Probably the nicest and well maintained trails I've been on in Georgia. it was clean, simple and rewarding. if you are looking for rugged/off the grid, this isn't the spot. But if you have family in town or a place to explore with kids, this is a great spot in Northeast Ga.

Just did the trek down and back and WOW it is a fun experience just make sure you're in good health and have good shoes as it can get hard at parts especially coming back up!

The gorge trail is difficult once you get to the river, and then hiking down along the river to Sliding Rock and then up out of the gorge. The steps are easy going down and up depending on your level of fitness. But once you get off of the steps and are scrambling across the river, then alongside the river, then across again at Sliding Rock and then up and out of the gorge...well, that is more difficult. We are a couple in our 50's and 60's and in good shape physically, but if you are young a fit, then "difficult" is probably too strong a word.

Had my dogs with me so was only able to do the upper portion. Would love to go back and do the bottom half.
