Tempesta Falls at Tallulah Gorge


Very important change about the photo walk tomorrow. The Gorge level is too high to walk to the falls, but they are still doing a hike along the upper rim.

Waterfalls can be seen in the distance with good scenic views. This hike is 2 hours long and lasts from 10-12. A ranger will lead the hike.

Everyone is now going on their own. We will NOT be meeting as a group!

You still would need to make your reservation with them. 706-754-7981. At this time, there may or may not be enough people to do the walk. You will have to contact them.

Field Trip: Tempesta Falls at Tallulah Gorge

Date/Time:  Saturday June 16, 2008, 8:00am-2:00pm

Address:  205 Old Commerce Rd, Athens, GA 30607-1011

Reservations:  (706) 754-7981

Cost: $5/person


Please read all very carefully!! This is rescheduled from our rained out trip. This is a **Tallulah Gorge** sponsored hike, but several of us are planning to go and thought a few more of you may like to join us. Space is limited so please call (706) 754-7981 to reserve your spot today. We’ll meet at Sandy Creek Nature Center at 8 a.m. to carpool up.

We will drive to Tallulah Gorge State Park, check in by 9:30, and get in a few shots until the hike starts at 10 a.m.

Enjoy the rare opportunity to walk to the base of Tempesta falls. This area is not normally open to the public. This is a short but strenuous hike which consists of going down 310 stairs, getting off the beaten trail to hike down steep embankments and along the river to the base of Tempesta falls. There is a $5 per a person cost. Parking is also $5. Wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring snacks and lots of water. Children must be 10 or older, no pets.

Officially the hike ends at 12, but we may decide to stick around and spend time shooting in the vicinity afterward. We’ll coordinate those details in the parking lot the morning of with everyone who attends so we can arrange carpools according to what time people want to return. (If you need to return at a precise time, you may wish to drive or coordinate with a driver beforehand.)

Bring a sack lunch!
