Jail Tale Trails

Make plans to attend our annual Jail Tales Trail.  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.

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!
