L’Eau d’Or Falls, Georgia

L’Eau d’Or Falls in March 2009

I am not a big fan of heights. Tallulah Gorge does nothing to calm this fear. When visiting Tallulah Gorge, you’ll be able to see drops of 750+ feet, and boy that can be weird. There are multiple waterfalls on the river below.

L’Eau d’Or Falls Falls is the only waterfall that I got a very good view of from above. You can walk down to the river below. Let me correct that statement. You can climb down 650 steps to get to a suspension bridge that hangs 85 feet above the bottom of the river. Anybody can go the suspension bridge, though only a certain number of people are allowed to hike further into the gorge. Ask the park rangers for more information. I definitely wasn’t going to do that, though.


  1. From Clayton, Georgia head south on US-23/US-441/GA-15.
  2. On your left, you’ll see a sign for the entrance to Tallulah Gorge State Park. Turn left and head down that road.
  3. Park in the parking lot, and follow the multitude of different trails to explore the park.

Accessiblity: 10/10 (easy, from the “rim”)
Height: 46′
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip

Where in the World is L’Eau d’Or Falls?
