Rising Fawn, Georgia
Cloudland Canyon State Park is located near the northwest corner of Georgia, near Chattanooga, Tennessee
Cloudland Canyon State Park is a 3,485 acre Georgia State Park located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain. One of the largest and most scenic parks in Georgia, it contains rugged geology, and offers visitors a range of vistas across the deep gorge cut through the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, where the elevation varies from 800 to over 1,800 feet. At the bottom of the gorge two waterfalls cascade across layers of sandstone and shale, ending in small pools below. The park was previously known as Sitton Gulch.

The Waterfalls Trail began on a paved section at the main overlook, and progressed into the canyon along a 40-degree slope. Most of the trail consisted of gravel and a 600-step staircase. The trail is generally considered to be a strenuous hike, which can take up to 90 minutes to complete.

About 0.8 of a mile from the parking lot, the Waterfall Trail led to a large rock overhang which descended to a series of stairs.

THE FIRST WATERFALL
This waterfall emanates from Daniel Creek, and cascades down a sheer face at 60 feet. Then it cascades into a small pool at the base of the canyon, and continues down through a boulder-strewn stream bed.
