Caledonia Cascade Falls - Trip Details
The trails to the bottom of the gorge don't offer much opportunity to enjoy Caledonia Cascade. Instead, you can stick to the South Rim Trail to catch the best views.
An added benefit is that the south rim trail doesn't have nearly the elevation changes as others in the park that descend to the bottom of the 1000' deep gorge.
This hike will also take you by the Wallenda tower that was used as an anchor point for Karl Wallenda's famous tight rope crossing of Tallulah Gorge in 1970. So, you git a bit of history and gorgeous views of nature too!
Some of the other highlights of the South Rim Trail include Tempesta Falls and Hurricane Falls. Further along, you can also catch glimpses of Oceana Falls deep in the gorge.
