Gorges State Park — Bearwallow Valley and Falls Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The area’s unusual climate is the result of warm, moist weather from the Gulf of Mexico that gets trapped by the southern edge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. The result is rainfall totals averaging 80 inches a year. (Consider: Asheville, just 45 miles to the north, averages 15 inches a year.) The resulting climate supports a variety of flora and fauna typically associated with a rain forest, including the rare green salamander and Oconee bell."
