 State Park

 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.
