Congratulations!

Congrats to Tallulah Gorge State Park Assistant Manager Jessica James-Weems who was recently honored during a statewide Rangers Conference.  She received  the Customer Service Award for her hard work and dedication to not only Tallulah Gorge, but it’s visitors as well.   Whether it’s issuing trail permits, working in retail, encouraging guests along the trails, or greeting campers during nightly rounds, her inviting personality and dedication to customer service earned her the award according to DNR resource officials.

Enjoy the hike!

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!

The Atlanta Journal Constitution named our North Rim trail a must-hike.  A moderate trail with multiple overlooks, the hiker experiences our great treasure.
