AUGUST 3 - 5

Cloudland Canyon Adventure
Dade County, GA

Join the Georgia Conservancy for an incredible weekend of caving, hiking, camping, live music 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, a rustic “summer camp style” bunkhouse (four rooms of bunk beds, two gender specific rooms and two co-ed rooms), and Canyon-side cabins!

Guests will be able to sign-up (max 30) for a special caving trip to Howard's Waterfall Cave hosted by Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc., and free afternoon activities that include several hiking options.

Another activity available is advanced mountain biking or hiking on the 5 Points Recreation Area and the Cloudland Connector Trails (this activity will not be guided by GC staff).

Local Georgia in-kind sponsors/donors for the weekend include: Cafe Campesino Roastery, American Spirit Whiskey, and Sweetwater Brewing Company.

Trip Price: Backcountry Camping - $100; Bunkhouse $150; Cabins - $250
