Hike Report: Cloudland Canyon State Park 5-7-11

Joan Hartvigsen of the Highland Rim chapter led this wonderful hike to North Georgia's Cloudland Canyon, affectionately called "The Grand Canyon of the East". The weather was beautiful and wildflowers and Rhododendron in bloom.

Our last trip there (March 2) we hiked the Sitton Gulf Trail which meanders below the gorge. This time around we went on the West Rim Loop and walked the edge of the canyon. We also visited the waterfalls. You do not want to leave without taking in the splendor of these falls. Once nameless, are now named. Waterfall #1 is now Cherokee Falls and Waterfall #2 is now Hemlock Falls.

Myself & Vicki Williams from Murfreesboro joined Tom & Joan Hartvigsen and Marietta Poteet from Highland Rim, Mary Cole from Nashville and Pat Serio from Knoxville on this 8 mile hike.
