G3 Adventures

Hike like the locals at Cloudland Canyon by starting at the bottom of the gulch & hike 2 miles to the bottom of the waterfalls. Going up 600 stairs, we will pass Hemlock & Cherokee Falls. After reaching the top, we will reward ourselves with a 3-mile hike going down! Along the way, learn about the plants, animals, geology and history of the park. Bring a sack lunch to enjoy along the trail.

Insider Tips

Each vehicle must display a GA State Park Pass. These are available upon arrival at the park for $5. Everyone must sign a liability waiver. Those under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign for them, and they must be attending with at least one adult.
