Very easy to find and several overlook points make it an easy walk. We didn’t go to the canyon floor so I’m not sure how strenuous that hike would be. Very impressed and hard to believe that it is located in Georgia! Beautiful!

First time there with family. We really enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery. It was something new and different to explore. Only cost 5 dollars per vehicle to get in. There's not really anything around so pack a lunch and water.

Good day trip State Park. You will not need to spend more than 3-4 hours here. The weather was fantastic in March. I would visit before the summer heat! Beautiful photo opportunities & very easy hiking. Good for families and pets.

This Canyon is not advertised well. Few directions to it, and we were camped at Florence Marina State Park, right across the way road wise. Could be because it at risk of deterioration. It is part of the Providence State park, which has primitive camping....More

Entering the park is a bit unusual if the booth is staffed, as you pay through the passenger side window. I was traveling alone and ended up having to get out of the car and walk around it to pay the gentleman in the booth....More

My fiance and I were tipped off about this place, by the proprietor of a nearby restaurant. What a fantastic find! If you're in reasonable shape, the white loop trail should take you about 3 hours, with adequate time to explore the "8" canyons. I...More
