Cloudland Canyon State Park, Rising Fawn

(440+ reviews on the web)
State Park Nature / Park
Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and exceptional hiking. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, and elevation differs from 800 to 1,980 feet. Overnight guests can choose from new yurts, cottages near the canyon edge, a modern campground and spacious, walk-in tent sites. Backpackers can enjoy camping in a hemlock grove on the 2-mile Backcountry Loop.

The most spectacular view into the canyon is an easy walk from the picnic area; however, hikers can also explore a rim trail or journey to the canyon floor by a series of staircases. Two waterfalls cascade over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below, with their flow depending on recent rains. This Waterfalls Trail is part of the popular Canyon Climbers Club. Backpackers, mountain bikers and equestrians can explore several miles on the Cloudland Connector Trail.

  • Great place with waterfalls. The trip down to the bottom of the canyon is not too bad but I counted over 600 steps back to the top. You have to be in shape to take it all in but I highly recommend it....  more »

  • I hesitate to leave a review because I don't want this wonderful family secret let out of the bag. That said, it's too lovely not to say happy things about this well-run place. Our family has traveled...  more »
