Providence Canyon Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Providence Canyon area is known as “Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon,” for its unique geological features. The soils are very soft and erosive due to the elevation and geologic location of the park, and the area was once an ancient seabed that was drastically affected by farming practices during the 1800s.

Once trees and vegetation were removed, the soil eroded at an alarming rate. Ditches three to five feet deep were cut by the 1850s, and eventually the erosion led to sixteen canyons. Some are as deep as 150 feet and expose the colors of iron ore, manganese, kaolin, mica, and sandy clays."
