        New Salem

      One of Georgia’s largest parks, Cloudland Canyon
      State Park, on the edge of Lookout Mountain, boasts
      spectacular sunsets, gorgeous panoramic vistas, and
      a wealth of flora and fauna. Take in the grandeur
      of plunging waterfalls and the elegance of trickling
      woodland creeks both working together to carve
      1,000-foot-deep canyons and caves along the way.
      Popular hiking trails include the short Overlook Trail, the
      moderate West Rim Loop Trail, and the more-strenuous
      Waterfall Trails. Mountain bikers pedal to the Five Points
      Recreation Area and along the Cloudland Connector
      Trail. The park also offers disc golf, a fishing pond,
      equestrian trails, and overlooks.

      Campers can set up in fully equipped cozy cottages
      or yurts along with 70+ tent, trailer, and RV campsites.
