Great hike with small kids. We were in and out in about 2 hours, including a half hour stay at the bottom. Will definitely come back!

Those are not the right directions or need to be updated. We followed them line by line and it ended up dead ending into a sub division. Pretty frustrating when your new to the area.

Beautiful area. I'm training for a marathon in January and was hoping for more. This is a great place to walk the dog or stroll your kiddos, however, for a distance run you may wanna look elsewhere. From the parking lot it's about a mile and a half Norway and a mile the other. The parking lot is roughly in the middle of both paths. Beautiful scenery

A Walk Back in Time: Cloudland Canyon State Park
by T. Hurt

3 Completed 3 Reviews

Haven't done Cloudland in a while but from what I remember is it is a nice hike numerous gorgeous views and the tune that alway rolls through my head while I am there is, of course, the tune Georgia On My Mind. The only downfall is getting down one of the two waterfall trails to find no waterfall but nevertheless, Cloudland Canyon is good exercise. I recommend going a bit further from the turn in to the park to the hang gliding ledge to check out those daredevils! Great views there too!

Panther Creek Trail

i love this trail. It was good, fairly long, well mapped and the falls at the end was beautiful and refreshing. we spent a good one hour just relaxing on the rocks in the river. We could hear the cars speeding in the highway as we started and ended the trail. But once you get going, it was all green and calm and beautiful.

But this is a popular place i believe. it really started to get crowded with the day. The best time to hike would be early in the morning to beat the crowd and return before noon when you start seeing more people.

Raven Cliff Falls Trail

It is a pretty good trail. two small rapids to start with which was so much fun. It is a easy-mod hike for beginners.

The falls at the end is quite good and if we climb a few more yards, we could reach to get a better view of the falls. Overall, a good place and worth coming.

Island Ford Trail

Hiked on Saturday with some friends. When we started out there was mist on the river, and you could just make out the forms of fishermen on the water. On our return on the same trail, the mist had lifted and the view was sparkling. Not a strenuous hike, few dogs, quieter than most trails, well marked. The nice part is Island Ford is headquarters for park service and we were able to get maps for other trails.

Pine Mountain Recreation Area West Loop

I love this trail mainly because its of moderate difficulty and close to home. I usually do both the west loop and the east loop for an awesome workout.
