Cloudland Canyon State Park features canyon overlooks, breathtaking cascading waterfalls, and miles of scenic hiking. The most popular trail is Waterfall Trail. This trail consists of numerous steps that drop 400 foot to Cherokee Falls and Hemlock Falls. The hike down is a workout but the beauty of the falls is worth it. The entry fee is $5 and there is a large parking lot. During the spring and summer months, parking fills up fast. If parking is full, you will not be able to enter the park.
Elevation: 800 to 1980 feet
Pigeon Mountain is a summit full of wildlife, miles of hiking trails, amazing views overlooking the countryside, mines, and unique natural features including the rock towers of Rocktown, waterfalls and caves. Petty John's Cave and Ellison's Cave (12th deepest pit cave in the United States) are located on the mountain. The trails are wooded and moderate. You can drive up the mountain in any car, but the roads are a little rough. The drive is great for trucks and larger vehicles!
