The North Rim Trail

Georgia, Road Trip, States

After a great film at the interpretive center here at Tallulah Gorge State Park in the Appalachian Mountains of north Georgia, we headed out to the North Rim Trail to get a look at one of the grandest canyons in the eastern United States. It’s awe inspiring especially on this late April day with dogwoods, azaleas, and mountain laurel in bloom. What our hike didn’t boast in length it made up for in descent down to the suspension footbridge over Hurricane Falls and the three hundred and ten step staircase climb back up again. We’ve earned a treat. Rumor has it there’s good ice cream at a tourist trap a few miles north of here.
