Cloudland Canyon State Park is one of Georgia’s most breathtaking parks. Situated on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this fantastical park is home to thousand-foot deep canyons, waterfalls, dense woodland, cascading creeks, sandstone cliffs, and wild caves. It’s one of the most picturesque sites your doggo will ever lay their eyes on.
When it comes to hiking, Cloudland Canyon has you
covered. With nearly two dozen trails to choose from, your pup will be in
heaven! Trails range from under half a mile up to 3.5 miles. Most are pretty short. You may need to
combine a few so your pal gets a good workout. For a panoramic view of the
canyon, follow the one mile Overlook Trail. If your pup wants a longer hike, hop on the West Rim Loop Trail. This five mile
loop is basically a sample platter of the park’s amazing terrain. You’ll
experience deep canyons, thick forests, amazing views, and cool geology.
A trip to Cloudland Canyon is not complete without your camera.
You don’t want to miss an opportunity to take countless photos of the gorgeous
vistas and unique natural features. Plus, the park has an annual photo contest.
