Enjoy the beautiful outdoors at Tallulah Gorge State Park.  The waterfall views are worth the hike up and down over 1000 stairs.  After your hike, be sure to stop at the gift shop to purchase a Friends of Tallulah Gorge t-shirt to commemorate your stair climb -- oh so many stairs -- but worth it!

Join the Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park at
9 am on September 29 for Your State Parks Day.  We will do trail clean up on the Shortline Trail.  Meet at the Shortline Trail parking area.  Parking fee waived for volunteers on this day.
See you then!!



The Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park sponsor an Adopt-an-Overlook/Trail program at the Park.  Volunteers adopt an Overlook or Trail, then visit it regularly to pick up trash, fallen limbs, and generally make sure the Overlook has no problems.  If there are problems, the volunteer contacts Park staff.  Below is a copy of the map with the Adopters marked.  If you would like to Adopt-an-Overlook or a Trail, email  foftgsp@gmail.com.  We look forward to having you join us.

It's time for Jail Tales Trail!!

Make plans to attend our annual Jail Tales Trail event from 6:30 - 8:00 pm on Friday, October 19, 2018.  The last hike begins at 7:45 pm.  Start your adventure at the "Jail" to hear tales from a professional story teller about the bygone days of Tallulah Gorge when trains brought throngs of passengers to visit this beautiful natural site.  Stroll a 1-mile paved, flat Shortline Trail as night falls in the woods and trot across the suspension bridge which swings and sways with every step.  Join the group around the campfire to roast marshmallows and hear the strumming sounds of a folk guitarist.  Hop aboard the hay ride back to your starting point. 

Bring a flashlight!  For families and fun-seekers of all ages.  Sponsored by Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park and Park staff.  Meet at the Jailhouse on Terrora Circle on the lakeside of the Park.  Event admission is free, annual parking pass or $5 parking fee required.

Come join us!
