Ask DJ Lyons: Waterfalls at Tallulah Gorge State Park in Georgia

Waterfalls in Tallulah Gorge State Park

Do you enjoy waterfalls of all shapes and sizes? I know that I do. Here are photos and a video to watch of the waterfalls at Tallulah Gorge State Park. You can find this a few miles south of Clayton, Georgia in a little town called Tallulah Falls, Georgia.

As I drove back home from my evening storytelling performance in Johns Creek, Georgia, the night before, I decided to take the scenic route home.

After spending the night in a Clayton, Georgia, hotel, I drove 12 miles south from my location to reach Tallulah Gorge State Park.

It drizzled all day. I simply took my umbrella with me to help protect my camera and my head from the rain. This park was definitely worth the trip. I look forward to returning to this park someday when the weather is sunny and perhaps there are falls leaves covering the trees.

These photos of the waterfalls at Tallulah Gorge State Park were taken on March 4, 2011.

You can hear the rain coming down plus the soothing sound of the waterfall. I absolutely adore waterfalls.

Someday, I hope to go back to this park on a sunny day.

Map given to me by that gentleman I passed on trail

This was the map given to me by that gentleman I passed on the trail. Due to the rain, I only went to the upper overlooks of 1, 2, and 3. Someday, I hope to return and do some of the lower trails that involve walking down hundreds of stairs.

When I first arrived at this park, I entered the Visitor Center and took pictures of the nature displays. I also paid my $5 parking fee.

Afterward, I headed out onto the trails. I had forgotten to get a trail map. Fortunately, I met a gentleman who had finished his hike. He generously gave me his map to keep.

Hiking Georgia, 2nd (State Hiking Guides Series)

Georgia beckons hikers with nearly 1,000 miles of trails that tunnel through flowering rhododendron thickets, follow streams of the northern mountains, crisscross historic paths in rolling foothills, and wind among towering pines of the coastal plain. Hiking Georgia, Second Edition, the only guide to the entire state, covers well-known areas but also introduces hikers to some relatively undiscovered places. Author Donald W. Pfitzer, naturalist and former assistant regional director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southeast Region, describes more than 100 trails that vary in length and difficulty. Choose from an easy one-hour stroll along a quiet nature trail, a trek along 80 miles of the Appalachian Trail, or a medium distance that suits you. Recently revised and expanded, this guide contains accurate information, detailed maps, and photos that depict the landscape of the Peach State’s backcountry: the come-hither curve of an insectivorous swamp plant, rivers and waterfalls, and historic battlefields. It also includes tips on hiking with children and backcountry safety and ethics.

Amazing photos! I love water falls since it is an experience that combines water, light and solid rock. I can stand or sit and watch water falls for ever. Thank you for sharing your great adventure and give me the opportunity to see a beautiful place that I probably never will see in real life! Thanks again:) Tina!

I really can’t say! I love powerful waterfalls with lots of water because they are magnificent. But also smaller waterfalls have their beauty and there the rocks play a more prominent role and the water gives a more tranquil sound. That’s why I love waterfalls, every one is unique!
