|Come join us on a trip to Tallulah Gorge to view an Aesthetic Water Release, walk the rim trails, and take in the beautiful fall foliage colors. We will view water flows of 5 times the normal level through the gorge and over various falls. We will hike the North Rim trail, Inspiration Trail, down across the suspension bridge, down to Hurricane Falls platform near the base of the gorge, up to the South Rim Trail, and loop back around to the visitor center.|
We will then leave Tallulah Gorge SP and drive about 5 miles south to Panther Creek Recreation Area. From the parking area, we will then hike the scenic Panther Creek trail about 3.1 miles (6.2 round trip) to beautiful Panther Creek Falls.
The weather forecast for Tallulah Falls on Sunday is for Sunny skies with a high of 62 degrees! And I was just at the Gorge a few days ago and the foliage is about at its peak color.
