Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful view of the gorge and falls. This is definitely a must visit! Visit the visitor’s center first. Lots of exhibits and a very good 15 min movie on the history of the gorge. Very nice gift shop. The staff are quite knowledgeable and attentive to your needs at the visitor center. Oh, and don’t worry about having to hike down the gorge to see it all. There are several view stations within an easy walk of the center.

    My entire family wanted to visit this trail so my kids were able to bring their bikes, I used my stroller, and my husband brought the dog. The suspension bridge is beautiful and very sturdy. The water is crystal clear and would be so much fun in summer. This is a great trail for aid afternoon stroll that doesn't take long at all. We will certainly visit again.

    Recently my brother and I hiked the trail to Panther Creek Falls. We are both experienced hikers and have completed this trail in the past. If you like a trail with numerous challenges then this 7 mile adventure is for you. From the parking area you walk across Highway 441 where the hike begins. The trail is natural terrain and heavy erosion makes it very rough in places. It follows Panther creek downstream for most of the way as it winds through towering trees in the mostly hardwood forest. It is well marked so it is easy to follow. Along the way there are creeks to ford, lots of steps to climb, fallen trees to navigate, wooden bridges to cross, as well as massive rock outcrops that you pass under, over and around. Sections of the trail are extremely narrow and drop sharply and suddenly to the creek below (there are cable handrails in place to try and help keep hikers safe). Be prepared for a few elevation changes along the way. You will also pass multiple campsites just off the trail all located beside the creek. They are all first-come, first-camp so arrive early. As you approach the falls at the 3.5 mile mark you will cross an extremely large rock outcrop that descends to the base of Panther Creek falls. The trail here has been relocated and restored in the last several years making it much easier and safer than before. At the base of the large multi-tiered waterfall there is a sandy beach with huge fallen trees positioned so you can sit, relax and enjoy the view. The day we were there a group of folks were swimming and enjoying the cool water at the base of the falls. It’s a great resting spot before you start your return hike. We had a great time. Highly recommend.
    ...Parking...
    There are less than 10 parking spaces. When the lot is full people park along Highway 441. There is a $4.00 dollar day use charge. Restroom & picnics tables near the parking area.
    FYI... Chad Black Habersham County Emergency Services Director states that there has already been three “sick call” rescues since July 11th and six overall rescue operations staged since March
    (including a hiker who took a 30 foot fall from the trail onto a sand bar in the creek). This is a difficult trail. The high heat index and the humidity of the summer months only compound the difficulty. If you are not an experienced hiker or in good physical condition I would recommend you steer clear of this 7 mile hike at least until the fall months arrive.

    It takes some physical effort to get a view of these waterfalls but you will not regret the effort. It's best to view this during higher waterflow, such as springtime or a day after heavier rain.

    I had visited this park some years ago so this was just a brief stop with family. The visitor center has plenty of parking, a large gift shop and very instructive displays. From this location, you can take a short 1/4 mile walk to an overlook of falls.

    Hurricane falls is located inside the Tallulah gorge state park, it required $5 for a day pass for admission to the park. You can walk the Hurricane Falls trail to see the falls in a closer up view, but there are several hundreds of steps down and up if you want to go to the suspension bridge which across the river, on the bridge, you can see the falls in a closer look, the falls itself is not very impressive, but the suspension bridge is the point of attraction. Of course, there are several overlook point along the South and North rim trail, you can take a look to the scenery of the Tallulah gorge and the waterfalls there.

    It’s located in the upper part of the Gorge, you can see it at overlook point #4 inside the Tallulah Gorge state park, or you can also see the dam when you across the road between the 2 rims trails. There is a stairs to go down and see the dam at a closer look.

    It was a little diversion from our main route but very worthwhile. Beautiful view of Tallulah Gorge. Definitely a place to stop. Located on Tallulah Gorge Scenic Loop. March is a bit off season here but beauty of the area remains.
    The overlook includes outdoor area with vista and the 1912 friendly building with unconventional gift shop, covered overlook porch - a great unusual place to explore for the whole family.
    The parking is free.

    If you want to hear some old fashioned bluegrass music, sitting around a warm fire in a relaxed environment, while making new friends form far and near, this is a must-do experience.

    I love this store! It used to be at the Tallulah Falls Overlook and we would stop there every time that we visited the area. This store has many great items: natural soaps, snacks, souvenirs, t-shirts, etc. I have at least 3 t-shirts from this store and they are my favorites. You should definitely put this on your list of things to do while in the area.

    Lots of great little gift ideas and souvenirs. The decor is really cool with the books all over the ceiling and a viewing deck off to the side. Stephanie was a wonderful person to visit with and helped point out great little finds that I missed as I was shopping. She was so entertaining to talk with as well.
