    Very unique, possibly the best canyon / waterfall in Georgia!

    This is definitely a sight to behold. My son and I couldn't believe we had never heard of Cloudland previously. Thank you Tripleblaze for opening our eyes to this amazing Georgia park. We hiked the waterfall trail in about 2 1/2 hours. I know the park says it can be done faster, but we took our time and took a lot of pictures. The trail is challenging but doable. I would recommend giving yourself at least 2 days to visit and walk more trails.

    Cloudland Canyon ranks at the top with Amicalola Falls and Talullah Gorge with me and my family. If you have a big family with smaller kids, you probably might want to avoid this one until they are older. There are places where if a kid gets away from you then it's game over quickly. Other than that the views are gorgeous! My wife and I really like it when we get a chance to come here by ourselves and sit on the rocks on the west rim trail and talk alone. I haven't camped here yet, but my brother and his family have. They love the camp ground here. We're going to camp here this summer or fall.

    Saturday December 3, 2011, I hiked the West Rim Trail (7 miles). Otherwise noted as the Yellow Trail. Outstanding photography opportunities throughout my travels. I spent 4 hours and barely was able to complete the yellow trail due to the magnificant scenery. The leaves were gone so I had unobstructed views of the streams, waterfalls, stairs and across the Canyon. Many bridges to cross also allowing for great photography. The water along the streams were rapid not trickling. The water falls were raging not pathetic. It was better them Amicalola Falls by a landslide and the canyon was terrific. I am rating this my best hike yet even better then Tallahula Gorge because it offered more variety in my opinion. This is a definite two day park but if you only have day go directly to the falls then do the yellow trail.
