I can't believe we live less than 3 hours away from this place, and have never been here before. We were a little tired of the beach and wanted a more mountainous getaway, and stumbled upon this gem of a state park in northwestern Georgia, just a little over 30 minutes south of downtown Chattanooga. At 3500 acres, it's one of Georgia's largest parks, and the scenery...wow, it reminded me of Yosemite in a way. Not as dramatic, but pretty darn impressive with the rugged canyon punctuated by distant ribbons of waterfalls down the canyon walls. There are two impressive waterfalls way down in the canyon, and a rim hiking trail that "Backpacker" magazine has rated one of the top 10 hikes in the entire U.S. We did that hike, and agree, it's one of the easiest and most beautiful hikes we've done anywhere. There are 2 nice RV campgrounds, primitive campgrounds, yurts, cabins, disk golf, playgrounds, it's really set up for fun. If you're in the Chattanooga area, do yourself a favor, and drive down to this beautiful and easily accessible only about 7 miles off I-59 from Trenton, Georgia.
