Breathtaking! Tallulah Gorge offers some of the most incredible views in the area. Seven breathtaking waterfalls can be viewed here, five of which are easily visible from the rim of the gorge. Three trails will be described. First up are the North and South Rim Trails, which afford views of Oceana Falls, LEaudOr Falls, Tallulah Gorge Dam, Tempesta Falls, Hurricane Falls, and Caledonia Cascade. These falls are visible from various numbered overlooks along the rim. The Gorge Floor Trail takes you down into the gorge and offers views of Bridal Veil Falls (aka Sliding Rock), Oceana Falls, and Hurricane Falls, all from the base.
