyon. The river drops nearly 600 feet as it ranges through the canyon, forming L’Eau d’Or, Tempesta, Hurricane, Oceana, and Bridal Veil Falls before joining the Chattooga River. The hike was about 3.5 miles and over 600 steps up and down. With a lot of sweat and eventually tears of joy, we were able to finish the hike with a sense of accomplishment and gratification. Though we only had time for a quick stop before sad return to interstatin’, Tallaluh offers trails, scenery, camping, swimming, and other mama nature perks that could've kept up there for days. The miles of lush rhododendron and mountain laurel, epic waterfall views from 1,200 foot cliffs, and discovery of rare native wildflowers only added to its initial panoramic charm. Next time ya pack up your car and head north from Florida make this a stop on your list. It's more than worth it!
