2017 Save The Date - AUGUST 4 - 6

Cloudland Canyon Adventure
Dade County, GA

Join the Georgia Conservancy for an incredible weekend of caving, hiking, live music from All the Locals and all-around outdoor adventure at Cloudland Canyon State Park. Cloudland Canyon is located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain and was formed as Sitton Gulch Creek cut its way into the surrounding sandstone. The canyon’s elevation ranges from 800 feet at the floor to 1,980 feet at the rim. Cloudland Canyon offers scenic walks and challenging hikes, including a trail leading to two cascading waterfalls, Cherokee Falls and Hemlock Falls.

Guests on our Cloudland Canyon Adventure Weekend can choose between primitive camping or a rustic bunkhouse (four rooms of bunk beds, two gender specific rooms and two co-ed rooms) located on top of the mountain.

All guests will be invited to join in the afternoon activities that include waterfall walk-in hiking, a special caving trip to Howard's Waterfall Cave hosted by Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc., and live soul music.

This year, we're offering a special Georgia Conservancy Cambium Member lodging in Cloudland Canyon's well-appointed cabins located at the canyon rim. Cambium Members will be treated to an American Spirit Works cocktail hour on Friday and Saturday and will be provided with special home-cooked breakfast and a separate lunch. All other meals and activities will be shared with the larger group.
