5. Tallulah Gorge State Park (Georgia)

This state park is located two hours north of Atlanta, so it is easily accessible. With its luxurious forests, the Tallulah Gorge State Park has many attractions to discover, such as the Tallulah River’s 1,000-foot-deep canyon, the Tallulah Falls, and the Tallulah Falls Lake.

One thing to know is that the park issues only 100 hiking permits per day. So, if you want to be sure that you get one, we advise you to arrive early in the morning. Maybe you are not a morning person, but just imagine gazing at the sunrise while you are on the road to get there. It sounds so much better now, doesn’t it? Also, the permit is free, and you will get access to all of the trails in the park, including the one that goes to Sliding Rock.

Even if you miss the permit, don’t worry because you can still have access to the beautiful view. You can climb to the rim of the gorge, and one more thing is that you can visit the suspension bridge. If you are not the active type that enjoys hiking, this might be more than enough for you.
