Tallulah Gorge State Park, Tallulah Falls

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Rabun County
To see the six waterfalls that cause the Tallulah River to drop nearly 150 m (500 ft), visit Tallulah Gorge State Park, a 1,000 hectare (2,600 acre) wilderness area. The sprawling park surrounds a 300 m (1,000 ft) deep river gorge, considered one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia." Just above the gorge you can also see a century-old hydroelectric dam, built in 1913 to generate electricity needed to run Atlanta's streetcars. The dam activates regular white-water releases, providing opportunities for white-water rafting and kayaking. Hikers love to explore the suspension bridge, which hangs 24.4 m (80 ft) above the gorge. Stop by the interpretative visitor center if you’d like to hike to the gorge’s floor because you’ll need a permit; 100 are distributed each day.
