We were driving home to Alabama from FLorida and stumbled on this. We stopped to see the canyon. We were very surprised this was in Georgia and we did not know about it!

The location is out of the way, but worth the drive to see. It's amazing view and getting to walk down to the floor of the canyon is worth it. Go early in the morning because it gets very hot down there with no wind...More
