    Leaving the beautiful Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center parking lot, the trail begins at the toll booth. It meanders through
    firly open woodlands, mostly sandy logging roads with occasional rocks to surmount. Well marked trails, yet I discovered a new
    trail with survey markers still on trees. This trail eventually lead me back to the marked trail; however, part of the way I
    was on Wildlife Management Land, not a good thing during hunting season.

    Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

    "In the northwest section of Tallulah Gorge State Park, the Shortline Trail and two Terrora trails explore Tallulah Falls Lake and neighboring hills above the dam. The paved Shortline Trail (1.4 miles one-way) follows an old railroad bed through a peaceful stretch of forest, a good route for people with limited mobility or those who want to run or walk for exercise. The Terrora Lake Loop (0.5 mile) circles a small lake and runs through an array of habitats, including wetlands, rocky cliffs, hemlock stands, and pine-hardwood forest. The Terrora Upper Loop crosses a tributary stream and low hills east of the lake. The route I describe combines the three paths into an easy yet interesting dayhike." Read more
