|Today, we hiked on the Panther Creek Trail in GA from Panther Creek Park near Tallulah Falls, GA to Panther Creek Falls and back. 7 mi. round trip.|
HIKERS: Greta Driggers, Jim Driggers, Bill Hunt, Don Preece and Vic Robson.
TRAIL INFO. - One of the most popular trails in the state of Georgia, this trail is beautiful as it follows Panther Creek from Highway 441 near Tallulah Falls 8 miles to Yonah Dam. We hiked out 3.5 miles to Panther Creek Falls and back. Even though the trail is extremely popular, it has some very tricky and dangerous footing, especially as you approach the falls.
Directions: Panther Creek Park is about 3 miles south of Tallulah Falls, GA. From the south, take Highway 441 northward toward Tallulah Falls, GA. After passing Hollywood (traffic light) continue on 441 for a several miles and turn left and then turn right on old Historic Hwy 441 and continue until you see the sign for Panther Creek Park turn left into the park.
Another great day for a hike! Partly Cloudy and cool with temperatures ranging from 41 to 53 degrees F.
WILDFLOWERS IN BLOOM: none
BIRDS IDENTIFIED: Crow, Chickadee and Nuthatch .
