Cloudland Canyon State Park: Overlook, West Rim, and Waterfalls Trails Professional Review and Guide

"A thousand feet deep, Cloudland Canyon is truly impressive—an immense gorge with great walls of vertical rock and a floor of lively streams and high waterfalls. Established in 1938, Cloudland Canyon State Park has long been a favorite destination in Georgia, and some trails are quite developed.

The Waterfalls Trail, which descends to the floor of the canyon, is comprised of stairs and platforms that allow a wide range of people to safely access the falls, one of which plunges 100 feet into a great pool of turquoise water. (Take note that the hike back up from Falls #2 is strenuous.) Equally inspiring are the views of the canyon from the West Rim Loop Trail, which hugs the lip of the gorge. The hike described below combines the Waterfall and West Rim trails into one extensive dayhike that is mostly moderate but does contain one strenuous ascent on the return trip from Falls #2."

Scenery was pretty but a LOT of people and only moderately challenging. More of a walk than a hike most of the time. Waterfalls were essentially non-existent.
