Very nice hike specially the area of the gorge and waterfalls. Took the scenic route and then headed towards the WMA which provided added Mileage to our hike. Overall did 9.26 miles

there are a lot of trails depending on your skill level and interest. Getting a gorge floor permit is required if you want to hike the gorge floor. they only issue 100 permits a day, first come, first serve. IF there has been a recent heavy rain or there is a forecast for rain/tstorms, best to call ahead. They may not be able to tell you 100% if it is open day before, but can give you an idea. in spring/summer weekends, the permits are often gone by 11am.

I prefer to skip the stairs and access via silding rock trail. It is a very rustic trail, but the views are spectacular. you WILL be crossing the river either way - from the stairs, you rock hop, or if coming from Sliding Rock Trl, you cross above Bridal Veil Falls (a fun slide) HIGHLY recommend bringing a drybag or sturdy ziplock bags for any electronics and shoe that have good traction. NOT a hike for flip flops!

This place was a let down because I thought it was going to be an actual trail and not just stairs. Also there is a main highway that runs on the other side of the gorge that ruins the beautiful view.

This a terrific family hike. We did it with three generations (from 6 to 65). The view of the gorge is spectacular and unlike any other view nearby. Because of the park, it also has fabulous facilities and a small museum.

This is by far one of my favorite family hikes! Off the grid? No. Is there off the grid hiking in Tallulah outside the state park? Yes! I loved this hike! The scenery is literally second to none. If you plan on climbing however, make sure you call the day you plan on going because the rangers seem to make up their minds per the hour. Lol! Easy to moderate hike. I only say moderate because those stairs brought out the Rocky Balboa in me and trust me, even for a seasoned hiker like me you feel accomplished! Many views of the gorge, cascading and tumbling waterfalls... just gorgeous!
