Hike # 7 Cloudland Canyon, 8am, Saturday

Cloudland Canyon State Park Waterfalls and Sitton Gulch Trail.  Rising Fawn, Georgia.  Hike Leader  Joan Hartvigsen  7 miles strenuous.. 

This  Georgia park is located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain.  The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by combined waters of Bear and Daniels Creeks.  The Waterfalls Trail  consists of gravel and  1,200 stair steps.  Both waterfalls cascade off of sheer faces at  60 and 90 feet, and are among the most beautiful in the state.  The Sitton  Gulch Trail  follows Daniel Creek through open, green hemlock groves and overlooks numerous small waterfalls cascading through limestone crevices.  The autumn color is magnificent
