Full-Moon, Suspension Bridge Hike at Tallulah Gorge

Have you ever been curious about hiking across a beautiful, but somewhat nerve-racking, suspension bridge? Have you ever been curious about what it would be like with under the full moon? 

Join a park ranger for a guided, 1-mile 
Full Moon Suspension Bridge Hike around Tallulah Gorge State Park. This unique nighttime hike takes you down the gorge staircase, across the suspension bridge, then up to the gorge rim – all under the full moon. This is a rare chance to see the gorge in moonlight, since the trails usually close at dark. Look for moonlight glistening off the waterfalls below. 


Tallulah Gorge State Park
338 Jane Hurt Yarn Drive
Tallulah Falls, GA 30573 
Rabun County  


Assorted dates from April 21st through December 13th

Hikers should be in good shape since the staircase up can be challenging. 
Tallulah Gorge State Park is one of the most beautiful areas in Georgia. Be sure to register in advance for this once in a lifetime experience.

For a weekend escape, stay overnight in the park’s campground or rent cabins just up Hwy. 441 at Black Rock Mountain State Park.

Hike is $5 plus $5 parking.
