Providence Canyon State Park
Often referred to as \"Georgia's Little Grand Canyon,\" this scenic 1,109 acre park offers three miles of hiking trails, seven miles of backcountry trails, pioneer camping, two picnic shelters, and an interpretive center.
We are fairly new to Georgia and love to sight see. We came across this park by accident. Pack a cooler with drinks and food for a wonderful day out with the family. Great hiking, great excerise and beautiful scenery! We have been back twice and will do it again. I took my four young teenage kids plus one, and my neighbors a family of 5. Hope you get a chance to visit this park.
The family just came back from there, made a day trip while staying on Lake George. I had heard that this was a unique and beautiful site, and it really was. Hard to believe this as formed just in the last 200 years. Reminded us a great deal of the Grand Canyon, just on a much smaller scale. Warning, the hike on the white trail down to the floor of the canyon is not for anyone with physical limitations. The colors are amazing and make for incredible photos. Would love to come back in the late fall when the leaves have changed, or in mid summer when the azaleas are in bloom.
The "Little Grand Canyon" is a ride worth taking, if you are anywhere near! It's majesty is indescribable. There are rock formations of every description, plus a written history of it's more famous visitor (John Wayne). The beauty has to be akin to the well known Grand Canyon, and only makes me want to see that area even more!
As a group of seniors who knew beforehand we wouldn't be able to hike down into the canyon, we had hoped to see plenty from the overlook up top. Not so. Trees have been allowed to grow up and obscure the view.
We had a great time. It really is similar to the Grand Canyon as far as strata and colors.
Of course in size and scope it can't compare to the Grand Canyon but I would highly recommend this park. While you're in the area go to Westville about 7 miles away.
