Surrounded by the beauty of the Chattahoochee National Forest and near Lakes Tallulah and Rabun, Tallulah River Walk offers its guests breathtaking scenery as well as a variety of outdoor activities. Beginning from the center of Tallulah Falls, you can follow a 500-yard walking trail along the upper edge of Tallulah Gorge, believed to be the oldest natural gorge on the continent. Stop at one of the pavilions along the trail to see some of the rock formations, flora and fauna, and the five waterfalls in the more than 1,000-foot-deep gorge. To the south of the resort is the mountain community of Toccoa, popular with tourists for the water recreation activities on Lake Hartwell. Since the early 19th century tourists have been coming to the town to see the 186-foot-high Toccoa Falls, not only for their beauty, but because they are higher than Niagara Falls.
